I don’t write a schedule for math. My youngest sometimes takes two or more days to comprehend a concept. There are
months days when she has RCI (Rectal Cranial Inversion a.k.a. butthead attitude) that she can’t even answer 5+1. So, we just plug along…
Saxon Algebra books have their testing schedule written in the Test booklet. For example it says, “Test 3, Covers material up through: Lesson 12, Give after Lesson 16”. That’s great, but I don’t look at that booklet everyday to see if a test is coming up and those numbers do not stick in my head. How am I going to keep up with this? I know for a fact my youngest won’t remind me there is a test coming up!
To help my brain, I am using Post-it pads. Got the idea from Pinterest, of course.
Just print the template first, add fun notes on the template on your computer, stick blank post-it notes in the squares, place it in your printer and then print! That’s it. A warning, make sure you know the direction your printer prints. Insert the page so the post-it note stick part goes in first. :)
To make it really fun, I found math jokes on the internet. Some of the jokes I used I found here on Pinterest. I really like this one. LOL Not really a joke, though.
After printing out my reminders, I just posted them right in the textbook on the lesson that needs to be done AFTER the test. Since I sit with the daughter for each lesson, we BOTH will know she has to take a test.
I nailed it! At least this will help me from getting RCI.
