Having a student planner for your kids is more for you than for them. It makes for an easy place to write in and check off their assignments, creating a regular routine and set of expectations. It also helps you to be more organized and makes getting the school day underway smoother since you can send them off to check their planner instead of trying to come up with an assignment on the fly. Besides, I’ve found my kids like to know what the expectations are right up front, so they know when they’ll be done.
- Weekly assignment/planner sheets
- Daily assignment/planner sheet
- Reading record
- Goal sheets
- Chore sheets
- Grade tracker
- 3 different cover options (as shown in upper right)
The planner is designed for full size, 8.5 x 11 inch, sheets of paper. Many of the pages have editable fields so that you can type in the information that stays the same from day to day like “math” in the Daily Work checklist for example. The font for the planner is set to “Century Gothic” to match the font on the rest of the page, but if you do not have that font installed your computer will select another font. Century Gothic is free to download from several font sites. The pages come in color or black and white.
Each page is a unique file so you easily print just the sheets you need in just the numbers you need them.
The weekly planner pages are aligned right and left with a larger center gutter and so take care in printing. We recommend you print the even numbered pages and then print the odd numbered pages on the reverse side. Test the process with one sheet of paper to make sure you are positioning the paper correctly in your printer before you begin. The pages that are designed as two page spreads have a blank leading page, do not print the blank page.
