    Editable Lesson Plan Templates

    What are these like? Is it just squares that you copy and paste text into? And what is the difference between the primary, upper, and grammar school?

    Listening! I have been wondering the same thing.

      Yes, they are simply blank lesson plans that you can type or copy-and-paste into. The difference between the three versions is what subject headers are included.

          Are you able to edit the subject headers?

              Could a completely blank one be made available?

                These templates are designed for use with our curriculum and its subjects, so we do not plan to offer a blank template for use with any curriculum.

                  Re: Editable Lesson Plan Templates

                  Jen, even though we are based in MP I've sometimes wanted to edit the subject headers AND the days -- we school 6 days/week, usually. I purchased Adobe DC so that I could make the changes I wanted; it was a bit spendy, at $25/month for a monthly subscription (less if you commit to a year plan) and now I've cancelled my subscription b/c I don't need it anymore. During our transition to MP I used this regularly for several months, and now that I am getting a better handle on our upcoming year I may re-subscribe for a month just to get next year looking the way I'd like. Having open-and-go lesson plans is great!

                  If all you want is edited subjects, then I imagine you could download the free trial version of AdobePro and make the style you wish before your trial expires.

                  Aside from squinching the pages around so I could get 2 3-day spreads each week (which meant I didn't have subject headings at all on those plans), I've also edited them to include "recitation/memory work" as a subject, to rebundle subjects into groups that make sense for us, and to set aside a subject for non-MP assignments: independent reads from other sources, IEW's poetry memorization, drawing, and keyboarding practice are some non-MP subjects we've scheduled.

                    Yes, we use Adobe's Creative Cloud suite daily for work so I can make up my own plan grids if needed, but I thought a blank plan would be good for those who don't have that option. I see what Michael is saying though.

                      I meant that you can use the MP plans and change the subjects, which isn't possible with the free version of Adobe. If you have the cloud suite you ought to be able to edit the subjects under the edit option. Then you have to go back to the standard view to edit the contents, if I recall correctly.

                      Anybody who needed a slightly modified, or blanked, or re-labeled version could probably accomplish that within the 7-day trial, which strikes me as very fair use of the trial. It convinced me to subscribe!

                      ETA: I can see that MP is not intending to provide a general-purpose planner. Above, I was trying to show the ways that even MP homeschool users might want to make more-substantial revisions along the lines of incorporating resources folks on the forum may use: supplemental reading, art, typing, and so on. Or relabeling subjects for a child who is straddling, say, grammar and logic levels.

                            I made my own templates using Word. I have the full version of Adobe Acrobat (you can buy it as a teacher for a discounted price), but I much prefer working in Word and converting to pdf if I want to share it. The lesson plans I posted for science can be downloaded and converted to a Word template, or just downloaded and used as a template by copying it or opening it and choosing "save as." I believe I saved one of the lesson plans as a template (leaving the boxes and text in it so I could just change the text). I can post that if anyone is interested.

                              I'm interested. :-)

                              Also, how many subjects do you cover per day for your oldest homeschool student, with only 4 days a week? Thanks.
