Great tool for the family! Easy to use and cute. I would suggest to open a tab where I can efile my daughter's project and pictures of each assignment or activities. Anyways, you are going to love it!

When I heard about Homeschool Planet I jumped on the chance to try it out. We were a first year homeschooling family and the hardest part of the adjustment for all of us was lesson planning and tracking. My girls will tell anyone they can how disorganized I am! I had started with another on-line planning software solution that unfortunately just was not up to par and caused me to spend far too many hours scheduling and never seemed to work quite right. So I gave up quickly and reverted to using paper. I am not a paper person - if there is a ...(more)

I had been telling my husband my wish list for a perfect homeschool planner. I really wanted a planner that I could access with my mobile devices. I also wanted to be able to add courses, individual assignments, keep attendance, calculate grades. It was important that my daughter be able to access her assignments to provide accountability and keep her organized. I had tried so many other planners and had settled on having to use several separate tools to get done what I needed done. A few weeks after venting to my husband about what I really ne...(more)

I have used an Excel workbook for tracking attendance, grades, weekly logs, etc. for the past several years, which has worked out fine. We are in our 8th year of homeschooling. With this year having my oldest in 7th grade, I needed something more of a schedule with easy ability to assign and move things around. I looked at a lot of options online and decided to try the free trial of Homeschool-Planet. Within just a few days we were hooked. Both my son and I love that he can bring his schedule up on his tablet and mark things off as he completes...(more)

I have been using Homeschool-Planet for two years. It has become an essential part of my homeschooling day. I count on it to organize our day, remind me of important tasks and track our long-term work. Thank you for creating such a user-friendly and helpful product.

I am thrilled to endorse the Homeschool Planet! It is an awesome way to integrate all of our family calendars, to-do lists and notes plus lesson plans to track our schedules from a central spot. Our 4 kids like getting due date reminders and also viewing the activities for the day.

I have just completed my 30 day trial of Homeschool Planet and was quick to purchase the yearly subscription.

Homeschool Planet has made lesson planning so much easier for me. It used to take me hours to do 1 week of lesson plans on my homemade excel template. With Homeschool Planet I am able to do weeks of lesson planning, rescheduling things, add specific notes for certain days, and so much more. I like how I am able to set up a grading scale for each class and determine which assignments are homework, quizzes, projects, tests, etc. and...(more)

I took advantage of the free trial for Homeschool Planet a few weeks ago and I really like it. I have tried a couple of the other online homeschool planners - one paid and one free. I definitely like Homeschool Planet the best. I've scheduled the first half of the year, with the knowledge that I would need to make changes after we began. We started school two weeks ago and I have had to change the schedule. It was super easy to make the changes and when I hit a snag and had to contact customer service, I had an answer within 24 hours. That's a ...(more)

I love Homeschool-Planet! I have tried several computer based homeschool planners over the years but this is by far the best. It is very user friendly and is quick to learn and navigate. It doesn't include an overabundance of features that make it complicated. Other computer planners take so long to learn to navigate that I always felt like I wasn't getting any planning done.

My teens love having their assignments emailed to them everyday. My favorite feature is the grading and rescheduling helper. When I log in it pops right up letting...(more)

I am loving this online planner! It helps me to stay organized and keep grade book records. My kids love the assignment lists that are emailed - my daughter prefers the weekly digest while my son prefers the daily reminder. I love the flexibility of the program and have only just begun to discover all the components.
