I asked to test and write a review on this product for a couple of reasons. Nove has trouble understanding what day comes next, and weeks or months are even more troublesome for her.
My hope was that this type of system which not only allows for future viewing like a typical calendar does- it also shows every family member’s schedule, would help her to “get” time lines.
I’m not sure how much you can actually see in my photo, but that is 2 weeks worth of planner.
My mom wrote out the schedules for everyone and then we showed Nove. Each page, has one week’s worth of days. On the top page, my Nove crossed off the days she had gotten through. She also crossed out the days her sister, her gramma and I had gotten through.
It became a bed time activity and is (I think) helping her not be so anxious about what comes next.
There are 7 rows for up to 7 people and the days of the week move down from the left side of the page. So, when we wrote out our schedules, My youngest, my oldest, my, and my mom’s days are listed from left to right.
The girls’ days are marked with school, after school activities, groups and even what type of school day it is. (ie: art, music, gym). My days are marked with work and doctor appts. or case management meetings.
This way, we see what each of us has and how to schedule each thing.
Here’s some stats on the wall calendar:
- two six-months-months-at-a-glance pages to help plan ahead for the holidays, vacations, or special events
- a page for next year’s important appointments and events
- key contacts pages for your emergency contact information and the phone numbers of doctors, coaches or babysitters
- a 4-inch pocket on the inside back cover to hold important papers, receipts or coupons
This desk set is a really versatile planner. I made one just for Nove, but she didn’t take to it like she did to the big one where she can see every one’s schedule all at once.
So, I made one for my business scheduling. In addition to trying to write for this blog, I also write for several other places and run a makeup business. Sometimes I lose track of what I’m doing and this is helping!
