Student Planner

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



I am SO excited to share a new printable student planner with you all today! Over the last few months my girls and I have been working together to create a larger planner (8.5″ x 11″) for them to use since the half-sized planners just didn’t have enough space for them to fit it all in. We’ve been tweaking and getting it just right before we shared it with you all.

The result is a student planner that we all love. It is FULL of color, has plenty of space, is undated, and we can print off a new copy each year and bind it however we please. We initially thought about putting it in a 1/2” binder, but ended up deciding to have it spiral bound and it turned out great!

We chose not to date the planner because the girls are able to personalize it more to their liking. It also means that the planner is good for years to come. They’ve actually enjoyed taking the time to get it set up, so it’s a win-win for us!

Inside Our Student Planner

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.

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.

Purchase a Student Planner

This student planner is undated so you have the option of printing off a new copy each year. Each planner is available for $10 and you are more than welcome to print off copies for each of your children – this year and in years to come. Purchase both planners together in a bundle and save even more! 

Your purchase also allows access to a ‘buyers only’ page where optional pages will be added including additional dated covers and other pages as readers/users request.

The Student Planner is only available as a pdf download and prints off double-sided. There are THREE different purchase options. Choose from the following: 

  • Mirka Augustine

    Hi there! I was excited about finding your planner via the Build Your Bundle sale recently. Are you able to email me directly about printing issues and Q’s? Thanks kindly. :)

  • Katie

    It’s so beautiful! Can’t wait to print it! I’m going to do one for me and one for my daughter!

  • Oh, Katie!! Thanks so much – hope she loves it as much as ours do!

  • Kathy

    It looks great! I make my own yearly teaching planners because I have never found one that I really like when it comes to planning out for all my kids in one spot. Now that my oldest is in need of doing her own planning, I have been looking to either find one or make one (which I really don’t have time for just now). This will be great for her! I love all the colors and designs too. That is one thing I don’t have much of in mine because I am limited with the programs I am using… but I do have some fun colors on certain pages which makes planning bright and cheery!

  • Katie

    I went to print my planner and I can’t find in anywhere! Is there any way you could tell me where I can find the download once I’ve purchased again?

  • Jessica Dansby Graham

    Is there a way to get access to the updated calendar page if I purchased this during the Build Your Bundle Sale?

  • Jessica – check the last page of the planner. There is a link to the secret page as well as the password where the extras are! :)

  • T. Raines

    I know the front and back pages you printed are on card stock, but did you just use regular weighted paper for the other pages?

  • Jessica Dansby Graham

    Thank you! Just now figured out my printers borderless printing (after cleaning out a mess of leaked ink inside the printer) so I guess I didnt make it to the last page! My daughter (6th) is very excited to have her own planner. She begged me to get your planner when she saw me looking at it.

  • I purchase my paper from Costco (not in a huge box, but a plastic wrapped ream). It’s a heavier feel paper overall and I prefer that compared to a lighter paper. It’s a 24 lb Xerox brand. :)

  • Janie Carlson

    How many pages is it total? I’m trying to figure out how much paper to buy.

  • 152 total with back cover black (so 76 double sided).

  • Gracie Hatahet

    Hi just wanted to know if i was to change my printer settings to make it print out 5×7 do you know if that would work out? Many thanks x

  • Gracie – I’m not sure how that would work. I’ve never tried it, but I have a feeling it would involve a lot of trimming and cutting!

  • Gracie – I’m not sure how that would work, especially with the double sided pages. I’ve never tried it, but I have a feeling it would involve a lot of trimming and cutting!
