If you’re a disorganized mom like me, a planner is something that I look at with hope and use with dread. That’s usually because it’s full of useless information – or not enough. I’m not very tempted to use a planner that’s just a bunch of white pages with black lines. SNOOZE FEST!

These Planners Are No Joke!
Last year was the first time I received a Schoolhouse Planner as part of my Schoolhouseteachers.com membership. Let me tell you, it’s chock full of useful information for planning our homeschool, as well as tons of other great perks. There are actually several different planners, so let me go through them so you can see what I mean! Each planner is in e-book format and is interactive.
I’m sure that most of you are already looking ahead to the 2013-2014 school year, so check this out to see which ones are right for your family. Be sure to read all the way through, because I’ll show you how you can get these for FREE – and I have a giveaway, too! 🙂
Alright, I told you that these planners are full of info, and if you needed convincing, let me tell you: this planner is over 800 pages. Take what you need and leave the rest, but I think you’ll be surprised at how much useful information is in it you didn’t know you were missing! There are great articles written just for the homeschool parent by experts in the field, a massive amount of planning pages and calendars, grocery lists, meal planning charts, field trip logs, transcripts, and so, so much more.
Do you have a child in your home school with some special needs or that learns in a unique way? I love that there is a special planner just for them! There are weekly behavior and food diaries, special articles full of information from experts, individualized IEPs for your home school, therapy forms, medical forms, planning pages, and so much more. This will help your learner to plan ahead and track successes!
Your younger students (roughly K-4th grade) will love this Primary Schoolhouse Planner! It has fun articles, recipes they can help prepare, organizational tools for school and in the household, chore charts, a Bible reading schedule, helpful hint pages (such as grammar rules and math tables), and so much more. What a fun way to learn to track and reach goals throughout the school year!
The Intermediate Planner was specifically developed with a middle school student in mind! Your 5th-8th grader will love the calendars, planning sheets, Bible reading schedules, address book, and tons of wonderful articles written especially for them on a variety of topics. This age is a particularly good time to get kids in the habit of keeping good records and sticking to a few set plans. Being able to have it in planner form makes it easy to use and fun to keep up with!
This planner is made for your High Schooler to use on their own. Not only can your High School student plan out all of their school work, but there are places on the planner to log community service hours, college and career checklists, transcripts, goal-planning pages, and lots of encouraging and informative articles. This is a great way to motivate your 9th-12th grader and offer some ways to practice good time management as well!
