Several months back I mentioned a homeschool tool I absolutely love. Well, I still love it and today I get to share with you a giveaway and a great deal on this indispensable little tool!
What is it?
Let me tell you a little bit more about it, so you can see why I would not be without this online planning site.
First of all, I have never found a homeschool planning software I liked. I’ve tried a lot and failed a lot. I was incredibly skeptical about Scholaric, but I had a coupon for 3 free months and decided I would give it a shot.
2 weeks into it, I was amazed and thrilled! It worked!
To break down the screenshot above, you’ll see on the left hand side the subjects (or courses) my daughter was working on in September. I plugged those in, but most of them Scholaric recognized as soon as I started typing and autofilled for me. When she finished her math a few weeks ago, I simply hid the course, but it still kept the hours she worked on that course available, making it perfect for the homeschool family who has no problem moving to new curriculum in the middle of a school year.
Next, you will see dates and boxes for each of those subjects by date. The beauty of this is I can plug in assignments and leave them for her to do which show up in BLUE or she can complete a project and add it in herself. Either way, when the assignment is complete, one of us can go in and mark it Complete and the assignment turns BLACK.
I can also Share the assignment with all of the children or just some of the children by checking the box next to their names in the popup window.
While I do not typically keep record of time spent on school, I decided to go ahead and use that feature of Scholaric to see just where we were in regards to time. Interestingly enough, this has become a little game my older children like to use to “beat” each other in hours.
One of my favorite features is the little arrow beside every assignment that allows you to move it forward or backward on the schedule! If you don’t get to something that day, no problem! Just move it!
I use Scholaric on my iPad, but because it is an online program, it is available anywhere, anytime. Even Dad can log in and check the children’s progress throughout the day!
Here is the LINK which gives you 6 months for the price of 3.
And here is the giveaway…I know you will love Scholaric as much as I do!
