skeeterbug Posted September 13, 2012 Share Posted September 13, 2012 Of subjects/assignments they have to complete? Does it list everything they have to do? This is for my nearly 8yo. We are a "do the next thing" kind of homeschooling family, and aren't required to keep records. So I don't need a checklist of complete lesson x or page xx. I'd like to make a checklist of subjects- Monday you need to do math, spelling, writing, etc. Tuesday- math, grammar, latin. Etc. But what I find is that my checklist is becoming so long (it's full of short lessons) that it might be discouraging. He's always asking how much he has left, and I let him choose the order we do things in, so I thought a checklist would be helpful. I also want to begin encouraging independence. I love the one here, she is using HOD (we are not). (And she posts on here but I don't remember her username, so Hi! if you read this!) The problem is we don't do the same thing every day, so I need a different one for each day. And sometimes if we don't feel like doing science we'll do history instead (alternating days). So we don't always follow the plan. Basically I want ds to know that there is a certain amount of work we need to get done each day. Recommendations? I'm just overthinking this, right?
