weekly planning with Tapestry of Grace

I think I posted this before, but this was one of those that got deleted! ūüė¶

Here (tog-weekly-plan.pdf)is the form that I use to plan out each week. The column on the right side I use for each child (or level) to list what books I have for them to read. On the left at the top is where I jot down notes. Usually the main objective for the week. Maybe extra activities I have, just whatever I feel like noting as I read through the week’s plan. The small boxes, with timeline, maps, evaluations, etc., I use as a checklist to show that I’ve printed¬†off all the pages that I need.¬†¬†Then under that I made out a general plan to follow each week. I jot in page numbers, etc to finish it out.

I start about a week before we plan to start a Tapestry week (ideally!) First I write down books we have or borrowed from the library. Then I just fill in all the rest as I read through the weeks plans. This format allows me to jot down notes in the appropriate boxes and it doesn’t really matter the order. When I’m done I know it will be all laid out for me. For things that need to be printed out like maps and evaluations, I usually do¬†a few weeks at a time. At the beginning of the year I actually made it through the entire first unit prior to starting school. But that hasn’t happened since then!

and for anyone who doesn’t know about Tapestry of Grace curriculum you can get a free 3-week sample here!

    We are just about to finish unit one. We have taken it too slow because I am learning and enjoying it very much. We are ready to have our Feast. What unit are you on? I have a 6th grader, 4th grader and a 1st grader. All girls. I need some one to keep me moving at a good pace. Look forward to talking to you!

Psalm 78:4

We will not hide them from their children, Telling to the generation to come the praises of the LORD, And His strength and His wonderful works that He has done.
