Plan Homeschool Lessons & Homeschool Lesson Plans

Use These 5 Tips to Plan Your Homeschool Lessons:

1. As you go about your day, think of topics that you and your children would like to learn more about.

2. Keep several small notebooks handy for jotting down learning ideas as they come to you throughout the day.

3. Briefly search book websites, such as Amazon.com, to find books to complement your topics of interest.  For History lessons, for instance, you'll find "The Civil War for Kids" or "The American Revolution for Kids."  For Science experiments, try "Science in Seconds for Kids" or "150 Captivating Chemistry Experiments."  Note the book titles on your "Library List" and take a field trip to your local library this week to pick up the books.

4. With your ideas and books in-hand, spend a comfy afternoon relaxing, sipping tea or hot chocolate, and jotting down homeschool lessons for the coming week.  Use each book's table of contents and the index for lesson plan ideas, including reading and writing activities, hands-on projects and art-related projects, plus math and reasoning exercises, all gleaned from the books you've selected.

5. Follow this format with every topic or idea that comes to mind, and you'll have plenty of homeschool lessons and activities for each month.

Or, Use the Homeschool Lesson Plans Already Created for You and Your Children:

1. Visit our website at www.EverythingHomeschooling.com.

2. Click your child's grade level and follow the "Weekly Homeschool Lessons" outlined for you.

3. If you'd prefer to follow the "Free Homeschool Lessons" and "Free Creative Writing Lessons," you may click on those, instead of the Weekly Lessons.

4. Print the "Weekly Planner Log" and "Reading Log" Sheets from our "Homeschool Forms" page, and fill them out with the "Weekly Lessons" and "Books to Read" Suggestions.

5. Do lots of fun Hands-On Activities and Experiments to complement the Weekly Lessons. Keep the Log Sheets, your child's completed projects, and photos of projects in your child's portfolio or homeschool binder or box.

Happy homeschooling!
