Homeschool Planet was the school and home management tool I was looking for. It provides a central hub for all my students' assignments, as well as their chores! The program provides great flexibility for those times when illness or unexpected learning opportunities arise, and even does the math and record keeping for me when I'm entering grades. My highschooler likes the assignment list that it can email to her. We're all staying much more on track! (The on-screen widgets are another plus; love the weather, shopping lists, and daily verse!) I ...(more)

I couldn't be more pleased with the free trial and the response I have gotten and in the amount of time it was given. The entire experience had made my first homeschooling month so easy. I love receiving the email reminders so I can stay on track. I just love this program! I am so happy I found it!
A.Smith, Co-op Member
I am a homeschooling mom with 6 children. I graduated my oldest a year ago and currently have an 11th grader, 9th grader, 4th grader, 1st grader, and kindergartner. I've been schooling at home for 12 years and each year I look at what I did over the past year and what I can do to make it better. Yes, even after 12 years I still make changes! One of the things I re-examine each year is the way I schedule the daily lessons. I have not been able to find the "perfect" scheduling application. Excel has been a good planning tool for the past 4 ...(more)

I love this product. I was able to input information for both of my children. The layout is great and it's easy to navigate.
Tesha, Co-op Member
I'm a new subscriber to Homeschool Planet and I love it! I've tried several planning tools for our school, but until I found this product, I didn't feel like I had a resource that could do everything all in one product. My kids like having a daily list where they can check off their progress and I like the convenience of everything being in one place. I'll definitely make this a part of our routine from now on. Only suggestion - please make a place to track curriculum and products used. It would be helpful to know what we already have on h...(more)

We LOVE Homeschool Planet! To start with, it was simple and quick to setup. Much more intuitive and user-friendly than other organizers and programs that I had tried. I was able to get started using it right away, with only watching the instructional video. Each day, I just print out my 3rd and 5th graders planner pages and they get rolling. I have also included their chores in their daily list. For next school year, I am going to include my preschoolers daily activities. It has been a cinch to print out grade reports. There is no better planne...(more)

I really appreciate how Homeschool Planet cuts down my work load as a homeschool mom. After I put in my children's assignments there are only a few brief steps to set up the grading for those assignments. I don't have to have two separate logs of information like I used to do on my own. I enter the information only once. From there I very easily can make grade reports and transcripts. It used to take me SO much longer to do any of these things. I am definitely planning to continue to use Homeschool Planet!
Elizabeth K., Co-op Member
I had serious doubts that this software would fit my needs and actually work! It was pleasantly surprised. Not only does it have all the functionality that I need to plan my year out, it can shift my lessons out and change with my needs. My kids are staying on track of their assignments now that I require them to check off all their boxes before running off to play. I even added chores. To bad it doesn't check to see if they mopped properly around the toliet;)
Pam G, Co-op Member
I do LOVE the program! I have tried to mimic the functions in Excel on my own, but without a lot of success, as it required a lot of maintenance on my part. The auto-create recurring assignments function is a major time saver.

My kids love to check off their assignments on the weekly printed schedule. I can also list their chores for the day all in one place. I have recommended it to other users, especially those with two or more students, and I know I will continue to use it throughout the year.

One area that I always struggled wi...(more)
Crysti S., Co-op Member
I was looking for something that was flexible and would allow me to print off a schedule each week for my kids school assignments. With 3 in different grades, I wanted it to be easy. And, as life always happens, I wanted something that could be adjusted quickly. This fits our family! My kids love it and it keeps them on target while helping them to be responsible.

And, the customer service and care of the Homeschool Planet was amazing. I had asked for support with an issue regarding my trial period and they were incredible.
