Are you looking for lesson planning & tracking solutions? Here are a few options to check out…

  • Homeschool TrackerMy personal favourite in activity tracker is Homeschool Tracker. This is a all-in one record keeping solution. It offers planning and record designed to adapt to your particular homeschooling style and many features are customizable. Lesson planning and organizing needn’t consume a great part of your day. Homeschool Tracker offers a fully functional FREE Basic Tracker download, the Homeschool Tracker Plus Version with additional features as well as an Online tracking solution. You can read my full review here.
  • EduTrack ~ I have  briefly used EduTrack trial software, but found Homeschool Tracker more user friendly & easier to work with. An added benefit with EduTrack is it’s built-in certificate maker, but for me that didn’t warrant the price for me to purchase the full version.

Online Tracking Solutions

  • Schedtrack Homeschool Tracker ~ is a FREE online lesson planner, scheduler, and tracking system rolled into one. The heart of the system is the automated scheduling of activities that frees you from the headache of rescheduling everything once an activity/lesson is missed. I used this when we first started homeschooling in 2010, but due to our internet connection being down whenever I wanted to update my records I became frustrated & went searching for an offline tracker.
  • A Simple Plan ~ offers an online calendar, lesson plans, curriculum lists, assignments, grading & library for FREE.

OldSchool Calendars to Print or Purchase

  • I’m not one for carrying around diaries myself, but the planners that come FREE with membership to this site, are absolutely stunning. On the downside, however, printing them may become pricy if you’re not equipped with a back-to-back capable printer.
  • A Simple Plan print version.
