Who needs a helping hand every once in awhile? (raising hand high!) Homeschool moms are busy people. We not only have to plan for schooling our children, but we have church activities, play dates, and doctor appointments. Don't even mention if we have a job and the scheduling that goes along with that. I like to be organized and so I keep a calendar of all of my responsibilities. I have a calendar for school, a calendar for blogging, and a calendar for my life. That is a lot of calendars and schedules to keep track of. That's where Homeschool Planet from Homeschooler Buyers Co-op comes in to help.
Homeschool Planet is a place where you can schedule everything in your life in one place. Too good to be true? Well, it's not. This is the real deal. You can schedule everything you need to on the same calendar. You can even have separate schedules for each person in your family. Yes. You read that right. Each person in your family can have their own calendar - all in the same place. I'm a Mac user and there is a very cool thing about Homeschool Planet and Mac users. It connects with ICal! That's right. When I put something into Homeschool Planet, it automatically goes into my ICal. Great, right? Here's a picture of what it looks like in ICal.
Do you see all of the purple on there? That's from Homeschool Planet. Why is that so great? Well, I have my Ical connected to my desktop. My ICal shows my what's coming up for the week on my desktop using an app that my husband found a long time ago.
Again, do you see the purple at the top of the screen? That's Homeschool Planet! They are all at the top of my screen because I set them as "all day" events, but if I would put a specific time on them, that's where they would be on my screen. So whatever I put into Homeschool Planet shows on my desktop every time I open my computer. I absolutely love that! I have never had any school on my desktop before and with Homeschool Planet, now I can!
Scheduling school for the boys is easier with Homeschool Planet, too, because there are lesson plans that you can get. Let me explain. We signed up for the free summer session of Clever Dragons, through Homeschool Buyers Co-op. Then I got the Clever Dragons Lesson Plans free from Homeschool Buyers Co-op's free lesson offer going on right now. All I had to do was to click a few buttons and it planned everything for my 3rd grader to know exactly what he needed to do each day. You read that right. I only had to click a few buttons and the entire lesson plan was done - for the year! It really is amazing!
I want to tell you about Homeschool Buyers Co-op's FREE offer going on right now. You have a few more days to get in on this great deal so that you can try out Homeschool Planet for yourself for FREE! Who doesn't love free? If you sign up for a FREE month trial of Homeschool Planet, you will also be able to get a FREE lesson plan from their new Lesson Plan Marketplace. There are so many lesson plans that will help you with your planning. You have got to go and check out all that they have! When I first heard about it, I didn't really understand the significance of it all. I always try to do as much as I can myself, so that I don't have to pay anything. Let me tell you! It's worth the price if you decide to get more than just the FREE one. It literally plans the entire curriculum for you. This deal is only good through the end of June, so you'll want to hurry up and get the free month and the free lesson plan NOW!
It doesn't stop at just planning it for you. Homeschool Planet will actually send you an email each day showing you what is on the schedule for the day. You can even set it up where it will email your kids their schedules, as well. This really promotes independent learning! I will definitely be using this with my 8th grader this year. He is ready to be doing things on his own and so and email sent to him will be so great! He can look at the email and get to work. When he completes an assignment, he can sign into Homeschool Planet and check it off of the list so that I can see what he's accomplished. I really love that!
Ok, so I hope that you get the picture on how much I love Homeschool Planet from Homeschool Buyers Co-op. I had heard about it before, but didn't really appreciate all that it can do for me to make my life easier. It will truly make planning school and life so much easier and quicker! You can't beat that!
