Hi everyone!

I’ve literally had a ton of emails…although I’m not sure how you would really weigh emails…

Maybe I should say a zillion, but then I’d be exaggerating slightly.

Anyway, the point is I’ve had a LOT of emails requesting that I make a printable homeschool lesson planner. So I’ve finally had a little bit of time to make one.


Okay fine, I couldn’t decide on a design so I made two!

I’m releasing the first one for you today and will release the second version next week.

Curious?…think floral.

I also did my best to make these fairly generic so you can use them if you homeschool or teach in a traditional classroom.

I wanted something bright and colorful just to help make my planning a little sweeter. So today I present the bright and cheery Homeschool Lesson Planner & Records download.

Psst…giveaway alert, keep reading!

The first part of the planner you’ll find the weekly planning pages. I included 5 copies for each month so you should have enough for each month regardless of how many days there are and how they fall.


What forms are included?

The following pages are all of my helpful homeschooling forms. The form section includes the following items. If there’s a form I forgot, feel free to email me and I’ll do my best to add one in!

Most of these forms were created to go along with my Homeschooling 101: A Guide to Getting Started eBook. Hopefully they’re fairly self explanatory but you can use them however best suits your needs.

How do I use the planner?

I printed the planner and forms, then took mine to a local office supply store and had it spiral bound. It cost about $3.50 for the spiral, plastic cover, and backing. You can even print an extra one for your students if they prefer to work off of their own planner.

Next get some colorful pens and start planning! Add in the current week dates at the top along with all of your subjects down the left hand column.



Next add in your  lessons on the lines provided. You can use the lines to write in lessons for each child as indicated below.



I like to use different colored pens for each of my children.


I like the Paper Mate InkJoy retractable pens, they’re colorful and fun. However, pen is permanent so if you like to move things around, you might consider erasble colored pencils.



As you proceed through your lessons, highlight the completed items so you know that they are finished.

  1. hi! i am not quite sure how to enter after checking the boxes that apply in the entry form. can you confirm that? and then how do we know if we’ve won? there isn’t a place to enter an email. this fancy form is new to me! 🙂

  2. Once again you amaze me 🙂 You have been given such a gift. I am simply not talented or patient enough to create planners and what-not.

    I appreciate your hard work and willingness to share it with your readers.

  3. Hurray Hurray for another great day here with Erica!!! I am SO buying this, but not until July because I am taking a mental month off to recharge! The forms look great – love there is one for sight words. Is there a section where I could check write in skills as they are introduced, then mastered?? I’m taking a page from the Home Learning Yr by Yr book by Rupp, and wanted to have that section in my planner next year.

    1. I second that Krista, and I have time this summer to do a recipe binder. Would LOVE to see Erica put together something like that too with editable recipe cards and dividers :). !!!!

  4. What a blessing this homeschool planner is to all that teach! This is an incredible planner for only $5! I have been looking for a better planner but just can’t afford some of the ones I have found, untill now! Thanks a million for offering this planner to the rest of us & keeping it affordable! I love all your printables! God bless you & your family on your homeschool journey! 🙂

  5. I love the colors… They are so happy! Let’s talk printers. I am not sue I could print a years worth of color pages on my printer cartridges… HP Deskjet 3050. Does anyone have advice?
