Are you looking for a new planner to plan all that wonderful curriculum that you bought either at your local homeschool convention or somewhere else? The Hey Mama! Print Schoolhouse Planner 2016-2017 from The Old Schoolhouse is hot off the press and I had the opportunity to review it!
I received the print edition of The Hey Mama! Print Schoolhouse Planner 2016-2017 and the planner is based on the traditional school planners that begin in July and end the following June. As a momma of five I think this planner is great! It is hard to find a planner that can accommodate five children’s school schedule.
There are 12 dated monthly calendars and lined pages for every months to make notes. Every day has plenty of space to record field trips, appointments, etc. On the left side of the calendar there is space for additional notes.
The planner has 36 blank weekly planning pages. I love that they are blank so I can set it up to fit our family! The downside however is that there are only 36 weekly planning pages. It is great for a family that follows the traditional school schedule of 36 weeks. For a family, like mine, that homeschools year round there are not enough weekly planning pages. I am still deciding on how to use the planning pages. I am leaning towards writing the days of the week across the top and the subjects down the side. There is enough space for me to record what the three oldest have completed every day together on each subject space.
There are five of each of the following pages; monthly goals, semester goals, yearly goals, attendance charts, book logs, and curriculum planning sheets. The goals on all of the goal pages are for educational, spiritual, physical, personal talents, life skills, financial, and relational goals. There is plenty of space to write goals but if your monthly goals change frequently, there may not be enough space for all of the changes depending on how many children you have. For semester goals you may need to divide the blocks for first and second semester goals. The attendance charts are for an 180 day school year. The book log includes spaces to record the title, author, and date completed. The curriculum planning pages includes information to record the subject, grade level, curriculum name, price, vendor, and contact information.
Following the above pages there is a homeschooling contact list page where you can write down the name, address, phone number, and email of other homeschooler.
Other pages that The Old Schoolhouse included in the Hey Mama! Schoolhouse Planner 2016-2017 are 36 General Writing Prompts, Story Starters, The Thirteen Colonies by Date, Timeline of Inventions, U.S. Presidents and Their Wives, Branches of Federal, State and Local Governments, United States and Capitals, Creating an Academic Transcript, one Academic Transcript page for high school, one Checklist and Skills Learned page, and one Other Courses page.
For larger families, year round homeschoolers, and those who would like to customize their planner there is a digital edition of the Hey Mama! Schoolhouse Planner 2016-17 available as well.
One thing that I absolutely loved was that throughout the planner there are encouraging letters, Bible verses, and fun facts to read throughout the year.
