Daily Assignment Sheets Printable

Our girls have several subjects that they work on independently {math, typing, reading, Spanish, etc….}. At times, it can be a little difficult to track exactly what has been finished when and then get that information transferred into my planner and records. Pieces of notebook paper get lost in the shuffle, so it was time to get a little colorful and laminated.

Enter the Daily Assignment Sheet.

Each of the girls has their own sheet that is laminated. Their page has the subjects that they typically work on independently ~ basically any subject that they need to let me know the information about.

Here is a sample of McKenna’s page where she tracks what she read in her Bible, her math lessons, reading each day, bonus science studies, Spanish lessons, typing lessons and any ‘extras’ {like blogging or letter writing}. There is also a space for her to record goals that she {or I} has set to accomplish.

The girls use a wet erase {Vis-à-vis marker} to write down what they’ve done daily and then turn them into me at the end of the week. I can then transfer over the information. So far, it’s working great!

I did it again. Sometime when I have a little more time on my hands (and it’s not the middle of the night, ahem), I’ll post about our current system for planning and assignments. The two older kiddos each have an assignment sheet that I write the day’s assignments on the night before. They’ve been doing really well with this. It helps keep them on task, even when Mama is busy with another child.

But, the assignment sheets I downloaded from donnayoung.org are not an exact fit for us. I keep running out of blocks. So, I’m tinkering, again.

I was writing each day’s assignments in a different color of ink so the kiddos would have an easier time staying on the right day, but I thought maybe it would be easier if the day’s row was just a different color. We’ll try it.

So, here we go. These are proto-types, and I’m sure that I’ll make further mods, but feel free to use them and abuse them as you like.

Here’s the full-color version (click on the pic to access the pdf):

And here is the grayscale version (alternating days of white and light gray):

How this works:

  • Each day has 10 assignment blocks and each block has a box for checking it off once that assignment is completed.
  • The heading can be used for subjects, type of assignment (independent, family study, read aloud, etc), chores, whatever works for you, or just leave them blank.
  • I write each individual, school-related thing I would like that child to complete that day on their assignment (I may add chores at some point).
  • I write the day’s assignments the night before.
  • I DO NOT fill out the whole week in advance. That would overwhelm my kiddos and things never ever turn out the way I plan them.
  • I don’t use every single box every single day, but...
  • once I’ve covered the basics, I like to stick fun stuff in any empty boxes.

This assignment sheet helps me to know we are getting the core stuff done. And the kids know when they are done and can have some free time. Having a visual goal to work toward has been a great motivator…and it takes up a lot less space than workboxes
