    We use the curriculum plans for everyone's school work (either the full core plans, or the write it in yourself kind for the high schoolers) and I keep a paper planner for family things. This is for appointments, sports, my work, etc. I do not duplicate anything from their school in my personal planner. I keep a Google calendar with notifications on my phone for obligations outside the house. I'm likely to forget them otherwise.

    We do not have any set daily work schedule. In our 12th year homeschooling the motto is simply "do your work." πŸ˜†

    When we sit down to do a subject together, I grab the TM. They stay in an adjacent drawer if they are mostly for checking work. They stay on the table near the school books if I use them daily (think R&S Math, literature).

    Instead of a planner, I have a rhythm/schedule posted. It goes through a few rough drafts as we get into the year and see how reality contrasts with the ideal, but I reference it to make sure I get the subjects done, and I use the curriculum manual for the actual assignments each day.

    Unrelated perhaps, but my husband and I both use and share google calendar so I check that each morning to make sure I haven’t forgotten about a dentist appointment or swim meet or something!

    here is the draft I sketched out today but I am already going to change it. Phonics with a K’er as he’s hungry for lunch is a disaster!

    I'm new to using a planner for our homeschool. Though it's been 6 years now. I have a 5th, 3rd, K this year. So It seemed like time to get organized! πŸ˜†

    My question do you use/do you use a planner AND the TM?
    ​​​​​​We just started school this week.
    I'm thinking of following the TM for each child, building a master list in my planner. No details, just the subject to be done that day.
    Is this sustainable? What do you do?
    I'm a disorganized person in general, but I'm trying!! I have four kids and I can't keep up the fly by the seat of my pants that I have always done.
