Will started first grade this year, and I felt like it was time for him to get his own student planner. Since we homeschool part-time, I wanted to give him more responsibility in keeping track of and completing his school work. The problem is, he’s still pretty young, and most student planners are designed with middle or high school students in mind.
I came across A Plan In Place when I was searching for the perfect Homeschool Planner for myself. I was thrilled to find they had customizable student and “early learner” planners that would work well, not only for Will, but also for me to use with my twin preschoolers.
The moment A Plan In Place: Student Edition arrived, Will pretty much lost his marbles. He wouldn’t leave me alone until I showed it to him and got him ready to start using it.
There is a start-up page in the beginning that shows you how to use the planner and helps you get going. Will really loved the opening section with a place to write out goals, fill in his “autobiography,” chores & responsibilities, study plan and schedule.
The calendar and the weekly planning pages have been perfect for helping him keep track of what we have going on, what work we need to get done, and learning how to manage his time so we complete everything (or almost everything cuz LIFE HAPPENS). There is plenty of space for young kids with large, imperfect handwriting to fill in the blanks. It’s super customizable, so we were able to tailor A Plan In Place: Student Edition to our needs and even make adjustments for when we order one next year!
All in all, I would highly recommend A Plan In Place: Student Edition as the perfect student planner for young kids. My son absolutely loves it, and I’m sure your kids will, too.
The twins and I have also had a lot of fun using A Plan In Place: Early Learner Edition together. The girls can’t read or write yet, so it’s really a planner that I use with them. I talk to them and ask them questions as I fill in the pages. I show them the calendar, and we take turns filling things in depending on their skill with pencil and paper. It’s a great tool for me to actually plan lessons, but also a wonderful tool for introducing planning and personal accountability in our homeschool. A Plan In Place: Early Learner Edition is also highly customizable, so this planner can fit really any family and any homeschool curriculum.
