As much as I want it to stay summer forever, the back to school season is in full force over here y’all. I’m currently knee deep in lesson planning for all three of my children for the coming school year and I have had to write so much. I’m a planner and a list maker, so naturally I work better when I write things down and go back to it later. But trying to plan out an ENTIRE SCHOOL YEAR for three kids is no joke. To help in my planning, I made a Homeschool Lesson Planning Sheet for my little OCD brain. Seeing our entire school year written out, all organized and pretty gives this homeschooling mama so much joy and less anxiety.
My family thrives on routine, so we homeschool just like we would if my children were in a public or private school. We all have a pretty strict schedule that we have to adhere to because that helps keep us all sane and calm, most of the time. Having the entire school year written down on Homeschool Lesson Planning Sheets before the year even starts lets us see the finish line clearly. It gives us a goal to shoot towards and allows my children to work ahead if they want.
By planning the entire year out, it actually saves me time in the long run. The first year I homeschooled my children I planned week to week. It’s definitely much easier now that I’m using the Homeschool Lesson Planning Sheet to plan their lessons.

How I Use a Homeschool Lesson Planning Sheet
Because I’m planning for three kids, I plan one child at a time. I’m in my third year and I’ve found that planning one child at a time is easiest for me. It keeps me focused on one grade level. When I was going back and forth between grades and subjects, I felt incredibly overwhelmed and at times … crazy!
I’ve also found that using a quality pen helps considerably as well. When you’re writing 36 weeks of lesson plans for three kids, a comfortable grip and a pen that writes smoothly is a huge help. I feel like I’m a bit of an overachiever, or at least I try to be, when it comes to homeschooling my kids and the G2 Pen helps me to do that. I also think that using lots of fun colors helps a bit, too.
If you want to experience a comfortable, smooth writing experience with the #1 selling gel ink brand with four point sizes and 20 vibrant colors, hover over the photo to shop Pilot G2 Pens.
Someone mentions colored pens and I get all excited. But seriously, if you want to know the way to my heart, one is through pens. Just ask my accountant.

That’s a great sheet. If you’re going to home school, you’re going to need to be organized – for both yourselves and the kids.
A friend of mine home schools so this wold work great for her! She is always trying to become very very organized and I think this printable could help
This is great. I know a couple of homeschooling parents that I will be passing this on to.
Liz Mays says
This will be great for organizing and staying on task! It will be nice to have plenty of those pens to work with throughout the year!
This is such a great resource. I know that homeschool planning can get overwhelming without the right tools on hand.
This is a great sheet, and I would totally use this for when my kiddies go back to school. Even though I don’t home school, it would be perfect to use as a do-to list and after school activities.
Claudia Krusch says
This is a great way to keep track of home school schedule. I need to pick up some of these pens. They come in so many great colors.
This isn’t a great resource. If I were still homeschooling, a sheet like this would be really helpful.
Amy Desrosiers says
We do not homeschool but I can see how helpful being on task is. I love colored pens and need to keep my eyes peeled for these.
Chavonne Harvey says
I love the assorted colors, it makes writing fun for me and the kids. Thanks for the coupon, I love to save.
I love your pens! I am such a stationary, office supply, pen junkie!
Oh, I love good pens! I’m going to have to try these. Loving all of the colors!

I’m just like you. I’m also a planner and a list maker! PS – Thank you so much for the heads up on the FriXion Pens coupon!

Thanks for sharing your idea in making this! I can make my own planner with this guide.
I’ve never tried homeschooling my kids and I admire parents who do! This sheet is definitely helpful and it will allow parents to prepare the lesson plans without hassle.
This is really helpful! I have a few friends homeschooling! I am sure they will love these!

I have always liked colored pens. This is a great resource, it could easily be repurposed for students who go to traditional schools too.

My close friend will be starting her homeschool journey in just a few weeks and is looking for all of the helpful resources she can get. I will be sharing this planning printable with her, as well as putting those Pilot pens on our own back to school shopping list.
Myrah Duque says
What a great and useful sheet. These pens are so colorful, I always wanted to homeschool my daughter, but was unable to. I admire those that do.
Annemarie LeBlanc says
This lesson plan sheet is going to help a lot of parents who homeschool their kids. It would also be great for the kids to see what future lessons are in store for them. It could even motivate them to do advanced reading on their own. Oh, BTW, those pens are really nice. Love the colors too.
Amy Desrosiers says
This is so helpful to stay on track. I need to share this with my friends who homeschool.
Our Family World says
My friend homeschools her children. I am sending your link over so she can download and print this lesson planning sheets. It will be a great help in keeping her and her kids organized. Oh, I love those pens too!
