Then I place two divider tabs for the days it takes me to complete the one day of the unit. I’ve found that usually I can evenly divide one day’s workload into two.
Then behind each day tab I made an assignment sheet to help my daughter and I know what activities we need to do each day. Each day my daughter does her two vocabulary words, and we read at least 1-2 books on the topic together. Sometimes we have additional crafts or projects to do along with working though the unit materials. This sheet is not necessary for the unit, but is something I added to help our day go smoother.
Once a unit is completed, I move all the papers from the white working notebook into a big 3″ blue notebook that holds all our completed units. You can find a free cover from The Old School House store. Then I reuse the tabs, pockets and notebook for our next download.

The Australia Download N Go unit was given to me for review purposes. No other compensation was given. All opinions expressed in this post are mine.
