So you’ve heard it all before, successful homeschooling starts with being organised and planning ahead and if you fail to plan then you plan to fail.

This Homeschool Planner has all you need and more. With 300+ pages plus 20 front covers to choose from, this planner may be the LAST you’ll ever need inshaAllah and here are the reasons why:

1. It’s FREE – If you’re like me then you’ve probably browsed high and low trying to find the most cost effective Homeschool Planner out there, only to find that they are too high in price or just don’t suit your homeschooling anyway. With this planner, you no longer need to worry about spending a penny at all. Plus forget about waiting last minute to purchase a new one for the coming year. Who wants to wait last minute to plan ahead. Which brings me to my next point!

2. It’s Flexible – You don’t need to wait for the next years planner to become available weeks or even days before. That’s right! Say goodbye to last minute planning because this planner not only allows you to log in all your homeschool essentials, but it also gives you the option to input the date you choose with the provided spaces inside. All you need is a calendar which you will find inside for the past and future years to come both Gregorian AND Islamic inshaAllah.

3. It’s For You – Because we care so much for our homeschool parents and know the importance of being organised, we especially designed this planner to suit most homeschoolers needs. There’s space to write your thoughts and to do/wish lists just for you and reminders to keep you going! And not everybody has the same taste in colours and style so as a bonus, you will find a selection of ‘Front Covers’ to choose from for your planner to suit your personality. You are not just a homeschooler, you are an amazing parent too and so much more so embrace that.

Homeschool Timetables Samples — March 3, 2016

Homeschool Timetables Samples

With all the talk about routines and schedules, it seems that there are more tasks to complete throughout our day than we have time for.

Understand the difference between ‘Routines’ and ‘Schedules’
Routines are more about our etiquettes and lifestyle throughout our days and week, a certain action that we implement on a regular basis regardless of its time; whereas Schedules are more of a structured plan that is set at a specific time. An example of a routine is ‘I read at least once a day’, and an example of a schedule is ‘I read everyday at 8am’.

I personally believe that everyone can benefit from a regular routine that they can use as a guideline (morning, afternoon and evening) but not everyone can work well with a schedule. I also believe in not being afraid to break routines to fit in higher priorities once in a while, yet the earlier we have a routine the better we can adjust.

What to include in your timetable
Your timetable depends on your priorities and family lifestyles etc. Thus when choosing what to include in your timetable, keep in mind that everyone is different and you’re not obliged to blind follow others; rather appreciate the difference, prioritise your needs and must dos because that’s what matters in the end. Also, try to keep your homeschool timetables separate from your other daily/weekly tasks. Here is a quick list of what to include:

  • Days of the week
  • Subjects
  • Topics
  • Activities
  • Breaks
  • Trips
