I received a copy of this to evaluate. I am so glad that I did.

I have been homeschooling for about 15 years. Homeschooling is rewarding, amazing, and terrifying. The amount of chaos that goes with it is truly intimidating. This is what makes homeschool moms a great target market for planners. The homeschool planner market is chock full of gorgeous planners with zillions of lovely pages to use for journaling, book lists, inspiration, cute quotes, daily plans, long term plans, short term plans and every other possible page you can think of. Keeping up the planners can be a full time job

This planner doesn't have that. This is about as straight forward a record book as you could find. It is for use by your student. There is one page for basic identification and grade information. There is one page to list the general syllabus for each course. There is one page to list the texts used for each subject. And then, there are 180 pages designed to record all your academic activities for each day. Every possible category is listed in a way that encourages you to look not just at typical assigned seatwork but also at activities and field trips. One page for one day. There is nothing else to this book. I wouldn't really want anything else except perhaps space for a reading record.

If you want a beautiful planner with inspirational quotes and lots of sections keep looking. If you want a simple straight forward planner that will help with excellent record keeping by you and your student- get this one. Heck, at under 6 bucks it isn't worth the trouble to make your own.

I have just cancelled my (backordered) order for much more expensive planners for my kids and ordered 4 more of The Complete Homeschool Planner and Journal. Simple is great.

As a first year homeschooling mom I found myself overwhelmed when it came to finding the "right" planner/log book for my children. Many of the available ready to use planners contain too many bible verses and "inspirational" quotes for our family dynamic. I did not want cute little quotes or biblical reminders, just a straight forward log book. This is exactly that. I do wish there was a just a little more room for entries, I would have rated this 5 stars had there been perhaps three lines, as opposed to two. I could have done this as a word document and saved a little bit of money, but really it saved me time and that is more important, in my opinion. keeping up with tasks and subjects could not be any easier with this type of planners... jot out what you've done next to each subject and then tally your daily total at the top. I had previously spent over fifty dollars on two separate "lesson plan" planners only to find myself alarmed and dismayed when I realized that they were nothing more than glorified calendars made to go into a three ring binder. this is what works for us.

I gave this product two stars because it might fit someone's purposes. However I would not recommend. Each day has one page and two lines per subject (maybe 10 subjects in all). Not enough space to plan, make notes, or really hash anything out - perhaps only to reference activities you want to try that are explained in further detail elsewhere.

This is a really good book for homeschoolers. It is a bit much for elementary age students, but would be great for middle and high schoolers. The downside? It's 8 x 10 instead of standard notebook size which makes the lines to write on really close together. If you have very small and neat handwriting it would probably be fine.

This inexpensive planner has worked perfectly for us this year. As of this writing (1-10-13) the "Click to Look Inside!" shows you exactly what's in this book. Nothing more. Simplicity is what attracted me to this planner. Other planners I looked at had several intro pages for telling me why homeschooling is a good thing or how to better organize my house or plan my whole day. I just wanted a straight forward planner.

I am only homeschooling one child this year so there is more than enough room for everything I need to write down. You could certainly print this stuff from another site and create your own book. But, this planner is less than six dollars and your time is worth more than that. It might not be cost effective if you homeschool many children as I can see you would probably need a planner for each child.

All in all, I really like this planner and will buy another one next year. The only improvement I would love to see is spiral binding. But, normal binding is certainly not a deal breaker.

This is a great planner for logging all the home school work in a day for 180 days. There are two lines each subject, 20 subjects for each day, to write on. Two lines is not nearly enough to write out a detailed descriptions of things done in a subject. Then again if you are homeschooling multiple children the short and sweet version is probably the best way to go. I've been crossing out some subjects in the book to make way for books read during the day, because their is no book log. All-in-all it's getting the job done, at a good price. I think I will be purchasing two of these planners again next year.

I've been through several planners in my 7 years of homeschooling. Most are overpriced and have more than I need. Don't get me wrong - I like inspirational quotes, bible verses, menu planners, grocery lists, book lists, touching anecdotes, address books and kitchen sinks; however, I don't need them in my planners. I just need, well, a *planner*. I had given up and made my own this year out of a three-ring binder and my own printed sheets; however, it was a lot of work and it takes up a lot of space. I found these, liked what I saw, and ordered two. (One for each of my older kids. The toddler doesn't need one yet.) The price is right and there's enough room to write a bit about each day's lessons. Period. If you're a minimalist and/or pragmatist, this is the planner for you. :-)

My only one teensy little issue? I wish this were in a spiral binding. It's not a deal breaker, though, so still a 5-star rating.

I love this "planner", but don't use it as a planner. I divide each page in two with a pencil line as I have two students, and then record what each one did each day. The various headings help me to remember things we did that are not regular school subjects, but greatly contribute to education, like chores, for example. I'll be ordering another on for the upcoming school year.

I tried to do it simply like this book has laid out but I needed more detail so I went with Donna young.

This is very plain. Next time I will order a journal with more detail inside. All the pages are the same and ideal for someone else besides homeschool instructors.
