I personally can't plan for the entire 36 weeks ahead of time. I only started with 4 weeks of pre-planning so far this year. I figure out what we're going to do each day, write it down in my teacher planner, then put any copies/worksheets we'll need that week in a folder (so I have 4 folders labeled "week 1", "week 2", etc.). My 7th grader & my preschooler each have 4 folders. I don't schedule my 4 yo's work at all like my 7th graders, I just like to have workbook pages handy that I can pull out of his folder each week.
I just start with one subject. Like, this yr I started with language arts. I went through our LA curriculum (Jump In, MegaWords), tried to guess how much we'd want to do in one day, made the necessary copies, & put them in the weekly folder. Then I moved on to history, went through it lesson by lesson & figured out how much we'd be able to do in the 1st 4 weeks. We're doing History Odyssey with a little SOTW thrown in, 3 days per week. I also did searches for corresponding movies online for history & science & wrote those in my planner, too.
I have no idea if I'm being helpful. I'd have to ask you all the same questions Shianne asked to get a better idea of what you're looking for. What do you mean by "programs"?
