Love the daily and weekly e-mailed schedules!
Cara, Co-op Member
I love this planner! I use it for my self as well for my high schooler who can go in and get his assignments every morning. It has been very easy to move things around and change lessons! I also can access from my phone. I also really appreciate the text or email reminder messages that I can send to my self or my kids. This planner solved alot of my concerns as to how to set up lesson plans that my son could access without wasting time rewriting everything!
Jennifer C, Co-op Member
I have been looking for something like this for a very long time! Every year I search for just the right planner to use in homeschooling. Finally, I've found it! Every weekend I sit down and make a list of assignments and chores for each of my children. Each time I use it, I find another feature that enhances my use. Setting up profiles and entering subjects, etc. can seem time consuming, but it is SO worth it. I can have schedules emailed to me or each of my children, or I can print them out individually -whatever works for us. My kids ...(more)

I am really enjoying it. I am still having to learn how to navigate it though. It is helping as I have seven kids homeshooling and need a central place to keep this sort of thing. I also like that my older kids receive an email right to their inbox every day about their work and I am looking forward to using hte chore aspect of it.

I tried 3 different online planning programs within a few days of each other. Homeschool Planet was by far the easiest, quickest, most painless one to set up for my 3 homeschooled children. My children are finding the printed weekly schedule easy to follow....we aren't using the 'email schedule to....' part of this program. I have bought a subscription even tho' I am not using this program to its fullest potential as it is still saving me lots of paper hassle and disorganization.

I think this product is amazing, in particular, for homeschool parents entering the high school years with their kids. To have schedule, capacity to send texts to husbands to pick up grocery items, do transcripts, and keep track of grades all from one schedule planner. Plus room to do lists of groceries, keep track of Bible verses to encourage you, I loved it. I'm not a computer person, but I could do this.
Margaret B., Co-op Member
I am enjoying using this planner. It is much more intuitive than the other on-line planner I've tried. I love the automatic rescheduling feature and the grading reminders when you start the program up. this planner actually makes my life easier.
Janet B., Co-op Member
This is an amazing tool. I can keep our lesson plans, our family calendar, to do lists, grocery lists, and chores all in one convenient location. I never have to try and remember, "Where did I write that down?" I can also access the information from my phone if I am away from the computer. I print the kids' chore lists and lesson plans out each morning and they know exactly what needs to be done without asking a dozen times. I will be using Homeschool-Planet for quite some time.
Amy D., Co-op Member
Homeschool Planet has enabled our homeschool to stay on track this semester. I am appreciating its ease of use, especially the editing capabilities, since our schedule seems to change constantly these days. I like the comprehensiveness of Homeschool Planet. It does more than any other organizers I've tried in the past. Best of all, my student uses it daily without any further prodding from me. Highly recommended.
Barbara, Co-op Member
A friend told me about Homeschool-Planet when he saw how flustered I was trying to catch up on preparing my daughter's weekly homeschool plans. I went home that day and immediately tried Homeschool- Planet's free trial to see for myself how this worked. Last week, I purchased it for the 1x easy yearly fee.

Our Top 4 Benefits:

a) My daughter sometimes gets into 'the zone' and just wants to continue with that subject for awhile. Her enthusiasm for the subject was nice to see, but keeping up with updating her study schedules was ...(more)
