For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not of yourselves it is the gift of God, not of works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

Monday, June 27, 2016 - TOS Review

Planning is not my strong point. I love the concept, but not the following through part. I like to lay out what it is that we will be doing for any given year, but the follow- through and the keeping track is another story.

That said I recently was given access to a 1 year subscription to an online planning and recording tool: They have put out a program called My School Year (Homeschool Record Keeping) to help homeschoolers set and keep track of their school year, as the name suggests.

So what is My School Year and how does it work? My School Year is an online record keeping program is pretty for homeschoolers. It is an online tool that allows you to keep track of what is happening in your homeschool and how the different components of your homeschool are progressing. I found it a pretty simple and straight forward program. if you are a planner at heart, it is not difficult to figure out how the program works. Once you get your login set up, you add the children enrolled in your homeschool. You get to set the school year's beginning and end date, the days of the week you plan on schooling, as well as any day off that you are planning to take.

Then, you set up the classes and lessons for each child enrolled. The process is pretty easy. You choose the subject, when that subject starts and ends, how you want it divided during the school year, and voila! The program even contains a function that allows it to divide the lessons for you according to the amount of day you want it divided into. You also get to set the class time for each subject.

I love the fact that you can put all the subjects in one place, and manually organize the lessons in the way that you want them. The whole plan is also editable so that you change anything if you wish too. You can even share the lesson plans between your students, or copy them.

My School Year also offers you a way to keep track of grades, with an option to customize your grading system. If you are a planner and likes to keep record of what you do in your homeschool, My School Year has you covered. It can track your attendance, how many school days in your year, books you are reading, hours of school completed, lessons, assignments, you name it! My School Year also offers you a way to keep track of rewards, transcripts, report cards, standardized tests. As an added bonus, you can also keep track of the extra-curricular stuff. My only complaint is that it is all online. I wish there were ways to print things up. I am a paper girl, so I wish I could print it and put it in a logbook or something.

If you are a planner and/or just a homeschooler looking for a way to organize your lesson plans so that you've got all your children and all their subjects in one place, My School Year is a program that you will want to check out.
