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)

We have always used a homeschool planner with my twins. It keeps us all on track, and it places the responsibility on the kids to get their work done. When they were young, we used a 3x5 card with check boxes, but as their school work became more involved, we moved to a paper planner that was personalized for each child. Sounds ideal, right? Well, it wasn't. Let s face it, life sometimes gets in the way and assignments need to be shifted around; with a paper planner that is a nightmare.

I was thrilled to be invited to be a beta-tester f...(more)

I am a wife, mother, full time employee, home school teacher, children's ministry teacher, schedule keeper, co-op leader and I have somewhat of a social life with friends. On top of all of that I am a planner. Spreadsheets, notebooks and calendars galore! The many different calendars I have to pay attention to can be mind-numbing.

Having one child that is home schooled and another that in enrolled in our public school system has never been that difficult, but then you throw in the various testing dates, field trips and project deadlines ...(more)

Homeschool-Planet is low cost tool for creating ,sharing and tracking lessons. It's easy to use and access. I like that gives us flexibility and son has a greater ownership in his learning. He checks his email daily ,like millions of workers do, to see his tasks of the day. It's a non threatening virtual checklist.

I have been using Homeschool Planet for 2 months now and I LOVE IT. The designs are great and I am glad that I finally found a non-complicated homeschool planner that I can start using right away. I love that it's online, so I don't have to "back up" my kid's information and can access it from anywhere. I was so into the program that I planned 6 months of certain, ongoing subjects in one sitting. And when something changed later on, I was able to easily go in and change it without it affecting the rest of the schedule. Tracking attendance ...(more)

As we finish our first full year using Homeschool Planet, I have to tell you how utterly and totally pleased I am with the program. HSP has literally saved me hours of writing, not to mention the wasted pages of constant erasing and scribbling when our schedule had to change throughout the year. HSP totally organized my entire year. I could not be happier. Without a doubt, I could have gotten by with the old tried and true paper and pencil, but using HSP kept me and my son right on track.

I will continue to suggest HSP to other homes...(more)

I highly recommend the Homeschool-Planet. I was able to use this program as a new homeschooling parent. It offers so many features and the ability to print your schedule showing multiple family members or a schedule for an individual. I printed my schedule with both my children's assignments listed and then printed one for each of them. They liked seeing their schedule for the day and checking off boxes as they completed their daily assignments. It is easy to create and schedule classes on the calendar for the whole year. I like the abili...(more)

I love Homeschool-Planet. It has helped keep us all accountable. This summer, I input every assignment for 4 kids for the entire school year. With life changes, I have had to add/remove assignments to fit our schedule and it is an absolute breeze with Homeschool-Planet. I will absolutely continue to use it, and I have told several other moms about it.

This online planner has been such a blessing to me over the last year as we started Kindergarten. I live in a state that requires no records to be provided, but I've still tracked everything, and I loved being able to print out the grades and attendance record for their school box this year.

I love the ease of use for planning, rescheduling, and keeping my family on track. It's also been great to be able to send my husband a quick list of groceries to grab on the way home if needed.

I couldn't live if I didn't have Homeschool Planet...(more)

I have been very happy with my purchase of this homeschool planner. I am new to teaching and wanted something that I could make changes in easily without having to rewrite the whole thing every time. This planner is fully customizable on your home computer and I really appreciate how easy it is to program my sons classes and lessons.

I also wanted something I could make changes to on my iPhone. This planner is not fully functional on my phone but I can make changes to the assignments and classes so it works for me. I hope in the near fut...(more)
