**I created this list after being continually inspired by Dawn and her wonderful ideas for homemaking and homeschooling. Her Themes and Plans lists and her Learning and Living list were the jumping off point for mine. I am hoping to create some seasonal binders similar to hers in the coming weeks as well.**

We have no little ones yet, but I teach 1st and 2nd grade, and used to teach preschool. I am always coming across things I would love to do for homeschooling and feel like I will never find them when the time comes to use them. Thanks for sharing your ideas and the links about a binder and filing system. I may use it for my classroom, too. (it's a bit like homeschooling since I have such a little class)

Brave lady to post your list! Now that you've done so, we're going to expect updates! ;-) We're on day three of our new rhythms/plans and so far so good!

WOW you seem to be organized--that is one of my goals I am working on!!

Pres. Kathy said...

What a good plan! I need one too!

Lists are my friend! I love the list you made, and I might think about making one for myself for this january. So far, I am baby stepping myself into daily lists or weekly lists.

Oh, btw, I put the button in the sidebar of my blog and have my first post up under it.

Be loved and blessed,
Eva

Organization is such a lifesaver for me! I know I'm a very type-A personality, but seriously, I don't understand how people can accomplish anything without lists!

Oh, and question: what is the "full wolf moon?"

I am a new Orthodox mom-to-be on and have been reading your blog for the past few weeks. I really enjoy it. So nice to see other Orthodox mom's and their homeschooling lists, etc. You should create a side bar link to all of your lists like Dawn's site.
