The Old Schoolhouse Planner
Monday, September 1, 2008
I have been using a great new planner this year. Typically I do not actually use a planner because I have stuck pretty closely to using Sonlight and I can keep all my notes directly in the planner they provide. However, this year, my oldest two are doing mostly Switched on Schoolhouse, plus Apologia Science and Typing and some other subjects. My 10 year-old is doing Sonlight, Zoology 3 , Math U See , and my 6 year-old is doing a different Sonlight, Professor B math, and the Zoology 3 (kind of).
So... I needed a way to keep it all straight and have plans written down for each day!
What I did not expect was not only does this planner have a variety of pages to be used in planners, but also just about every form you can think of for School and Home! Instead of this simply being a school tool it is equally useful as a household tool. The forms are able to be filled out on the computer and then printed out. There is enough space in the boxes for the average person to fill in by hand, but it seems I can't ever write inside of the boxes. Additionally it is hard for me to write clearly enough for the younger kids to read clearly.
In fact, the only regret I have about this planner is I didn't get it at the end of last school year. If I had more time, I think I would have been able to use it more thoroughly.
Currently, I am still trying to figure out a few features with it. Also, I tried to download using Firefox after placing my order, but the planner did not like to be downloaded with Firefox.
I highly recommend this planner. Even if you are well underway this year it is worth checking out.
Hope you enjoy it as much as I do! Let me know what you think.
