This week, I discovered Trello, and I’m loving it for organizing our homeschool year!
I am hoping to apply Charlotte Mason’s principles more completely next school year, and so in preparation, I purchased ADE’s scheduling cards. But the cards were messy, and scattered by the children when I walked away, and I didn’t want to leave them out for days at a time–and I knew it was going to take days to settle on a schedule, and even then, I knew it would change. I had heard someone mention Trello, so I finally got around to checking it out.
I am only showing small screenshots because so much of this information come from Sabbath Mood Homeschool–I just want you to see how I’m applying it.
My schedule is unusual, and my kids get passed between hubby and my mom and me, so an app will help us check things off together. Here, I made a checklist for the work we do daily. For the work that needs to be done a certain number of times each week, I added a card to the weekly work list. I created a card per topic and listed “Day 1,” “Day 2,” etc as a checklist on the card.
Each time we tackle Spanish, for example, I will be able to check off that we’ve done it. The goal would be to complete all checklists in one week.
I’m excited to see how I’m able to use Trello in the coming year!
