Freedom Homeschooling

Free Planners and Calendars

by | Dec 9, 2019 | general homeschooling | 1 comment

It’s hard to believe it’s almost 2020! I recently grabbed my calendar to write down an upcoming appointment and realized my calendar ends with December. Oops! I thought I had one of those school year calendars that goes through June. If you’re starting to plan for the next semester or year and, like me, find that there are no more pages in your planner or calendar, don’t rush out and buy a new one. There are plenty of free planners and calendars available for download online.

Here are some of the free planners and calendars I’ve found:

Free Planners

7 Step Homeschool Planner – Tina’s Dynamic Homeschool provides over 500 downloadable pages you can mix and match to create a custom planner. It includes a lesson planner, attendance records, calendars, goal sheets, and much more.

Personal Planner Printables – The Scattered Squirrel offers a large selection of daily, weekly, and monthly planner pages.

Middle & High School Planner – These downloads from Homeschool Creations include a daily schedule page, plus pages for long term planning, tracking credits, and more.

Homeschool Planning Pages – My Joy Filled Life’s planning pages include calendars, assignment sheets, attendance tracker, reading log, grade record, and much more.

Free Weekly Planner – This Bit of Life offers these simple weekly planning sheets in two different color schemes.

Homeschool Planning Worksheets – This planner, created by Table Life Blog, includes pages for daily, monthly, and weekly use.

Weekly Assignments Check List – Starts at Eight’s checklist-style planner is excellent for assigning lessons and other tasks.

Time Blocking Worksheets – Hey Donna provides several time blocking templates, plus a detailed explanation of how to use time blocking to plan your day and increase your productivity.

Homeschool Assignment & Chore Sheets – These printable sheets, from Happy Brown House, are great for helping kids become more independent with their daily responsibilities.

Family Calendar & Lesson Planner – This printable, from The Homeschool Resource Room,  includes calendar pages and lesson planning pages.

Digital Planning – If printable planners aren’t your thing, this post at Faith & Good Works explains how to plan digitally on an iPad. A downloadable daily plan of action is available.

The Reverse Homeschool Planner – Rather than planning lessons in advance, these pages created by This Simple Balance, are used to record what you actually do each day in your homeschool.

Free Calendar Templates

If you need a simple calendar, without all the planner pages and other resources, try the templates on these websites. They each offer multiple formats and styles.

I hope you’ve found a planner or calendar that works for you. What I love about these free printable planners and calendars is that you can mix and match pages from various printables, creating the perfect custom-made planner for your family. Also, if you want to try a new method of planning, you can print a few pages for a trial run, rather than buying an entire planner in the store.
