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.)
(Hint: Click in any of the blue boxes and just start typing!)
- 138 planning pages ~ 8 1/2″ x 11″ sized

- 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

- Yearly curriculum planning sheets
- Yearly planning and evaluation sheets

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!
