Large Family Homeschool Lesson Planning

Lesson planning for a larger than average size family can be a bit tricky.  I mean, I could make up a separate planning page for each child, but that is a bit much for me.  I like to be able to at one glance see what will need done for the week.  I have found a serious lacking of planners for 3+ students (free and fee).  So, today I learned how to insert a table on a word doc. and made my own.  We do some subjects together and some not.  I even have a place to jot down ideas to keep the little ones busy.  Hopefully come August this will do the trick for us.  I only plan out a week or 2 at a time because I have learned that is I plan more than that ahead, when life happens (and it will), the whole thing needs reworked.

  1. It is nearly impossible to find the RIGHT planner. I did have luck last year with a DayTimer Family planner, but this years version is TOO SMALL!
    Maybe i'll sit down with my computer and try to make a version of this. For now I'll pin it!

  2. Thanks for commenting. Sometimes the only way to get a planner that fits your life, schooling style, AND family size is to DIY. I used Microsoft Word and inserted tables into the document. Good luck!

  4. Thanks for this. I've been looking for something to plan all three kids. Why isn't more out there for homeschoolers that do this?!
