The Well Planned Day 2011-2012
A Family Homeschool Planner by Rebecca Scarlata Keliher
I had been eyeballing this planner all summer. I would have purchased it on sooner, but I was apprehensive on spending the $24.95. Dumb I know.. I had a perfectly good planning system I have been using since the dawn of time. WHY use a different one?
I was in Mardel's during their 20% off back to school sale, and grabbed one. I am really glad I did.
My old one was off of the "A Garden Patch of Reproducible Homeschooling Planning & Educational Worksheets" CD. (check it out HERE) I bought the CD of this and would print off a "weekly planning log" for each child, then fill out their stuff on each page; then hole punch the pages and put in a notebook. This is and was a great way to do it.. but I would find those pages ALL OVER my house and car. My older children would take them out of the notebook.. and not put them back. **The Garden Patch CD has TONS of other reproducible papers that I still love and use.
Household Finances Household Duties page..
This is the spot where you an put a photo (I don't have one).. name, height, weight, strengths, challenges, goals, and what I love all the info on the books they are using.
I wish we could keep one of these. This year our homeschool day was turned around because I'm taking #4 to speech at the public school..
I love this Dinner Menu section. It's on every weekly plan page. I do all my planning on Sunday night. Whatever I have in the house, is what I plan for dinner this week.. if I don't have it, I put it on the shopping list.
This has perforated pages so that you can easily tear it out to take it with you.

I really like that this holds all of my kids stuff in one place. If I actually used it for EVERYTHING it would do that would be good too. If you are looking for a all in one planner… check this one out!
