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

Excellent record keeping agenda. Sturdy, well-made, & durable with beautiful aesthetics. Also ample space to record & plan coursework for multiple students.
User on Jun 17, 2019
I used this planner last year and love it! I love that it doesn't have dates/headings pre-marked to allow for max flexibility AND the Scripture and other quotes to inspire reflection and praise each week. Thank you!

I used this same planner in a different design last year and was very pleased with the layout and durability!

A friend showed me her planner like this and it looked amazing and needed one so went for it!
Jessica G on Aug 3, 2018
Keeps track of so much! Each year I have learned to use more and more of this planner. Lots of details and shows you many different ways to use the planner for whatever fits your family best. Love the encouraging quotes along the way and the areas for writing and remembering things are harder to record in the grade books. Things like what we did together, how we served and how God blessed our year. Love this planner!

Best homeschool planner that I have found
Angela T on Jun 12, 2018
I used the blue version this last year and really loved it so am purchasing it again in another color to keep years separate.
Brittney K on May 2, 2018
I have used another planner in the past, but wanted more room to record stuff on the weekends, so I think this will fit my needs better.

It appeared to offer additional organization options that the others did not.
Tammy S on Aug 14, 2017
I've been using this planner for years and while I don't use all the parts of it, I like how flexible the weekly chart is and I use the grade book in the back. I also like the quotes and margin ornaments. The pockets on the front and back covers are handy as well. Over all this is a pretty and practical planner with lots of nice extras.
Moriah U on Aug 12, 2017
Looking forward to planning my homeschool year and hope this helps
Dorothy F on Jul 9, 2017
I have used it in the past, I tried something new last year...missed all the things in this planner and had to purchase it for my next school year.
Margaret S on Jun 29, 2017
To hopefully help me get organized and keep better records. If you haven't used a planner for homeschooling before it can freak you out. Thankfully I had my well organized husband there to calm me down and read through it with me. Yeah, my husband is super awesome!!! I still need to put this to good use. I am planning on it for this month, we homeschool year round.
Ruth M on May 12, 2017
It helps me a lot to get organised with my three children.
Jessica T on May 1, 2017
Couldn't be without it.
Kathy H on Apr 24, 2017
So hard to choose between this one and the well-planned day one. Haven't used either before. Ultimately decided on this one because it is more customizable (more exciting to set up), and had a little bit more space than the well-planned day. I also think I will prefer the months together followed by the weeks rather than month-week-month-week format.
Janelle L on Mar 24, 2017
My friend had it and it looked like just what I needed.
chris k on Mar 7, 2017

Adding a co-op to our schedule this year along with meeting the needs of my 4 homeschooling children, toddler, homemaking and homesteading tasks....I'll need this comprehensive book to keep me organized!
User on Aug 12, 2016
It seemed to have what i needed<br />-a year view<br />-week by week for each individual student <br />- a place for goals, field trips, ect.

Yellow has 52 weeks, other color choices have 48 weeks.

It was the next best option to the one I wanted but couldn't get
Nicole P on Jul 21, 2016
After searching and looking at samples, this planner looks as if it will fit my needs for year round homeschool planning. I like that I can fill in the calendar dates, as opposed to it being a specific yearly (2016-2017) planner.
Rodney S on Jul 15, 2016
I have used this planner for the last 2 years and love it.

Wanted to be ultra-prepared for the school year but found that this was a little too structured for me. I will probably use it in the future as it comes blank, so no money lost.

I need all the help I can get to stay organized! I have a calendar but I'm finding I need to separate the kids' school activities more completely.

What are the DIMENSIONS of the planner? I am only looking for a planner about the same size as your typical spiral-bound school notebook.
A shopper on Jul 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Page sizes are 8.5" x 11", spiral bound - so, roughly the same size as a typical spiral-bound school notebook.

I’ve used the Ultimate Homeschool Planner for several years now. I love this planner! It is so easy to keep track of my kids’ schedules/school work (I have 4 kids). I would recommend this planner to anyone who wants to be organized and not have to worry about any hassle. This planner is easy to use & I will continue getting it each year I homeschool.

Perfect for multiple kids
This is the fourth copy that I have purchased. Every year I look at others and I always return to this one. I love how easy it is to use for for multiple elementary kids. It has a yearly calendar and monthly calendars as well as space for weekly praises and encouragement.

Beautiful and Functional
The how-to guide in the front is amazing and gives great guidance on how to plan your school year following God's will for your family! It has examples of how to fill out the pages, and the open design concept is flexible to meet many different planning needs! I plan to purchase The Ultimate Homeschooling Guide next.

Great planner but...
I like this planner, it has plenty of space for my planning. However I wish they also had a secular version and it would be nice if they had the calendars filled out with dates. It is more cost effective for the company of course as what ever products were not sold can be sold the following year, but it gives more work to the consumer!
