The Well Planned Day

Guest Author - Alissa Moy

I had the opportunity to review a wonderful homeschool planner, titled "The Well Planned Day". Created by Rebecca Keliher, this planner is full of many organizational forms, scriptures, schedule outlines, and articles with heart. Some of you may know of Rebecca's other work, namely the Home Educating Family magazine. If you visit their website there is a link for a free issue, as well as information on their planners.

"The Well Planned Day" has all of the elements of a fantastic organizer. There are schedule forms, lesson plan templates, attendance records, and much more. What is so neat about this planner is that it really focusses on the homeschool mom as the keeper of her home and homeschool. I love the fact that the planner includes shopping list forms, menu planning space, weekly priority areas and emergency contact information. I feel like this is a place where I can really organize my life alongside my homeschool!

As this is a Christian planner, it is comforting to have a "Weekly Catechism" area in the planner, as well as a calendar for each month with a specific Bible verse for each day. For those of us that are Christians this is a special attribute of the planner that is quite unique.

The artwork and design of the planner showcases it as a natural and simple resource. It looks professional, yet has a touch of family and home to it. The planner is designed to keep track of one to four homeschool students. The printed version is $24.95, and the PDF version is $19.95.

The articles within the planner are another bonus. I especially enjoyed the article about facts and ideas in homeschool teaching. The comparison of schedules likened to a "rich stew" versus "bread and water rations" was very ingenius. The articles have a range of topics, and there are twelve different ones to reflect upon. There are also Bible verses and Christian based inspirational quotes throughout the planner. I appreciate this touch of spirituality, however, those who are of the same religion may not concur. This is definately a planner designed for a Christian homeschool family. but taking out the religious elements, there is still alot of "meat and potatoes" to this
228 page planner.

Areas in the planner also compliment your homeschool enrichment. There is a place to record field trips, books read, goals, and enrichment activities. This keeps your homeschool information in a monthly order, and there is space to include all work and play accomplished.

I look forward to utilizing this planner for my homeschool, personal plans, and daily inspiration. Hopefully tomorrow will be a "Well Planned Day" for my homeschool life!
