Okay, okay. I know I said I wasn’t going to be very active around here for a while, but I’ve received more than one email asking if I will please, please, please share more about the binders.
And so I will.
I like you too much not to!
As long as you promise to forgive me for my camera acting up. Everything is stripey and dull, and I don’t know why.
So. The binders.
First, we have a couple shots of the tabbed dividers. Ya’ll know what tabs look like, right?
Like I said before, this is modeled after the Simply Charlotte Mason Scripture Memory System. I thought it was so brilliant that I adapted it to reading, and it has kept me organized ever since.
There are tabs for:
- Daily: This is where you put the newest cards, to be reviewed every day. I made my own tabs for this section. I used index paper and some Avery Write-On Tabs. The only other thing I needed was a three-hole punch.
- Even/Odd: This section works out to every-other-day review. Cards move to this section once the children know them well enough to skip a day here and there. I made my own tabs here, too.
- Days of the Week: These cards are reviewed on the given day (once per week). Please note that if you know you do not have lessons on a certain day, you should never put anything in that section!
- Numbers 1-31 Tab: This is where you put things that only need to be reviewed once in a blue moon. These stands for the dates in the month, and suggest monthly review, but really it is less often than that if you are like me and skip weekends.
