Organize Your Homeschool with Trello Lists

I am a list maker so I fell in love with Trello,  a free collaboration tool that organizes your project lists into boards. In one glance, Trello tells you what’s being worked on, who’s working on what, and where something is in a process. I use Trello to organize my work, hobbies, menu plans, and home life.

Trello’s user interface features a basic virtual corkboard-like space to which you and your collaborators can pin task cards. Task cards can be arranged into columns such as “to do,” “in progress,” and “completed.” You can name and arrange the columns however you see fit. Each task card on your Trello board can be assigned to individuals in your group. Trello allows you to create and be a member of multiple boards.

Plan a Unit Study

Trello is a great for tool lesson planning or unit study planning.

Each board contains cards (cards have “a front” and ” a back”. My boards include projects, housework, homeschool, blogs, scrapbooking, etc.

housework

Overview:

  • BOARDS are made up of multiple LISTS
  • Each lists contains CARDS
  • Cards move from list to list to indicate progression.
  • Cards can be flipped over to use the back to make checklist, add web sites or images
  • You can share a board with a family member (Honey Do) or co-worker (development)

Homeschool Planning

It is great for organizing and planning your homeschool. When I run across a link, worksheet, or image I want to use later in the year I just add it to my list.

Collaboration

Each “board”, or list, can be shared with anyone (or kept private). Then they can work with you on your board in real time, including leaving comments, adding cards, or sliding them around. I share this board with my daughter in Florida. I’m teaching her how to design scrapbook kits. (the spelling and grammar list is an ongoing joke because we are both dyslexic).

  1. If you’d like improve Trello experience, you can try this Greasemonkey Userscript (or Tampermonkey, in case of Google Chrome) to add icons to Trello Labels: http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/176322

  2. This is hugely helpful, thank you for putting it together. My paper planning meshed with GCal with delegating tasks, and managing business, baby, honeschooling, and family is getting out of hand! How long does it take you to manage your cards and boards? Ie how often do you review and make changes. I have this fear that I’ll set things up but then run out of time to move cards around. If I do it once a week at a designated review time will that be sufficient?
