I am working on revamping our schedules to reflect the fact that my dd 6.5 is starting to do more independent work. Right now I keep everything on my master planning sheet and sort of tell her what to do as we go, but as she is gradually being able to take on more and more work, I would like to be able to just hand her a checklist of things she can do, rather than her coming back to me constantly saying "Mom, I finished ___, what can I do now?". I don't think a 'workbox' type system would work for us for a variety of reasons (space constraints, the type of work that we do, etc). I would love to see samples or ideas of how you keep your kids independent work organized.
The stuff she is doing independently by the way, if this helps:
- Math Drill on the computer (on the MUS site) and Math Facts Copywork
- French Lesson (Learnables) or French Video on the Computer
- Copywork (rotates between something of my choice 2-3x week, something of her choice 1x week, and an excerpt I have written down from one of her narrations 1-2x week)
- Read a section from the Christian Liberty Nature Reader or More Busy Times and be prepared to tell mom something you learned (sometimes she reads out loud to me too)
- Finish MUS Worksheet for the day (after we start it together to make sure she is on the right track)
