In a comment to this post, I had a request for a copy of my log form.
This is the chart (log form) I use to record our weekly box activities. As stated previously, I put it in a page protector and use a wet erase marker to fill it in. It can be downloaded in pdf form here.
I thought I'd share what the abbreviations stand for. I hope this gives you a better idea of how I use it.
H: History - all of our history readings for the week
T: Timeline book
W: Writing (the asterisk lets me know that it requires my instruction - in this example, a new IEW unit that needs to be explained - I don't use them for items that need regular instruction, like math)
FUN: anything extra that I want to add to break up the school day
FL: Foreign Language
PS: President Slideshow - This was year-long project involving every president of the US, so it got its own abbreviation. More temporary activities would be noted a different way.
C: I honestly don't remember. It must have been something we did for awhile, then quit.
Let me know if there are any other questions, or if you have trouble downloading the form.
