TOS Planner 2009/2010

Goodness!!! I didn't think it could be done, but the folks at TOS have put together a planner that is bigger and better than last year's.

The 2009 Schoolhouse Planner

2008/2009 Planner had 247 pages
2009/2010 Planner has 374 pages

The additional 73 pages include "upgrades" like the following:
  • A quarterly report (in addition to the "End of Year" report card)
  • A High School Transcript Sheet
  • An additional weekly planning schedule(bringing the options up to 3 styles)
  • Weekly schedules with 2, 3, 4, or 5 children
  • 2 Daily schedule options with 2, 3, 4, or 5 children
  • 2 blank nature journaling sheets
  • 12 blank "journaling " sheets, with a variety of print lines, and full page/half page options
  • 5 new co-op related sheets
  • Library Items sheet
  • Assignments and Due Dates sheet
  • Attendance Chart
  • Community Service Record Sheet
  • 3 Book Report Pages
  • 2 sets of pages devoted to helping you keep a "homeschool book inventory" (one alphabetical, the other by subject)
  • 4 pages devoted to Preschool Planning and Activity Ideas
  • A set of pages to print up for "alphabet practice" using a few handwriting styles
  • Teaching Supplies and Inventory List
  • All-Purpose wish list
The household forms section was updated to include:
  • Emergency Medical Information
  • Home Repair Projects
  • Home Improvement Project Outline
  • A Daily Schedule
  • A Second Grocery list
  • A Monthly Menu Planner
  • A Christmas Card List
  • A Bible Study Notes page
  • Website Login/Password Quick Reference
  • Party Plans
  • Car Maintenance Schedule

This is all in addition to:
  • 4 1-page yearly calendars for 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012
  • The Monthly two-page calendar spreads
  • Monthly Theme Essays (with contributors like Jay Wile, Steve Demme, and Amanda Bennett to name a few), with related "Must know" information lists and resource lists
  • 2 Recipes/Month from the 2008/2009 TOS Crew(Yes... I have one in there! :) )

Check out the full Table of Contents here
Chances are good that if you are looking for a specific homeschool-related "organizational" sheet, or "household" sheet, you will find something that suits you in here.

The planner has pages that are "Customizable", meaning that you can type into them, and then save them, or you can print them up and write in them "The old-fashioned" way...

I love that there are so many forms at the tips of my fingers. I could go searching the net for free forms, but as my 12 year-old keeps reminding me.. "Time is Money, Mom!" :) Also, with the TOS Planner, the forms are cohesive in design, which makes it easier to use, in my opinion, than a scattered smattering of forms from all over the place.

You can read an "overview" of the Planner here and check out what other TOS crew-mates have to say at the TOS Homeschool Crew Homepage.

Get your planner before July 12(the cost is $39) and receive the 2008 Planner Excerpts for free! This will also give you over a month to start filling in your plans for the schoolyear (Instead of running out to Staples and buying an overpriced "planner" that consists of calendar pages and precious little else).
