This is the time of year when most of us are updating our calendars and planners. If you are anything like me, you start out doing pretty well using a notebook planner, but it very soon becomes too cumbersome to keep up with. I find myself going weeks and even months without ever using a notebook planner. Because of this I end up forgetting appointments and important tasks that need to be done.
Thank the Lord, for online planners and calendars! Since I use a Mac, I use the calendar that it came pre-programmed with. I love that it also links with my google calendar in which my work supervisor posts reminders and tasks for me and my coworkers. I can also post appointments with alarms for myself so that I don’t forget them anymore. I also have the option to sync my phone with it.
As far as homeschool planning, I’m a big believer in the KISS (Keep it simple sweetie) principle. Using Time4Learning greatly simplifies the record keeping for my two youngest. I just print the reports and tuck them away into their portfolios.
