I created this planner in MS Publisher, but will add it here as a PDF for others to use if I can figure out how.Just tonight, while speaking with my husband about the boys' schedule, I realized tonight that I forgot to add "Computers" as a subject. He really wants to teach the boys Word and Excel--and at some stage teach them to build a computer from start to finish. So, if I were to recreate this, I'd add "Computers."This is similar to a planner I used two years ago and loved. I just thought I could customize it to better suit our school. Staples bound this with a blank cover page and then a protective plastic covering over that (40 weeks worth of copying) for under $9. Well worth it to me. I had each boy illustrate and label their own planner. You can see a partial of the cover below.
One thing I liked about this is that I could use the planner to teach my boys about scheduling. Even in Kindergarten, my oldest began to see his schedule for the week and I'd let him cross off what was completed. He even wanted to start to write in what was due. This year I'll plan to tell them what is due by the end of the week and allow them to write in what should be done in order to meet the deadline of what is due. Of course this won't work with all things, but it is like a class in and of itself, in my opinion--teaching time management and organization. I could use a lesson in this myself!
