In short, this is an amazing planner. It's very flexible to whatever your homeschool style is, very easy to use, and very efficient. I wrote a more detailed review on my blog: http://dayswithdesi.wordpress.com.
I am a planner by heart. I have an addiction to calendars that I have to fight constantly. LOL This planner is the best one I've seen or had. The pockets in front hold my tests. There is a year planner, monthly planner, and weekly planner. And it really makes you stay on track with your and your kids' spiritual lives. Overall, I will add this to a yearly purchase for homeschool supplies!!!
This planner is a great way to keep organized while homeschooling. The layout is wonderful, the tips are helpful, and the pages are high quality paper and even soft to the touch. I would highly recommend this to any homeschooling parent.
I've tried a number of Planners over the last 10 years of homeschooling, and this one is the most manageable, flexible, useful, and meaningful. The homeschooling lifestyle is a busy one and sometimes I give less time to God, who has made it all possible. This Planner is focused on Him and how our plans are His plan for us. I like having a verse for each week, it keeps me and our family in the Word. I also like recording the blessings from the week.So often we ask of Him, it's wonderful to teach my children to praise and thank Him. The layout of the calendar pages are efficient and flexible, I can label the columns and rows as it fits our family. For example, if we school on Saturday, instead of Tuesday one week, I'm not crossing out days and adapting the calendar. It is obvious this has been developed and used by a veteran homeschooling mom. Love the durable cover and the pretty colors. Thank you, Debra Bell and Apologia!
This planner fit the bill. I especially like the way it combines the monthly at a glance family calandar with the weekly homeschool planner. I also like the added documentaiton of reading lists and curriculums choices. I recommend it.
