Homeschool Planet - Online Planner

Homeschool Planet - FREE 30-Day Trial

Homeschool Planet - FREE 30-Day Trial

Are you thinking about a new planner? Or, do you need to change what you're currently doing?

If so, organize your world with a subscription to Homeschool Planet - everything you need to organize your home and your home school in one easy-to-use online planner!

But, don't take our word for it - here's what Co-op Member Amber J. has to say:

"I have tried a lot of ways to manage my homeschooling. I used to carry a huge binder around with hand written lesson plans, attendance, grade book, and everything else. I was starting to feel overwhelmed and defeated with the amount of papers and the hours it took to lesson plan. I stumbled across homeschool-planet on google and I'm so glad I did! It has taken the headache out of lesson planning and is a big time saver for me. Having the free 30 day trial was also nice. I was a bit unsure, but after setting up for my trial I was pleasantly surprised. The website is set up great and it's easy to navigate.Being able to use my laptop and having everything at my fingertips has really been great. My son can access his assignments and he's even said he likes this better than having a ton of papers laying out for his daily work. I would highly recommend this to anyone. I can't thank homeschool-planet enough for the product. It's really simplified my homeschool routine. I will continue to use this as long as I am homeschooling. The price is great. I tell all of my homeschooling friends and family about homeschool-planet." Click here for more testimonials!
