Free Student Lesson Planner

It’s that time of year again… when your nearing the end of the current school year and your thoughts are focused on the next school year to come in about 2 to 3 months. As you peruse your thought library of all you’ve kept note of. The good, the bad, and the ugly… moments of difficulty with certain aspects you plan on improving or continuing for the up coming school year. You need to catch a grasp somewhere… somewhere you can begin to start the planning all over again.

Well… I have it for you! Why not start with a free student lesson planner! Yes! I said it!

F-R-E-E!!!

Download your FREE 2019-2020 Lesson Planner below!

I have a 63 page planner for this up coming 2019-2020 school year. With holidays and some neatly organized category boxes, to help you plan your year out for your child. I have two styles one for a boy and another for a girl.

Use these as you please! But I will briefly explain how I use these throughout the school year for my four children. I plan to keep these as long as I can as this lesson planner has proved to help me get through the year organized.

With this planner my children know what to expect on a day to day basis. As long as I dedicate some time to plan the year out. It also makes it easier for me. So let’s get to it!

What you’ll need for this planner is:

  • 1″ or 2″ 3 ring binder with clear cover
  • 63 white pages of copy paper per lesson planner
  • Post-it Tabs (about 10 for each month)
  • 53 Sheet Protectors, Reinforced 3 Hole, per lesson planner (this depends on how many weeks in your school year you have, adjust accordingly)
  • 3 hole puncher
This is Jacobs planner… he’s got his pencil pouch, index and spelling lists in the side pockets.
Bear with me this photo is of the 2018-2019 school year but the PDF is for the 2019-2020 school year

So, I’ve utilized the 1″ binder as you can see above. I will warn you, I use this size due to me using and planning out half the year at a time. But if you plan to plan out the entire year all at once I’d recommend using a 2″ binder or larger.

Jacob likes to cross out days passed, that’s his preference… after all it is his planner.

Above you can see the month sheet. At the bottom I have two boxes that show birthdays and goals. These are optional, but are there to help if you’d like to teach your child/children how to set goals and keep track of birthdays. It’s a great habit to acquire.

Notice the Post-it Tabs on the side labeling the months, this is how I use the Post-it Tabs. Again, I always say it’s optional. Only because not everything is of necessity and not everyone can afford some of the small things on top of what already has to be purchased throughout the school year. Moving on…. Below I’ll give you step by step instructions on how to get this planner up and ready to use.

Step 1

Print Lesson Planner and with a three hole puncher, punch holes in all pages. And then insert paper in your three ring binder.

Step 2

Insert one sheet protector after each week of school with activities and work.

Step 3

Attach the post it labels to each month for easy access to each month. I stuck it to the first sheet protector following the month sheet.

Step 4

And if you want you can add other things such as a print out of measurement conversions, multiplication chart, a pencil pouch, and so on.

That’s it! It’s simple.

Now… to how I use this lesson planner. Is simple as well. I will show you in the following pictures how I use this planner.

The top box with the weeks dates are for a weekly over view. Insert special dates such as holidays, field trips, special activities, birthdays, and so on.
For the subject and assignment areas, I write in the assignments individually, and abbreviate as much as I can. Cross out days that have nothing and so on. Use as you see fit, make it work for you and your child.
For the Habits box I use a stamp once I’ve verified chores or reading is completed. I found the stamp and ink pad at the Dollar Tree. Score!
Lastly, for the sheet protectors, I insert the weeks assignments that I make copies of. I make copies of school work because its less expensive for me to buy paper and toner than it is every year to purchase new consumables for all four children.

And that’s it! I hope that was simple enough not to be scary to attempt. If you take the time to plan this out I promise this will help tremendously. Many Blessing!
