About the Type of Planner Created Here.

By reading this section below you understand how this planner is intended to be used and get the most out of it.

A. It is a Daily Planner.

I am not impressed with weekly planners. There is never enough room to write. A weekly overview is good but I just don’t feel weekly planners have enough detail. I have a weekly form that you can ADD to your planner to see a weekly glance but there is more room to “plan” when it is daily.

B. Printed on both Sides.

All my forms are lined up so that most can be printed on front or back. There are a few pages like my 2 page calendar spread that do have specifics on which side to print. Do not waste paper.

C. Used for Multiple Ages.

Even though I have the undated 180 page lesson planner divided up into 3 sections, it can be used with up to 6 children. Draw a line in between each of the 3 sections and you now have 6 sections. Also, you can divide one section for younger toddlers or preschoolers where less room may be needed. In addition, I have a different form for families that are larger. They have unique needs.

D. Pages are undated.

By having an undated Lesson Plan and you filling in the date, you can skip school on days you need to and pick back up without erasing. Talking about erasing, that brings me to this next point.

One of my biggest pet peeves about lesson planning is the view that because one is using paper/pen we need to erase.

We do not and here is why. Lesson Planning is just as much about journaling after we school as it is planning slightly ahead. Do NOT make the mistake like I did one year and plan the WHOLE year {yep that is right and yes I had TONS of time in it and immediately was “behind” but I learned a very, very valuable lesson}.

Life is not planned always and so our homeschool journey cannot be. Life is partly made up of appointments and partly unplanned and just “living”. This lesson planner needs to be utilized the same way. Plan generally, fill in your planner after you school specifically. By saving a part of your schedule each day at the end of your school day just like a public teacher does, you can plan for the “immediate future”. The immediate future is next week, tomorrow or a few days NOT the whole month. In addition, a huge advantage to this method is that you adjust lesson plans quickly, that day if necessary if something is not working which is the whole reason a lot of us homeschool in the beginning.

F. Coil Bind, {not notebook, not comb binding- there is a difference}.

Because you are not sure what you may want in your planner, a lot of homeschoolers may think that a Notebook style planner would be good because you can add to it. But I do not feel it is and this is why. You will be constantly aggravated by it and tempted to keep adding “perfect forms” {do not exist} because you have not reigned yourself in to use a system. An unorganized person is one who constantly wants to keep adding to a system instead of utilizing one that is close to what they need. Organization is about sticking to a system not constantly adding more work for yourself. Come over, come over {can you hear me tenderly calling} to the organized side and breathe easy by using what you selected and learning more about yourself as to what you like or don’t like. The next one you make will be even better, just don’t aggravate yourself. In addition, notebooks are bulky and hard to write in with the 3 rings that seem to get in the way. Notebooks work good for timelines and notebooking where you are constantly adding content. That is NOT what you want to do with this planner.
