I normally do our lesson plans 1-2 weeks at a time. It works for us, but sometimes I get busy and get off track.
I am kicking around the idea of attempting to lesson plan for four Weeks at a time. Just so it keeps me on track, and I think we will manage to get more fun stuff done. Not just the basics.
How often do you lesson plan?
Is it already laid out for you in pre made program, or do you make your own?
On the advice of another mom with an ASD/speech delayed kid, I'm laying out a year's worth of loose lesson plans now. I have a year-long speech therapy package to get through and a chart to map LO's progress anyway, so I just have to fill in blocks on the calendar. I know that we won't be able to adhere strictly, and learning opportunites or family needs will crop up that will need to take priority over my schedule, but I like planning and having a course to follow. I'm building in rest and catchup days, too. In fact, as soon as I got the rough draft done, DH sprang a vacation on me, so I will bump some things back and go from there.
I make my own lesson plans and I like to plan them for at least one week at a time. Even better if I could find a way to prepare them a month at a time...so I would say if you are willing and able to plan them out for a month, go for it! Makes sense to me:)
