Homeschool Planet has been a sanity-saver! I have tried lots of other homeschool planners — both paper and electronic — and have never been as impressed with them as I have been with Homeschool Planet. I love that I can enter our lesson plans as far ahead as I need/want and they are easily adjustable with a simple click of a button. I don’t need to erase and re-write if things change. I also find it incredibly helpful that I can add our appointments in, as well as chores and then have it all emailed to myself and each child (they are middle-school and high-school aged). Prior to using Homeschool Planet, I had an electronic calendar for appointments, and a paper planner for lesson plans which I then typed into daily work lists for each child. It is wonderful having everything in one place! The only thing that would make this better is having an Android app so I can add appointments, etc. from my phone (because, really, what homeschooler actually stays at home? LOL)

This is the first time in my four years of homeschooling that I have finally been able to organize my day and stay on track. I have tried numerous daily planners and have always felt they are missing something. With the Homeschool-Planet I have the opportunity to put in the missing pieces. I recommend everyone going for the free trial!
I love the Homeschool Planet Planner! I use it not only for tracking school work but for tracking the entire family’s activities, chores and more! I call it the hub because it has become the hub of our daily activity. It is simple to use with a 1 page interface which I love!
My youngest son age 12 loves logging on with his own personal login so he can see his activities scheduled for the day and check off his homeschool assignments as he completes them. He thinks it’s neat how he can send me messages straight to my phone from the messenger widget. Thanks Homeschool Planet for such and awesome product!
I’ve been using HomeSchool Planet since the beginning of this year. I have tried 2 other electronic planners. This is the easiest for me to use. There are a couple of things that I wish I could do that I haven’t figured out how to do, yet, but overall, I find it to be pretty easy. The only recommendation that I have is to provide step-by-step videos for those of us that are strong visual learners. 🙂 I’ll know at the end of the quarter if reporting is as easy as I hope it will be. Thanks!

A friend told me about Homeschool-Planet when he saw how flustered I was trying to catch up on preparing my daughter’s weekly homeschool plans. I went home that day and immediately tried Homeschool- Planet’s free trial to see for myself how this worked. Last week, I purchased it for the 1x easy yearly fee.
Our Top 4 Benefits:
a) My daughter sometimes gets into ‘the zone’ and just wants to continue with that subject for awhile. Her enthusiasm for the subject was nice to see, but keeping up with updating her study schedules was a nightmare. With Homeschool-Planet, it is a matter of ‘click and drag’ to switch assignments according to how my daughter is completing them. Love it!
b) My daughter loves to log-in to Homeschool-Planet and see all her assignments for the day, decide what order to do the work in and check things off as she gets it done. I have my own log-in and can double check everything with ease.
c) We often get sidetracked with lovely learning things, and this means certain other items on the day’s list do not get done. This used to cause me stress, worrying about how to keep track of all these loose ends. Now it’s so easy to make quick decisions on whether to reschedule the assignment for the next day and bump everything 1 day over, or perhaps to double up on assignments the next day, etc… So many choices and Homeschool-Planet does it with a click of a button.
d) I’ve gone in and scheduled subjects out for the year, some for 3 months, others for a couple of weeks. Love this versatility too.
I could go on! It’s a great product and I highly recommend it!
We just finished our free trial of Homeschool Planet and I love how easy the program is to navigate and my daughter loves being able to check off her work as she completes it. We decided to subscribe for the remainder of the school year. She especially loves to send me text messages when she completes and assignment and to report how well she did.
I loved the experience, it really helped at a time of transition for my family. I plan on subscribing and i always brag about how wonderful and helpful it is. The children loved being able to see their assignments and just keep working.
The best product ever!! This morning I was crying trying to figure out how to get everything done. Homeschool Planet made it clear and I realized I was doing much better at homeschooling than I thought. THANK YOU!!
This is the online homeschool planner I’ve been looking and longing for! It needs to be easy to set up–check! It needs to be flexible for those days school doesn’t happen–check! It needs to let me set it up the way I do school, not assuming everyone uses textbooks–check! It needs to have an indicator that we at least started that project–check! If I could remember everything I was excited about this might go on too long. Suffice it to say, if you haven’t been completely satisfied with the other online planners you’ve tried… you may have just found your fit!!
