Last spring while perusing the aisles of my local homeschool convention, I came upon a very inviting looking vendor booth featuring a collection of helpful planning tools for homeschool families. Throughout the course of the weekend, I found myself drawn to that booth numerous times to flip through their beautifully illustrated planners and calendars. At the time, I was using another planning notebook, and couldn't rationalize making the switch. But, after watching me drool over these wonderfully organized schedule keepers for nearly two days, the Hubs snuck over to the booth and purchased The Well Planned Day, a homeschool-inspired annual planner and record keeper for the busy mom.
Uniquely created by homeschooling mother, Rebecca Keliher and her family, The Well Planned Day and its three companion calendars, Student Planner, On the Go and High School Planner are just one entity of the entire Home Educating Family brand. Over the last few years, this home grown ministry has expanded into an extensive home schooling enterprise with the publication of Home Educating Family Magazine, the release of both printed and digital planning guides, and the recent launch of a free on-line homeschool convention.
To kick off their April launch of the 2012-2013 version of The Well Planned Day, Home Educating Family Association would like to give one lucky reader of The Unlikely Homeschool their very own copy!
As I mentioned, these planners are not only beautifully illustrated, they come with a myriad of scheduling and record keeping tools designed by and for a busy homeschooling mother. I, personally, never stray too far from my very own copy, and would deem this well-ordered and efficient calendar one of my homeschool-mamma "must haves."
In addition to 12 monthly overview calendars and a year's worth of day-to-day planning pages for up to four children, The Well Planned Day includes:
- encouraging monthly articles from the Home Educating Family Magazine
- a family memories page
- a greeting card registry for easy birthday/anniversary tracking
- a monthly budget planner
- a weekly/monthly cleaning schedule
- an important/emergency contact page
- both a teacher and 4 student scheduler pages
- 4 class plans to assist in curriculum purchases/records
- semester progress and attendance record sheets
- a complete, six-page Holiday organizer insert
- monthly schedules for read-alouds, field trips, and bill payments
- and weekly schedules for dinner menus and non-homeschooling "to dos"
No more searching in four or five locations for needed information and records. The Well Planned Day is a complete homeschool organizer. For more information or to order one of the many other helpful tools provided by the Keliher family and team, be sure to visit them at Home Educating Family.
