My Well Planned Day is Anything But

I have been using the Well Planned Day planners for years and I absolutely LOVE them. So much so that, this year, the kids have started using their own student planners.

Despite my best intentions however, my plans never go as I envision. I thereby utilize the Well Planned Day planner book in a somewhat unconventional manner.

If you were to ask me, “Which homeschool philosophy(ies) is your style?”  I would have to say it depends on the day; but we have always had a very relaxed homeschool style. At times, I consider ourselves to be Unschoolers. Other times, I would describe us as Classical homeschoolers, inspired by the philosophies of Charlotte Mason.

Our Well Planned Day

I begin each week with first penciling in the activities and obligations we have outside the home – language classes, music lessons, co-ops, swim team practice, and lodge meetings.  That’s it.

Rather than plan ahead the lessons and activities we will cover each week, I use my Well Planned Day planner as an ongoing record of what we have accomplished. After their Mandarin lessons, for example, I’ll note in the planner the topic of their lesson and the homework for the following session. This also helps me to stay abreast of what they are accomplishing each week.

Recently, I have also begun to use it to keep a running tabulation of the living books the kids have read independently and the audio books we’ve listened to in the car.  This helps me to dive into resources at my disposal (both online and in print) for discussion questions and activities to supplement their reading.

Back to school is coming soon and there’s no better time than now to start getting organized! The Well Planned Day Line of Planners are the perfect resources to help you stay organized and make the most of your time, so you have time for the things that matter most!
