[PRODUCT REVIEW] The Focused Homeschool Planners (for teacher and student)!

Y’all should know by now that I absolutely LOVE planners. I’m always posting pictures of my different journals and planners. . . and even still, I have managed to get my hands on another planner. What drew me to this planner is the word focus and that fact that this planner is made by a homeschooling mom who knows how important it is for not only our children to focus, but also us as the Teacher-Mom. 🙂

Let’s be honest, did we really go into homeschooling skipping and dancing through the fields like the Sound of Music? I may have been excited about the thought of homeschooling, but trust me when I say that I was nervous, not quite sure where to start, let alone how I was going to plan and organize my homeschool! Insert TONS of prayer and Pinterest pins!

Over the past several years, I have probably tried no less than two to three different planners per year. Yeah, I know… crazy, right?! So anytime I come across something that perks my ears and causes me to buy, subscribe, or sign up – I’m there! Well, in walks this new planner by a fellow homeschooling blogger friend – Stephanie Eidson, also known as The Multi Taskin’ Mom. She is the master behind my amazing new planner The Focused Homeschool Teacher’s Planner and The Focused Homeschool Student’s Planner!

When I told my son (10 year old 4th/5th grader) that he was going to have his very own planner, his eyes brightened up and he instantly became excited. You see, I’m always writing my sons plans on the board, or telling him verbally what he needs to accomplish for the day. Now, we are able to sit down and plan out his entire week together. It’s the next best thing to the workbox system (I’m still working my way up to that, LOL)! Can we say A PLUS (plus plus plus)?!?!

Now let’s dive into some perks of why I recommend The Focused Homeschool Teacher’s Planner:

The first, and most important section of this planner is the Student Focus Page. Using this page each month helps you see just where you need to focus your attention for the month. It allows you to see the growth that is taking place and help identify any weaknesses.

Planning: As you’d expect this planner is full of planning pages.

Monthly Planning: There are 3 different options for the monthly planning pages.

Weekly Planning: There are 3 options for the weekly planning. Each has an option for lined or unlined pages. Mix or match to create the perfect planning layout for your homeschooling style.

Quarterly Focus Pages: These are designed to help you keep up with goals and tasks based on the quarters of the school year.

Unity Study Pages: Plan your own unit study or track the progress of one that you have purchased with these pages. It makes it so much easier.

High School Plans: Now keeping up with the high school year has focus. There is a break down page to track the curriculum you use and the credits you gain from them. There is tracking for the entire 4 year plan, and more! Plus it is all in one place. No more piecing them together.

Extras: The extras in this planner are unlike those in any other planner. You’ll find –

  • Lesson mapping – for planning out how many lessons you should complete a day for the school year.
  • Spelling Lists – for you to write out each weeks list for reference.
  • Book Lists
  • Curriculum Wish List
  • Website and Password Log
  • Attendance Log with 2 date layouts and a blank date layout.
  • Field Trip Planner
  • Field Trip Log

Can we just say GENIUS!?

Now for a quick review of The Focused Homeschool Student’s Planner:

Just like the Teacher’s planner, the first, and most important section of this planner is the Student Focus Page. Using this page each month helps your student see just where their focus should be for the month. It allows them to see the growth that is taking place and help identify any weaknesses.

Monthly Planning: There are 3 different options for the monthly planning pages.

Weekly Planning: There are 4 options for the weekly planning. Each has an option for lined or unlined pages. Mix or match to create the perfect planning layout for your homeschooling style.

Quarterly Focus Pages: These are designed to help you keep up with goals and tasks based on the quarters of the school year.

Extras: These pages are optional pages that your student may want to use throughout the year to track other important aspects of their homeschool journey.

  • Website and Password Log
