I have searched high and low for the “perfect” homeschool planner. In my 8 year quest I thought having said planner would solve all of my homeschools woes (ranging from having a daily routine to getting my kids to just sit and do their school work).
Does this planner solve all of my home education problems?
No. It does not.
BUT what it does do is simplifies my curriculum and makes my planning much easier. Instead of writing out daily tasks for each subject or finding the online planning answer - I had space to write my curriculum choices and then what our daily tasks out be (for example:math, one lesson daily, practice multiplication tables).
For more detailed task assignments the student planner goes along quite well.
While all of that seems like a wonderful reason to purchase this planner . Here is one more: the quality is outstanding. From a thick front cover to beautifully designed pages. This planner did not disappoint. No pages tearing or rings coming loose. And there’s room for my personal goals as well as monthly goals for each child.
There is room enough for all of your kids (well for 6 of them).
But that is more than the typical planner allows for. I’m not schooling all 4 of mine at home, but I like that there’s space to plan for the 2 that are at school also.
For years I thought I had to plan out lessons 6 weeks at a time only to have to readjust as life happens. It was so eye-opening and appreciated when I came across the Not Consumed boot camp with this homeschool planner and I knew I had to have it. And it did not disappoint. I loved being able to look at my homeschooling year as a whole and plan long-term goals for my kids. Not to mention being able to reflect back on how last year went. This planner has everything to make the year successful and well-planned without being overwhelmed. Best thing of all, is its biblical foundation. Kim, thank you so much for this planner. It's been my favorite resource this year!!
I am thankful for this homeschool planner… I was unable to purchase it last school and so it was my main focus this year. To be able to have a guide on paper and a vision for why we homeschool has kept my head up high above the water when I start to fail. When I actually got my hands on it I dove in Head first to the planning and pulled my husband in too!!!
Having every part of scheduling for each child at our finger tips has been a joy. It even encouraged and excited my husband to teach Bible this year for our second grader!!!
Would highly recommend for homeschool families just getting started
If you're a homeschooling newbie and have no clue where to start, then this planner along with the 5 Day Homeschool Boot Camp Video is an answered prayer! I am currently homeschooling two of our children due to disagreement with the liberal agenda in our public schools. I had NO CLUE where to start or how to organize. Kim takes you step-by-step through the process and literally makes it idiot proof and so much less overwhelming! She literally walks you through the entire process and by the time you're done doing everything she asks, you will have it completely nailed down. It does require commitment to complete ALL the things, but is so totally worth it! Don't think about it. Buy the planner!
I love that there is so much to think about, especially for the faith of our children. Right now we are still getting to know 2 of our 4 children since they arrived in January and we adopted them in July. The two younger ones we afford in 2018 and 2020. With all the trauma-related behaviors I can hardly keep all four, ages 8, 8, 6 & 3 on task. We are doing kindergarten hands on learning for all the girls and our baby boy kind of listens while playing with sensory toys. I think this planner might be easier for me to use next year when I can actually focus on keeping up with it.
I have never been good at keeping a planner and always felt overwhelmed by completing every little space and line and box given. Thank you, thank you, thank you for creating this style and even more so for your boot camp to go along with it! It’s only a week into our school year and already I feel like we’ve accomplished so much with setting our goals and getting organized. It’s amazing and everyone needs one! Showing and sharing it with all my homeschool mommas!
After going through the boot camp to work on filling in the Organized Homeschool Planner, I feel so much more focused on the goal, recharged in what we are doing, and Ready to go. I do want to change some things in how we are going but we are on track to change it and get where we have been trying to go. Thank you @#NotConsumed!
What a great resource. I was looking for something to organize our school year with and put all my thoughts into an organized collection. And this was it! Found all the parts to be useful and actually enjoyed planning our school year.
I really love how this planner is so thought provoking and makes you think about so many things that otherwise might fall through the cracks. I also love the recording of memories. My only complaint really is the size of the print. I have to use a magnifier for some of it. Thank you so much for this resource!
