CD-ROM: Guilt-Free Homeschooling UNplanner
Carolyn Morrison & Jennifer Morrison Leonhard
The Guilt-Free Homeschooling UNplanner is available on CD-ROM with PDF files consisting of unique planning and record-keeping modules that work for everyone from the non-planner to the uber-planner. These infinitely adaptable forms can be mixed and matched to fit each family’s situation. Use only the sections that you prefer and use their features as you wish to create a customized planner that meets your needs. Outline your plans by subject or by time (full year, month-at-a-time, or week-at-a-time) or use the combination of modules that best fits your homeschooling style and your family’s needs. Many of these forms can be used as attendance records for the states requiring them and can be vital in creating high school transcripts for college applications. You will most likely not use all of the modules at the same time or for all activities—that would just be overkill.

As a struggling new homeschooler, I looked at every planner that I could find, but I never found one that fit me. Most of them included sections I would never use and overlooked records I did want to keep. We learned early in our homeschooling career that a lot of learning was not plan-able and that life often inserted lessons on which we had not planned. My desire was to spend less time planning and have more time for the actual learning, so I began to develop my own charts for keeping track of what we did, and the Guilt-Free Homeschooling UNplanner came into being. These forms make record-keeping very simple: some things can be planned in advance, while others can be recorded after-the-fact with equal ease. All forms can be punched for convenient storage in a 3-ring binder. Each purchaser of this CD may make unlimited copies of these files for personal use for the duration of ownership, making the Guilt-Free Homeschooling UNplanner the last planner you will ever need to buy.
