My older two children are basically independent learners – most of their subjects they study by themselves. I read their written work and we talk about a lot. At the beginning of each study block (term) the kids and I work on an assignment sheet for each of them. This helps them see a long term goal (like completing a series of lessons, a text book, or dvd series) broken down into weekly, or daily bite size pieces. They then use this assignment sheet to help them plan their study times. So there is very little for me to do on a weekly basis to get them ready for their week of lessons.
But the younger two are still dependent on me. I plan their weekly lessons and I direct how they spend their time daily. For our week to go well I need to be well prepared.
At the beginning of the year I outline the daily/weekly/monthly routines and the subjects we can slot into available times. Then each week I collect the lessons that I need for the coming week.
My control journal will hold
- Assignment sheets, for the term, for Josh and Jess (these are my copies, just so I am familiar with them and can monitor how they are going)
- Lesson Schedule, for the week, for Nomi and Daniel
