Most of you don’t know this about me, but I’m a homeschooling mom. I have homeschooled my oldest since she was in 1st grade. She graduates at the end of this school year and I couldn’t be more proud! We’ve been through ups and downs and it’s bittersweet to see the end of this road I’ve traveled with her as I move into a new role of a support person instead of her main teacher. She’ll be taking classes up at the public school this year and then, the world! I also homeschool my other two children who are in 10th grade and 6th grade, so I have more years left of the journey unless something changes.
With that in mind, I wanted to offer a freebie to my homeschool/teacher friends. This is certainly not all inclusive, however, I tried to think of things I would actually need for the upcoming year and these planner sheets came to mind. I’m hoping you’ll find them helpful too.
Even if you don’t homeschool, there are some agenda sheets and monthly calendars that you can use for the upcoming year. You don’t have to be a teacher to use them! I use them for my blog sometimes and make another set for school.
- Instructions to understand how I organized the sheets
- Cover Sheets – Choose from 3 types: Text Only, Text & Blue Background, Text & Graphic (I hope to create some more cover sheets in the future depending on need)
- Basic Sheets – Homeschool rules, quotes, year at a glance, holidays, and goals at a glance
- Student Records – grades, progress sheets, monthly goals, reading log, volunteer log, and course of study
- Monthly sheets – August 2017 – July 2018 calendars, lesson plans, chore charts, expenses, shopping list, daily agenda, family calendars, weekly agenda, and to do lists

- For personal/homeschool use only. Do not resell or repackage. Please don’t share this as is, but send your friends over here to download. I’ve worked really hard to make this and hope you can respect that.
- Printing Tips: I have set this up to print on front and back pages to save paper and the blank pages in the set are intentional. Make sure you set your printer up to print front and back and use the “fit to page” or “fit” feature in the settings so the pages fit on each page. The landscape pages have been turned so you can print them the long way. If you have questions about this, please let me know.
- Although I’ve set up pages in a set, feel free to customize your own planner however you wish. You may need more copies of some pages, or you may find you don’t like some of the pages. That’s totally fine. Use them however you feel will work for your own uses. I’ve included the set, but also the individual pages which you can print whenever you need to.
Share the Love
I spent HOURS on this so I hope you find this useful. If you use this, please spread the word. I’d love for other families to get in on the free stuff! To get these, you need to subscribe. They are offered on my freebies page.
If you wouldn’t mind letting me know what you think in the comments, that would be helpful as well. I’d like to make this a great homeschooling or teaching resource for anyone using it.
If you don’t homeschool, I’m also interested in knowing if you use printable planner sheets. Or do you just buy them at the store? Or are you an electronics only person? I tend to love a little of both. I definitely love my iPhone calendar and reminder apps that I can use on my phone, but I love the actual planning to be done on paper where I can organize things in my head and cement them by writing them on paper. I’ve purchased planners at the store for ease of use, but find most of them lacking what I need, so I decided to make my own. It’s more printing on my end, but I can print more or less pages as needed and can create more sets for my kids as well.
