Homeschool planning is obviously a big deal for a lot of moms because everyone has an opinion (and blog post) about how it should be done. I confess I am much more of a go with the flow type homeschooler overall. So I’m not going to offer up some detailed step-by-step guide. I could, but I’m not going to.
What I do have is something I think is more valuable. It’s a simple page that will help you before you get into the thick of curriculum selection and planning. It is focused on reflecting on the great, the good, the meh, and the bad so you can plan more intentionally.
Before you jump into that printing off your free PDF, there is one other point I want to make about revising your plans. Revising throughout the year is not failure. Revising your plans demonstrates insight and flexibility. That’s why I put a lot of different options in the planners I created. That’s why I created a planner that goes into a three ring binder. Life changes so much. Our kids change so much. There is absolutely no reason to be locked into the same thing all year. If you need to switch things up a couple of times during the school year, do it! Don’t feel badly about it. Be glad you have the freedom to do so! Maybe your kids are in major age disequilibrium. Do what works.
The printables below come in four versions that coordinate with my homeschool planners. Feel free to choose the design you like best!
