We love these planners!
Get your plan in place for summer AND the upcoming school year

May is the month that we give away the download version of our summer planner/journal with EVERY student and high school #homeschoolplanner purchased.

When you order in our shop, you can simply choose to add it on and it will be sent to you by e-mail.

This CAN be combined with other offers too so don't miss out and please share with your #homeschooling friends.

It is a great way to track the tasks that still need to be completed and have a wonderful memory book adding photos and journal pages to keep them writing.

Cut Curriculum Costs with Yellow House Book Rental
With so many homeschoolers on a limited budget, renting curriculum seems like such a great option. Yellow House Book Rental’s website offers information on how rental works and what products are offered. The best part is, this is a family business run by a homeschooling family!

This is one of my very FAVORITE parts of the teacher edition! Love that 'big picture' exercise in planning. What a HUGE help!
What do you like to brainstorm as you plan your #homeschool year?
I have six in my #homeschoolplanner!
I always use one for each of my kids just as general idea place. I also love to look at co-op and class ideas. I am using one this year for ALL the literature I want my high schooler to get through so I can narrow it down when I put my final plan together.
So much to think about and I love brainstorming. 😁

How We Came to LOVE Teaching Textbooks
Balancing the needs of an age range of children is always something I am faced with. Back in the days of toddlers to pre-teens, we hit a bump in our homeschool math journey. Well, not just a bump but a puddle of tears and a pile of frustration most mornings. So here is the story of just how we came to love Teaching Textbooks...
