This is my first year homeschooling. I spent the first 3/4 of the year keeping track of lesson plans in an Excel spreadsheet. I worked fine, but had its limits. I saw other homeschool families post about how helpful Homeschool Planet was so I gave it a try. It takes some work to set it up and I’m still learning how to best use it, but I must say that it is a true gamechanger. It makes planning SO MUCH EASIER. It is so dynamic in all the different ways it allows you to create and change your plans as needed. The makers have thought of every contingency and made this tool able agile enough to work with YOU. There’s very little of you having to twist yourself into its system. You can make it work the way you work.
