Today, I am taking time to answer the top 5 questions that I get frequently about the 7 Step free Homeschool Planner.
I always, always appreciate your questions and because I don’t like you having to wait a long time for answers, I am rounding frequently asked questions here.
7 Step Free Homeschool Planner
And because I have a method to my madness, I hope these answers help you.
ONE/ What if I begin my school in a different month than when your printables begin in July and end in June?
I understand you may begin your school in August, September or even October, however, that is not when you begin to plan.
When setting up my organized system many years ago, it was and still is my goal to help you stay organized. This means that generally, like most teachers, we should begin our planning months before we start teaching our kids.
However, because you get a full 12 months, it doesn’t matter when you choose to begin your school, you can still use my forms by just starting on the month when you begin to plan.
By maintaining one month to begin (July) and one month to end the year (June, my system stays uniformed as I create hundreds of free forms across the 7 steps for you.
This would not be possible if I created forms to begin a year with May, June, August, September or even October because there is no way I could give you so many wonderful options.
TWO/ Do you create other sizes like A5, personal or mini pages?
No. Most of my audience, like me, wants all the room they can possibly get to write down lesson plans. My planner utilizes as much as I can get on a regular size page and still leave room for coil binding.
I can see when you have only one child, you may not want all that room and I have a Unit Study Planner that has a unique lesson planning page which would work well for one child, but it is regular paper size.
THREE/ What if I don’t have a fancy printer? Can I still create this?
Absolutely! I have used three very different printers through the years and the least and most inexpensive one does just as great of a job as my fancy HP one I had albeit the smaller one takes a bit more time.
Right now, I am still using the portable CANON PIXMA iP110 Wireless Mobile Printer I used when we moved overseas.
I still love it and have changed the way I do things.
Before we moved, I had an office in my house. But when we traveled and stayed in different hotels in different countries, I got use to plugging up my printer anywhere I was sitting at and have loved the flexibility of moving around.
FOUR/ I’m having problems with my download. Some of the numbers or boxes are missing. What causes that?
Most of the time, when your download is not printing correctly, it can be traced back to a problem with reader and browser compatibility.
Too, it may be because you use the default reader for the MAC. Adobe is the best reader.
If you’re still having problems, use a different browser. This almost always clears up the problem.
FIVE/ Do you recommend a binding machine or products for binding the planner?
Though I love all the easy binding machines now offered, the whole foundation of this planner is a DIY project. This means using things that are easily found or relatively inexpensive, which is coil binding.
It shouldn’t take buying fancy office supplies to do that.
You certainly can invest in cool products, but again, my goal is that this planner can be made by anybody with minimal products to purchase.
