2013-2014 Schoolhouse Planners Giveaway

Well, it's that time of year again. It's time to start planning for the next school year. One of my goals for this year is to be more organized. While it hasn't been extremely important while the children have been young, I am going to have to start reporting to the school district in a couple of years and I want to make sure I have everything organized properly to cut down on the stress. I figured this year would be a good practice run to see if I have what it takes to continue homeschooling as the children reach school age. It has been so simple for me to teach preschool level materials as I have worked in the Montessori and another day care prior to having the children. But, this school age thing has me thrown for a loop. I am so thankful to have found some great planners from The Old Schoolhouse Magazine and Schoolhouseteachers.com (a division of The Old Schoolhouse Magazine which I reviewed for the TOS Review Crew back in December of 2012) and I would love to share them with you.

This is the "Big Mama" 2013-2014 Schoolhouse Planner.
There is just so much information packed into this customizable planner. You'll find tons of forms to help you organize not just your homeschool, but your home as well. Most of the forms are able to be edited on the computer, you can then choose to save them on the computer or print them out (me I will need to print them out, I need physical copies, but it is great that I will have a copy on the computer as I tend to lose things), and you can even print them out and fill them in by hand. 

There are several different calendars: year at a glance for 2013 and 2014, and single or double page monthly calendars. 

There are forms galore. Forms for planning the course of study (such as assignments, objectives, homeschool requirements, convention planning and even preschool organization and checklists), forms for keeping track of your curriculum, forms for evaluations through the school year (including book logs, audio/video logs, extracurricular activity logs and standardized testing result forms), forms for organizing field trips (which also includes co-op information), a file on Lists of Lists (such as Top Picks, What Not to Do or Use again, and To-Do lists), and scheduling forms (such as weekly planning by subject, weekly schedule forms for 2, 3, 4 or 5 children, daily plans, goals and extra curricular activities)

There are also notebooking and journal sheets to print and use. You will find both print and cursive worksheets, nature journals, regular journals, book report forms and even science lab pages.  There are even Unit Study planning pages. 

And that is not all. You will also get a slew of "Must Know Lists" in multiple subjects. These subjects include: Fine Arts, Geography, Mathematics, Science, History, Canada and Language Arts. 

In addition to all these forms and lists, you will also receive helpful homeschooling articles. 

And if that is not enough, they also included a separate file of household forms and information, which I have not had the time to really look at in detail. I did see gardening, pet and car information, plus chore charts, but there is so much more (over 80 pages worth of information and forms in fact).

This is the Primary Schoolhouse Planner

You will find articles that are written especially for primary students. There are calendars, planning pages for homeschool and home, field trip report sheets, book and video logs, chore charts and a Bible reading schedule. There are also informational lists such as Caldecott and Newbery award winners, Biblical lists, grammar rules, story starters, math tables and animal classification charts. There are over 200 pages of information and forms.

The following planners are also found at schoolhouseteachers.com. However, I have not downloaded them as I do not have a use for them yet. The descriptions that follow are directly from the website.
