I searched all over Pinterest, Google and Teachers Pay Teachers trying to find a planner to use for our homeschool this year. I had a lot of trouble finding exactly what I wanted. Probably because I wasn’t even sure what I wanted. I also didn’t want to spend any $ on one. I wanted a simple printable format. Yes, I’m difficult, I know.
The past couple years I’ve just used teacher’s planners that I found in the Target dollar section. Now I’ve run out of my planner stash and honestly I was ready for a change.
After looking through a number of printable planners online, I decided to create my own with inspiration from a number of sources.
So, here’s what I came up with. It’s a basic everyday planner.
I actually use it after the fact to record what all we did each day. I don’t use it to plan ahead. I map out my overall goals for each semester via a simple chart with plans for reading (Hooked on Phonics), math (Life of Fred) and Five in a Row books (covers all the subjects). Then as each FIAR study comes (I spread them out over two weeks), I plan it all out on a word doc, order the necessary books from the library, and print all the necessary extra worksheets. Hope that all makes sense. I’m not a daily planner, but more of a overall weekly/monthly/semester planner.
Here’s the daily planner (in PDF and google doc form) if anyone is interested in using it. Hopefully the links will work and that you can copy it and edit it for yourself. If the links don’t work right and you’d like another form of the planner posted, just comment on this post and I’ll do my best to accommodate.
