If you just purchased an Apologia text and have no idea how to implement the study on a 36-week schedule, take a look at Lynn Ericson's Daily Lesson Plans for Exploring Creation with Astronomy. The lesson plans are concisely designed in 8 1/2 x 11 format, with front and back colored cardstock cover, and contain daily activities for each lesson or module.

Apologia author Jay Wile granted permission for Ericson to write the plans, using their lesson names and headings, and endorses them for parents who need extra guidance for their students.

"The Apologia lesson plans were written to aid my own children as we used these courses," Ericson explained. "Numerous days of not having necessary supplies, being unavailable to direct reading at the needed movement ... resulted in these guides," she continued.

Daily Lesson Plans for Exploring Creation with Astronomy follows Jeannie Fulbright's gentle text for elementary science. Ericson has taken Wile's advice to take two weeks on each lesson, dividing each lesson's reading, narration, journaling, and experiments into ten days, assuming that a student will study science on a daily basis. If a student is taking science three days a week due to classes or cooperatives, this plan will still work, because the lessons are numbered (as in Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, etc.), NOT by days of the week (such as Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, etc.).

The elementary lesson plans follow a shortened 21-week schedule, which leaves a lot of wiggle room for those on a 36-week schedule. Although they are included in the guide, parents who follow the Charlotte Mason method may want to add in extra days to separate narration topics and journaling from other activities.

If you follow Ericson's guide and have daily lessons, your student should complete Exploring Creation with Astronomy in 105 days. With this handy guide on hand, you should have no problem reminding your students to finish their daily science lessons, even if you are occupied with other activities or other children.
