Daily Folders

While I was posting today I thought I'd post something that I've found that helps in my weekly planning... a file folder for each day.

I used to have just one set of folders, but now that my kids are each doing more of their own thing, I have two sets. (The cute zebra ones with the pink labels are my daughter's, and the plain colored ones are for my son.) When I'm doing my planning for the upcoming week, I put their assignment sheets or any copies I've made for them for that day into the appropriate folder. Since our combined subjects are on Friday, I just have one Friday folder into which I put our God's World News, mission study pages, Latin puzzles or other things we will be doing together on Fridays. This way, things are easy to get to and they don't have to wait for me to find our copies for that day. Nothing puts the brakes on good school-day-momentum than mom scrambling around looking for stuff!

This has been a simple step that has helped me tremendously!
