The Well Planned Day Planner (July 2012-June 2013) is a compact planner aimed at planning everyday life and homeschool together. The planner begins with pages to keep track of household finances, household duties, and contact information. It even has small (1/4 sheet) blank checklists that can be personalized for each child (up to 4) to keep his household chores and school responsibilities straight. Unfortunately, there is only one set of four sheets, not convenient for a larger family.
Next, this planner has a page for a teacher schedule and then pages for making a class plan for each student: subjects, expenses, and schedule. The main thing to point out here is that this planner is designed for up to four students. After the class plans and semester goals, the planner is primarily divided into months. Each month begins with a monthly calendar and a place to list books to read for each student, field trips, and monthly bills. Each month contains an article intending to offer encouragement to homeschooling mothers, and a page of six shopping list blanks that can be filled out and torn along perforated lines to take to the store. From here, the month is divided by weeks. Each week begins on Monday and each day of the "work week" (Monday-Friday) has labeled spaces for the core subjects plus Bible to write down plans or work performed. There are four lines, presumably intended for four students. There is not much space on each line to record details, so any writing must be small. There are a few extra lines besides the core subjects but not many. For each week, there are also spaces for "Weekly Priorities" and "Dinner Menu".
Other features of The Well Planned Day Planner: Just before December, there is a "Holiday Organization" set of pages that is really a lifesaver! At the end of each semester, there are pages to document attendance and weekly grades for each of four students. At the end of the planner, there are cardstock-weight report cards for documenting the year's grades by semester.
This will be my second year using The Well Planned Day Planner. It works for our family, and I find it easy to keep with me throughout our school day to document what we have done throughout the day. There is not a lot of space for detail in planning, and I found that I used the space designed for four students to document the work that my two students performed. Sometimes, I needed even more space than that. Having said that, I do find that this planner is exactly what I need.
One last thing to note: This is a Christian planner. The encouragement articles are overtly Christian, and there is a "Weekly Catechism" section each week with a question from the Westminster Shorter Catechism.
