How much time should he spend on a lesson?
What materials do I really need?
How long is the entire lesson?
You've spent hours deciding on your curriculum and maybe even purchased your materials (or ordered it). Now, it's time to start thinking about what your actual lesson will look like. Often I get questions about planning lessons with one student or even homeschooling several at a time.
With so many families homeschooling this year, I thought I would take a few minutes to share my favorite tips. I've been helping educators plan for over 15 years and have learned a lot along the way. Homeschooling my own children has just given me more insight into how to make the most use of my time.
I've decided one of the best ways to think about planning is to put everything on one page. I look through the content for the week and make a plan. This has helped me to look at activities for all 3 levels of my learners in one snapshot. No more shuffling through 3 books determining what we will be doing each day.
I would love for you to take a look at this editable lesson plan. It's in a Word document so that you can make it just right for you! I hope you find it helpful! Click on the link below to download.
