I am a planner. Whether you are referring to homeschool planning options, meal planning, home scheduling, I plan and organize it all. I LOVE planners, schedules, checklists, etc.
There are endless homeschool planning options. It starts with the method in which you homeschool (Classical, Charlotte Mason, Unit Studies, School at Home), and then moves on to include the type of yearly schedule you want to keep (Public School, Year Round, Custom), and includes schedule type choices (4 Day Weeks, Block Scheduling, Loop Scheduling).
Homeschool planning is a varied and personal choice. One of the most important things to remember is to keep your life, your children’s needs, and your needs in the forefront as you make choices for your homeschool.
Throughout my more than a decade of homeschooling I have used more planners and planning methods than you can count on two hands. Each time I have used something new it was to suit a different schedule or child’s needs.
Not only will I share those with you, but I have also created an extensive list of planner options for you to choose from!

PLUS there are FREE Plan Your Year Homeschool Planning Forms available which are fully editable. This means you can type all your own stuff in them before you print them off. I happen to be a pen and paper girl, so I printed them blank and then wrote on them myself. (Hey, it’s a great excuse to use those awesome colored pens I bought!)
