This page from the by Columns Lesson Planner set features lesson planners with five columns. Like the other planners in the by Column set, the files are available in both PDF and DOC.
I have a lot of five column planners at this web site, but I have added even more on this page. Quite possibly I added these 5-column lesson planners to coordinate with the other by Columns planners. Not only that, but a few of these 5-column planners offers a unique combination of the number of rows and ruled lines that my other lesson planners do not have. Like the other by Columns lesson planners, these may be mixed with the other by Columns lesson planners.
This 5 x 3 lesson planner has 15 boxes and a lined area.
This 5 x 3 lesson planner has 15 short boxes and a large lined area.
You could use the 5x6 lesson planner in the normal way or you could use it as a 6-week subject lesson planner into which you write lesson plans for one subject for a period of 6 weeks. Either way, this layout has 30 boxes and a lined area.
Another 5x6 lesson planner, this one has smaller boxes and a larger lined area.
A 5x9 lesson planner is the typical Quarter Planner layout, however; you are the BOSS of your homeschool and, if you choose to do so, you can use it for a 9-subject weekly planner.
Another 5x9 lesson planner, this one has smaller boxes and a larger lined area. This is ideal for those who write succinct lesson plans, and need some space for comments outside of the boxes.
This 5x12 layout would require succinct lesson plans. This layout also features a small lined area.
This is the classic Semester Lesson Planner because it is a 5x18 layout and because 18 weeks often, though not always, marks the end of the first semester. The boxes are small so one would have to schedule page numbers rather than even the shortest lesson plans. A lined area at the bottom is included on the page.
Note:Clicking on the doc links might load your word processor inside of your default browser, making editing more difficult. Read how to get around that on the By Columns home page, 4th paragraph.
Example of scheduling page numbers rather than even the shortest lesson plans: BJU Press United States History for Christian Schools 3rd Edition.
Adding Images to the DOC Files: On the bottom of the Homeschool Planners with One Column page, you can read a little about adding images to the word document files. I placed images into two of the files and linked them as example files.
A little math to help you choose lesson planner layouts.
The amount of pages is based on block to block planning of one subject. (No empty blocks between filled blocks).
Succinct Lesson Plans are illustrated in the image above. This was my lesson planning style and it is described in several places at my website and I have supplied forms to go with the method: Curriculum Key; Goals and Objectives.
