After only 5 minutes of using the Organizer, I was sold. The ease of it, the time it will save, the way it just totally makes your days and record keeping so much more organized. It really is wonderful! I am very happy to say goodbye to the planning, erasing, re-planning merry-go-round I have been stuck on thus far!
How It Works
1. Choose your books
Choose from the thousands of living, CM-friendly books and other resources in the Bookfinder. We’ve entered our recommended living books already, plus other CM Organizer users can add and share resources too.
If you don’t see the book or resource you want to use, it’s easy to add your own. The CM Organizer can even look up the details for you from the ISBN number.
2. Schedule your books
Use the Resource Scheduler to tell the CM Organizer which student will use each book and how you want them to use it. Choose from a variety of Charlotte Mason-specific study methods such as Read and narrate and Do a picture study, or add your own method. Schedule a resource to start on any day, or choose to begin using it with or after a resource that’s already scheduled.
With the Scheduler’s chapter selector, you have complete freedom to customize which chapters you’ll use from each book. Schedule chapters in any order, or skip the ones you don’t need.
The Organizer has changed my life. I know that sounds dramatic, but truly I have found nothing else that serves me as well as this does.
3. Check off your progress
The Daily Plan shows you which resources you scheduled to use today. Just check off whether your child worked on an assignment or finished it. That’s all there is to it. The CM Organizer records your progress and shows you the next assignment.
You can work at your own pace. If you do an assignment from Wednesday on Monday, you can easily record it and the CM Organizer will update your schedule to match. And if you unexpectedly have to skip a day of school work, no problem. Your assignments will simply welcome you back and pick up right where you left off.
If you get behind recording school work, the Daily Plan has you covered. You can record work from any previous day whenever you have time.
4. Create your reports
Quickly create reports of work accomplished for any range of dates, whether it’s the entire school year or yesterday. There’s also an attendance report you can use if your state requires it. And you can create a bibliography report of all the resources you’ve used.
It was wonderful to simply print a report […] to turn in to our cover school. That is a task that could have taken me several days to put together on my own! It is a huge burden lifted to know I will never be behind in my paperwork. It frees me to spend my time and energy with my children.
