Clipboards make school fun!

This is a recycled post from a while ago, but because we still use these every single day, I thought it was totally worth re-posting.  This first paragraph is newly added ;)

I feel absolutely lost without my clipboard.  It is wear I keep my menu plan for the week, and all my upcoming reviews, as well as each child's weekly plan of what schoolwork should be done that week.  I also keep any notes I have been taking from an online homeschooling class I have been taking.  I love my clipboard.  My children all love theirs.  On theirs they each keep their weekly plan, along with any worksheets for the day that need to be completed.  On their weekly plan I also write in which room in the house they will need to be in charge of cleaning each day, along with any outside activities they have, scouts, dance, basketball, etc. 

This works for us! 

 I got this fun idea from Blue Cricket Designs, we made clipboards! I love clipboards, you can do work anywhere. As my daughter says, "These are so stylish!"
We took some scrapbook paper and cut to fit. I also ripped a piece to add some dimension. Then we just used Mod Podge to glue it on. They loved getting to choose what they would look like, and it's a great way to tell them apart. It feels like their own little desk, right there at the kitchen table.
