Today, I have 5 beautiful and detailed planners for homeschool moms because your organizational tool matters. And your homeschool planner should reflect how you plan.
For instance, you do not plan for a classroom or need a planner with blanks for 30 students.
However, you do need room to write if only for one child or multiple children that you’re planning for.
In addition, not all states have the same record keeping laws.
Choosing a homeschool planner matters because you have unique needs for not only your state, but the homeschool approach you’ve chosen.
Having room to write is important for homeschool moms as we choose planners.
Moreover, some of us start homeschooling by following a traditional public-school approach.
After we’ve homeschooled for a while, we embrace the true reasons we homeschool.
Adjusting lesson plans to fit our children and choosing a homeschool approach which helps our children learn best are most important.
Power Pages Planner
However, one foundation on which I build homeschool planners on is something that motivates or impacts me for the day. So, it’s important that you make the planner fit YOUR needs as well.
For example, one huge thing that motivates me are power words.
I work on a mindset each day. And having just one word to think about or shift my focus can make my day positive while planning.
I use power words as dividers in my planners.
It is a subtle way to remind me either to relax or rev up depending on the feeling I’m experiencing.
And so I created four power pack word pages.
Homeschooling is flat out tough some days and I want homeschooling planning something I look forward to.
Printable Homeschool Lesson Planner
In addition, when you print your own homeschool planner you not only get exactly what you want but can save money.
Too, you don’t really need expensive equipment to print your own planner.
For years I’ve used this Canon Pixma Printer.
And I even took it with me when we moved overseas because it fits into my backpack.
Next, I’ve always coil bound my planners. I do not like the rings which come on notebooks and want my planner to lay flat.
It’s important when you’re printing your planner to decide how you want to bind it.
Finally, if you purchase a printable planner online or print one for free, remember to add specific sections that you need which you can find here Best and Unique 7 Step Homeschool Planner.
