I've been raving to my friends since I first started using Homeschool Planet. I've tried many calendars and planners over the years which promised to make my life easier, but which only lead to me wanting to throw my computer out the window. I have, therefore, always ended up with the drudgery of making my own forms which, of course, meant drowning in mountains of paper.

Homeschool Planet actually delivers on its promise to make my life easier. I don't have a lot of spare time and I don't have a high tolerance for frustration, so I need som...(more)

With Homeschool-Planet I finally feel organized for my school year! It is what I have been wanting for so long! My children also enjoy the freedom they have of checking their schedule for the day and using initiative to get it done, they love marking their assignments complete!
Vivienne vdM, Co-op Member
I love the Homeschool Planet Planner! I use it not only for tracking school work but for tracking the entire family's activities, chores and more! I call it the hub because it has become the hub of our daily activity. It is simple to use with a 1 page interface which I love!
My youngest son age 12 loves logging on with his own personal login so he can see his activities scheduled for the day and check off his homeschool assignments as he completes them. He thinks it's neat how he can send me messages straight to my phone from the messenge...(more)

I've been homeschooling my children for 14 years! This planner is THE BEST planner I've seen. I'm thrilled with how organized it is and how much we are able to get done on a daily basis. Every day I print and hang up not only the school schedule for the day but also the daily to-do list (for chores). No more forgetting or nagging! My daughter knows everything MUST be completed by a certain time each day. It's simple and organized! We love it!!!!!

I have tried other paper planners with limited success. I just couldn't keep track of the papers. I had resisted trying an online planners because I really didn't think I would be able to figure it out. Not so, for Homeschool Planet. It is really easy to figure out, it has lots of options and gadgets, and I can choose how often to get digests emailed to me. It is nice to see what I have coming up on the calendar, what classes we have planned for each child, even what the weather is going to be this week. It's a very intuitive product and I...(more)

Homeschool Planet has become an invaluable part of our school day. It has shortened my planning time (and stress) exponentially and my kids always know what they should be doing and when to do it. It is very easy & intuitive to use. My kids (8 & 11 yo when we started) and I did not have to "go to school" to learn how to use it. The first time we opened it up I was immediately able to start inputting info and the kids could easily access their chores and assignments. I HIGHLY recommend Homeschool Planet!
Sherri A., Co-op Member
Love this planner. Once all my sons classes where set up it was so easy to go in and edit or change whatever needed to be changed. This planner saved me time. My son liked it too because it kept him on track with his school work. I could add other appointments to the calendar so he could see what was going on for the week besides school work. If you are a home school mom who wants an efficient, time saving planner, this planner is definitely for you. The developers of this planner have put in a lot of time developing this home school planner t...(more)

My famiy has been using this planner for just over a month. This is just what I have been looking for over a decade! After fiddling with paper planners and other difficult to navigate through systems, this has been a true blessing! My ninth grader plans out his entire schedule, giving him the opportunity to be autonomous. Easy to set up as well! We plan on keeping this well into our future! - Thank you!!!
Tami Nickel, Co-op Member
I have been homeschooling for many years and am forever looking for a planner that suits my needs with 5 children in 5 different grades. I could not find one that would work, until NOW! Homeschool-Planet Planner is Amazing! It is very easy to enter all assignments as a group and individually! The children love it because they can open their page and check it off as they go! I love it because I know exactly what they have done and if they didn't finish something you can roll it over to the next or another day! Also, I can print daily, weekly, o...(more)

I am actually getting ready to purchase the homeschool planet after my 30 day trail. I have not taken the time to fully review and find all it has for me, but everything that I have used has been great. This is my first year home schooling our daughter and this is a great tool. I am setting up my daughter's log on for the 2nd semester so she will see what she has to do for the day even her chores. What a great way to keep the kinds accountable for their responsibilities.
