Homeschool Planet had become my favorite planner, hands down. Our school days are ordered and the children have come to enjoy using their daily lesson plans. We work together to meet our daily goals which is fantastic. I like waking up in the morning to print the planner and be greeting by the checklist of the previous days schoolwork. I have told a friend about the planner and she is using it too.

I had a trial version of the home school planet and at first thought it would be just like every other home school planner that is around. But after a while, I found it to be invaluable to my planning and looked forward to entering the information ahead of each week or so. Yes, information does have to be entered for it to work properly but after a week or so, I found it easy to input and work out what we were doing and when. You also have places to insert field trips, doctor visits and holidays, plus more. Links to websites, PDF files and ...(more)

I got a free monthly subscription to Homeschool Planet and a couple of other online planners; one planner didn't offer a free first month but I had to pay $8 to try it out. I used all 4 online planners at the same time to see which one I liked best and hands down Homeschool Planet won! There are tutorials you can use to guide you step by step in setting up your planner and putting in your lesson plans but I didn't need to watch them with Homeschool Planet because it was very easy to figure it all out.

Homeschool Planet was easy to navigat...(more)

Homeschool Planet is the newest and best online planning tool I have ever used! Homeschool Planet is flexible and customizable, and yet it is designed with a homeschool family in mind. I am participating in the Beta best of the product at this time, but when the product is released to the public I intend to continue using it. The developers have been very responsive to my questions and suggestions. Homeschool Planet is cheaper than similar products I have seen on the market, but still fully functional. It helps with day-to-day scheduling an...(more)

After trying the trial period I bought the year subscription and I love it! You can schedule up to a month ahead (or longer, as needed), and if something comes up, it is so easy to change! Also it's easy to print out so your child can check off what they have done. I love this calendar!
Francine, Co-op Member
I love using Homeschool Planet to keep us organized with assignments and our day to day appointments and activities. I print off a daily sheet for each of my kids and it helps hold them accountable for getting things done!
Sarah Harbarth, Co-op Member
I work two days a week,so I especially love the daily email schedule reminders and the email during the day letting me know what my boys have finished/are still working on. I love all the details I can add, like web links and notes, to each specific assignment. It's very personalized and efficient-much quicker than others. I plan on using Homeschool Planet for the rest of my homeschool years!
D. Owens, Co-op Member
I originally learned about the planner via a blog and a video. I knew as soon as I tried it, I would like it and I loved it. I have 3 children in 3 different years and it was so easy to plan their schedules. It completely reduced my time in planning and did away with printing and writing in a standard planner. I love that if you need to reschedule a lesson, it adjusts it throughout the planner. It just made life so much easier. I will continue to use it as soon as I have the funds to do so and will miss it greatly until I can get back to it. I ...(more)

I love the Homeschool Planet Planner! I use it not only for tracking school work but for tracking the entire family's activities, chores and more! I call it the hub because it has become the hub of our daily activity. It is simple to use with a 1 page interface which I love!
My youngest son age 12 loves logging on with his own personal login so he can see his activities scheduled for the day and check off his homeschool assignments as he completes them. He thinks it's neat how he can send me messages straight to my phone from the messenge...(more)
Jennifer Hoover, Co-op Member
Homeschool Planet has been a wonderful and much needed addition to our homeschool program. Using Homeschool Planet has made scheduling much easier and has given me control over my organization. Both of my kids love having the daily plan printed out to see exactly what needs to be done and has given them more opportunities for independence in their work.

I have tried two products that were kind of similar, but neither of them were as user-friendly or as complete as Homeschool Planet. I will continue using Homeschool Planet and have and...(more)
