We’re still in the middle of homeschool planning here and, while I’m a fan of paper planners, I decided to try out the new online homeschool lesson plans program Lessontrek. I’m so glad I did! This program is going to make lesson planning SO much easier this year! Here’s a look at how the Lessontrek program works and why it’s such a good fit for our family.

One of the first things I noticed about Lessontrek (and loved) is that I can schedule lessons for multiple children and view them all easily. The program allows you to set up the school year for each child individually and then choose which subjects each child will study.
For example, when I was setting up Math for Pooh, I could assign it a specific color (so I can easily tell it apart from other subjects on the lesson plan) and I could decide how many hours he’d complete that year and whether to grade his assignments.
I can even create my own assignments for each subject and schedule them. Then, after the assignment is completed, I can mark it done and enter the grade. So the program schedules lessons and keeps grades too! I can already see that end-of-year grading is going to be a breeze this year. 🙂
Now here’s where the program truly won me over. You know how you end up doing the same type of assignment with your kids repeatedly during the year? With Lessontrek, I can schedule the assignment once…
…and then copy and paste it into the rest of the homeschool lesson plans for the week! I literally squealed with delight when I saw that feature. All I had to do was edit the lesson plan template to show the exact pages I wanted Pooh to complete each day. Super simple.
And the completed lesson plans are so pretty to look at! I can move subjects around as needed or delete them if I need to make serious adjustments after a few weeks. Lessontrek also allows me to move ahead and schedule as far out as I choose during the year, so I can get a jump on lessons for later in the term.

Pretty darn awesome! With a list and a schedule, many of us could conquer the world. This homeschool tool seems like a must-have application if you are homeschooling your children. PAssing this on to a few of my friends who do this, thx!
I’m excited about this! I have been looking for some way to organize our lessons. Checking into the sale now! Thanks.

This is great. I think both homeschool and classroom teachers could benefit from this. Good share!
This looks very helpful and anything that helps to streamline the lesson planning process is always a benefit in opinion 🙂

The blog looks awesome! You went right to work on your to-do list! 🙂 I just tried this program myself and really loved it. Great review!

Have you figured out how to copy lessons from one kid to another? For example, I am teaching forth grade this year and each student is using the same materials. I set everything up under one child, but cannot figure out how to copy the weeks over to the other. Their support team hasn’t gotten back to me yet, and it has been a month. 🙁

Hmmm…I can’t do that either. I have kids in different grades, though, so it’s not as much of an issue. I hope you can get it resolved! I can’t imagine trying to input the exact same lesson plans for multiple children. That sounds like the least fun afternoon ever. 🙁
