After much struggle brainstorming to figure out how to get a whole week’s worth of lesson plans onto a single page Workbox-style, I stumbled onto a format that is easy on the eyes and super simple to use. Praise be to God for the inspiration!
This is a Legal-sized plan book, and although it’s a little bigger than I’m used to, I love the visual peace on the page.
- PDF file to print
- Legal size printing paper
- Binding (either supplies or a service)
- Cover material (either construction paper (cut and assembled) or Legal size cover stock)
The PDF for the file is right there in the Box.net widget in the right side scroll bar; feel free to use it to your heart’s content and share it with your friends if you find it helpful.
This plan book is blessedly simple. Here’s a look:
I grouped the 12 boxes into three groups of four, which reflects how we break up our our school day; we’ll work through these from top left to bottom right, just like reading. There is plenty of room for family duties and fun. The Notes box is to record problems & tweaks to help for the next week. I have a global plan for the year, but plan in five 9-week quarters (we’re year ’rounders). You can click the images for a better look, just hit the back button to return to the post.
Blessings to you in your planning days!
ps–apologies for the dark pictures; hard disk error and not all of my software’s been re-installed. Soon, hopefully. : )
