It is that time of year again where homeschooling families are starting to plan for next year. In order to keep everything organize the first purchase made is usually a planner. With the amount available, the choice can be overwhelming. Sara over at Classically Homeschooling has put together a list of 7 great planners for every homeschooling family.

Have you picked out your homeschool planner for the 2020-2021 school year? It’s planning season again and time to find the best homeschool planners to use!


Some of these planners are printed and shipped to you, while others are digital downloads that you can print. Some planners are expensive and have all sorts of whistles and bells. Other planners are free and are able to be customized to fit your specific needs.

Take your pick. These are six of my favorite planners. And in the last 18 years of homeschooling, I’ve tested quite a few!


The Homeschool and Day Planner is the dated planner I created and use.

There are dated monthly pages and dated weekly pages. Each weekly page spread is immediately followed by that week’s homeschool planning pages. Personally, I keep a paper clip to mark my spot so I can easily flip between my weekly homeschool plans and my weekly appointments and to-do list.

There are lined note pages throughout the planner. You can use these for brain dumps as I do, monthly to-do lists, books to read, books read, or simply an easy spot to jot a quick note to yourself.

In addition, the Homeschool and Day Planner includes pages to plan your homeschool year! I don’t know about you, but I’ve been caught at the library and needed to know what topics a child would cover. Having my homeschool plans on my has saved my bacon more than once!

You’ll find samples of the Homeschool & Day Planner in my free resource library for subscribers!


The Weekly Homeschool Planner is not dated. And it’s an editable, and printable e-book. This means you can edit the pdf document to include months, subjects, lesson plans, and more.

Then you print it up for the year and can either keep it in a 3-ring binder or take it to be spiral bound.

There are many handy pages, such as a page to track what the legal requirements for your state are. The weekly pages are in grid form with a journal section able to be placed across from it.

I’m falling in love with the format. I have the grid to track individual assignments, but the journal to note preschool plans, needed discussions, and points I want to remember.
