Charlotte Mason Complete Homeschool Printable Planner
You’re here because like me, you’re passionate about giving your kids a quality Charlotte Mason or Classical education. We want to make sure we’re including every essential subject, plus setting aside time for enrichment opportunities, too. But how do we do that and keep the house picked up, get dinner on the table, and do all the things?
If you’re a mom like me, you also worry that if you don’t plan well, you’ll simply miss the essential subjects as well as the enrichment opportunities you’d like to include each day. It’s stressful!
So how did I finally fix my scheduling woes? I knew I needed a way to track our hours, subjects, and progress. After creating the planner, I am delighted with how efficient, on track, and lovely the planning of our homeschool has become!
You, too, can solve all of those worrisome scheduling problems, make sure you’re including every subject for each student, and do so with efficiency and beauty, to boot! The Charlotte Mason Complete Homeschool Planner practically does the work for you.
Without a well-designed planner created especially for the Charlotte Mason and Classical home educator, those worrisome gaps and scheduling issues will continue to sabotage even the best attempts.
You will be the hero in your homeschool with the planner that not only saves the day, it can save the school year!

How I assembled my own
Need tips for printing your Charlotte Mason Complete Homeschool Planner? Here you go!
- 60 pound paper prints well and binds well for the covers and divider pages. For the planning pages, I prefer 32 pound paper. It is sturdy enough to last and to prevent much bleeding through if you like heavier inked pens. I love using the Pilot G2 gel pins.
- Have your finished planner bound at an office supply store, or get a 3-ring binder to hold it. I prefer the binding option because I like that it is lighter to carry around that way. Mine was bound in under 30 minutes with a clear cover black backing, and spiral binding at Office Max OR
- Print all your sheets at 84% size and punch them to fit Happy Planner rings. There is a lot of cutting down paper this way, but the size of the planner is much more manageable.
- Printing double sided on the weekly planning pages works well and saves paper.
- I printed a mother’s journal page on the reverse side of the monthly pages so I could record things that happen that month.
- Have the Habits list included at the end of your binding so it is always a handy reference.
- The note booking pages, field trip records, reading logs, and portfolio pages may all be kept in a 3 ring binder or printed as necessary. I will be keeping a 3-ring binder for each boy to hold their work, reading logs, field trip records, writing samples, photographs of art pieces, etc., as well as a copy of the hourly log for the year for my own records as Georgia does not require portfolios, but your state might.
