Through the years of Elementary & Seconday Education, I’ve taken ‘class schedules’ one step further. I scan them into my PC and make them my computer’s desktop background. Whenever I minimize whatever I’m working on or switch programs, instantly I can “see” with a glance at the clock in the taskbar exactly when and what Megan is supposed to be doing.
As chaotic as balancing spouse caregiving and basically single parenting has been, being able to periodically focus throughout the day on what Megan is doing, and when, during the school day has helped me to try and communicate better. For example, “I guess Calculus was useless today with the snow beginning to fall at the start of class.”
Once upon a time, it was the refrigerator in the kitchen, but now days your PC’s desktop background is the best of possible bulletin boards.
