HOME EDUCATOR'S LESSON PLANNER
INFORMATION

Comprehensive and flexible system for planning lessons and recording achievement for one student (or family) in one place. Choose the parts that you need and ignore the rest, or use the whole thing! The Components of a Complete System section below lists all the elements of the Home Educator's Lesson Planner/Student Record together with explanatory comments and samples.

There is one each of all the components in every reproducible version. (An enclosed "Read Me First" file tells you how many copies to prepare.)

There are enough copies of all the pages in the Complete System on Paper versions to last one student for one average year (10 unit dividers and 200 daily logs). Where "list" and "no-list" versions are described below, we have included whichever is appropriate to the version you purchase. Where "optional" is indicated below, we have included only one copy as it is an item that you may or may not wish to use and permission is given to make as many copies as you need.

The Versions section further down explains all the different formats in which this Lesson Planner is available. Most of them can be customized at your request for an additional fee, as explained in Extras in the bottom section.

      • Please order customization service at the same time you purchase the product.
      • If you require several Home Educator's Lesson Planner/Student Record systems to be customized (because you want each of your children to have a different subject list), you must purchase that number of customizations.
      • Return policy on the customization service is limited to replacing incorrect files with correct files in the event I have made an error. Please be very careful when you prepare the list of subjects that you want me to use and keep a copy for your own records. You will need it to prove any error on my part. I am a meticulous proof-reader so you should not need to request exchange!
