It is time for the High School years and we will focus on that. Including my daughter's plans and interests as they prepare to leave the nest. In the past we have used Waldorf, Montessori, Lapbooking and TWTM in our homeschool and I will leave the working links up.
I organized our curriculum this year using the file box system but I put mine in a file drawer so it was out of the way but still within easy reach. One of the things I put in each file was the weekly schedule, as seen below.
This schedule tells me what we are doing for each subject that week. But what if I find something really neat that I want to use in an upcoming unit?
Do I dig through all the files scanning the schedules until I find the right one?
No, I look at my handy-dandy cross reference sheet. This is the sheet I made for math story topics for 2011 (OM3). I keep this in my daughter's school folder. So I find this neat activity on shapes, I check the math sheet and find the week we are doing shapes and stick it in that file.
It should make things easier.
This is the cross reference sheet I made for phonics for the rest of 2010. It has the week, the phonics concept and the story we will be reading. So if I come across any cool file-folder games or other activities that are not to be missed, I can easily add them to the file and use them if we want.
Just thought I would share how I made future filing of material easy with the cross-reference system.
