Homeschool Planners with Rows

A row planner uses a different planning strategy. Rather than entering lesson plans in daily chunks, enter them in weekly or greater chunks.

2 column plannerquestionWhat are row planners?
I named these planners "row" because the places in which lesson plans are written are shaped more like rows than blocks. Also we can have what I might call split rows and an example of that can be found in the column planners, specifically the 2 Column Planners. The previously written sentence is useless information and if you ever asked me about split row planners, I'd probably say, What? Then you'd say, column planners, then I'd say, okay.

questionWhat good is the row shape for lesson planning?
Although there are several ways the row planner can be used, I will list two.

1. Row planners lend themselves easily for use as a daily planner.

2. While the row planner can be used for day by day plans, row planners can be used for grouped plans. What I mean is this:
Instead of writing Monday-Lesson 1,Tuesday-lesson 2, (and so forth). The Grouped Plans will be written like this:
This *week complete Lessons 1-4 and ... .
*week could be something else such as a set of dates or a term length

planner surrounded by a calendar

This is an image of the top of the planner. The weekends are gray. The months are noted somewhere along the line of dates. There is a line instead of a worded header. Each file will start with a month and end around 5 months later. The beginning date may or may not be at the first of the month and the very last date may or may not be the last day of the month. Use these for a daily planner, weekly planner, or some other type of time-span planner. All of the files in this style are PDF. The font used is Garamond.

It does not have in any way indicate a week, but a date can be added to the form. This could be used as a daily assignment sheet or a weekly assignment sheet. It can be used for a more detailed assignment sheet if used as a daily homeschool planner.

Garamond Font

The font used on the "Surrounded by a Calendar" row planner is Garamond and should look nice in a planner book that uses files from any of my other planner filler files that use Garamond. Quite a few of them use Garamond. Here is a list:
