To keep track of what we get done each week, I created a simple chart. I put it up in my kitchen by a pen so I can easily and quickly put a check mark or write down what we do each day. Then I file them in a folder (eventually a notebook) and use it in a notebook portfolio for each older child at the end of the school year.
The formatting didn’t copy, but the top part is a table. The dates for Monday-Saturday of each week are written at the top.

At the bottom of the page I write down what we memorized, any field trips, unit study, and read-alouds (including what my oldest child is reading to himself).
