avazquez24 Posted July 10, 2012 Share Posted July 10, 2012 We'll be starting our second year homeschooling,and this year I'll have dd in 1st and ds in kinder. I'm just wondering if most people 'lesson plan' in these early grades? or does it depend on subject? I used to teach first grade, and I'm a major planner. However, our last year didn't go as I would have liked, so I'm trying to make it less stressful, more enjoyable, and keep focus on WHY I'm homeschooling. Also, I find it kind of hard to really plan out ahead? I mean, obviously I'll have a plan as far as trying to get through a certain amt of lessons in a certain amt of time generally speaking. But, with that said, a LOT will depend on dd/ds and that particular lesson. Maybe they will need to spend an extra day on a lesson due to reinforement, or vice versa and they will speed through a lesson faster. So, I planned on a general time frame to try and do as far as lessons goes, but was basically going to move on to the next step/lesson when dd or ds was ready. As far as science and history goes, was going to just see how far we get with it and move at a nice pace that works for us. Below is what we'll be using: Math u See (dd and ds) All About Reading and All About Spelling (dd and ds) Story of the World (dd and ds) Writing with Ease (DD only) First Language Lessons (DD only) A Reason for Handwriting (dd and ds) Read Alouds (currently Magic Tree House series) Science-Magic School Bus DVDs and textbook have here Art- I just have different Ed Emberly books we were going to use for now. I was too scared to over whelm myself this year. So, given the materials we'll be using (it'll be our first year using ALL of these, as last year we used one boxed curriculum), would most people type up and write out actual lesson plans? If so, what would they possibly look like? Thanks so much!:) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
