On Sundays I write out our weekly lesson plans on individual lesson plan pages.
Last year it would take me well over an hour or so to get it all together, searching through each subject and searching for additional activities.
Today I planned both kids' lessons for the two days in minutes! Why? Because I have spent a good part of the summer planning each subject, writing out a general schedule, and putting all required worksheets and instructions (with books lists, dvd lists, activities, etc.) in individual subject binders.
So all I did today is grab each binder as I got to that subject, flipped it open, wrote down on the planner what I had pre-planned for that day, and put it away.
Oh, I am so glad I am prepared this year! I don't know what I would do if I had to prepare from scratch.
It's going to be a great one!
A good plan is like a road map: it shows the final destination and usually the best way to get there.~ H. Stanley Judd
