I have been wanting to make a planning form that fits my specific needs for my Tot School time (and all the time!) with my son. I have been utilizing the wonderful Planning Form at Homeschool Creations (she has a second one here), in which I put down what I wanted to get done each day. (I have found many wonderful resources from others: 1plus1plus1equals1, Happy and Blessed Home, Stir the Wonder.) However, my son sometimes has other plans — and attaching specific activities to specific days (or days of the week), has not been successful. Sometimes he loooves a certain activity or coloring material, and the next day he’ll despise it.
I wanted to make a list of all my ideas. I certainly don’t have to get to all of them, but it is a combined brainstorm list and checklist. I was getting frustrated with my organization and wanted to really tailor a schedule to my thoughts. It is set up into the four Montessori categories that I have been working with: Language, Mathematics, Sensory, and Practical Life.
Since we are using 1plus1plus1equals1’s Tot School ABCs as our primary resource, this Planning Form fits her printables for the weekly letter work. When we are done with this round of ABCs and move on, I will create a new one (or, if before then, I want to change things up, I ‘ll share that too).
You can download the Tot School Planning Form here. I hope it is a blessing to you!
I know that everyone wants something different, so in case the above one doesn’t suit your needs, here is the blank Tot School Planning Form!
We are using it for the first time this week, for Letter Ii. I will post another update on how it is going and more insight into the categories! So far, I absolutely love it and it has really helped me organize my thoughts and our time!
