Hi Lee,I was using the HomeScholar Planning Guide to start my planning for next year, but was having a little difficulty visualizing how classes might fit (without a lot of erasing!), so I came up with this idea that I thought I'd share with you. I put the planning guide on a poster board and used 3 x 3 inch squares for each grade and subject square. I'm using a whole post it note for a one credit class and half a post it note for a half-credit class. This way I can move the post-it notes around to see how classes might fit together for the year! I also can rearrange the notes to visualize how future classes might fit into the overall high school plan. I thought the idea might help others who are visual or hands-on oriented!Thanks again for all of your help! Have a great day!Blessings,

For many families, it seems that homeschooling just goes out the window during these times. It is possible to stay sane and continue Homeschooling the Holidays .

It struck the heart of my readers so much so, that I had people asking me for a poster of those non-academic qualities! So, here ya go. I've gone and
