Getting Organized Recap for Week 1

Happy Saturday! I hope you are enjoying a day of fun with your family. Saturdays are our fun day because we have worked on our routines throughout the week.

 

Week 1 – June 1-5

 

Monday – Set your timer for 15 minutes for the Home Assignment and 15 minutes for the School assignment

Home: Empty your sink and make it shiny. Load dishwasher or put away clean dishes

School:  Start purging this year’s papers and books

(If this is your first year, start reading about curriculum options. DON’T buy anything just yet.)

Family Fun:  Go to the Library and sign up for the Summer Reading Program. Let your kids pick the books that interest them to read.

 

Tuesday – Set your timer for 15 minutes for the Home Assignment and 15 minutes for the School assignment

Home:  Make your bed when you get up. Shine your sink.

School: Pull books from your bookshelf that you no longer need. Put them in a box to give away. Put the box in the car.

(If this is your first year, read about Charlotte Mason and nature journaling.)

Family Fun:  Play some water games outside with your children.

 

Wednesday – Set your timer for 15 minutes for the Home Assignment and 15 minutes for the School assignment

Home:  Make your bed when you get up. Brush your teeth and get dressed down to lace up shoes. Shine your sink.

School: Go back to this year’s school books and finish purging what you do not need. File papers that you have to keep

according to state law.

(If this is your first year, research your state laws and start a permanent school file.)

Family Fun: Get out your bikes and go for a ride. If you don’t have bikes, go for a nature walk.

 

Thursday – Set your timer for 15 minutes for the Home Assignment and 15 minutes for the School assignment

Home: Make your bed when you get up. Brush your teeth and get dressed to the shoes. Shine your sink. Fill your water bottle.

School: Go back to your bookshelves and put them in the order you want them in. Put the ones you do not need any

more in a box to giveaway. Put the box in your car. You might have two boxes now. That’s ok. You are going to purge

one more day, and then you will donate what you have collected in your car. Do not leave the box in your house.

Family fun:  Take a nature walk with your children. Talk about the things you see along the way.

Next week your children are going to start a nature journal.

 

Friday – Set your timer for 15 minutes for the Home Assignment and 15 minutes for the School assignment

Home: Make your bed. Brush your teeth and get dressed to the shoes. Shine your sink. Fill your water bottle. Be thinking

about how you want to get moving today. There will ideas in the Family Fun section.

School: Since you have purged your school books for the year and worked on purging your bookshelves, today you are

going to start making a list of curriculum that you need to buy for the new school year. This is just a rough list. Next week,

you will start looking at prices.

 

Family Fun: It’s Friday! Time to take your donation books somewhere to drop them off. I like to donate used school books

to the Boys and Girls Club or anywhere that they do tutoring. While you are out making your donation, think of an activity

you and your children would enjoy. You can go to the park, go on a hike, go swimming, etc. Think of something you really

want to do for fun that all of you enjoy.
