    great suggestion with the stickie start and stop. I also do that but I’ve always just handwritten it in the book. It makes much more sense to use stickies since I hope to reuse the books with younger dd.

    I’ve also used a chore app on the ipad to list out lessons. DD seems to enjoy checking the boxes electronically, but it gives me a nice online completion record.

    I really need to consider this! especially for more expensive workbooks. And LOVE the start/stop bookmarks! Thank you for sharing!

    I love it , thank you so much for sharing how you do it , not necessary that it would work for us but because you already listed all the ways that didn’t work for you and it was the same for us only i felt Homeschooling is not working for us , something wrong in my teaching or my daughter’s williness to learn . And of course being stuck here at the end of the world alone without other homeschool families to shre with , small problem feels really big . his is where posts like yours become valuable , of course i don’t have trofast to try but now i feel i have another option than spend a fortune for one more piece of furniture hoping school would go smoothly , hey my husband loved your post , he said here’s one smart mummy who tries to work with simple things , hehe i just told him how is your current system , didn’t tell him all the other things you have tried , we are constantly arguing about how i keep wanting one more thing , and i really feel for him , we are on limited budget . Not that i can run to the store and buy one more thing but it just makes me unhappy and uncomfortable with how we are working and I waste time online trying to find help eying other people homeschool setting .
    We are using almost the same books in different subjects and following your blog and and my tina is a lot like Bear so I am going to steal you system and try it in our home for a while . can you tell me please what logic book you are using with bear ?? Tina loves them so i am always looking for new things .
    thanks again for sharing .

    I love the sticky start and stop too. You’ve inspired me to start assigning some independent work. I’ve been giving her so much free time so most of the time she’s drawing, cutting, and reading.

    This is a great post. I love getting an inside look on others as we are preparing to really get started.
