Product Description:

If you need some help getting organized, but want more flexibility than a standard lesson-plan book provides, read on! This journal combines lesson planner with other helpful forms uniquely suited to homeschooling. Intended as a permanent record, the spiral-bound volume can be filed away with your children’s work as a lasting reference to your school year. The first few pages contain helpful instructions for use and 2-year calendar to aid in planning. A“Linear Schedule of Home Schooling Events” - your year-at-a-glance summary of school-related activities - is followed by a page of yearly requirements like dental exams, test dates, home schooling conventions, etc. A two-sided page for recording by-subject test scores follows. The next several pages are devoted to recording information pertinent to planning field trips, including goals for learning. The heart of the organizer is a generous 200-day daily subject log. Recording boxes are ample and each page helpfully includes a lined, wide “NOTES:” column which allows for detailed recording of particulars on field trips, special activities, journal entries, whatever. At the end of the planner are 13 full pages of library list forms, allowing you to keep a record of books read or books that you hope to locate for use in unit studies. Reasonably priced, this journal could be a wonderful investment in tracking and organizing your school year.

I like the way it is set up and I have been using it for years.
Debbie S on Aug 17, 2020
This is the most straight forward easy to use journal ever. I use one for each child each year. An easy place to assign work so children can be more independent. They know what is expected of them each day in each subject. I usually fill out two weeks at a time to give me some flexibility in schedule.
Stanley S on Aug 5, 2020
I have used these for several years. Easy format for my students and, most importantly, it keeps them directed and accountable for the week:)
Sharon D on Jul 27, 2020
This Journal has everything I need to keep track of a year of homeschooling. Not complicated.
Diane M on Jul 25, 2020
It's the best planner for homeschooling!
Brooke S on Jul 23, 2020
I need a tool to help me keep plan lessons and document what we completed. This looks similar to a school planner that I used last year from a different company. I liked the planner that I used last year and think that I will like this one based on their similarities.

We love these journals. 9 years into homeschooling and these are still our favorite log keeping books!
Sarah H on Jun 13, 2020
Used in the pass and works effectively
Lisa C on Jun 10, 2020
This has been my favorite homeschool logbook for over twenty years. I can use it for multiple children. I write down what we do each day so I have a record, but also so I remember where I left off.
User on Apr 11, 2020
This offers an ample amount of writing space for each days assignments. We also get to choose which day we accomplish those assignments!

I have used this in the past years and it helps me stay organized so I just ordered a new one for this school year.

Love the set up of this homeschool plan book.
Naomi S on Sep 2, 2019
I had purchased this journal last year and loved the simple, clear format. It contains just what I wanted with no extra frills.
Erica P on Aug 27, 2019
This is the ONE product I have used for all 25 of my years homeschooling. It is simple, flexible, customizable. I used it for as many as 5 kids at once. There is a place for book lists in the back, field trips and grades in the front. I would simply circle the days on the calendar in the front to count our 180 days required in Pennsylvania.
Susan M on Aug 20, 2019
They are simple and easy to use.
Christina V on Jul 19, 2019
Tried and true and even when the kids want to abandon it, they always ask to have it again...

I have used this journal for years! For me, it is the BEST way to record my children's completed school work as a permanent record.
Tammy W on Sep 20, 2018
We have used these in the past and really like the "at a glance" spaces and other forms that are included.
dunamismum on Sep 17, 2018
I like the layout. Tried a different one and it just isn't as organized as this one.
Janet K on Aug 29, 2018
This is very simple and easy to use!
Brooke S on Aug 24, 2018
I am overwhelmed by overly complex systems and planning - this simple record and plan book has been a lifesaver for years. I can either use it to plan in advance, or simply to record what we have done, where we have gone, etc.
Lois T on Sep 7, 2017
I have used these for years. A great journal for keeping track of daily assignments.
Susan H on Aug 26, 2017

I need one spot to keep all my records. It's not required this year, but I want to get into the habit and try out this planner.
Lourdes T on Sep 23, 2016
I love The Homeschooler's Journal. It gives an outline to work with, but is flexible and easy to use.

I've been using this planner for years now. It is well laid out, simple to use and not cluttered with a bunch of unnecessary pages.
April H on Aug 18, 2016
Good organization!
KATHARINE S on Aug 10, 2016
I have used this journal every year for the past 15 years .This allows me to keep track of what was accomplished with a lot of flexibility. Some years I used the blocks for each of my children. Other years I use the blocks for each subject. I have even used a combination. It depended on how many children I was schooling at the time. It's a simple sturdy planner for a very good price.
Tanya G on Aug 2, 2016
I've used this journal for almost 20 years. It's worked well for our homeschooling needs. Why change?
User on Jul 22, 2016
I need a journal.
Laura P on Jul 19, 2016
I homeschooled my daughter and now her children. This the same journal I used with her! I loved then and I am very happy I found it on your site.

Use this every year to record student schooling
Lori P on Jun 21, 2016
I've used this planner in years past. I have not in the last couple and had trouble finding another that fits us so perfectly.

would i need one for each child?
A shopper on Jun 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You could use it for two children by color coding it.Like Black for things they do together blue for one child green for another child.In the back for library list there are enough pages for more than one child.This is how I am doing it for two children.
Can you tell me what colors are available?
Laurie B on Aug 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: These journals are available in red, blue, green, and yellow. If you order a single copy, we'll choose the color. If you order more than one, we'll assort the colors as much as we are able.

I've bought this every year for 16 years.
This journal has been perfect for keeping track of schooling for 5 children. The boxes are flexible so you can adjust dates to ones you need without skipping pages. You can use the daily boxes for keeping track of each student individually or keeping track of each subject and what each student does in each subject. I have done both ways and it works well either way.
It's been perfect for helping me keep track of what we've accomplished.

Favorite Planner
Truly, this is my favorite planner. 10 years of homeschooling, tried to change last year, didn't use one the year before. I'm coming back home to my favorite planner.

This planner is just perfect. It has plenty of room to keep track of each child's work, there is room in the back for book lists and plenty of room for notes from week to week. I've rejected every other planner I've looked at because none of them are as flexible as this one.

Super practical planner
I buy this planner every year. It has everything I need to stay organized and keep up with record-keeping. There is no fluff to weed through; just a practical, clear way to stay on top of homeschooling plans and goals.

I LOVE this planner! I've been homeschooling for five years and have used one Home Schooler's Journal every year After lots of searching for the perfect one I found this one and liked the simplicity and the clean pages The daily boxes are large with plenty of room for me to plan out each school week in detail It is exactly what I was hoping to find It is also very affordable I joke with my family that my planner is "my precious" because I love it so much and can't be without it

I too have used this planner for the last 12 years of our homeschooling It has room for all our lessons and weekly activities It is my main record keeping device and I have a stack of 12 for anyone who "needs" to see what my children have been learning

LOVE this product Have used it since my oldest was in Pre-K and he graduated last year! I can keep track of all four of my students in every subject Very flexible since nothing is pre-written You can record by subject or by student or mix the two as I did Love the "Notes" section where I jot down what we did and what life events happened that week -- my joys and my frustrations What a tremendous record to look back on and reminisce!

I did not like this planner I found it confusing and without enough line space for writing The concept is appreciated but I feel the execution and design leaves a lot to be desired
