I knew if I was going to be successful at home schooling I was going to have to find a way to get organized and manage our time. I am not the most organized person by nature but if I find a good system I can follow it and adapt it to fit my needs. There are so many great lesson plans and calendars available it can be a little overwhelming. I also wanted some way to add structure to our day to make sure I was able to cover everything in our lesson plan but also allow for independent work as well as flexibility to add/remove activities and change plans whenever we want. I also wanted something easy to use and understand so if i needed somebody else to “substitute teach” for me they would be able to step in easily and help out.
