Module Five: Homeschool Book Of Days

The, 18 page, stand alone module which works as a journal of your homeschool journey.

Inside this module you'll find 4 different weeks worth of papers to record the happenings in your own little homeschool. There are places to jot down history, reading, math, life skills, games, computer work, language arts, sport, art, & music. It also sports it's own cover {exactly the same as the one from the planner} for those who'd prefer to only use the journal.

This module is similar to the one I've shared before, but I did change this one up a bit. I rearranged the boxes and adjusted the sizes of some compared to how often I found myself writing in one verse another. I also added a Weekly Doodle Box so my kids could take turn making me a doodle each week. They both love to draw and this is a fun way to have a special drawing in a safe place for special keeping. I don't ask them to draw about anything specific, it's completely up to them. I also added an Our picture Fun page where I can slip two pictures from the week in that might remind us of our studies from that week. My kids adore looking at photos, don't yours?

I prefer to print this module double sided so that it only takes up 2 fully printed pages {front & back} in my journal. While I keep these pages in our main planner, I remove them and put them in their own book once I've completed them. This way I'll have a record of everything we've done in one easy location. 

The fun part about the Homeschool Book Of Days is that when we're having a very unschooling kinda day, week, month it's still easy to jot down the educational things we've done! The science video we watched, the math game we played, the read alouds we enjoyed, and so on. 

Even on weeks when we might use something that's all ready planned out for us, and we don't need our regular planner, I fill in our journal. It's so fun at the end of the year to look back over all the things we've done! 

Buy Module Five: Homeschool Book Of Days now for only $10
Now only $7.50 for a limited time!

Why only 4 and not all 5?  Not everyone needs or uses a planner. There are weeks when I don't use my own planner but always use my journal. It's a great resource for keeping track of what you're doing on a daily basis, even those fun little conversations that can spark lots of research.

Are the Modules & Journal dated? No, despite the dates in the above pictures all
the date
{d} places within the modules are blank so you can fill them in as needed. We homeschool year round and I'm aware our dates will not match up with others who school differently. 

Do I need to print this on special paper? Not if you don't want. I prefer to print on both sides of my paper to take up less room in my binder & to save on the amount of paper I use. Because of this I prefer a slightly thicker paper so I don't get bleed through on the other side. I've used 100g paper for my binder and feel quite happy with the results. I printed the cover on this and it did just fine.

How do I print the cover so it takes fills the whole page? Simply make sure your printer is set for borderless printing and it should fill the whole page up! 

I've purchased the planner, printed it out, now what? You can choose to have your planner bound, store it in a three-ring notebook, or use a home binding machine on it. Personally, I really love using my ProClick Binder. It gives me the ease of spiral binding with the capability of a three-ring notebook. The choice is completely up to you! After you've got your binder/journal contained simply fill it in! It's your's, so make it personal and fill it in with all the goodies you'll want to remember while using it. I like to add pockets to mine to store bits and pieces in. 

Please Note: All files are PDF format and you can use Adobe Reader to view them with, which is free. Unless otherwise specified all files can be printed on A4 o US sized paper.
