The Binder & Instructor’s Guide (IG)
The Instructor’s Guide is like BookShark holding your hand each day, reminding you to relax and take things one step at a time.
When you receive your BookShark order, you’ll receive a packet of paper that is your Instructor’s Guide. Your BookShark binder will come with 36 numbered tabs which represent 36 weeks of the school year.
Put the kids to bed, make a cup of tea, and take time to put all the weekly pages from the IG into your binder after their coordinating tabs. Yes, it’s slightly tedious but you will finish and then you’ll look at your beautiful BookShark binder and feel super organized and ready for anything that comes your way this year.
This is also the perfect time to add any extra things you want to do throughout the year to your plan. Your IG will have some blank spaces on each weekly plan. It will also include a blank week plan you can copy and add extra subjects.
Next, it’s helpful to grab a smaller binder to put a month or so of weeks into. A smaller binder is easier to fit in your tote and to flip through, and fits more nicely on your lap. It also helps you to focus on a small part of the year at a time and remind you that yes, you can do this!
