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.

Polar FA20 Activity Watch Review and Giveaway

Hi Neighbors, Well, I am out of the hospital, but I am not allowed to be very active yet, so I asked my daughter to test out this new item. It is an Activity Watch. What a great item for Get Out Get Active! The Polar FA20 counts your daily physical activity. First you need to set the basic information. The date, units (metric or imperial), your weight, height, birth date, and male or female. Place the FA20 on your wrist to measure your physical activity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This watch monitors your activity and gives you feedback about how you are doing. Everyone should be physically active at least 30 minutes each day, and the FA20 helps you achieve this. Throughout your day you can check and see if you are having a Lazy Day (active less than 30 minutes), Easy Day (active 30 to 60 minutes), Active Day (active 60 to 75 minutes) or an Intensive Day (active more than 75 minutes). You can also record your training sessions to learn more about how your body respon

This monitor comes witha high and low alert so you can make sure you stay right where you are supposed to. Not overdoing it, yet not taking it too easy!
