I’ve rounded all the homeschool planner videos you need to make the biggest decision of your homeschool year. Okay okay, maybe choosing a planner isn’t the biggest decision, but it’s one of the most fun!
Read on to see some of the most popular name-brand homeschool planners.
Paper planning is a huge part of my life. My planners help me keep everyone and everything together on a daily basis.
I also just love picking out a pretty planner. One (or more haha) that I will love to sit down with every day.
Homeschool is no different. I’m excited to find a new homeschool planner that I love!
Note: This post is about printed paper planners.

Plans for a Homeschool Planner
This year, I’ve committed to planning a bit less. I love making plans, but with two little homeschoolers and a preschooler planning needs to be efficient and purposeful.
That means a couple things will be changing for me:
- Planning weekly rather than monthly or quarterly
- Using a homeschool planner to re-pace curriculum rather than trying to stick to pacing guides
- Being more purposeful with planning field trips, classes and outings
- Keeping a homeschool portfolio separately – My planner will be functional for laying out plans only, not a keepsake or a record of our work to turn in.
Popular Homeschool Planner Brands
If you’re part of the hobby planning world, these brands will look familiar. Many companies have homeschool and teacher planners available alongside their weekly/monthly planners.
Teacher Planner vs. Homeschool Planner
You will see a few differences between teacher and homeschool planners. The main pages are generally the same. You will see a difference in extra pages: field trip pages vs. class attendance trackers for example.
Most of the classroom teacher pages can be easily adjusted. You can pull pages out or slap a sticker on and write a different header. The important thing is the meat of the planner – the weekly layout. That’s what you’re going to be using most of the time.
Most Popular Homeschool Planners
Take a look inside some of the most popular homeschool planners. Check out the weekly layouts (some even have options) and the extra pages. Find what fits your homeschool and personal style. Above all, choose one that you will just love to use.
