Weekly Homeschool Planner Review & Giveaway

Weekly Homeschool Planner

Today I have the pleasure of sharing a planner with you created by one of my BFF blogging friends, Jolanthe from Homeschool Creations! I love that we’ve become friends through our blogs and I know that whatever she creates has been done with deep consideration for her readers so I knew this would be terrific!

So what am I babbling on about here? It’s her Weekly Homeschool Planner. It comes in a fully editable PDF format so you can change, add, and delete whatever you want right on the PDF. The planner is set up with no dates, just Monday – Friday. Since it’s almost 100% customizable you can use it for future years as well. (As opposed to other planners where you have to purchase a new one each year.)

Click here to try out the editing for yourself.

(Hint: Click in any of the blue boxes and just start typing!)

Download a sample of the planner here!

What’s inside?

  • 138 planning pages ~ 8 1/2″ x 11″ sized
  • 12 blank month-at-a-glance pages
  • 40 weeks of weekly planning and journal sheets: each page can be customized to the subjects that your family studies and can be saved to your computer!
  • Preschool planning sheets
  • Field trip/Event plan sheets
  • Yearly curriculum planning sheets
  • Yearly planning and evaluation sheets
  • Yearly attendance tracking sheets
  • Field trip/Event plan sheets
  • Daily to-do lists
  • Main dish menu planner
  • Customizable chore charts
  • Important contacts info
  • Additional note space
  • Standardized testing and yearly assessment result tracking
  • Homeschooling requirement planning

Weekly Homeschool Planner

Pros about this planner:

  • Price! For just $20 you get a fully editable, re-usable planner!
  • You can type in your plans then print them…or not, its up to you.
  • They can be easily edited to fit your schedule, needs etc.
  • The planner can be used from year to year, so that’s a huge bonus!
  • Comes with a note section for any additional information you might need each week.

Cons about this planner:

  • Um, hmm…I kind of had to think about this one…maybe I could use a little bit bigger boxes for each day to fit all the info for my 4 kids in one box. But this can be adjusted by doing one calendar per child too, so it’s not critical.
  • The planner includes 8 boxes of subjects per day, since I have 10 workboxes, I could use 2 more spaces for subjects, but that’s no biggy, I can double up in a box if I need to.

So…I have good news! You all know that I love to share my good deals with you and since I’m ‘tight’ with Jolanthe…and also ‘cuz she’s just super cool…she’s offered a FREE copy to one of my readers!

  127. I love that can be used for several years and is fully editable!! I want it!!! :)

  128. I like the chore chart. That is an area that we really need help with in our house. The kids are just getting old enough to have daily chores but we are just not organized with it. This form will really help.

  129. I subscribe to Homeschool Creations through Google Reader.

  130. I checked out the sample and LOVE the layout. This is pretty much exactly what I've been envisioning for a planner and I love that I can change it up in PDF. And the thing I liked the most (this is silly I know) was the attendance chart.

  131. I subscribe to Confessions of a Homeschooler.

  132. I subscribe to Homeschool Creations via e-mail now.samarielafountain @ gmail . com

  133. I love that this incorporates daily and household tasks….making school part of daily life and daily life part of school!

  134. Nice Planner. I like that it's PDF and you can print what you want. Too many book planners have a lot of pages of things I don't need and not enough of ones I do.

  135. I also subscribed to Confessions of a Homeschooler.

  136. I'm planning to home school both of my daughters and this format was great! I loved the weekly plan and journal notes section (plus a bonus was her example of how she used it). I also liked the chore list.

  137. I love that it includes everything! I already subscribe to your blog and have subscribed to Homeschool Creations! :)

  138. Fabulous planner! :-)

  139. I've been drooling over this planner for a couple of weeks! I'd love to get my hands on those preschool planning pages.lagniappeacademy (at) gmail (dot) com

  140. This planner would be perfect for us -I am a binder type of person and this could fit right into my mommy binder and have everything all in one place. Also I love that it is computer editable as I am always changing things no more messy crossed out activities with this I can just redo it with our final activities at the end of the week and have an accurate record!

  141. I love it all, but the attendance form is pretty cool!thelacy4 at windstream dot net
