A New Site to Share~ and "Handouts"

Here is a new site I just learned about this morning from my good homeschool friend Chrissy, this site has lots of information and goodies and I just had to share~ Mellissa Forney.com




Free handouts is where you can find some downloadable freebies!

A favorite is the Young Writers Survival Kit. I loved it~The Writers Toolbox is also a neat printable to be used for Mini-office etc.. We will definitely be printing and using this for our new year :)

Summer Series: Planning and Organizing with Lists~

I have am on the mend as they say, and starting to get some energy back so I have been spending my time ( while I have to rest often) continuing on with our years organizations and planning....


Most recently I learned about these "color coded progress lists" from another homeschool blog I follow "Amongst Lovely Things". I really enjoy this blog and thought my own readers might enjoy this idea for organizing your year of studies.

In reading how Sarah ( owner, creator of Amongst Lovely Things) breaks down her year I could see very easily how we could also do this if we wanted while using Homeschool Tracker Online. ( online tracking and record keeping planner) -{see notes below for an update on HST Online.}


I enjoyed Sarah's ideas and thought you might enjoy them as well~



Homeschool Tracker Online Notes~   I continue to learn more on how best I can use this online planner. I am really starting to understand and enjoy how the planner works.  One favorite component they have is the Daily Task List that you can print out Daily so that the learner has their very own check list of the assignments for that day~ wonderful way for encouraging independence, responsibility and time management.  I continue to ask lots of questions on their forum and can really begin to see the benefits of using this program for the remaining time of our home learning.
