Top 10 Ideas Checklist for Using A Homeschool Teacher Planner for Peak Productivity
Daily and weekly planning for your homeschool in your homeschool teacher planner are just as important as any other work. It helps you set the framework and works as a step-by-step guide for all the activities and lessons you must include in your child’s homeschooling.
Over the weekends, you can invest some time planning your children’s lessons and activities for the coming week. It will help you set goals, manage your time effectively, and spread your work evenly over the next 5 days of the week.
Top 10 Ideas Checklist for Using A Homeschool Teacher’s Weekly Planner for Peak Productivity
So, let me try and encourage you to use a weekly planner through my Top 10 Ideas Checklist for Using A Homeschool Teacher’s Weekly Planner for Peak Productivity.
1. You can either purchase weekly planners available in the stationery shops or bookstores or create them for yourself. Just make sure that each day’s page or space is large enough to create a to-do-list and add some pointers.
2. Color code your weekly planner using highlighters, colored markers, or pens. For example, the things stated in red are top priority and should be done straight away.
3. On top of the page, clearly mention your day’s goal in bold.
4. For each planned lesson and activity for the day, in brackets, mention the time duration.
5. If you were unable to finish an activity or lesson that day, encircle it so that you can carry on with it the next day or next week.
6. Use the initials of your children’s names to mark who should be taught that lesson.
7. You can use colored post-it notes to include your research and main points for each lesson or activity. For example, if you want to discuss the construction of the Pyramids of Giza while teaching your children the Fibonacci sequence, then write it on a post-it and paste it on the page.
8. You don’t have to use all the slots on your weekly or daily planner. You can leave a few slots empty for well-deserved breaks and continue the leftover work from yesterday.
9. Please remember that your homeschool teacher’s weekly planner is not your ordinary weekly planner and should not include your grocery shopping list or your doctor’s appointments.
10. At the end of the page, save some space for marking yourself. I call it the ‘grading the teacher’ section, where you mark yourself for staying true to your day’s commitments. For example, if you were able to complete 6 out of 8 activities or lessons, you could grade yourself 6/8 or B+.
I hope you can use my Top 10 Ideas to help you plan in your teacher planner with great success!
