This is the online homeschool planner I've been looking and longing for! It needs to be easy to set up--check! It needs to be flexible for those days school doesn't happen--check! It needs to let me set it up the way I do school, not assuming everyone uses textbooks--check! It needs to have an indicator that we at least started that project--check! If I could remember everything I was excited about this might go on too long. Suffice it to say, if you haven't been completely satisfied with the other online planners you've tried... you may have j...(more)

Homeschool Planet was the school and home management tool I was looking for. It provides a central hub for all my students' assignments, as well as their chores! The program provides great flexibility for those times when illness or unexpected learning opportunities arise, and even does the math and record keeping for me when I'm entering grades. My highschooler likes the assignment list that it can email to her. We're all staying much more on track! (The on-screen widgets are another plus; love the weather, shopping lists, and daily verse!) I ...(more)

I'm setting up Homeschool Planet for this coming school year, so my daughter hasn't yet used it. But so far I LOVE that I can combine very specific class schedules and assignments into the same calendar that I can keep track of every other appointment for every other person in my family as well as multiple to-do lists. I also like that I can access it on multiple devices away from home. This is the ultimate calendar for the color coded perfectionist like myself! Of course, it would also be great for non-color-coded perfectionists :)

As a whole famy unit we have enjoyed using this planner, my husband can check his email on a daily basis to find out what the kids are learning and can follow up with them a lot easier I can plan all our work and projects and print it out for everyone... No more writing and planning in 3 different planners ! I enjoy the txt feature and the reminder of unfinished work with the ability to dismiss move or add to another day. My kids like seeing all their work printed out and being able to check off as they go! I have shared this information and ...(more)

After using this planning tool last fall for a month, I was impressed by all the options and my daughter loved it. However, I'm a paper & pen kind of person and was convinced I could find something I liked as well in hard copy. After several months of searching and trial and error, I came back and purchased Homeschool Planet with a huge sigh of relief. It allows us to track our days, classes, assignments without making us feel like a slave to our schedule. It's easy to move assignments to different days or shift all our assignments with a c...(more)

I have really enjoyed using Homeschool Planet. I like that I can print the weekly schedule. My kids like the fact that they can pull it up on their iPads and keep track of their work. It has been a big help in planning my week and even ahead some. I wish I would have purchased sooner.

I Love Homeschool Planet!! I have been using a different program to plan and organize my homeschooling for years and have found Homeschool Planet to be far more effective and efficient. My kids love how the daily schedule is emailed to them every day and I love how easy it is to accommodate each student's scheduling needs. I will continue to use Homeschool Planet for as long as I am homeschooling. I would recommend this product to every homeschool family!! Thank you for creating just what this busy homeschool mom needed!!!

I really like Homeschool-Planet. It's easy and I can keep track of everything in one place!

We finally have a planner that's just right for our homeschooler family. It covers all of our needs and it's so easy to use! It's definitely a keeper.

I came across this almost a month ago. I had tried an online planner before and thought I was going to love it but it was such a headache and I hated it.

Not only am I homeschooling but I watch my new grandson in the mornings, work on our family business, and I've just started working in the evening at a local college and that doesn't count all the things I do at church and helping with my brother who is not well. I was starting to feel a bit overwhelmed and I really put this in prayer about having something to keep everything on track for ...(more)
