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'm very happy with this product so far! I love how I can schedule the entire year and it is so easy to adjust if we get off schedule. This product will definitely be a time saver for me!

I have tried many different ways of setting up my sons lessons in the past nine years. Homeschool Planet is the best that I have found. I not only keep track of my sons lessons, but all family commitments in one place. LOVE IT!!!!

I have tried a number of different planning and record-keeping products over the years, only to abandon each after just a few weeks. With high school looming next year, I knew I needed to get a system in place. I began using Homeschool Planet to plan our year over Summer, and two month into the year we're still going strong with it. My daughter is doing well using her weekly schedule, and I like that I can schedule repeating lessons easily and for most subjects the schedule doesn't need any further updating from me after the initial entry or...(more)

This product is amazing. It even allows you to track grades. It has everything you could want or need.

I am SO glad I found this program! Making my kid's assignment plan for the week has never been easier. I love the flexibility of this program! Being able to move around their assignements (based on how our day went!) is extremely helpful. I also love the daily Bible verse to focus and encourage me. Thank you so much for making my homeschool life just a little easier :)
Leslie Smith, Co-op Member
This is my second year using Homeschool Planet and I won't use anything else. I have tried paper schedules but inevitable life happens! It was so hard to move assignments and I really had no tracking method for my daughter grades.
My daughter entered "middle school" last year and I knew I would need to start learning to track for high school soon, why not figure out what works best for us. The benefit now is she is in junior rodeo and thier requirement is to turn in grades two weeks before a competition! I can easily do that without str...(more)

I absolutely love the Homeschool Planet online planner.

Having the ability to send my son a daily email is wonderful and the embedding of links and files makes my life much easier.

The only improvement I would make is the ability to create lesson plans without dates and make the drag and drop feature of rescheduling easier so that it only changes the assignment you have moved, rather than everything in a sequence. [Editor's Note: Subscribers to have the ability to create lesson plans without dates on their "Lesson Plans" page.]

After using this planning tool last fall for a month, I was impressed by all the options and my daughter loved it. However, I'm a paper & pen kind of person and was convinced I could find something I liked as well in hard copy. After several months of searching and trial and error, I came back and purchased Homeschool Planet with a huge sigh of relief. It allows us to track our days, classes, assignments without making us feel like a slave to our schedule. It's easy to move assignments to different days or shift all our assignments with a c...(more)

I am a paper-and-pencil kind of gal, but I shall never go back as far as homeschool planning goes!! Life happens a lot and we get behind on lessons. (Latin. Why can't I ever fit in Latin?!) With the paper and pencil method I would have to erase days of plans in my planner, make the pages all smudgy and take up so much precious time RE-planning everything if something was missed. With Homeschool-Planet, all I have to do is click a little button and my plans align.

Homeschool-Planet is also just plain fun to use. I haven't stopped at ...(more)
