Homeschool planning is obviously a big deal for moms because everyone has an opinion (and blog post) about how it should be done. I confess that as a relaxed homeschooler I am much more of a go with the flow type homeschooler overall so my planning looks a bit different. I do, however, have something very valuable for you before you plan your homeschool year.
This is 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 in your homeschool life so you can plan more intentionally.
Plan Your Homeschool Year with Flexibility
Before you jump into printing off your free PDF, there is one other point I want to make about revising your homeschool plans.
Revising your homeschool plans 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 homeschool 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!
