The Schoolhouse Planner Review
Me and my love for organization. The love of forms, forms, and much more. And those loves have not been disappointed.
This planner is amazingly comprehensive. Think of a form that you might wish for in a planner and more than likely it is already contained in the 247 page e-book that you download for $34.95 from the Schoolhouse Store. It comes as an interactive pdf file that comments and markups can be added to and data can also be typed and saved into the various forms.
The Schoolhouse Planner starts out with a calendars so that you can view your school year at a glance. Each month of the school year comes with various resources that include recipes for easy dinners, articles for homeschool families on a wide variety of topics and resource lists with quick web links. There are also an unbelievable amount of forms for homeschool planning and household organization (73 to be exact, but who's counting?).
A glimpse into the forms provided for homeschooling:
- annual plans and goals
- curriculum planning
- grading tools
- weekly planning
- craft, field trip and activities logs
- website log
- nature journal and science lab sheet
- and so much more...
And forms for household organization:
- housekeeping reminders and schedules
- important contact infomation
- babysitter guide
- menu planners and pantry inventory
- chore charts (for kids and adults)
- budget and financial sheets
- address book
- gardening plans
- prayer journals
- guided Bible reading
- and more!
I was truly amazed by the completeness of the topics and articles covered. I never expected to have a copy of the Bill of Rights, Emancipation Proclamation or the Declaration of Independence in a planner...and those are just a few of the many "quick lists" of information available. Articles that are included in the planner (once a month) cover topics such as unit studies, teaching writing, solving science struggles, and chore training tips.
If you would like to see a peek of the planner you can follow this link and it will give you a little teaser of what you will be getting. The Schoolhouse Planner is divided into three main sections: monthly plans, homeschool forms, and household forms.
The great thing about this planner is you can print off only what you need or want to use. The forms will always be available to you whenever you choose. Using this planner along with your printer and a binder will enable you to pull so much together in your household and have it located in one convenient place.
