2. Have a weekly curriculum checklist to make sure you do not forget any subjects, assignments, etc. (you can dedicate one of the folder pockets to a weekly checklist folder).

3. Make sure you are familiar with the content your children will be learning the next week. Take a look over all of their chapters, tests, or projects, so you can be fully prepared for what they will be working towards.

4. At the end of the week make sure any completed assignments are placed into the appropriate folder so you can keep track of what they did and the date it was completed. When home schooling it is always a good idea to keep everything throughout the year for reference and as a record of what your child has accomplished.
