I have always said I would be completely honest on this blog so before I go any further I want to say two things. #1-I have NEVER used a planner before this year, and #2-I do get a "commision" of sorts if you purchase a planner from this blog. Ok...moving on!
When I first recieved an email from Home Educating Family asking if would review their planner I was skeptical. I put it on my "to think about" list and moved on.
Before this year I had always used Heart of Dakota, which had everything "planned out" for me. I never really needed a planner. I did things "old school". I had notebook paper in a binder and marked off the days we had school. I tallied them up throughout the year to make sure we had enough days in. I hadn't really kept grades before either, but I knew this year with my oldest moving into 3rd I needed to get used to more planning.
So, I started planning for this school year and soon realized I was "pinning" all these printables for homeschool planning...so why not try the planner?
Some other things it includes are:
1. Subject to do lists for your kids! I taped these inside my kids pencil boxes so they can look at this and be reminded of what needs to get done each day.
2. Grocery lists that you can tear out!
3. Scripture reading for each day!
4. Encouraging homeschooling articles!
After spending 3 years without using a planner would I buy a Well Planned Day Planner next year? Yes, I would! And here is 3 reasons why:
1. I can put this planner up on my shelf at the end of the year, and I will always have that "documentation" of what we did this school year.
2. I can write grades, log field trips, attendence, look at what we have going on for the month, write down the extras I want to add on... all in one place! I love that!
