A simple homeschool planner

I wanted a clean, simple homeschool planner without bells and whistles—except for the ones I needed. So, I made one. And you can have it, too.

Yes, I could do digital, like much of my life. But many times, paper just works better for me. It’s this case with planning, particularly school—I need to jot and scribbble and scratch.

Copy all you need for a school year and write on a new page each day, or you can laminate what you want and wipe clean with a dry erase marker. Whatever floats your boat.

You can print these babies and have them spiral-bound (my preference), or you can toss them in a binder and print more as you go. Or heck, frame your favorite pages and write each day on the glass.

A Simple Homeschool Planner from Tsh of Simple Mom. Nice, simple, clean PDFs, lots of uses!

I couldn’t include these maps in the download because they’re under a Creative Commons license, but thanks to the kind people at National Geographic, we can all have them—free!

I’ve packaged seven continental maps (medium resolution) for you to include in your planner, if that’s your cup of tea. Enjoy.
