UPDATED FORMAT — CD-ROM!
Carolyn Morrison & Jennifer Morrison Leonhard
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.
