Review of the 2013/14 Schoolhouse Planner and a GIVEAWAY

I am super excited to review and offer a giveaway of the brand new 2013/2014 Schoolhouse Planner.


I must admit that over the years, I've gradually begun to keep our school records digitally. I've moved away from a physical planner. But when I received a free membership to the Schoolhouse Teacher's site because of my Schoolhouse Review Crew membership, I found a planner that I really like.

The Schoolhouse Planner has some really great features that I like even though I like my digital record keeping. It is unlike any planner you've ever seen. And it is sooo much more than just a planner.

1. There are different planners for different needs. There is a main planner that includes homemaking and homeschooling forms. There is a planner for kids with special needs. And there are student planners for primary, intermediate, and high school students.



2. These planners include sooo much more than just planning pages. In the main planner there are:
     *Calendars of all sorts- These can be filled in on the PDF file and then printed out.
     * A whole section of articles written by veteran homeschoolers and educators.
     * Forms to list curriculum, field trips, evaluations- Again, all of these can be typed into and saved or printed.
     * All types of scheduling forms to help you plan your days in the way that suits your family best
     * A unit study planning guide if you enjoy using unit studies in your homeschool
     * Household forms for meal planning, chore planning, Bible study, and more
     And the planner comes with a "Start Here" page that helps you see all this planner can do.

3. The planners- as I've mentioned before- can be typed into. And then they can be saved or printed with your typed info. I've used this feature to type weekly assignments into the weekly sheet and then save separate sheets for each child.

4. The "Must Know" sheets- I absolutely love this section. This section which is in the main planner and in the individual students planners- tailored more to the specific ages- gives page after page of "common knowledge information" such as geography information, multiplication tables, the water cycle, parts of speech, U.S. Presidents, and much more. I printed off a selection of these for each kid and made a "Book of Things to Know" for each child to use as a reference book.



5. The student planners have all sorts of forms and record keeping pages and are meant to be used by the student. They can be used to teach students how to plan and record and work independently.


You can purchase a Schoolhouse Planner here. (This is NOT an affiliate link.)

The other way to have access to ALL of these planners is to purchase a membership to Schoolhouse Teachers. I reviewed this site earlier in the year, and you can read my review here. I have a membership because of my place on the TOS Review Crew, and I can say - without a doubt- that this is an amazing resource and well worth the membership cost. It is $3 for the first month and $12.95 per month after that.
