The Charlotte Mason Complete Homeschool Printable Planner
You need a way to ensure you are including each subject needed for a comprehensive Charlotte Mason or Classical education for your children each week. Something easy to use, thorough, and a bonus if it’s pretty.
Born through a need to plan our homeschool more efficiently and to make sure that I had a way to track our hours, subjects, and progress, I am delighted with how efficient, on track, and lovely the planning of our homeschool has become! As a busy working homeschool mom, I need all the help I can get to stay on track and get the important things done.
There is now an optional add-on download included with this purchase. The quarters are changed to terms, and the subjects have been slightly adjusted to better fit the models of Charlotte Mason PNEU schools per reader requests. The original Charlotte Mason planning sheets are still in the main download, this is just an option for readers who follow these models or who use semesters rather than quarters.
*Please note that this is a digital product. You will receive a PDF download upon completion of purchase. No physical product will be received.*

How I assembled my own
Why is quarterly so great?
- You take the year, subjects, planning, and resource gathering in chunks instead of one overly large bite that can cause overwhelm, intimidation, and choking on your freshly microwaved coffee.
- You can do year round quarters, 9 week quarters, 6 week quarters, or whatever style of quarters fits your homeschool best.
- The pressure of trying to conquer and entire curricula is eliminated.
- You have wiggle room to move ahead or review concepts as needed in your next quarter after reviewing what was accomplished in the quarter you are wrapping up. This allows for you to keep each subject aligned with each child’s specific needs without the pressure of feeling “behind” or the worry of getting “too far ahead”.
- If you like unit studies (we do!), you can structure each quarter around a unit or make sure to include a week of unit study into each quarter.
