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.
