2016 is Fast Approaching

2016

     Christmas is over and we are on our way to a new year.  This means it is time for me to begin setting up my new planner for the new year.  This year I am using 2 new planners. One is the Corie Clark Daily Planner and the other is the Living Well planner.  I am excited about both of these planners.  Here are some pictures of the cover and inside of the  Corie Clark planner.

“T” is for Teaching, Time Management, Trust and Technology

T

It is another day of the Blogging A to Z challenge.  Today’s letter is “T”.  “T”  brings to mind Teaching, Time Management, Trust, and Technology.

Because we are a homeschooling family, much of my time is spent teaching.  Sometimes it is teaching typical school subjects like math and language arts.  Other portions of my time is devoted to teaching life skills such as cooking, cleaning, yard work, grocery shopping and other such skills.

Next “T” brings to mind time management.  The better my children manage their time, the more free time they have.  Also the better we manage our time, the more extracurricular activities we can incorporate into our day.

Next, “T” brings to mind trust.  I need to trust my children to accomplish their schoolwork.  They need to be able to trust that I will do what is in their best interest.  Also I need to be able to trust that they will complete their work if I have to be away from the home from appointments or other reasons.

Finally, “T” brings to mind technology.  We utilize technology for so many things we do each day.  For example, we use the Internet to conduct searches and complete online courses through companies such as Alpha Omega’s Monarch curriculum and Videotext Interactive Online Algebra.  We use technology for doing daily Bible reading using Apps such as YouVersion.  We use Microsoft Office products to prepare papers, take notes and do presentations.

So that is what comes to mind when I hear the letter “T”.  What comes to your mind when you see the letter “T”?
