Online Homeschool Planner
Having the perfect planner is a must for homeschool moms. How about one you can tailor to your family -- even to each person in your family?
I was given one year free access to Homeschool Planet and was compensated in exchange for this honest review. All opinions are my own.
Homeschool Planet is the ideal planner for busy moms, and especially for moms who like to plan ahead. Really, what mom isn't busy?!
- Customize Student assignments
- Attendance Records
- Projects - Detail and Break Down

Add your student's assignments in (whether shared or separate) and they will fill in the days accordingly. You can plan the whole year, or just a week or month at a time. It's easy to move things around if something changes.
Includes Widget Options
- Daily Scripture Verse (Love!)
- Daily To-Do List
- Shopping List (with the ability to email and print. Score!)
- Daily Quote
- And More!
I love how this planner allows the ability for the students to access their own assignments through a login process. It helps them own responsibility for their own work by finding out what they need to do and checking it off.
At this time I am using this tool just for myself to dump my own brain. BUT, thank goodness for the print button! I can print out their individual assignment sheets each week, and they can check off their assignments as they do them.
Let Homeschool Planet plan the big picture of your school year. You can plan out which days you're in session and which days you're off for holidays and/or vacations. We usually take a day off for birthdays. So I check those off our school days so they aren't included when I add my children's assignments in each week or each month.
- Organize Attendance and Class Hours
We school year-round, though through the summer the lessons are a little lighter. But as you can see from the chart below, school has been in session all summer! Because lessons are light, we can complete them before lunch and our schedule isn't as rigid.
Planning ahead, I gave us a week off for Christmas in December. Depending on how well the weeks and months go leading up to it, I may give us a second week.
Overall, this is a pretty powerful tool for homeschool parents! It's extremely customizable, accessible, and always editable. You can easily add all the assignments in, and still shift them around if something in your year changes.
Once you select your assignment, you can then select a new date and it will change either just that assignment or shift the whole schedule to compensate. For example, if there's a sick day you weren't planning on, you can adjust the schedule accordingly.
You can also print it out if you don't want to (or can't) constantly be getting back on the computer to check things off. Perfectly acceptable!
So, these are a few of my favorite things. But I encourage you to check it out for yourself. If you're in need of a place to keep records and assignments and plan out your year, Homeschool Planet is definitely that place. You can get a 30-Day trial FREE.
