AngelBee, have you tried signing up to the forum? It's separate. Maybe try to see if you can sign up and ask on the forums?

AngelBee and joy seeker I started a thread on the Homeschool Skedtrak forum letting them know some people I shared their site with where having problems. Let's see what they say. Hopefully we'll get to the bottom of this. Imo it is worth a bit of hassle, hopefully you will like it as much too.

Not sure what was going on

This is what I had to do as well- not sure why but it worked! I had to use my gmail account (which I NEVER use) instead of my Yahoo account, wierd.

Thanks to you both!

I hope it is worth it, really I just need something to track my core and elective hours for my state requirements, this looked easy enough so I hope it works out for my unschooly self!

How is this working for everyone? I am still trying to figure out how to make it work the easiest for me.

I'm still working on our plans. I can only concentrate on it for 5-15 minutes here and there (much like my knitting mini breaks, lol) so it is not coming together really fast.

Any workbooks are easy to input as long as you don't find it necessary to add a lot details. I've assigned them both work in a math workbook and a language arts workbook, both set as its own course, set for such and such days. I set up the workbook for one student as a course. Then entered one activity- for Math, Complete marked rows of page (blank), for LA, Complete page (blank). Copied this enough times to last the school year. Then I copied both courses to the second student and then went back and added page #s. Really fast and easy. The workbook names were the same besides grade, but not page #s or I could have entered that once and copied it too.

I also did similiar for Spelling because the objective and activity stayed the same, only the words changed every week. So I copied the two lessons repeatedly for the year, copied to second student, then am going back and adding the words for each week because they differ for each student. Same for other courses where the activity doesn't change (or change much), like mid-week math dice drill and mulitiplication drill, both set as its own course to make it easy.

For History, Art, Science, Reading, and Copywork I have the focus of the lessons planned out and inputed, but not the actual activities for the entire year. For example, in course History, each unit is broken down into a time frame like this, FOCUS- Africa, Ancient Egypt. Copied enough times to fill that unit's span, 6 weeks, 3 days a week, so copied 17 times to equal 18 activities.

I have our first unit completely planned out, which is scheduled to last 6 weeks. We'll be studying Australia and Aborigines. I've been able to work further ahead in Art and History, but still have a lot of planning to do. I have all the books planned we'll be reading for Health, but not the activities. Because I'm planning this all myself and not following a curriculum or using only workbooks I've made quite a bit of work for myself, haven't I? It's sorta fun though and I'm taking it easy, bit by bit, and not stressing. I figure I'm at least 6 weeks ahead as of now, plus some, so that's something anyway. Much more than I've ever had before!

Oh yeah, and I'm pondering using this as a to do list for daily hygiene and chores for them as well. They love having lists for these things to check off, so it might work out nice for this and save paper too!

Question: for scheduling activities. How do you do it without using their "predicted" dates? :

anyone useing this for pre-school.

I was GOING to start tonight, but everything i read is Kindergarden on tracking.

I know there is no real reason to track pre-school, save i am OCD about record keeping and want to be able to show HIM (DS1) when he is older ...also to pratice, and to have to show family .. not so much cuz i need it to prove to anyone.

thoughts?

How's everyone liking it so far? I just got my account there. Is there a way to keep track of books dd#1 reads? Does this go in the hobby section?

I love it and the more I use it, the more I love it even more!

I use the Hobby Log to keep track of our read-alouds, just started using that feature though.
