If you haven’t started already, it is about that time to plan for a new homeschool year. This is also the best time to start teaching your children how to plan with their very own planner. These free homeschool planners for kids will help your children to take control of their own education.

I like having a personal planner for myself. Homeschool moms know that a good planner is the best tool that they can have. It can help you to efficiently run your home, your homeschool and the busy schedules for your family. It can also be a lot of work to keep up with everyone’s individual schedules.

This is where homeschool planners for kids come in so handy. It helps them to learn organization and time management skills. My children really enjoy keeping their own personal planner, and even the youngest ones like checking off boxes as they complete their work. 

Why are homeschool planners for students important?

  • They create good habits. A child that learns to check off their work as they go along will be better organized as an adult.
  • Reduces stress. When your children see what they have to do in front of them, they can create a plan that works best for their brain, and they won’t be as overwhelmed.
  • It helps hold them accountable to the work they need to complete, as well as their extra curricular responsibilities.
  • Teaches your kids to keep good records. This is especially important for your older students and is a great life skill to learn now.
