The Ultimate Homeschool Planner Review


Apologia Ultimate Homeschool Planner

Hey neighbors!

Stick around for a few moments and see what we learned about the "The Ultimate Homeschool Planner - Orange Cover" from Apologia Educational Ministries.  As you can see from my previous statement I received the Orange Cover Planner for review.  This planner is also available in yellow and blue covers.  The planner system was designed by Debra Bell.

When you open your planner there is a small flap inside for holding important papers.  There is a matching flap in the back.  Next page is filled with monthly calendars, starting with June of 2013 and ending with July of 2017.  Each set of calendars is a school year.  Next is a spot to record your personal information.

Next is a 12 page User Guide to teach you how to effectively use your Ultimate Homeschool Planner.  Here you will learn how to use each section of your planner.  Also included in this section are some little tips and hints to help make your school year go a little easier.

Your first section to fill in is your one year planning grid.  Here you make note of days school will be in session, vacation days, co-op days, field trips etc.  Have your husband assist with this section as you plan your year.

The next section is for setting goals for your student.  I like that not only are there Academic Goals, but there are Character Goals.  We personally homeschool, not just for academics, but because we believe this is better all the way around and allows us to train in many different areas.  There is room here for 6 students.



There are some pages to list resources before you get into your monthly planners.  I like the extra space at the bottom for notes.  This is where you can specifically plan each months activities, work out any problems, look at last month's goals and move ahead.



The next section is probably one of my favorites.  It is the Weekly Section.  I love that they set Sunday aside with a page for listing, a Bible Plan, Prayer and even Hospitality/Outreach.  Each week has a Sunday page.  You then move to the Monday-Saturday pages where you plan your days.



After this you have a section to record reading lists, whether fiction, non-fiction, assigned, or just free reading.  I think I would have to add some extra pages here!  There is also room for recording field trips.



The Ultimate Homeschool Planner finishes up with some teaching tips and then an area to look back on your year in review.



The Ultimate Homeschool Planner will help you organize your year and to set out a plan for learning.  Realize I am not saying here that you can not vary or change your plan as you go along, but it gives your homeschool some structure.  All throughout the planner you will find areas to record how the Lord has worked in your family, prayer requests and answers to prayer.  Little extras like this are what makes this planner so unique.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

10 Things You Need To Do Before Moving Abroad

From There is nothing more fulfilling than travelling the world and visiting new and exciting places. If you’re a fan of travel , then you might have thought about moving abroad at some point. Unfortunately, there is a lot to do before you can get on the plane, with finding accommodations and a job being the most important. If you’re moving abroad soon, or think that it’s something that you’d like to do in the future, then here are ten things that you need to do before you start your new life. 1. Visit The Country Plenty of people move abroad without visiting the country first.

This way you can get used to the culture, and will know in advance whether or not the country is somewhere that you’d actually like to live. 2. Research The Country You need to do lots of research before you move abroad, especially if you haven’t visited the count
