When my children were younger, the idea of writing
their name was exciting. However, the time of their squiggly
signatures was fading fast. I wanted a way of preserving their
changing signatures, without having to save every scrap of paper they
wrote on, or every art masterpiece. I came up with this.
Have the child sign their name, at the same approximate
date each month, for the whole school year. Repeat each year. It might
seem trivial now, but I promise it will be worth GOLD, in 20 years!
Alternative versions are coming!

180 Days of
I was having a discussion about school year planning,
when I realized something that was new to me;
"A typical school year is 180 days long. That happens
to also be the degrees of a half circle. A rainbow is a half circle.
Kids love rainbows. Kids love countdowns. Ergo; kids would love a
rainbow countdown for the 180 days of a school year!"
So I cranked open my Photoshop and got busy. Here is
what I came up with...
It's a count down calendar, where the kids can mark the
days. You can mark off each star, or color them in, or place a sticker
star on top of them. It is up to you!
I also laid out the typical 6 divisions of 6 week
school periods. I knew this would not make a difference, to those who
did not need it. But for some of us, it helps with goal setting.

Singapore Math Mini-Office
This is just a sample file. Curious if anyone
is interested in it. Let me know. E-mail for more information:
The idea behind my design for mini-offices, that is
different from others, is that it is designed to be able to be switched
out , as the child's needs require.
Here is a sample...

Mini Office Full Sheet
Instead of trying to get random parts, collected from
all over the web, to fit together on a side of a folder, I have designed
them to fit on a single sheet of printed paper.
WE THEN SLIP THEM INTO A CLEAR SHEET PROTECTOR, WHICH
IS TAPED TO THE FOLDER. Therefore, it is protected from wear, but easy
to exchange with a new sheet, when they child moves on. The clear sheet
protector stays, the sheets, are switched out.
So, please tell me if this is something you would be interested in.
