Quick Advice for College Forms & Transcripts by Beverly S. Krueger
If you've never been told by an experienced homeschooler to keep track of all the major and minor accomplishments of your high school aged children, I'm telling you now. Do it! I'm glad I had been working on my record keeping from the start. Even with all the proper records, it can be a scramble.

Customized Weekly Planner
I've put together an electronic weekly curriculum planner which I use to generate a weekly checklist for my kids. The weekly curriculum planner can be used to lay out weekly goals for the whole year. Quarterly you can do a mail merge in MSWord and generate a Weekly Student Planner for the quarter you are working in. This series of templates also allows for plenty of lined sheets between each week for recording other activities. These planners can be used as grade books as well...thus reducing the home teachers workload of multiple student and teacher planners, attendance books and grade books. Each student now has one book for ALL purposes...you can even add chores as you customize your own worksheets.     Andrew Bare

Homeschool Management Tips! by Tamara Eaton
Time-management has always been an interest of mine, but when I had four children in four and a half years, it became more than an interest, it was a matter of sheer survival. I couldn't possibly do everything, so I had to learn to establish priorities, find creative ways to do the necessary things, and put everything else on hold.Time-management has always been an interest of mine, but when I had four children in four and a half years, it became more than an interest, it was a matter of sheer survival.

Managing Our Time by Tamara Eaton
Successful time-management consists of so much more than who can get the most done in the least amount of time--as Christians, we want to be sure we're about our Father's business and fulfilling His plans for our lives. We need reminders of this often--it's easy to get caught up in doing, doing, doing and get ahead of the Lord so much that we end up asking Him to bless what we've already decided to do instead of waiting for His wisdom and timing.Successful time-management consists of so much more than who can get the most done in the least amount of time--as Christians, we want to be sure we're about our Father's business and fulfilling His plans for our lives.
