Facts and Activities:
You can also find lists of award winning books, history and government information for both the US and Canada, science charts, and fine arts facts. There are also ideas and activities to keep the youngest members of your family occupied and learning while working with older children.
Keeping It Together:
There is a section for each month with its own theme, ideas, and resources to keep learning fresh and exciting. There are also links to products in the Schoolhouse store that correlate with the month's theme. The themes aren't specific to the month so you could switch them around to meet the current interests of your learners.
Flexibility with Forms:
All of the forms and charts can first be filled out on your computer before printing or simply printed and then filled out by hand. The planner is available in two forms to choose from so you can pick the one that works best for you. It is available as a PDF download for $39.99 and a CD for $44.00.

A Good Buy!
I hear the frugal homeschool parent ask, "But can I justify spending this much on one product for me?" Well, it isn't just for the teacher. You can make your own personalized, custom planners for every member of the family. No need to buy something different for each person, it is all here.
The editors of the Schoolhouse Planner have compiled a treasure trove of resources and put them at your fingertips.
