Homeschool Planning: My Weekly Planner


I found myself using a lot of sticky notes last year during our study of ECC. I didn't want to write in the teachers manual and I like to be able to rearrange things to fit our needs. I like the general grid in the teachers manual, but it doesn't include all our subjects (and has some we don't use). I had seen pages on Pinterest designed for a weekly menu that used sticky notes, and I liked the idea. I decided to create my own planning pages for the upcoming school year.

I designed a 2 page layout with a planning grid on the first page and weekly/daily boxes for sticky notes on the second page. I included a 2014-2015 one page school year calendar at the front. I kept it black & white to keep printing costs down. I can always write with colored pens and highlighters to add color, and use colored sticky notes of coarse :) I labeled the grid pages by week for 36 weeks. I like the flexibility of undated pages and I can add dates when we complete lessons. I can write my plans on sticky notes and rearrange them as needed. When completed, I can remove the sticky note and write what we did on the page for my records.

If you like my weekly planner and want one for yourself, I've made it available for purchase as a PDF download at Teachers Pay Teachers for only $1.75 - here's the link -

The 2014-2015 One Page School Calendar is also available separately as a free download - here's the link -

Happy Planning!
