Discussion 3.2: Writing effective weekly schedules ...
How do you write a lesson plan for young children? Outline your thought process and approach.

First, I consider the age group I am targeting. If I am targeting toddlers, for example, I will remember developmental milestones these toddlers will be reaching or working toward. Then, with these in mind, I make a list of developmentally appropriate activities that will allow the children to develop in a sequential and supporting way. I then create a theme, either by skill or other stimulus, such as the seasons, and write a lesson plan using that one skill or theme in a variety of ways to engage the toddlers in a quality learning experience. Then I teach/facilitate the learning using this lesson plan!

The age group is important to writing your plan, for two year old, i'd make a list of appropriate activities, create a theme, gather books, cutouts.

First, consider age group and age appropriateness.
If i was working with 4 and 5 year olds, I would come up with a theme that i would consider all diversities and culturally appropriate subjects. I would present the theme to the class, we would have discussions about the class during scheduled morning circle time. I would provide materials to expand on the topics in many different ways. Science, math, literacy, art, manipulatives, sensory plays.
I would continue to keep the same schedule everyday for circle time, class exploration time, outside time, gross motor activities, etc.

Writing a lesson plan for young children requires observation of their skills and abilities, as well as what milestones they need to achieve. After picking a theme for the week, I would then decide how to present the theme under a variety of activities, and projects, learning centers and sensory play.
