In the past, I have written about the TOS Schoolhouse Planner. It’s a mega sized ebook with pages upon pages of forms to help you gain control in your homeschool. We don’t use each page, but we’ve availed ourselves of several of the pages over the past few years.
Now we’ve moved into the realm of high school and I, for one, was thrilled to have the opportunity to review the TOS Schoolhouse Planner for High School. There is something about moving into the high school years that makes a homeschool mother feel like she’s started from scratch again.
Trying to map out a 4 year course of study for your high school student? There are options for doing just that!
Here’s a partially completed one that we worked on using our charter’s school’s guidelines. A few decisions still have to be made and we can add them later. As completed, the dates can be filled in with pen or pencil on the printed form.
Want to make sure your child knows when he or she has obligations that you know about? You can type them into a monthly calendar and then pass it to them for additions.
For some of the courses P will complete, there is some planning to be done by us. Alaska history is one such course, so I titled a page with it so we can take pen to paper and map it all out using resources available in the community.
For your busy high school student, there is an entire section of organizational forms just waiting for you to give them. One of the newer groups in that category is for those active in Scouting. When I heard they were adding this group, I wasn’t sure what could be included that we’d even use. I was happy to see that they did a fantastic job providing a multi-page form that allows your scout to track their activities. I didn’t want to share completed forms with anyone’s vital information already on them, but you can get an idea from this one I started when they prepared to attend summer camp.
We’re still pulling together a customized planner for P using the forms available in this ebook. I think the biggest challenge is not getting overwhelmed by all the options available and selecting what we need at the moment. Between course requirements and Scouting activities, he’ll need something to help him document his work. TOS has us covered for this and beyond.
By the time we kick off our official school year in August, we plan to have his completely customized student planner pulled together and either bound nice or in a binder. As some say…having things in one place is key to organization.
