Our newly updated FREE Booklet-Style Homeschool Planner is now available!
At the beginning of each semester, I often change up our homeschool planner a bit. The past couple of years, I have been using a booklet style homeschool planner because it’s a bit easier to carry around (and keep track of).
I print out the pages one-sided, fold them in half and use our Spiral coil binding machine to bind it together on the left-hand side.
This year, I added in new daily/weekly planning pages (in particular the Monday through Friday pages, but also some new checklist pages and grids for jotting down notes as I prepare):
We write in her subjects as well as music practice, outdoor time, art and her chore for the family. In the bottom section she jots in her weekly activities like her (online) Spanish and German classes (yes, she’s taking two foreign languages. It’s a long story, but just one of the funny things we homeschoolers can do!!) and soccer practice, etc.
I finished getting our homeschool planners done today! Hooray! Just wanted share this if you are still looking for a homeschool planning system!
You can grab this free booklet-style homeschool planner with the button below. It will be delivered by SendOwl (the delivery service I use).

Hope it’s helpful! ~Liesl
