"I have been using this planner while on my FREE trial. WHAT A PROGRAM!!! I am BLOWN away! This is my 26th year of homeschooling, and with only 3 years left to go,...I JUST NOW started using this awesome planner? Thank you, THANK YOU!!!"

I started using Homeschool Planet as my days are starting to get crazy with a 5th grader, a 2nd grader, and a toddler in our home. It was really easy to get started and the tutorials were a great help. Everything has been simplified for me and it is a weight of my shoulders to plan ahead for assignments and "classes" and other stuff. I am loving the ease at which Homeschool Planet helps me stay on top of my school and how easy it is to use. I also really love that I feel accountable. It reminds me that I have to grade assignments or that certai...(more)

I have to say that my planning and organization would not be as good if I didn't have Homeschool-Planet! The Co-op has been helpful with getting more information to me as fast as possible so that I can take advantage of new and discounted offers to make home school easier for me and my family. The kids like being able to see their schedule with resources and web links right in front of their eyes.I do plan to continue to use Homeschool-Planet for MANY reasons! Even for the doctor appointments, field trips, holidays or other activities that need...(more)

As a whole famy unit we have enjoyed using this homeschool 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 infor...(more)

I needed a homeschool planner that would help my autistic daughter keep up with her assignments. She likes lots of structure. I used this on a trial offer and it was amazing the difference it made to our school day. She could see exactly what was expected. It calmed our day down so much. As I use it I am really liking the flexibility. I can move assignments around as I need to when changes come into our daily plan. It is so user friendly. When I have had some questions on how to do something, I sent and email and got quick response. I have reco...(more)

Thank you for offering the free 30 day trial of Homeschool-Planet. I am a paper and pencil kind of gal, but I thought I would try out an online homeschool planner. Wow! What a difference it made in my scheduling. Writing out paper planners for three children was a huge ordeal each month. I had to plan out the children's schedules in my teacher planner, and then transfer each assignment to the individual planners.

That was not the stressful portion of my month. When unplanned activities would arise, (and they always do when you homesc...(more)

I've tried just about every online planner free trial and they each have one or two things at which they excel. Homeschool Planet has incorporated the best parts of each of these other homeschool planners. However, Homeschool Planet excels where none of the others do: There was NO learning curve! None! I was walked through every part and never felt frustrated. It's a beautiful system and I can't think of a fault to point out. I am only sad that my kids are too young for me to justify the expense just yet. As soon as our schedules become...(more)

Homeschool Planet had become my favorite planner, hands down. Our school days are ordered and the children have come to enjoy using their daily lesson plans. We work together to meet our daily goals which is fantastic. I like waking up in the morning to print the planner and be greeting by the checklist of the previous days schoolwork. I have told a friend about the planner and she is using it too.

I was looking for an LMS that would allow me to schedule my kids days, provide web-links, and allow for them to log-in and check it off as they go. Homeschool planet is the only LMS on the market that I found that was user friendly and could do all those things and more. This system has made my days so much easier and the kids like knowing what is expected for the day. If something comes up it is very easy to reschedule or adjust as needed. I have researched and done the free trial for every LMS available on the market and Homeschool planet is ...(more)

This is THE solution I was looking for! I spent my first 2 years home schooling using an excel spreadsheet to plan my lessons, and it was miserable. It was inflexible and terribly limited, and I spent way more time fussing with it than I wanted.

For year three I went hunting for an on-line homeschool planner. I found My Well-Planned Day and got in as a Beta user, prepared for some hiccups but optimistic that it would be a better tool for us. Wrong. After a year and a half I was so frustrated with glitches and limited functionality that ...(more)
