It’s that time of year when many homeschool families are finishing up the last of their lessons, all the while, mom is thinking ahead to the next school year. Homeschool convention season is in full swing and homeschool parents are making their lists of curriculum to buy for the upcoming year and assessing what worked and what didn’t this past year.
We actually school year round, but come spring we are usually wrapping up whatever levels we are working on and it’s time to think about what to move onto next.
So if you are in homeschool planning mode (I don’t know about you, but I feel like I always am), here are a few favorite resources for planning your year and for helping you stay organized, plus some printables that I have made over the years to use in my yearly planning that I’m sharing with you below.
Below you will find a monthly 2014-2015 calendar, a school year-at-a-glance calendar, a course of study worksheet, and a weekly student assignment sheet that you can download –
