I put the work that requires me on the left side and work she can do alone or with someone other than me on the right side. I added in some busy work to what I had originally planned so that she could have things to do on her own when the rest of us were busy. The busy work includes Lollipop Logic and reading mazes. I put the reading book for the week in the Monday folder then pass it to the next day. The other things in the folder are a page from Artistic Pursuits, the ETC lesson for the day, the Saxon sheet for the day, a page for Math In Focus, and two copies of her handwriting sheet. On the occasional day when everything in the folder isn't finished, the leftover work gets put into the next day's folder. This only happened twice so far, and she didn't balk at the "extra" work.
It all works pretty well unless we don't get started first thing after breakfast. If I let her wander off and do something else before her work is done, she's a bear.

|Where CC spent the week|
We have 95% decided to drop CC's enrichment school. It isn't meeting our expectations. We'll need to replace the Spanish and the writing, but I think enrichment school is more clutter in our lives than an important part of our school.
I still need serious work on my Wednesday. It just isn't working out for us. I have three work meetings that day and for the last two weeks, we've had first grade tears on Wednesday. I think this week I will add more stories and poetry and less written work to Wednesday to see if that is better.
