I think planning depends on you more than the kids. If you are a "type A" and like to know what is going on each day, than planning ahead is great. If you can't stand planning things out and function better just "running with it" then just run with it. As a school teacher I am required to turn in lesson plans a week in advance, and while having the plans roughly sketched out works well for me, I rarely stick directly to them. I usually find something that works better or a different idea I like better for teaching the concept. As a homeschooling parent, my plan as of now is to do a rough sketch for the week, then just roll with it day by day. I will probably write down what we do after the fact for my records and that is what I would turn in if ever asked to show lesson plans.
