Check it out! I was asked to design something for a non-profit homeschool group and it is being featured as an EXCLUSIVE FREE DOWNLOAD for members on their site! It is a simple goal setting planner sheet to encourage little ones to take part in planning. Just print and go! Can be used for daily, weekly, monthly, however you like.
The group members pass on curriculum to others for only the cost of shipping. Actually, that is not true, it goes beyond just curriculum and includes items for special needs and even clothing. Occasionally they receive a generous donation to pass on to a homeschool family in need.
I have included their mission statement below or click HERE to go to their welcome page and learn even more!
Homeschool Curriculum Free for Shipping (est. July 1st, 2014), a pay-it-forward homeschool community, is a non-profit organization that exists as a means of providing brand new and used curriculum for only the cost of shipping or even completely free to homeschool families in need. Recipients are encouraged to “pay-it-forward” after using the donations. The organization and Facebook group work together as a community with a twofold purpose. First, to serve as a resource for donors who are seeking to donate curriculum. Second, to support and encourage ALL homeschooling families, especially those who homeschool with financial constraints.
This is the beginning of a daily learning notebook.
To start with I have made a basic notebook with a calendar, tally sheet, 100 day tracker, weather graph and writing paper to compare handwriting from 1st day of school to the last. Set up in landscape mode so binding will not get in the way of left-handed children.
Will add more in the future, some free, others paid. Follow me here and on Teachers Pay Teachers to stay up-to-date.
Tic tac toe board and pieces. 2 sets of Xs and Os, one in color, the other in black and white. We laminated ours and used velcro dots to attach the pieces so they don’t slide around when playing. You could also use magnets. Free on my TPT site.
NEW ITEM! Took a nice winter vacation and came back with some new ideas, here is the first.
Current file is 7 pages with 60 labels for your homeschool workbox system or school bins. I will add more as requested and update this file, all future tags added will be available to you at no additional charge.
These are simple black and white labels that are designed to fit in 3.5×2.5 self-laminating pouches. Let the kids color, draw or add stickers before laminating for a fun personal touch.
Please leave feedback on my TPT site and request any labels you would like me to add to the file.

Some of you have noticed a change in my pages. I have been a Beachbody Coach for a few years and I :::gasp::: quit! Now, I want to make sure everyone knows I did not LEAVE, I just quit being a coach. I love the products and will continue to use them however my focus has changed:
1. Family & homeschooling
2. Writing my book.
3. Working on my very own business, AnaMaree Designs.
The thing that led me to this decision was actually Chalene Johnson’s 30 Day Push! It helped me get my priorities in order and figure out what I really want. I am still a HUGE fan of hers and will be doing PUSH ever year or so (the only “self-help” book I have ever read, used and re-read.
I am getting ready for 2015 and when I prepare for the new year I tend to buy a new planner, some pretty new notebooks and get ready to make my lists and ideas BLAH BLAH BLAH. The last few years of setting GOALS instead of “resolutions” has been amazing. Typically my resolutions are forgotten as fast as I set them, probably because I never considered how the fit with my priorities. Now I write down my priorities and set goals that work with them. Now the end of the year is a wonderful surprise!
For example, 2014 I set 10 goals (I rewrite them every month or so, but they basically stay the same). Today I look back and realize I completed 5 goals and have 2 more 80% complete!
That feels good.
It also reminded me of why I created this blog, for myself, to see how things change, how I change. The latest changes are a perfect example of the quote I chose above as I left something good to gain something better… for myself!
Good luck in all you do, and just be the BEST YOU that YOU can be 🙂
