Finding Appropriate Homeschool Lesson Plans

Just like regular teachers, parents who home school their children have to prepare homeschool lesson plans. They need to have lessons ready in all subjects and if they have several children doing different grades, they may have a hard time being able to find the time to prepare all the different lessons for the next day. There are ways of getting around this that will make the job much easier.

?

All lesson plans have the same format. You must have an objective for your lesson, which is what you expect the children to know or be able to do at the end of the lesson. You should know what materials you are going to need to teach the lesson and have them ready. Prepare the format of the lesson so that you know how you are going to get the concept across to the students and then prepare the necessary worksheets or activities through which they will demonstrate that learning has taken place.

?

If you are using the same prescribed curriculum as the regular school, there are lesson plans provided in the teacher's manuals for these textbooks. All publishers of textbooks do have teacher editions that you can purchase. Then you have the worksheets that accompany the lessons, but you will need to have access to a photocopying machine so that you don't have to tear them out of the book.

?

Prior to the start of the school year, look through the curriculum outcomes for the subjects. If you have two or more children whom you will be homeschooling, it is important to know that in subjects such as science and math there is a spiral curriculum. This means that the children will be learning the same concepts in each grade, just in different degrees. You can choose to teach the children about the concept with different expectations for different ages and grade levels. This is quite easy to do in language Arts, where older children can accomplish different objectives by reading children's books and all children benefit from being read to, no matter what the level of reading in the book. Then all you have to do to prepare your lesson plans is to develop the concept in such a way that it meets the outcomes for the grade level and prepare different worksheets or exercises for the children based on their levels of ability.

?

The regular school system or education department of the government also provides parents with materials for homeschooling. Contact either the school in your area or the government to find lesson plans that you can use. Quite often the teachers are willing to share their lesson plans with you so that you can feel confident your children are receiving the same education they would receive in the school system. With the rise in the popularity of home schooling, there are many online forums where you can get help from other parents who have more experience than you do or can answer some of your questions.

?

The Internet is also an excellent resource for worksheets and lesson plans for homsechooling. If you do a search for "lesson plans for homeschooling", for example, you will find there aer many sites where youc an get printable worksheets to use.
