Review - Class Lesson Planner

The following is a homeschool review of "CLASS Lesson Planner," published by Christian Liberty Press:

This 111 page book is an excellent addition to any homeschool curriculum.  Here is what you will find inside:

1. Ideas for organizing your school year

  One method is to take each school book and divide the number of workbook pages into the number of school days in the year.  This will help you see how many pages to do on each school day, in order to complete the curriculum on time.

2. There are a few pages of blank calendars for each month of the year.
  This includes suggestions on how to fill these in.

3.  The Main portion of the book contains the "Weekly Lesson Plan Forms." 

  This is my favorite part of the book and what I use most!   Here is where you, as the teacher, write down your daily and weekly work that you expect your student to do.  For example:

In the category of "Math" - do page 14 in workbook.

 I also write a few notes about what the student learned, or any special accomplishments from the lesson. I will write notes in the margin about what we need to work on for improvement, if needed.

The weekly Lesson planner section has two pages for each week, covering all possible subjects. The forms are blank for you to fill in the dates.  You can start this at any time, take a vacation, and start back up again by just filling in the dates.  There is a space for each of the following subjects:

Bible; Reading; Spelling and Handwriting; Grammar and Phonics; History; Science; Math: and "Other."

I like to write down what we did, as a sort of brief journal. It is also great to look back over and see, in writing, all that you have accomplished with your student!

4. In the back of the book, there is a worksheet where you can write out the names of all the curriculum you are using (category suggestions are given) as well as spaces for the year, and the name of your student.

5. There are pages to list the assignments given, as well as worksheets to list all the books your student has read independently.

6. You'll find an attendance record, report card, evaluation reports, transcript worksheets, and so much more.  There is even a worksheet for a weekly chore list, which is so helpful for homeschoolers!

You can find this book at the Christian Liberty Press site:
