My First Failed Homeschool Plan

When I first started planning our homeschool, I wrote a beautiful lesson plan with everything that we were going to do.

Then life happened. Living happened.

I had a 5 and 3 year old at the time. My 3-year old wasn’t interested in my well-intentioned plan. And I felt like I didn’t get to my 5-year old’s learning the way I had planned. The satisfying idea of checking off what we were going to do dwindled to a halt. I felt like a homeschool planning failure.

I wondered, “How do you plan your homeschool when you can’t get done what’s on the lesson plan?”

I like visualizing how everything will look when it comes to homeschool curriculum. There are many things to consider in homeschool planning, such as outings, extra-curriculur activities, holidays, etc. I don’t like not having a plan – it makes me feel ill-equipped and stressed.

I HAD to come up with a different method of planning where I could lay out a plan but not have it written down as something to follow.

And so my method of a simple and restful homeschool plan was born.

FREE Homeschool Planning Using Google Sheets

This method of homeschool planning I’ve now used for several years. It’s helped me to relax about homeschool, know that I have a plan in place that’s not a law-abiding lesson plan, while also seeing that my kids are learning and moving foward.

What I do is use Google Sheets to plan our homeschool for the year. I then use a simple weekly printable recording what we actually do.

This combination has worked so wonderfully for me, and I want to share it with you!
