Once you have a broad outline of the skills and sub-skills that you are going to teach, you can then move to thematic units. If you are aiming for a cross-curricular approach in your home classroom then a summary of themes should be added to your annual and quarterly planner. These themes will obviously cross over all of your subject year plans. If you are beginning with a broad theme such as the environment, then your resources for all subjects would be based on environment issues. Quite simply then, your English comprehensions and written work would be related to an aspect or aspects of the environment. In the mathematics class, your examples would be based on the environment, and so on.
Once you have a broad outline for the year, you would add sub-skills which should be covered each semester. You could in the language arts divide the various punctuation marks and their rules up over four semesters. Your language sub skills such as sentence types would have to be covered with the introduction of a statement requiring a period; a question which must take a question mark and so on. You could progressively add to your planning so that by the last semester you will move to the rules for direct and indirect speech, once all the necessary punctuation marks have been covered.
Step two of drawing up a lesson plan would be for the teacher to decide what resources will be needed for the lesson. The home school teacher might make use of a simple storybook to start. Thereafter, a series of worksheets for discussion might follow. Finally, the lesson might conclude with an assessment task, to ascertain how well the student has understood the work covered.
