20 Best Tips

*NEW* Weekly Homeschool Planner

This post may contain affiliate or advertiser links. Read my full disclosure policy .

For the past three years I have been working on something behind the scenes, but never got around to actually DOING anything about it – as in sharing it with you. If I’m being honest there are a lot of things I’ve started and never completely finished. The main reason is perfectionism. 

It’s something I’ve struggled with for a very long time. While it may seem like I procrastinate on projects (which I do, in a way), the honest truth is – if it isn’t matching up to what I picture in my head, something inside me shuts down and doesn’t keep going. My brain has a million ideas, and there isn’t enough time. I can’t get it put together the way I envision, so it gets pushed aside. 

The last few years have been a process of me working toward getting over that hump, one baby step at a time. I’m definitely not all the way there yet, but maybe you can relate? 

One of the things I’ve been working on is a paper and pen version of my homeschool planner. I’ve been using it the past few years and love it – it’s simple but pretty. Efficient. While I love my other planner, staying off my laptop during school time has been important to me. This planner makes me smile (and that’s a great thing) and keeps my focus on the four people in front of me, rather than off on a rabbit trail. For my brain too, putting pen to paper really helps me connect the dots and remember things.

Because I love it so much, I really want to share it with you all – and I truly appreciate your patience in waiting with me.  I’m still tweaking a few things, but the best part is, I can share those tweaks via a bonus download page available only to those who purchase the planner! 

A Peek Inside the Weekly Homeschool Planner 

A few things to know about this planner: 

  • 8.5” x 11” undated pages – over 150 pages to use year after year (just like our Student Planners)
  • Colorful – not overly crazy, but subtle. Pretty makes planning fun!
  • Plenty of room for both weekly planning and a month-at-a-glance overview.
  • 10 subject areas with lined planning space
  • Planning pages include a month-at-a-glance, a weekly layout, homeschool vision, homeschool requirements, curriculum planning, daily schedules, and more.
  • Bonus download page (password protected) where you can find additional pages to add to your planner: curriculum wish list, field trip planning, goals for children, names/addresses, notes, unit planning, yearly attendance, and (coming soon) editable monthly and weekly pages.
  • 2 layouts: one labeled Monday-Friday and another with no days of the week so you can write in your own schedule 

A quick note: Our printer will print BORDERLESS. It is one of the paper choices in our printer settings. 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 Your Copy of the Planner 

If you would like to purchase a copy of the new Weekly Homeschool Planner, you can do so by clicking the link below

This planner is undated so you have the option of printing off a new copy each year. The pdf planner is available for $10 and you are more than welcome to print off copies for yourself – this year and in years to come. Please note the Weekly Homeschool Planner is only available as a pdf download and prints off double-sided. 

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.

I truly hope this planner is a blessing to you all!

10 great tips for people who are teaching a struggling learner


Would you rather SUBSCRIBE BY RSS?


  1. Are there different pages included in the homeschool planner that are not in the student planner?

    • Yes – off the top of my head (I’m on my phone) these are more focused to mom, including unit planning, attendance sheets, field trip planning, etc.

  2. Jennifer says

    The Backtoschool2018 promo code is not working. It keeps pulling up the full price.

    • I updated it to do a flat amount rather than the percentage – I’m sorry. For some reason the percentage isn’t working.

  3. Are the editable pages available? If so what program would be needed to edit the pages? I have printed my own planners since we started this journey many years ago and this year would like to use something a little different but I don’t want it to be handwritten.

    Will the editable also become available in the student planners and if so when?

    • At this point I am not planning on editable pages for the student planner. The files for the teacher’s planner are uploaded and ready to go! :)

    Hi Jolanthe,

    It sounds like you’ve had a crazy summer! I purchased your Teacher’s Planner and Student Planner a year or two ago, but can’t find the files on my computer. I am on a new computer this year as my old one died, so maybe those files didn’t transfer. :( How do I get the download for both undated planners?
    If you can’t find a record of my purchase, I don’t mind paying for the planners again as your planners are the best! My kids and I love them!
    Thanks so much! Cathy

  5. is this print and go–ie is it ready to send off for printing? or would i have to piece it together,,,

    • The only part that might be hard is deciding if you want to add in some of the extra pages at the end of the planner. There are some pages that we choose not to use in the planner, but otherwise you can print it as is. There is a website page with bonus files to add in if you choose.

  6. Meaghan Damron says

    Can you add the year-at-a-glance for the Homeschool Planner for 2019-2020?
    That is the only one that I am not seeing :)
    Thank you!
