Student Planner PDF Download – TWO Choices! (and a SALE!)

Two choices of student planners from Homeschool Creations - help get your student on track_edited-4

Last fall I shared the student planner I had created for our daughters and after a full year of using it, both she and her sister decided they love it! It has been a perfect fit for our family, but several of you emailed and asked if there was another graphic option available – because a few sons felt it wasn’t quite for them. 

After some digging, we found one that our family loved, so another graphic choice for the Student Planner is now available – yay! To celebrate, be sure to read through to the bottom of the post because we are having a sale for one week only! 

About the Student Planners

FullSizeRender 64

The planners are undated, so you can save the file to your computer and reprint them year after year. At the back of the planner you’ll even find a link to a ‘secret’ page where you can download bonus pages to go along with the planner (and if you have a suggestion, feel free to email me and ask!). 

Want a peek inside? I promise it’s super simple – because we found we really didn’t need so much extra stuff, full of color, and ready to download and print. This is a look at our planner from last year (the circle graphic version). 

Email subscribers can watch the video here.

A quick note: I figured out that our printer will print BORDERLESS. It was one of the paper choices in settings. In the video you’ll see some of the pages that we experiments with (ones that were or weren’t printed all the way to the edge). Our front and back covers were printed onto cardstock and then laminated for extra durability. We use a heavy weight paper (24 lb.) to print the planner and make the pages a little thicker.

The Student Planner contains:

Weekly Student Planner layout from Homeschool Creations

  • 8 1/2” x 11” undated pages – use it year after year!
  • year at a glance dates
  • student information and schedule page
  • 12 blank monthly planning pages
  • weekly planning pages for 8 subjects
  • planning for every day of the week (smaller spaces for Saturday/Sunday)
  • goals, notes, and ‘what I learned’ section
  • tracking for books read
  • 2 layouts: August through July or January through December
  • link to a password protected page where you can download updated calendars and bonus pages for the planners

The hexagon graphic student planner features the same inside layout with the colors green, orange, and a medium blue for the weekly layouts.

Purchase both planners together in a bundle and save even more! There are THREE different purchase options.

Meal Planning Master List – Free Printable

Meal planning can be time consuming – and I’m all about saving as much time as I can so I can enjoy time with my family and the food that’s going on our table! These meal planning master list were created to go along with my Weekly Meal Planner so I could quickly pull meal ideas by category and plug them into the meal planner and go.

There are often meals I forget and this helps stay out of the “same old-same old” rut we can easily get into. This list gives me a place to write down go-to breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, desserts, sides, and family favorites to keep handy when meal planning.

Editable Meal Planning Master List

June 2016 personal planner pages from Homeschool Creations_edited-2

We’ve wrapped up our school year and I cannot believe that we are already in June! May has been truly crazy at our house.

I’m am definitely ready for some peace and calm for a bit and June is promising me just that. White space on my calendar makes me a happy girl. 

To help you get your days and weeks a little more organized, I have June 2016 Personal Planner Pages for you all to use, and I truly hope they are a help to you in the upcoming weeks.

May 2016 Personal Planning Pages – FREE Printable

May personal planner pages from Homeschool Creations

With May almost here, it means the end of the school year is in sight and summer plans are in the making. Our May is already looking busy, which can overwhelm me on many levels, so having a visual of where and when we are supposed to be somewhere helps so much. 

To help you get your days and weeks a little more organized, I have May Personal Planner Pages for you all to use. I hope these are a help to you in the upcoming days.

My May Goals

April was a wee bit crazy and a month I don’t necessarily want to repeat any time soon. Aside from family visiting, we lost the brakes on one of our vehicles, our septic pump quit working, and that threw a kink in many of our plans. We also started babysitting the cutest little baby (but only for a few weeks). I also had the pleasure of speaking again at Teach Them Diligently, with another trip coming up in May.

The month of May has more family visiting, my husband celebrates his 50th birthday (!!!), and one of my cousins is visiting from the Netherlands. We’ve wrapped up one co-op and our second one will be finishing up as well. 

Here’s a peek at my goals for the upcoming month:

  • drink 100 oz. water daily and start walking daily now the weather is beautiful
  • take my vitamins (I’ve been GREAT a remembering this the last month!)
  • pick 2 books from my 2016 reading list
  • dates with each of the kids (rotate with my hubby)
  • stick to our re-newed budget (we switched to Every Dollar from YNAB to sync with our phones)
  • print off pictures and scrapbook/layout one event. I’ve printed pictures and stuck them in a book – need to add WORDS!!
     

Overall in April, my goals did great and I’m looking forward to seeing what May brings!!

Homeschool Curriculum Shopping List Printable

Homeschool curriculum shopping list - a printable to help you track curriculum needed, wanted, and purchased with best prices from Homeschool Creations_edited-1

Every year I create multiple lists for our curriculum wants and needs. In the past, those lists have included sticky notes and a giant mess of information with prices highlighted so I know if I’m getting the best price – especially if I happen to hit a great used curriculum sale. When that became too overwhelming, I consolidated it all into one simple list to carry around with me to convention. (p.s. If you are ever curious to see our homeschool curriculum choices, you can always find them HERE.)

Last year I shared a few pages of my shopping list, but after many readers emailed and asked, there are now TWELVE different color options (apparently you all enjoy color coding as much as I do!!), including a black & white and plain version for those of you who don’t have a color printer. 

A Curriculum Snapshot

curriculum shopping list example

While I typically have my phone with me to do a quick price check, it’s great to know if a special a vendor is offering is worth grabbing right then – and it’s always helpful to know if I already own an item (not that I’ve ever purchased something twice – cough).

Our literature list changes from year to year, and sometimes there are books we already have on hand or require new copies of (if you are looking for a book with excellent literature suggestions, check out this one here – it’s my go-to literature guide). The overall list is a great snapshot to see what areas we may need to beef up a little academically.

Color-coded lists

Curriculum shopping list - a printable to help you track curriculum needed, wanted, and purchased with best prices_edited-1

You may notice there are MANY different colored lists. It’s no secret we color code our kids (Don’t judge, please – it keeps me sane). It really does help me visualize which child needs what curriculum, so the colors you see are to help me (and YOU) remember who the curriculum is for. It’s something silly and simple, but it definitely works if you are a visual person.
