Thanks for dropping by! I have more Charlotte Mason inspired posts here. You’ll find books, conversations on nature study, habits, and more!
Every year I have enjoyed making my own planner – and while they aren’t perfect I have learned a lot each round, and they get closer and closer to what I want in my own planner.
We follow a Charlotte Mason style education for our children, and so a Charlotte Mason homeschool planner is what I have been after.
This year I printed mine, double sided, on my black and white printer on 32lb white paper. The slightly heavier paper makes a huge difference!
I print mine at home, other than the color cover since we don’t have a color printer. I have it bound at Office Depot for about $3.50. It’s been cheaper some years as they sometimes run coupons. I have debated buying my own binding machine, but honestly it seems like way too much work. I would have to bind 20 things just to break even on the price and I like not having the responsibility of lining everything up.
Clicking on any of these images will open it up larger and allow you to save and/or print any files you would like to use.

My 2016/2017 book is complete, and the pages have been added above. You can see a video of my planner here
A little about some of the pages I chose to make for my Charlotte Mason Homeschool Planner
Questions for each Season – I have used this sheet for years and finally decided it should be a part of my homeschool planner – the questions are not specific towards homeschooling, but as a homeschool family life and school are hard to divide and I think it will be perfect having this included in the planner itself. It’s been an invaluable evaluation to have done a few times each year.
Monday – Friday planner – the nitty gritty details of how our week will play out. Two sheets are included as there are two different quotes. I arranged mine so that the two facing pages each had a different quote.
Habit Planning Sheet – Habit training has been invaluable in our home, but it doesn’t happen by itself! This is to record ideas, planning and other thoughts on it.
Subjects Sheet – This is my planning sheet as I decide what we will be doing for each subject.
Charlotte Mason Focus Sheet – Divided into 6 terms (print it twice) this sheet is for planning out composer, artist, poet, handicraft, etc.
Daily Planner – For sanity – meal planning, schedule planning, goals and chores for the day – my daily docket!
Lined pages – This has been a must have in my previous books! Just blank spaces to record ideas.
Charlotte Mason Quote – this page starts the book (and the reverse side is the first page of the two month calendar spread)
Count Your Blessings – it’s easy to forget them. Keeping track over the years has been a great blessing in and of itself.
Recipes I am Good At – Really, this has been a life saver over the years too! And while it isn’t homeschooling, it is all related – having easy to make meals that I am good at and usually have on hand is GREAT for last minute meal scrambles.
