Over the years, I’ve tried many (many!) different ways of planning and organizing my homeschool. Between raising a 2E child and teaching, I often found it difficult to keep our focus.
Even though you may not deal with the same challenges, I have a feeling you know what I’m talking about!
If you’re anything like me, you have a fairly sizeable stack of lesson planners that sort of work, but not really. You can tweak them, but it’s a pain – and after a while, you learn to go without.

That’s why I’m really pretty excited about a new set of planners designed by a homeschool mom, for homeschool moms: The Focused Homeschool.
The Focused Homeschool
What I love about these planners is that they’ve got what you need, in the formats that are really useable, but not a ton of extras to distract.
That’s why it’s called The Focused Homeschool!
So…what’s in it, you might ask?
I’m glad you did. Let’s take a look!
The Teacher Planner includes, as you may expect, a variety of planning pages. But it also includes so much more!
Something I love is that they pages and formats are very customizable, but they’re also designed in grayscale. This means they’re very friendly on your printer ink!
Student Focus Pages: Designed to help you keep a running, easy evaluation on each of your student’s strengths, weaknesses, and goals. The progress tracking is quick and saves you a lot of time when planning!
Monthly Planning Pages: These pages are available in two formats, so you can choose what works best for you. As an added bonus, they are undated, so you don’t have to buy a new planner every year!
Monthly Focus Pages: These pages are set up as perpetual planners, allowing you to easily plan and track your focus for the month.
Weekly Focus Pages: These pages are available in three different formats, both lined and unlined, so you can easily pick what works best for you.
Quarterly Focus Pages: Set up as checklists, these pages are easy to use and incredibly customizable. Keep track of your focus and goals at a glance!
Unit Study Planning Pages: Plan out your own unit studies or keep track of pre-made units with ease. There is also a yearly planning page to allow you to sketch out your schedule!
Really, who doesn’t like extras?
- Lesson Mapping Pages allow you to quickly plan how many lessons to assign per day, week, or month for each text or curriculum.
- Weekly Spelling Lists give you a place to track your children’s spelling words. They can even be used as bookmarks, so your children can review them often!
- The Book List helps you quickly track what your children have read this year.
- A Curriculum Wish List helps you keep track of what you need, want, and wish for so you don’t have to try to keep it all in your head!
- The Website & Password Log helps you keep all of your necessary information in one place.
- An Attendance Log allows you to easily keep track of attendance for the year.
- A handy-dandy Field Trip Planner will keep you on track with all the fun!
High School Outline and Plan: This section will help you immensely when it comes to planning out high school! You can keep track of your plans and your child’s accomplishments for all four years. This makes formatting a transcript incredibly easy!
Normally, the Teacher Planner is $12.99 (which is a great deal)…but right now, it’s on sale for $5.99!
Seriously – $5.99 for a planner that you can reformat and reuse for all of your kids, every year!
Since this planner was created by a homeschool mom, you know it’s designed to help your student stay on track and develop focused habits.
To this end, the Student Focus Page is front and center. It is designed to help your student set and track goals, see their growth, and stay focused on their priorities.
Monthly Planning: Because each student is different (and their needs change as they grow), there are three different options available.
Weekly Planning: Four different options, lined and unlined, help you and your student easily customize their planner to their needs!
Quarterly Focus Pages: These pages help your student stay on track with their goals, tasks, and projects on a quarterly basis. This not only teaches them planning and priorities, but also helps them learn to think ahead.
Extras: The Book List and Website & Password Log will help your student stay organized!
And like the Teacher Planner, the Student Planner is designed in grayscale. This makes it both easy to read and easy on your printer ink!
This planner is also normally $12.99, but for the launch period, it is also on sale for $5.99!
And even better, you can download both for a bundle price of $20.99!
You can get the Teacher Planner for $5.99,
the Student Planner for $5.99,
or both for $10.99!
Happy New Year, and here’s to a focused year!
