I would like the kids to become more independent with school work during the upcoming school year.  I think using their very own planner would be a fun way to encourage this behavior.  I've looked around for a student planner but none focus on what I would like them to.  So, I decided to make a kid-friendly version of my curriculum schedule.  I am super excited about them!  I photocopied the Week Overview of each unit from my teachers guide. (My Father's World -Exploring Countries and Cultures)  Each assignment/subject has a handy check mark box that will work perfectly and enable the kids to keep track of their daily accomplishments.  I can add in the English and Math assignments.  The kids picked out the paper!  It is a light card-stock weight.  The binders are 1inch- 3 ring binders.  Each country is separated by color.  I didn't have enough colors for every country so I rotated through the colors.  I plan to save these planners and store them with our records at the end of the year.
