Other than the front trying to decide if it wants to hang on the coast or move on out to sea that is killing my sinuses, this is has been a nice weekend. It's nice that we have tomorrow to relax and do some light schoolwork and enjoy the rest of the summer.
My planning is so much easier this year thanks to Homeschool Tracker Plus. It is easily the best money I've spent on a product and the customer service is outstanding. You get free upgrades for well - ever.
I can put in lesson plans - and there are tons of groups with prewritten lesson plans or I can make my own. I can put in chores or appointments. I can log their reading or a video or a field trip. But the thing I love best in being able to enter my books in the library feature. I can do it by ISN number. It's great to be able to see what I have a glance.
You can get the basic version for free and the plus version for 49. http://www.homeschooltracker.com/default.aspx
I'm not an affiliate - just a homeschooler who loves this product.
I was blessed to be able to help out with Teacher Book Bags - 4th and Beyond Book Bag for the month of September. I wrote the Ocean Biomes and the Ring of Fire Units along with a few other writers. I can't say enough about Teacher Book Bag Products. They have file folder games and the monthly book bags have a treasure trove of information that can be used in many ways.
You can preview the entire book before buying.
Hope everyone has a blessed week!
