It’s that time of year when we all breathe a little sigh of relief, knowing that summer is here. Or do we?
I do tend to breathe a bit easier, but that could be out of excitement too. This is the time of year when I start to plan my next homeschool year. I love all the planning of it, from picking curriculum to watching sales for school supplies, to creating schedules.
I don’t know about you, but I just love it when I have a set of pretty printables to go along with my planning and organization! It makes the whole process more exciting, don’t you think? Hopefully I’m not alone in my weirdness…
I figured if I love having printables to organize my homeschool, maybe you do too…so for the next 10 days, I’m going to be sharing a free printable each day with you that I use in my home! Some of these will be for organizing your life at home and some will be specific to your homeschool.
Come back each day, and take your pick as to which printables you will find helpful when planning and organizing a new year, or get them all sent you via email!
Create Your Monthly Focus
Along with monthly calendars, I like to have a monthly focus printable, where I can record my goals and priorities for the upcoming month.
I first set a few things I want to focus on for the month- that might look like, “phonics with Charlotte” or “character development” or “read more as a family.”
Then, knowing what I want to focus on, I can set my goals for the month. The goals will be my specific plan to achieve what I want to focus on. If I know I want to read more as a family, my goal might be to “read for 20 minutes each night as a family” or to “read 4 books aloud as a family.”
I also have a place to record any dates I need to be aware of that month, and a place for notes.
I find having this page right next to my monthly calendar in my planner helps me stay more focused throughout the month. I can also revisit the previous month when I am setting my focus and goals for the following month.
I’m giving you all 12 months of this Monthly Focus Printable! You can use this in your homeschool or in any area you need more focus in your life. I hope it helps you as it does me!
