Term & Subject Planners  

This is where to find the quarter and semester planners.

These are the planners I made to use for my children's upper elementary and high school years. See Using the Quarter Planner for examples of using this type of planner.

Quarter Planners 

Quarter planners have a 5 x 9 grid which implies 45 days or one quarter of a school year.

This planner is the original *un-keyed planner. The file prints on one sheet of paper and has 9 rows and 5 columns.

*What is a Keyed Planner?
A keyed planner has coordinate reference marks such as I, II, II, etc across the top and either numbers or letters down the side. The first block would be "IA" and if you needed to record a grade on a grade sheet, you could use the coordinate reference such as: Math IA, 90%.

The Yellow Planner

Prints on 6 sheets of paper or 3 on both sides.
Each page is a six week planner which can be used for any subject. The spaces are labeled: week one, week two .. etc..
In the lesson plan areas, one space is labeled "reading" and the space underneath is unlabeled and may be used for lab, projects, or something else. Under each week is a section for comments, supply list or whatever you need to use it for. This planners are designed after the format that I created for my Exploring Creation with General Science lesson plans.
