Keeping Track of Home School in My Digital Planner - Dealing With School Closures

Are you trying to find a way to keep track of the kids school work? I know I've found myself in the position of being a home school teacher due to life's current circumstances. And, who knows when or IF the kids will even get to go back to school for the rest of this school year.

I live in Texas and as of today... the schools are closed until at least May 4th. This is another entire month of school that they have to complete at home.

My school district has all the kids set up in Google Classroom. While this is great, it can also be a little confusing. Not all teachers have their assignments set up the same. Some have due dates, some don't etc.

I considered keeping track of everything in a separate paper planner but I have 3 kids that need lesson plans. There is a fourth kid but he's in Pre-k and thank goodness his work is minimal.

So... this is the perfect opportunity for me to actually use the lesson plans that are included in my teacher planners. I had many people ask about these planners because they were removed from the shop at the beginning of the year. Because of this, I have opened the listing back up with a deep discount. 



I have also included lesson planning sheets in the monthly planner kits. If you are a member and have access to the monthly kit, you'll find the lesson plans in the bonus section. You just need to copy as many sheets as you need for the month. I personally need 3 sheets for every week - Each kid gets their own lesson plan. As seen above and below.


This has been a challenging time for everyone. I hope that my lesson plans can help make things run smoother for you... or at least help you manage and organize the chaos!

Please stay safe out there! And, if you are one of the people working in an essential field - Bless you for going out and making sure the rest of us have what we need during this time.

Much love - Michele
