Free Printables!

My family begins school on Labor Day every year. My general pattern is to randomly collect books that catch my eye throughout the summer and pile them in a corner until it topples. By August, I realize the new school year is looming and I sit down to do some actual planning.

The first course of action is to figures out what options I have. There are always about twice as many options as what can actually be given to my children without bordering on abuse. It helps to look at the big picture and see what really suits us. Generally, I can't see it on my own. I take my list and pray over it. God knows what my kids need to study. The trick is stepping back and listening.

To get a look at what our year might look like, I use this Course of Study form. I fill it up and rearrange a few times. I pray. I rearrange. I pray. I rearrange. I make a new copy and fill it in with my plans for the year. The new form can be saved and used as a reference for when younger siblings someday begin that same grade. In the link, I have provided 3 free copies of the form, in different fonts to suit your preference. Let me know what you think! Also, let me know what other forms you might find handy. I love making these pages and would love new ideas for helpful printables.

I'll be sharing something new each day, so be sure to check back.

As we approach the new school year, it's a great time to check out many other helpful articles from Schoolhouse Crew Members. Be sure to follow the link below for some great ideas!
