2024 Free Printable Homeschool Planner

Free 2024 Spring Homeschool PlannerThis free 50-page printable includes planning pages for January through August 2024. Some planning pages include the monthly calendar; others include checklists and/or planning boxes. This is what we use to keep tabs on our weekly topics and upcoming events.

We use digital planners and reminders for a lot of things, but when it comes to keeping tabs on what we are doing on a daily or weekly basis for history, science, math and literature (etc.) we still use a paper planner that stays in our homeschool work area.

We use print out our homeschool planner and bind it with our TruBind spiral binding machine (affiliate link) [It works like a hole punch. I hand-twist the coils in place using (mostly) small (8mm) and medium (14mm) coils.]

Then we jot down our weekly/monthly plans and our homeschool to-do lists. We use the small calendars within the planner to keep tabs on future interruptions appointments and activities!

If you are New to our Website or quick way to find some of resources we have available be sure to visit this page for hints on navigating our website, finding other freebies, checking out some of the subjects/topics we covered in various grades, learning about our very hands-on homeschooling style and more!

History Units

Here are links to some of our Science BUNDLES:

Earth Science BUNDLE

Earth Science and Physical Science Units BUNDLEEarth Science Unit

Biology BUNDLE, for late elementary & middle school

We (I have 3 kids, each 2 years apart) started covering biology topics such as the organelles of the cell and basic botany (parts of a seed/flower, carnivorous plants) in elementary. We would usually do one or two biology units each year. We would come back to that topic every couple of years and go into more depth. Each time we covered a unit, I added in new materials to our packets, so our units are great for homeschooling families with kids of different ages. We even used of this material for biology in high school.

Big Animal BUNDLE, for early elementary

My kids loved studying animals. We did a lot of activities over the years (and I kept adding to the packets I created. For example, the Animal Packet covers basic animal classification, animal characteristics, body coverings: feathers, fur, scales or skin, vertebrate groups, invertebrate groups, domesticated vs. wild animals, animals and their tracks, nocturnal vs diurnal animals, animal homes and shelters and more!

The Big Animal BUNDLE includes 11 packets.   1) Animal Unit, 2) World Animals Packet, 3) Rainforest Packet, 4) Life Cycles Packet, 5) Winter Packet – plus several mini units 6) the Cicadas Packet and 7) the Chameleon Packet. 8) the Wolves Mini-Unit 9) Australia Unit 10) Dinosaur Unit 11) Mittens Unit (These packets are also sold separately!)

Chemistry Bundle

This chemistry page will tell you more about each of these units. Again, we covered a chemistry topic most every year, reviewing many of these topics every couple of years (and/or going into more depth each time). We did most of these units in upper elementary and middle school (though I think my youngest was in early elementary when we did the states of matter unit).

Chemistry BUNDLE Packets

Human Body BUNDLE 

Each year we would study a new human body system. Some of the units we covered included the skeletal system, muscular system, digestive system, circulatory system, nervous system, endocrine system and more!  I have three kids, each two years apart.  We would do our units together so we often did a lot of hands-on activities (for my youngest). We did these units again a few years later and would go into more depth as my kids got older (and then I would update and add to the packet). For that reason, our human body system materials is great for homeschooling families and can be used with a range of ages. System Unit - Worksheets Lapbook Activities and More
