What time is it? School time!

Without a schedule I am an ineffective, inefficient, trifflin' hot gooey mess!

I can't get my world together if I don't have a plan.

I get totally overwhelmed and then do nothing! LOL. Are you like that or know someone like that?

This is my first year homeschooling and I am SO frazzled! Don told me to come here and I'm glad I did. I am just like you if I get overwhelmed I do nothing....that's why i am blog surfing.

I plan to start another blog just for my homeschool adventures....

I like your schedule I may use some of your ideas but I have to add 2 more kids to it.

Ms. Erika,
It gets easier each year. If you need a good place to start, start at the end. Meaning, if you are teaching off the cuff then just write down what you did with them, date it and record the amount of time spent so you have documentation. Then you can use this to know what you've covered and then it will make it easier to make a lesson plan moving forward.

Good luck!
