Category Description for Ultimate Homeschool Planner:

Unbelievably, its all here! Correctly labeled a planning system, veteran homeschooler, Debra Bell, has given us the ultimate tool in preparing for and implementing a God-honoring, highly effective school year. In addition to the twelve monthly planners and the 48 weekly planners, there is a one-year planning grid, a student goal setter, pre-planning guides, record-keeping section, and year in review as well as a high school planning guide and example. You would expect all that, wouldnt you? But, theres more! The introductory Users Guide amounts to about three planning seminars wrapped up into one concise, how-to-do-it tutorial which includes sample pages, step-by-step plans, and a healthy dose of common sense homeschooling philosophy. And, just so you dont feel overwhelmed, theres an excellent Teaching Tips section in the back which includes information on learning styles and motivating the reluctant learner. Moms are encouraged to Count Your Blessings, Encourage Independence, and Record Your Progress and assured that Order brings peace. (St. Augustine). A common theme in Debra Bells writings and one that peeks out in many places in this planner is the need for raising our children to be independent learners.

Homeschool planner options used to be, well, utilitarian. Now, theyve burst into the realm of color and graphic design and I, for one, am applauding. But theres been no sacrifice of utilitarian aspects in this planner. Spiral-binding allows lay-flat usability. Plasticized card stock covers include inside storage pockets. Each planner section is color-coded (within the overall purple-gold-green theme). The one-year planning grid (on two facing pages) provides a small segment (1/4 by 1 1/8) for each day of each month (listed July through June). The weekly planner (each two facing pages) provides lined (1 by 1 7/8) spaces for six children and six subjects. One additional sidebar provides space for notes, supplies, and appointments. In addition to this weekly record-keeping space there are another two pages per week: one for recording the Bible Plan, the Battle Plan, specific Prayers, and noting Hospitality/Outreach and the other for recording the Weeks Memorable Moments and Evidences of Grace. I especially like the provision of this last weekly page because these types of notes buried within typical planner pages can be difficult to extract and sometimes going back to them are exactly the antidote needed for a homeschooling moms sagging spirit and resolve. The record-keeping section in the back includes places for grades, reading lists, and activities; each for six children. The planner concludes with a bibliography and a place for year-end review and notes. The planner is undated which means you will have maximum flexibility at the expense of having to write dates in.

Its obvious that this planner was designed from cover to cover by a homeschooling mom with years of experience, mountains of practical insight, and an eye for beauty. Enjoy! ~ Janice

Best price! I find I look at RRC for prices of books, curriculum, etc. that I find elsewhere because the price is usually better, and I find so many other great resources while I'm shopping here.
EMILY P on Aug 10, 2020
These are a little pricey comparatively (though I get the best price from Rainbow Resource), but are the most complete and thorough planners I have used. I love the space before each week for my own goals, thoughts and prayers.
Laura S on Aug 8, 2020
We've used this planner in previous years and love it! :D
Rachel S on Aug 4, 2020
I have used this plan book in the past and really enjoyed it. I chose this one as a plan book, but also a record of our goals, achievements, and blessings throughout the year.

Michele R on Jul 28, 2020
I LOVE the Ultimate Homeschool Planner. I've used this planner for the past couple school years and found it to be the most helpful planner to handle the planning and documenting of both our schools subjects and the responsibilities of life. It is so customizable and works well for the unique needs of a self-employed, homeschooling family.
Jackie D on Jul 17, 2020
This is the planner ive used for the past several years and it meets my needs well.
Peter C on Jul 11, 2020
I have used the planner before and have the other designs from previous years. It also looks cute.

I like the planning for high school feature, the scriptures, and the pretty cover.
Marsha M on Jul 2, 2020
I tried this last school year, and it helped me tremendously to stay organized! It is solidly constructed, so it can handle a good amount of wear and tear. My children also used the student planners that go along with this, and they are great too!
User on Jun 11, 2020
I used this planner last year, and it was perfect for tracking my 2 students' work all year. It must have been great, because I used it throughout the entire year, which usually isn't the case.
Kristin H on May 28, 2020
Love the details for planning. Seems like a great deal of heart and experience went into this planner. We are new on this homeschool journey but are determined to succeed. With covid we were kind of launched into this quite quickly. This week we have changed to a private homeschool program that we have wanted to do for many years. Now we have the chance. Many prayers. Hoping we can make this work for more then just this year.
Jessica M on May 15, 2020

Carol C on May 1, 2020
I liked the accountability of writing my children's achievements down weekly so I can remember them later.

I have used it in the past and I loved the space it provided to keep me organized. I also loved the space for journaling and the words of encouragement throughout the book.
Jennifer T on Aug 13, 2019
These are the best most thorough mom planners!
Matthew S on Jul 14, 2019
Exactly what I was looking for in a homeschool planner! Guidance and ideas for a new homeschool mom, but with the flexibility in the weekly section to make it my own.
Justine S on Jul 12, 2019
Been using this planner for about 5 years now. In 19 years of homeschooling, this is the only one I've actually used! The household runs off of it - everything in one place.
Brenda E on Jul 10, 2019
My absolute favorite planner! Lots of open headers both vertically and horizontally for student names, subjects or whatever. Also, the large open boxes with lines for each day to write in. I also found a gal on etsy that makes subject stickers that you can personalize to fill in the headers. Plenty of room to use other stickers to represent gym, piano lessons etc.
Kelly K W on Jul 8, 2019
This home-school planner is very useful if you are homeschooling multiple children.
Christine E on Jun 12, 2019
Undated & option to use horizontally or vertically.
Jacquelyn R on Jun 10, 2019
Love this one! I buy it every year - very helpful for teaching me how to plan a whole year (not just homeschool, but for life).
Jessica O on Apr 4, 2019
This is my favorite planner. It's the best.
Heather K on Mar 23, 2019
Love this planner! Fill in the dates yourself. Very flexible. Lays nice and flat. Spiral binding works well.
Carol C on Nov 26, 2018
I used this a couple years ago, went to a different one last year, and am coming back to this one. It has everything we need in one place!
Sarah S on Sep 4, 2018
This is my second time purchasing the Ultimate Homeschool Planner and I find it so helpful in planning and organizing out our homeschool year. I particularly appreciate the ability to fill in our own dates, as other planners begin in July or August and not all students begin school in those months!
Jennifer B on Aug 20, 2018
Love the inviting and encouraging layout. I have noticed a few concerning reviews about overall quality, but with care I hope to be able to use this throughout the entire year, to store memories and accomplishments as well as plans and goals.
Jacqueline R on Aug 19, 2018
This planner has more than the standard features. I liked the parts where I can write character goals and family goals, the undated format and the spiritual aspects. Can't wait to get it and start using it!
Rose J on Aug 15, 2018
I've used the yellow version of this planner before and loved it!
Tina H on Aug 8, 2018
I used this last year. It was the best planner I have come across. It not only helped me to keep track of our curriculum, daily schedule, etc. But, it also helped me to set and keep goals for the year as well as keep a journal of the events, answered prayers and prayer requests we had!
Maria C on Jul 26, 2018
Seems to be the best planner I have found...gives some blanks for organizing each day along with intentional places to keep good track of the overall year of each child.
trish r on Jul 20, 2018
Ive used the orange edition for the last 2 years and loved it.
Jennifer C on Jul 5, 2018
Praying it is a good fit and has high quality paper, don't want to write in all the dates, but I'm excited for all the resources.
Elizabeth Z on Jun 29, 2018
Best planner I have found for detailed planning for four students.
David M on Jun 23, 2018
This is my go-to planner. We are Charlotte Mason homeschoolers, and I like the freedom to write-in our subjects.
Rodney S on Jun 18, 2018
Have been using it for years, and love it! Plenty of room for keeping track of multiple kids and uplifting quotes as well!
Baron M on Jun 2, 2018
I'm new to home schooling and chose this book to help me stay organized as well as to track goals so I can reward the kids for each goal achieved.
Lynette M on May 5, 2018

EMILY P on Aug 10, 2020
Is this planner only for the 2015-2016 year or can it be started at any time?
A shopper on Feb 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This planner is undated therefore it can be used at any point during the year or for any year. I didn't realize that when I was purchasing it. I kept seeing the older version for sale but at the current price and it didn't make sense to me why someone would pay full price for an "old" planner. Until I received mine. Then I realized it was completely undated!

Great planner! This is my 3 rd year using it and I have really enjoyed it.
I love this planner. I had the orange for the last couple of years and I loved that one too, but I bought this one this year for a little change. I like it because I am new to homeschooling and not by nature an organized person, and I didn’t even know where to begin to plan for my daughter ‘s school year. This broke down the process in a very practical comprehensive way and made it enjoyable as well. It is beautiful and the quotes and tips throughout it are very relevant and encouraging.

Blue is really pretty.

Overkill in some areas...not enough in others
I started using this planner after about 13 years of a popular planning software that had moved to an online format. This planner has saved me about half the time each week in putting together my 6 students' assignments for the week. I love that!

When I need to reschedule, since I'm just planning a week at a time, I just rewrite an assignment the next week, if need be. Handwriting is so much faster than the software's constant clicking, checking boxes, expanding rows, etc.

I was expecting this planner to have a place for the overall plan for a subject, for curriculum that is more than just "lesson 1", "lesson 2", "lesson 3", etc. There isn't anything like that, so I will need to have some external storage of information for curriculum like that. There also isn't an easy way to figure out how many more lessons a student has in a particular subject.

I am only using this planner for the assignments that I do personally with my students. Any independent work is written straight in the student/teen planners. There simply isn't enough room for ALL assignments in this planner with 6 students (even though there are 6 columns/rows).

This has been a huge improvement over our old system, but for next year, I will probably just use a regular spiral notebook or will print out grid pages and put them in a thin binder.
