Goal Cards for Home-Schoolers

by Hannah Maple

To help my home-schooled children complete their daily assignments, I use a goal-card system. Each card contains a chart for tracking assignments, with a different subject listed above each column of the chart. In the math column, for example, the chart might read "pages 7 to 9," or in the history column, "pages 15 to 18." When they are done with that subject, they cross it off and set a new goal, with my approval, for the next day. Having a visible goal in each subject gives my children a feeling of accomplishment and me a consistent record of their work.
