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

It's hard to find a planner that gives the appropriate space for planning teaching days in a meaningful way, so I almost made my own but wanted it bound. This one scares me a little because it has so many extras I fear it may stress me out, thinking I'll have to use it all. But there were parts I really like, such as places to reflect on child's progress, and I think this one has a meal planning part, which I should do so supper doesn't surprise me every day! I'm hopeful it will work well!

I love this planner most out of all the different ones I tried. You fill in the dates, and that's what I like about it.
Angelia W on Sep 13, 2021
I have used this planner for several years and appreciate the way it is laid out. I can use it for my everyday planner and my homeschool planner as well. It's also nice to use as a journal. At the end of the year I have a record book filled with everything I have done including memories. Highly recommend!

I bought this planner last year and loved it! It was super helpful.
Tara K on Jul 19, 2021

Amy S on May 19, 2021
I bought this last year to help myself get organized for my first year of school & I'm back for year 2! This planner has everything! Even spots to record spiritual progress, family goals, etc... this will serve as a keepsake for years to come as well!
Jacie F on May 1, 2021
I have used Debra Bell's planner for 2 years and love the versatility of it. It has enough space to not only plan my homeschool week for 4 kids but also to make notes and keep records of grades.
Steven B on Mar 28, 2021
I have used this planner in the past and am tired of trying to make a spiral notebook work. I am excited to get this and have everything organized again.

Rachel O on Oct 17, 2020
I use this planner every year.
Irene H on Aug 24, 2020
This planner changed my life. She gives excellent advice on how to plan for the year and for life! I was never very good at planning and every year since i've used this planner, I've gotten better and better at organizing not just my homeschool schedule, but our yearly home calendar and making it a priority to schedule in the "important things".
Jessica O on Aug 12, 2020
Hoping it works well for managing 3 students this year.
User on Aug 11, 2020
It looks nice and seems to have all the features I need.
Emmanuelle H on Jul 30, 2020
I have used this planner for many years and love it. It is "my brain" that i carry wherever I go and use to manage all our family does. I love the colors and that it is undated. No school for a week? no blank pages! I write in the dates each week as I prepare for the week ahead. I also love the quotes.
AnnMarie T on Jul 29, 2020
Referred by a friend. Also, I like the Christian aspect and the space to reflect and include plans to work on challenges you are currently experiencing.
Natalie S on Jul 24, 2020
It was reasonably priced and has good organization.
patrick h on Jul 17, 2020
I've used Debra Bell's planner for several years and really like them! Every year I choose a different color design. :) There is room to write assignments for up to six students (although I use it for myself and my piano studio as well now that my high schoolers have their own!). Lots of great info, monthly and weekly planning, resources, inspirational quotes, room to write down goals and Bible verses, and more!
Rosalee on Jul 9, 2020
Looks like it might be a help.
Chris R on Jul 1, 2020
I needed something that would work for 6 kids, and I love purple.
NAArah on Jun 17, 2020
I love the flexibility of this planner. It has been my go-to planner for several years now and is so helpful. It really helps keep me on track as well as confirm the productivity in our homeschool and life.
Amybeth B on Jun 3, 2020
I chose this planner because I wanted a new homeschool planner, one that could keep track of all four of my kids' needs, that would help me organize how I want next year to go. It looks promising.
User on May 3, 2020
I have loved using this planner for 3 years now. Fits all my needs. Flexible and intuitive.
Susan C on Aug 23, 2019
Have wanted to try this planner as we have 2 children in homeschool this year and a baby so I need to be extra organized!
Laura B on Aug 20, 2019
My wife loves these colors and was looking for a planner for homeschooling.
Michael L on Aug 17, 2019
I wanted a thorough planner to help me with the lesson planning.
Anna L on Aug 7, 2019

Sarah T on Jul 29, 2019
One of my favorite planners
User on Jul 1, 2019
I have been using this planner for the past three years and find it indispensable. It allows you to plan everything and even make special notes. I love the encouraging words, also. If I didn't know that my fellow homeschool moms already have their own scheduling system, then I would gift each one of them a Debra Bell!
User on Jul 1, 2019
This is my second time use the Ultimate Homeschool Planner. I love the pages at the beginning that help get my perspective right before the year begins. Also, I like the goals for each child page and the space to write down small successes (can't remember Debra Bell's exact wording for this). My hope is that this will be a special gift to my future self.
Elizabeth F on Jun 13, 2019
I used this planner last year and loved it.
Jennifer G on Apr 16, 2019
This is such a beautiful planner! Not only does it have ample space for multiple children, but it also helps you to keep your heart and homeschool focused on the Lord. I like that it gives me areas to chart goals and prayer needs, and then follows up with areas to record memories and where you have seen God's grace. Sometimes mom just needs a place to put down all those thoughts and concerns that are flying around in her head, and this seems that a great tool for that!
Teresa H on Sep 28, 2018
I'm homeschooling 6 kids, and I have bought a copy of this planner for the last several school years. It is the only one I've found that is flexible enough to use with 6 students. I love the structured pages that still give me the complete freedom to fill it out the way that best fits our needs.
Josie A on Aug 31, 2018
I had this planner one other year, and really loved it. Went with something cheaper for a few years and really missed all the extras this one has. Had pockets on both sides for important papers, pages to be dated and numbered as you like, weekly planning pages for getting things organized before start each week and lots more.
Laura S on Aug 14, 2018
I have found the Ultimate Homeschool Planner to be the best planner for my family of 5 children. I am able to plan and organize lessons, appts., and daily activities all in one place with the added benefit of uplifting weekly devotionals to help keep me on track.
Denise D on Jul 24, 2018
Wanted to use a planner from a seasoned homeschool mom.
Steven J on Jul 11, 2018
I have friends who love this planner, so I decided to try it.
Kelly S on Jul 6, 2018

Is this one spiral-bound?
Y E on Jun 29, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Yes. All of these planners are spiral bound. I am on my third style/color and they are all spiral.

Flexibility in organization!
I've used this planner for 4 years running. It is excellent in quality and layout. The possibilities are endless, as you fill in your own calendar dates and subject / time tables. The weekly journaling space is awesome, too. Even with daily use, this planner holds up well.

I always hated the idea of splurging on a planner, but with 3 kids, I was getting frustrated trying to make a cheaper one work. This planner has plenty of space to keep track of not only the kiddos, but yourself and also family events. I like the pages for goal planning, record keeping, and even a place to plan what your studying in the Word and praying about. Well worth the money!
