Product: Hey, Mama! Homeschool Planner for 2019/20 Year
About: I just love The Old Schoolhouse® so I was super excited to get the chance to review their new planner, Hey, Mama! Print Homeschool Planner. I mean who doesn't need need a good planner to keep them organized these days? Our very own Gena Suarez is the author of this planner. Hey, Mama! They got you covered if you order quick. We have already sold out of 98% of our print run. Hey Mama Planner is 188 pages long. It is 9"x11" and spiral bound as well. Gena also adds in some wonderful devotional into the planner. They are very encouraging.
Hey Mama Planner has weekly planning pages, monthly goals, semester goals, yearly goals, attendance chart, curriculum planning, reading log, transcript planning and more. The attendance chart is the greatest for here in GA to help track our days completed. I am also in love with the face that there is room for 5 kids. Most large families end up having to buy several planners just to fit all their kids in.
There is plenty of room in all of the sections to be able to write out things in. This is always a problem for me in other planners. I have room for all of my kids lessons as well as being able to have all the record keeping we need to do in one place. The calendar offers plenty of room to write appointments as well as room to write other activities in as well.
Since our new homeschool year has not started yet we have focused on some of the other parts of the planner. Hey Mama! Don't let that make you think I don't have a list of things I am planning on putting down in it. I really like the calendar the best I think. I've never had a planner than had a calendar big enough for me to write in. I usually always print one for each month to write our appointments, homeschool park days and activities in. Now I can have it in the same place as my planner so I don't have to go back and forth with my planner and my binder when planning to see what days are busy. I also am in love with the Hey Mama Planner's devotions and inspiring scripture. I am a Christian and though I strive everyday I know I still fail too. I need and love to see those to uplift me and to remind me there is a brighter day and I am forgiven. The weekly agenda I will use to put what I will be working on weekly with the kids. Since I don't personally have a lot of planning for myself I will use it for their school work lesson planning. Then the space to put the book lists will help us keep track of what we have read for the year.
My kids are not old enough to need to start a transcript but this will come in handy for those that have high schoolers. Also this will make me want to continue to use this planner so when the time comes I can be familiar with it and use it to make my transcripts for the kids. I really think this planner "has it all". It has more writing space than most planners, which I write big so is helpful for me.
I am also a full time college student. I can see this being helpful to me as a mom and student to keep me organized if I had wanted to use it for more me than just my kids studies. It seems like it would be pretty versatile. Hey Mama go check it out!
