    Hello!

    I know there are old threads about this, but I felt it was time for a new one!  What is y’alls favorite pen and paper homeschool planner?  I have used “A Simple Plan” from Mardel for years, but wanted to try something different.  I love the look of Anna Vance, but can’t justify the price for myself.  Any other ideas?

    Hi Jennifer.  SCM does not have an official recommendation for a paper and pen planner.  I, too, am a paper and pen kind off Momma (each kid has their own color in my planner!!) and have personal favorites.   The Practical Planner by Susan Chrisman is a great planner for the CM minded Momma.

    Some years I utilize the simple Blue Sky Teacher Planner.  It provides me with the room to label 9 subjects when needed.

    I created this one and have been using it for years. The format works so well for me and my family and I wanted to share it with others.
    I will have an updated version available late spring/early summer.

    Paper is a must here! The internet is too unweildly and distracting. I have used a few different ones as well as made my own, but I just found this one from Raising Little Shoots. It looks about perfect and I’m going to use it next year. https://raisinglittleshoots.com/charlotte-mason-homeschool-planner/

    I also have the planning book and dvd from SCM. It is great for planning the whole year so it goes smoothly.

    I have been using the Softbound Erin Condren LifePlanner 8×10 in the horizonal layout. It’s been awesome for the price and quality.

    For a free paper planner that can be created based on what we are studying, I use the academic planner forms and calendar from Homeschool Classifieds. We’ve used these for a few years now.

    I miss the planners SCM use to make. Wish they would start making them again! However, I found a CM heirloom planner at a homeschool convention this year. It’s by Jeannie Fulbright the author of the elementary apologia science series. It’s really wonderful! Funny thing was I met her and was talking to her about the planners and didn’t even know it was her or who she was. 🤣. I got the undated planner because with special Ed children school doesn’t always happen everyday it every month so we can pick and choose what month comes next and don’t have to use it in “order”.

    Blue Sky weekly & monthly planner. Affordable, simple layout, large daily boxes, several sheets of note paper at the back. 🙂

    I’ve also enjoyed using the “Teacher’s Planner” inserts in my Juniper Grove Journal.

    Oops. Forgot to say it takes 4 inserts for me to have daily plans for 36 weeks.

    Favorite planning tip:  pencil!

    Thank you all for the love regarding our journal calendars!  We wanted to be able to provide our small team with the ability to work on more resources so the difficult decision was made to suspend the creation of the journal calendars.

    While this is not an official SCM recommendation, I will second the recommendation for Jeannie Fullbright’s new planners.  I was provided with one at a convention this year and they are beautiful!  I can’t wait to utilize it this next school year as I will be in need of a year of peace and beauty.  That said, I will only be scheduling 2 kiddos in this planner.  If I needed to write the schedule for all 4 children, space may be a bit tight.

    I have successfully utilized the Blue Sky Teacher’s planners for several years.  Another paper planner that I love to recommend is The Practical Planner for Home Education by Susan Chrisman.  This planner is written for the CM teacher.
