There are literally close to one million free printable planners available on the internet. Search Pinterest, and you’ll find out that I’m not exaggerating by much. However, I can never quite find THE ONE, ya know.?They’re either kind of functional but not pretty, the website has one million and one ads and pop-ups and feels like spam, or they just don’t quite suit my needs… I am forever a tinkerer.
I had previously created a planner for my big kids. I wanted one that helped us track grades and attendance, that had enough slots for a Charlotte Mason education, and had one week on one page. I also created one for myself that included space for both ministry and work responsibilities, home responsibilities, and of course homeschooling- because so many homeschool moms do “all of the above.” (If you are a current subscriber, those are both already on the Organization page in the Homeschool Resource Library.)
Now, I was left with a need for my little ones. As I’ve walked through writing both Gentle + Classical Nature and The Gentle + Classical Preschool Level 2, I knew I needed ONE planner to bring those two programs together and reflect the schedules set forth in both programs. BUT ALSO, I wanted to make a cute weekly planner that would work for pretty much anyone’s needs in the early years, so I made 4 variations. I created my IDEAL planner for both Gentle + Classical programs, then I worked backward and simplified and “generalized” it so that anyone using any program could benefit from it.
