Homeschool Planet - Sign up for a FREE Trial

Did you know you can have separate logins for each student in Homeschool Planet?

We know kids like to have things to call their own, that's why we made it easy for each student have their own login in order to view their assignments and check them off when completed. No more arguing over who's turn it is on the computer!

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

"I'm absolutely blown away by this planner! The biggest struggle for me with homeschooling was maintaining a plan, because I need more flexibility than structure. Keeping a written calendar was ridiculous, because our days were not predictable from one to the next. With this, I could easily schedule out a year, and shift tasks when things didn't happen as expected! plus, I love that each of my sons can log into their own calendar and check off tasks as they went along. It gives them a real sense of accomplishment!" Click here for more testimonials!

Does your child learn by doing? Are you looking for a math program to help your child build daily confidence with their math skills? If so, we’ve been talking to DoodleMaths, a UK company which has developed an easy-to-use and engaging math app for children ages 4-14.

The DoodleMaths app runs Apple/iOS or Android devices, online or offline - so use anytime anywhere. It also works on PCs and Macs, too.

Take DoodleMaths for a free trial and use the program for a few daily questions to see if it is right for your child here.
