Our choices, good and bad, as well as recommendations, what's working, and what's not.
Well, after much searching and some begging and pleading with well-known publishers of teacher planners, I still wasn't able to find (or have one created) a planner that met my specific needs or artistic desire for something pretty and functional. So, alright then. I set about and created my own. It is still not the perfect piece of professional quality that I would have loved, but it is colorful, creative, and, if I may say so myself, rather awesome. It is tailored to meet my (and The Monk's) needs for his learning and my record keeping. Everything is in a rather larger 3" binder, but at least everything is together and it is able to hold my spiral that I've used for my planning/pacing guide. I have all my records, weekly calendars, monthly planning pages, and family activities in one place. Like I said, it's not perfect, but I'm content and confident that this will see me through the year. I sure hope so with all the time, energy, and resources that went into creating this thing. Now onto the next homeschooling prep project - a resource binder for The Monk to use.
