Creating Your Homeschool
Lesson Plans

Once you start homeschooling, you may find that homeschool lesson plans allow you to visually map out what you intend to do each day with your children.

It's the same as using a printed map or GPS if we want to quickly and accurately arrive at our destination when travelling.

Planning ahead allows you to be sure to have all your required books and materials available. The day will also progress more smoothly when YOU know what's ahead!

Plan for a Week

You will also want to do this for the home school lessons you create for your preschool age children.

It allows you to "see" where you are going!

You will list, or record in some way, everything you plan to introduce to your child. Include any homeschool materials needed and have a plan as to "how" to get the information across to your child.

So, an entry could include information such as:

Grade 6 Textbook
Pages 110-125
Quiz on Friday


Math 3
Lesson 14: Double Digit Multiplication
Pages 28-31
Review facts.

That's it! You can easily create basic plans like these or entries as detailed as you like.


Generally, the following options exist for recording your goals and objectives for the courses you teach:

  • Legal pad or spiral book to write down your proposed assignents
  • Teacher's Lesson Plan Book bought at a Teacher's store
  • Computer software

Initially, map out an entire week's worth of material, even if you can't accomplish as much as you plan.

It's always better to plan more assignments than you can accomplish than to run out of work and have your children waiting for you to pull things together.

It is always easier to maintain a child's interest while you have it than frantically try to recapture their interest after losing it!
