Something I have been spending a lot of time on lately is planning next yearâ€™s homeschooling.Â One thing I have learned over the years is that the more organized I am the more smoothly our homeschool days go!Â I have a great planning resource from Schoolhouse Planners to tell you about, the Schoolhouse Planners series.Â As a member of the Schoolhouse Review Crew I have been given membership to SchoolhouseTeachers.com, which includes access to the Schoolhouse Planners.Â I used them last year and found them to be very helpful keeping our homeschooling on track.
This is series of 5 different planners, starting with the â€œBig Mamaâ€ Planner.Â This is the one I used the most last year, and is designed for a parent to plan out an entire year.Â I really like that it is interactive, so I am able to customize it for my own use. For example I added appointments and year long classes before I printed out the planning calendar.Â This makes my calendar so much neater and easy to use.Â Of course you donâ€™t have to print it out, and since it is 800 pages I doubt youâ€™d want to print the entire thing!
In addition to the interactive calendar it also includes interactive planning pages, field trip logs and an important one for me this year – transcripts.Â My middle daughter is in 12th grade this year, and I am going to use the the transcript forms to make a transcript for her.Â There are helpful things for all ages of students, including helpful articles from homeschool experts, and must-have lists like U.S. Presidents, spelling rules and Periodic Table.Â There are also household forms like grocery lists and meal planning forms. It is useful to have everything in one easy to find place.
In addition there are also four planners for students, designed for different needs.Â These planners include a Primary, Intermediate, High School and Special Needs planner.
These include articles written for the students, and information lists geared toward their level.Â These planners can be purchased here, and range in price from $39.00 for the â€œBig Mamaâ€ Planner to $9.95 for the Primary Planner.Â In addition the planners are FREE for SchoolhouseTeachers.com subscribers, which costs $3 for the first month, $12.95 per month thereafter.
