I finally got my act together and made a lesson planning sheet for our preschool at home this year! And then I was on a roll, so I made another planning sheet for those of you with older children. These templates aren’t only with use of the Charlotte Mason philosophy- I think they’re pretty flexible!
Preschool Lesson Plan Template
I wanted to keep this one simple, since our year will be simple (read more about our curriculum here). But I’ve learned that just leaving a big box for all of my plans doesn’t work for me. I’m forgetful. A box-style lesson form made me leave out entire sections of the lesson, like introducing vocabulary. This template lets me detail each section of our lesson, but I can just write a few words in each section.
This form covers two days, so if you are planning more than two days a week, just use a couple of them. It has room for four lessons a day written vertically.
Elementary Lesson Plan Template
I just learned recently that some people don’t like to write things like this vertically. Who knew!? This lesson planning form has lessons recorded horizontally. I made it with elementary-aged children in mind, but you can use it for preschool as well. It covers eight lessons- either eight lessons in a day, or eight lessons in a subject (you would just have to switch the subject and date sections- if you want it official instead of crossed out, just shoot me an email!) Any other work you want your child to do, like a notebook entry, can go in the final box.
If you end up using these, I’d love to hear about it!
