TOS Review ~ Hey Mama! Print Schoolhouse Planner

Hey Mama! Schoolhouse Planner 2016-2017 Review
This is one of my favorite times of the homeschooling year. It is time to plan all the great things I want to do with my kids next year and what better thing to plan with than the new Hey Mama! Print Schoolhouse Planner 2016-2017 from The Old Schoolhouse.
Hey Mama! Schoolhouse Planner 2016-2017 Review
I have always been loyal to paper planners. I like to carry them around with me everywhere and generally have them handy. This Hey Mama! Schoolhouse Planner is just perfect for homeschoolers. It is a soft cover spiral bound 9 in x 11 in book. From the very first page, it is filled with encouragement for the homeschool mama. 

What Is In It ~ 
  • Calendars for 2016, 2017, and 2018
  • Monthly calendars with nice big squares to write down activities
  • A note page at the beginning of each monthly calendar
  • Weekly planners
  • Monthly goal sheets
  • Semester goal sheets
  • Yearly goal sheets
  • Attendance sheets for up to five children
  • Pages to record books read for the year
  • Curriculum planning sheets
  • Homeschool contact list
  • Extras pages on: story starters, general writing prompts, timeline of inventions, checklists and skills learned, creating an academic transcript and so much more.
Weekly Lesson Plan Pages ~ I want to talk about the lesson plan pages in more detail. These are the nuts and bolts of any planner, and it is most important to know how they are set up. This planner has room for seven subjects a day for five days a week. The subject header and day of the week header are highlighted. The squares are a sufficient size to record necessary information. There are 36 weeks to record the school year. That is based on most states requiring 180 days of school. 

Curriculum Planning Sheets ~ I am actively using these sheets right now. There are so many wonderful products out there. I don't know about you, but I am like a kid in a candy store when it comes to curriculum. I want it all! I tend to pull far more curriculum from my shelves for the next year than possibly can be used by any given child. The planning sheets are great because they help me stay on track and control my spending. Each block has a space for subject, curriculum, vendor, grade level, price and contact information. There are 35 blocks which is even enough for a curriculum addict like me. 

Yearly, Semester, and Monthly Goal Sheets ~ There are enough sheets in each category for five children. I love that there are yearly, semester and monthly goal sheets. I tend to write down tons of goals at the beginning of the year and lose sight of many of them as I get caught in the busyness of life. Each sheet has a separate space for educational, spiritual, physical, personal talents, life skills, financial, and relational goals. I love that at a glance I can see my children's goals and make sure that I am getting them into our days. 

I have used a large variety of planners over the years. I can't believe we will be starting year 17 of homeschooling in August! This is one of the nicest planners I have ever owned. It is exactly what I need. Check out the special deal on the Hey Mama! Print Schoolhouse Planner 2016-2017 below.
