My 7 Step Homeschool Planner here is not the only planner I have been working on through the years. I have a Free Home Management Binder and Free Student Planner. I think it’s important to not overwhelm visitors to my site with my planners and I find that by keeping some of the other ones at my sister site helps to keep them organized.
Remember that any free printable here can be mixed and match with the Home Management Binder and Student Planner. Too, I have updated the Student Planner and offer basically 2 Types. One type is found on my sister site and the other one is here.
The links are below the graphics.

Free Student Planner
Also here on my site, I have a free Girly Girl (yes that means a Manly Man planner will be coming too. Just please don’t email me and ask when because my creativity is not planned) undated planner that you can download below.
Read How to Use it.
Too, I love this planner so you can even use it for the calendar section of your planner if you want to.
I wanted something for your kids that they would hopefully think is smokin’ hot and would breathe some life into their organizational efforts. Color and pizzazz do it all the time for me in my curriculum planner and well I want something special for them too. Just like learning, the organization itch should start early and we should be passing on some of our organizational habits to our kids. Like us, they want things that are pretty too and so finally, I have one set created as your kids and my kids have been on my mind.
Curriculum Pages for Planner
So this is the first of two sets. Girls first and I started with a set just for them. And even though I don’t have any girls, though one day far, far, far off in the future, I hope to have the most sweetest daughter-in-laws ever, I know you probably have one or two sweet girls.
With them in mind, I have created the first set of undated calendar-like pages called Girly Girl.
Kids have such unique needs and helping my boys to manage their deadlines and appointments, I have created a set with them in mind.
Oh sure, if you want this for your planner, please use it. I just created it a little bit different and more whimsical. Here is how to use it:
- First, it is undated so that means it can be used year after year. Well maybe what is first is the fact that it is colorful. Lots and lots of color. You know my obsession with colorful planners. Too, it starts with July and goes through June just like all my year round homeschooling planning forms do.
- Then, it has a column to the right of the number to fill in the weekdays for that month. Let your girls do that because once they start writing in their planner, they can claim ownership. Just use the first letter or two of the weekday like this: “M” is Monday, “Tu” is Tuesday, and etc.
- The next section for dates is different than our needs as teachers who plan. It can be used to track deadlines, dates, or appointments if they have them or to fill in about field trips or things they want to journal. It is a lot more flexible because sometimes they need more of a to-do list or a space to write about how they feel or about events coming up. Also, one things that I notice with my boys is that they like to fill in events or journal after they happen. So they really are not different than us in that respect. They probably have more to say and we as planners, have more things to fill in about upcoming events. So that is the slight difference and my form reflects that little tweak.
- So the larger box on the far right is big enough to track their notes for the week. They can use a check off system by checking the colorful circles or just write down what they need to remember. This type of place allows your child to track his assignments. As your kids get older, I know you will be assigning long term projects and part of shuffling adult size decisions is learning now to track them and write them down.
The calendar-like pages are more like a place to track tasks, notes and a space to keep their own calendar.
In the years past, I had just printed off a 2 page spread for the curriculum planner for my boys, but again students needs are quite different than ours.
They also need a place to doodle and this calendar-like set is so much more flexible. There is a box at the top of each month too where that they can doodle or they can use that box for writing in priorities for that month, depending on their age.
As your child gets older, priorities become a must as they juggle volunteering, working, learning to drive and doing school.
I love this new set for the girls and you know what that means. Yep, the Manly Man set is coming next for the guys.
I hope your daughters perk up a bit with their planners and again, if you like it, you know I love ya, so knock yourself out if you find this fits a need you have. If you are going to use it, share with me how you think you will use it. I would love to hear how you use it too.
