Looking for Homeschool Planner Plus, our spreadsheet planner? It’s here.
TheHomeSchoolMom Planner is a comprehensive organizer for appointments, school assignments, lesson planning, record keeping, and family menu planning. It is free for personal use and can be viewed and printed with the free Acrobat Reader. FlyLady compatible weekly and menu planner pages are here.
We’ve made it easier to download this year with a single zip file – just print the pages you need. We’ve designed the planner to use a minimum of ink to help cut expenses.
(Please note that there was an error in the calendar the first few days it was available. If your download does not say v2 at the end of the filename, please download the newest version.)

Household and Homeschool Pages
Menu Planner / To Do / Chore Chart
The combined Menu Planner / To Do / Chore Chart can help you keep track of multiple household tasks for yourself and/or children all in one place. The page on the left has columns for the day’s menu, mom’s to do list, and 2 child columns. The page on the right has 4 child columns.
Weekly Assignment Pages
There are three different Weekly Assignment pages, with columns for one, two, or three children. If you have two students, you may choose to download either the two column Weekly Assignment page, or the one column and give one to each child. I suggest filling out and keeping the master assignment sheet in mom’s planner, and copying the complete assignment sheet to give to each child. By using the one column Weekly Assignment page, you allow more room in each column to detail assignments.
Using the Weekly Planner with Weekly Assignment Sheets:
The Weekly Planner is designed to be hole-punched on the left side of the page, and the Weekly Assignments/Unschooling Record Keepers are designed to be hole punched on the right side of the page. When your Planner is open on your desk, the Weekly Planner page will be on the right, with the Assignments/Unschooling Record Keeper page opposite the corresponding Weekly Planner page on the left. The pages are all designed to fit in a standard 8 1/2 x 11 three ring binder.
Although the planner pages can be copied two-sided with the Weekly Planner on one side and the Assignment Sheet on the other side, the most practical way to use the planner is to print the pages single-sided, and to use the appropriate Weekly Assignment page opposite each Weekly Planner page. This allows you to add other relevant pages between each week for quick reference, while still allowing both the Planner and the Assignment pages to be seen simultaneously.
Unit Study Planner and Log:
The Unit Study Planner can help you organize your resources and pull it all together. The Unit Study Planner is designed to be used as you initially plan your unit. It allows you to list all of your resources, set your goals for your unit, and begin to organize your unit.
Once you have organized a list of your resources and visited the library to finalize the books you have available, the Unit Study Log can be used to record your lesson plans. It has columns to list the activities you plan to do for the unit, including the date, the activity, the amount of time planned for the activity, and any supplies needed or notes for the activity.
