If you’ve been looking for a homeschool lesson planner, this editable homeschool planner will be right up your alley!
I know what it’s like, as a homeschool mom, to want things organized.
It isn’t that you want to micro-manage every minute of every day… you just don’t want things to fall through the cracks.
Depending on how many kids you have, this need gets greater and greater as the days, weeks, and months go by. The key, however, is to create some organizing and routine systems that work like clockwork. That are on autopilot. You do them regularly then get on with your homeschooling day.
That’s what a homeschool lesson planner will do for you.
Even better if you can edit it on your computer before printing, right?
If you are in the market for an editable homeschool planner that will let you type in your daily, weekly, or monthly to do items, then this will help. You can just open it up with Word, Pages, or Adobe Reader and type in whatever you need, then print.
An Editable Homeschool (Lesson) Planner
You can use this planner for lessons, daily to dos, project to dos, schedules, routines, and anything else you need to help you organize your family’s homeschool.
I use different printouts at different times, depending on my need, and I don’t feel tied into any certain system that doesn’t work for us at the time. The biggest challenge of homeschooling is finding out what works… once you do, you simply repeat it!
Editable Daily Homeschool Printable
If you want to plan your day ahead (whether one day or a few days in advance) this will help you do that. Many moms like an hour by hour routine to help keep everyone on track.
Others prefer a loose daily routine, but whichever you prefer writing it down is a good idea. In the business world, there’s a saying…
What gets measured, gets improved. P. Drucker
Meaning, if we aren’t keeping track of what we’re doing there’s little way to improve it. And our days are likely to fly by without including the things that mean more to us in the long run.
Additionally, you might want to use this paper to track what you have done, instead of what you want to do. Use it for a few days to track your current routine and find areas with room for improvement.
Editable Weekly Homeschool To Do List
The to-do list has been super helpful for me for a few reasons.
- If we are actively doing work and a thought comes into my head, I can write it down on the to do list and get back to my task.
- If works like a brain dump, getting all the To Dos out of your head and onto paper does wonders for your state of mind.
- You can put this into your homeschooling binder and have everything you need (almost like a task list) in one place.
Editable Monthly Homeschool Checklist
Some states require homeschools to do school a certain number of days a year. I am located in Florida and this is not one of our requirements, but if it is in your state (you can find that out here) then you’ll need a way to keep track of the days you do school.
I’ve created a monthly calendar here that you can use to check off days you do school, then keep it in your central homeschooling binder.
You can also use it for the following ways:
- To keep track of what subjects you do on what days
- Tracking any extras that you want to record (activities or things you don’t need to do every day)
- Let your child use this list to check off days when they complete certain practice towards a goal (e.g. riding a bike, etc.)
Editable Weekly Homeschool Schedule
We all know weekly schedules look different than daily ones. Maybe you want to do the basics (reading, writing, arithmetic) every day, but add in extras like history or science (for the early years) only on certain days a week.
That’s when your weekly schedule comes in.
Use it in the following ways:
- Write in things that must happen weekly (co-ops, lessons, standing appointments, etc.)
- Add subjects that might be looped in
- Write down your weekly goals and achievements, which gives you something to work towards each week!
Editable Homeschool Goals Printable
The type of mother who wants to school her kids at home is usually the type of mother who has goals for them. Dreams she wants to achieve! I am no different.
Before the school year started I wrote down goals I had for the kids. I didn’t have a goal in every area, of course, but I did in a few and wanted to mark those. Because, as we said earlier… What gets measured, gets improved.
Whether you write down the goals or your kids, having them written is a great start towards making them a reality.
Editable Weekly Lesson Planner
If you want to go through each child’s curriculum and plan out what they’ll do for that subject each day (and then hand it to them if they’re older!) then use the weekly lesson planner to do that.
Open the file in Word or Pages, type in the specific lessons per day per subject, then print! Voila.
Ready to quit keeping track of everything on post-its and get organized? I thought you might be… get your own homeschool lesson planner here.
