Our kindergarten homeschool plan changes a lot, but only because I believe in teaching for the kids, not for test scores. Our plan for March is similar to other months of homeschooling, but I’ve added a few things that I think you will love to check out 🙂
Looking for a kindergarten homeschool plan? Ours is a relaxed approach with different learning styles mixed in – Let’s check it out!

Hey, y’all, and Happy March! I had a couple of people ask us what our plan is for March, so let’s dive into it!
In our Etsy shop, I have a March printable lesson plan that gives you ideas and activities for every single day in March. This is a great resource as we’re heading into spring! It will give you a chance to slow down and create a more low-key Kindergarten homeschool plan for your homeschool.
Our March Homeschool Plan
Our kindergartener’s homeschool plan pretty much stays the same all year, but it is very relaxed. We are not strict on times for things that we’re doing or when school should start and stop.
As far as planning goes, I do not pre-plan anything, but I do have an outline of what we’re learning that week / month. The planner I use is the Well Planned Day homeschool planner.
I love it because it’s a book inside of a planner – full of tips and ideas to help you make your homeschool everything you want it to be. Plus she has spaces for other homeschool things like field trips, activities, reading lists, etc.

I like to back-plan this planner – Instead of writing everything down and then hoping we get to it, only to have to erase what we didn’t get to and have to re-write it down next week… I will wait until the end of the day / week and I will write down all the things we finished.
This takes the stress of planning off of me, but also helps me keep a record of the things we’re doing in our homeschool each day and keeps me accountable.
One of the things we do every day is our morning menu.
This doesn’t get done every morning, but it’s done throughout the day as we sit down to learn. If you want to see the inside of our morning menu, scroll up and watch the video. But basically, we put some independent work inside of it, as well as visual aids for different things we’re learning. Plus, we love the ability to use wet or dry erase markers to complete worksheets inside the menu! Super handy!
We decided back in November that I would add in some classical learning elements. We love the memory work, accountability, and the way Classical Conversations pushes the kids to learn so much. But we did not love the community element and didn’t want it to be the main curriculum for our family.
So, we are doing CC at home, without a community, and contrary to popular belief, that can totally be done! There are Facebook Groups (linked above!) and tons of resources on YouTube to help you do CC at home.
We purchased the Fifth Edition “Foundations” program from Classical Conversations. I’m not trying to get everything for the week memorized in one week. But we DO go over each subject every day – and when we’ve mastered a subject, we will move just that portion over to the next week’s memory work.
Considering how long our kindergartener will actually sit to go through everything, we will move on to additional work or educational games / shows.
We are using the Gather Round Homeschool Ready to Read packet for additional reading work. I am NOT doing the unit study that comes with the packet. Instead, I am pulling the student worksheets from the packet and doing those.
We like to do unit studies as a family. I do not want to introduce a ton of different topics just because it’s “part of the curriculum” — That’s the beauty of your homeschool, your choice 🙂
Speaking of unit studies, I created a Human Body Unit Study that we will complete this month! It’s available in our Etsy shop – and you will get the expansion pack for FREE when you purchase!
