Help Children Keep Track of What's Coming Up Next in Their Learning Day with These Cute and Very Functional Subject Labels
Using labels is a fun and easy to way to keep things organized; and, in the case of our Academic Subject Labels, they also teach time management skills.
Use these labels to be set up a loose (or tight) learning schedule. Simply print out pages, cut apart subject cards on the lines and order according to the day's tasks. Laminate for durability and longevity. You can affix labels to a poster board, a bulletin board, or simply use low-tack painter's tape on a wall and grid out the day for each child. As children gain more organizational experience, you may have them order their day according to their preferences.
The picture above shows a sample schedule for one day on our homeschool bulletin board. It is a very simple setup and only takes a few minutes to complete. After laminating the pieces, I used an over-sized hole punch and simply hung the labels on push-pins. When the subjects were completed, our kiddo turned them over as a sign of accomplishment.
It is amazing how much more gets accomplished when children feel a bit more control over their learning. It doesn't need to be perfect, just fun!
As alternative option to using a bulletin board, a fun option is to use the wall. Grid out the day with low-tack painter's tape and affix labels with blue mac-tack. This variation is super-simple and leaves no markings on the wall either. Kids have fun helping to move around the pieces and make their learning schedule too.
