Homeschool Lesson Planner – Arrows

Are you a homeschooling dad or teacher looking for a more manly lesson planner? Or have you been searching for a great lesson planner for your son? Look no further!

Without further ado…

I present the Arrows Lesson Planner. I also tried to make this fairly customizable so you should be able to use it whether you homeschool or teach in a traditional classroom.

The first part of the planner you’ll find the weekly planning pages. I included 5 copies for each month so you should have enough for each month regardless of how many days there are and how they fall.

What forms are included?

The following pages are all of my helpful homeschooling forms. The form section includes the following items. If there’s a form I forgot, feel free to email me and I’ll do my best to add one in!


Most of these forms were created to go along with my Homeschooling 101: A Guide to Getting Started eBook. Hopefully they’re fairly self explanatory but you can use them however best suits your needs.

How do I use the planner?


To use, simply print the planner, then take it to a local office supply shop to have it spiral bound for ease of use. It cost me $3.50 for the spiral coil, clear plastic cover, and white back cover. You can even print an extra one for your students if they prefer to work off of their own planner!

If you like you can print the sheets front to back, or one sided depending on your preference.

Fill it in!

First add in the current week dates at the top along with all of your subjects down the left hand column.



Next add in your lessons on the lines provided. You can use the lines to write in lessons for each child as indicated below.



I like to use different colored pens for each of my children.



I like the Paper Mate InkJoy retractable pens, they’re colorful and fun. However, pen is permanent so if you like to move things around, you might consider erasable colored pencils or the Frixion Erasable Pens!


As you proceed through your lessons, highlight the completed items so you know that they are finished.

    It looks great. I was just thinking about a planner for next year when this popped up on Facebook. Thanks!

    For erasable color pens, I really like the Pilot Frixion ones. 🙂

    Hi! Thanks for making these available. I needed a planner for this coming year. Was wondering…can the subject names in the left columns be easily made into a fill-in, that populates all the following pages?
