Remember I have some free forms on my closed facebook group JUST for loyal followers
Why offer just these pages?
My purpose in making this Glam It Up package is to give you just a few pages that are matching and that will jump start you to create the perfect planner.
It is not my intention to make every page you may want because then the power to create what you need each year leaves you.
The Cover Page
The Inside Title Page
The strongest feature of the 7 Step Homeschool Planner is to empower you to choose exactly what you need and to avoid one download of only matchy matchy pages that are both boring when not mixed and match with other pages and that are possibly useless.
Like me, you want your planner to stay unique and to build it with the needs of your children in mind.
With a basic framework, like the Glam It Up package, you can still add both free pages and forms you purchase at each step to create an awesome planner.
The Unique One of Kind Tab Top Dividers
With this purchase, you get both photos, which are blank, and prefilled tab top dividers (first photo below). You decide whether you want to use the ones I created or make your own following my instructions below.
The premade tabs are filled in with these subjects; Calendars, Goals, Lesson Plans and Notes.
Why just those sections? Because they are the most general.
For example, both calendars and my two page spread appointment keepers can go in the Calendar section along with my free planning your school year forms. Under Goals can be a scope and sequence, teacher’s or student’s schedules, or even grade keepers. Under Notes, you can journal, keep field trip plans or even curriculum resources.
However, with the blank photo pages that come with this download (second photo below) and following my instructions on my blog post where I teach you how to type over photos, you can create your own sections AND make as many sections as you want by printing the tabs over and over again.
Few Extra Tips on Printing, Cutting and Binding the tabs.
In your download, you will notice that I say to cut away the white area at the top only. Then place the tab tops in your binder in the correct location.
The important thing to remember when you bind it is to be sure you pull the tabs up and that they stay sticking out at the top.
It doesn’t matter that the tab top page is not full length when you go to bind it. They coil bind just fine.
It makes it a bit more time consuming for the person doing the binding, but if you ask them to mind that detail, it doesn’t take long at all. Besides you will have the exact sections you want and that is a perk worth taking time to do.
Two Attendance Charts
Why two? Because everybody starts their year differently. One form has the semesters filled in beginning in my usual style of year round like all of my forms here, which is from July to June.
The other form is blank in case you start school in a different month. Then you can fill in the semester that is your first, second and summer semester.
In addition, you get a photo copy of each page so that if you want to edit them following my same instructions above where I show you how to do that on my blog post, you can choose that option too.
180 UNDATED Lesson Planning Pages
These pages are my signature style pages meaning they have stood the test of time and now have been redesigned to be updated and modern.
Look at the fine differences I have made between them and my free ones:
Besides the fact the lesson planning pages are in hot colors now;
- Each 5 days, the lesson planning number changes color so that you can easily track when you have homeschooled a week;
- Each page now has a 4 box section at the top so that anything you need to remember, want to track or just list can be noted at the top;
- Each page now has a notes section at the bottom for more info you need to keep up with;
- The dotted lines used for writing have been dimmed a bit;
- Each page has been basically redesigned at the top to allow a small place for the date; and
- Each page now has content subjects clearly labeled at the bottom so that you understand the difference in prioritizing your day by keeping the skill subjects at the top and planning the content subjects at the the bottom.
IMPORTANT: How to make the pages editable for you?
I thought long and hard when I created this package and wanted to give you the ability to edit as much as you could.
So that is why your download includes photos of the cover, inside title page, attendance sheets and the tabs.
Teaching you how to edit those pages for your exact needs by following the instructions on my blog post here where I show you how to put text over a photo, you can TRULY make your planner unique.
The lesson planning pages do not have photos, are only .pdf and are not editable in order to maintain the integrity of my creation and document.
Again, though the subjects listed and form is time tested because it includes the 4 general subjects for language arts, which are grammar, reading, writing and spelling and then math is a separate listing.
