It has what I need and isn't overrun with pages or features I don't need. Plenty of space for lesson plans for one or more kids; reading list, curriculum page, extra activities, test scores, couple of calendars, and plenty of planning pages.
There are areas for noting field trips, book reading lists, appointments, and other things. She thought of a lot when planning this planner. It is in a spiral binder so it lays flat. The only thing that doesn't work for me, personally, is that I like to take a lot of notes when I am doing my lesson planning so I don't have to reference other materials. There just isn't enough room for me to make all the notes I like to for daily lesson planning. If you are a "nutshell" note taker, then this is definitely a great planner all the way around for you. Additionally, I noticed the author lives about an hour down the road from me, so I really wanted to support her.
This planner was ideal for our needs. There is plenty of details for record keeping, but not too much extra stuff that I will not use. We only have one student, so will be able to use this same planner next year. It is ideal for families with more than one child being schooled.
I have used this planner for several years to help keep track of 4 children's school work. I have two children that have moved up to the High School version of this book now and that one is equally convenient to use. I would recommend this lesson planner if you have more than one student. It is nice to have something to keep track of everything in a book that isn't bulky. I have six children and this will be the only lesson planner I use (other than the High School version).
