How Will I Use The Planner?
Since this planner starts in July, I haven’t begun to fill in the calendar just yet. However, I have started using the Curriculum Planning pages to plan out what curriculums I will use for the school year. I like how it breaks down the subject, curriculum, vendor, grade level, price, and contact information. This will allow me to keep track of everything I’m using which will help me plan out each homeschooling week for each of my kids.
Once the curriculum is planned out, I will then start filling in my week-by-week plan on the weekly planner for the school year. We plan our homeschool year on a year-round schedule and this planner is so perfect for year-round homeschoolers!
Hey, Mama! Devotional
One of the greatest parts of this planner is the devotional pages sprinkled throughout it. Because let’s face it. Homeschooling can be stressful and daunting at times. It’s nice to have encouragement throughout the year to help keep you focused.
I like how before each month, the devotional is there as a little pick-me-up of encouragement. I also like how it’s right next to the notes page so if you find something specifically beneficial from the devotional, you can write it down right there before you started making notes for the month.
How Much Does The Planner Cost?
This planner is reasonably priced at $29 and it is currently on sale for $22! As of today, the Hey, Mama! Homeschool Planner for 2019/20 Year is 98% sold out of this print run. The Old Schoolhouse® does not plan on printing any more until next year. So I highly recommend that you purchase yours ASAP before they sell out!
My Thoughts On Hey, Mama! Homeschool Planner
I’ve used several school planners and/or teacher planners in both my teaching career and with homeschooling. The ones I used for homeschooling were geared towards public school teachers because I could never find planners dedicated to homeschoolers. Said planners always left me frustrated and having to add things to it to fit my homeschool needs. The Hey, Mama! Homeschool Planner is amazing! It’s well made, affordable, and has everything I need to effectively keep me focused and organized. I am going to get a lot of use out of it for the school year and I highly recommend this planner to help keep your homeschool year organized!
