Can we talk about homeschool planners? As I am gearing up for our next school year, I begin the search for The Perfect Homeschool Planner. Like finding it will magically make me a super organized homeschooling diva! I’ve never been organized. If we’re being honest, I’m a bit scatterbrained. A bit blonde, if you will. Are the boys still learning and growing as little men? Yes. But sometime I feel like I’m barely treading water.
I would so love to be organized. I would love to have everything planned out and running smoothly. A great homeschool planner would totally be able to help me plan out our days and organize our work, field trips, classes, etc. But who/what is going to make me stick to the plan?! That’s pretty much where I fall short. I’m pretty sure I have ADD (definitely no hyperactivity in this Mama anymore). The slightest shiny thing can distract me.
That pretty much sums it up, right there. I’m working on it! Don’t judge.
So, homeschool planners! I’ve used the planner from Well-Planned Day in the past and LOVED it. They’re beautiful, tons of lines, shopping lists, etc. But I feel like I wasted a lot it. Plus I wish the weekend area was bigger. Daddy tends to do things with the boys on the weekends and there was only a small block for Saturday and Sunday. I want to be able to have their Scouting activities in there as well. The more I look at it, the more I WANT it to be The One. They’re definitely the prettiest homeschool planners on the block.
There are a few good ones over at Currclick, too. I’ve checked out The Girlfriend’s Guide 2 Homeschool Planning, My Favorite Planner with Blog Planner, and The Homeschool Planner from C4 Creations. I looked at the others offered at Currclick and these are the three I would consider. I’ve almost talked myself out of The Homeschool Planner, so I guess it’s down to the first two if I go for one from Currclick. If I buy one at all.
I am leaning toward making my own. Again. I made my own one year using the ridiculously awesome FREE homeschool planner download at NewBeeHomeschooler.com. Check it out. It’s crazy that she gives it to you. And by crazy I mean God bless her! You can tell a LOT of work went into it.
If I do end up making my own, I will totally share it here. If you have a favorite homeschool planner I would LOVE for you to share it in the comments below!! Maybe I am missing that perfect planner that I just know is out there somewhere.
