I love homeschooling! It is something I am passionate about, and I know that it was the best thing for my family. Now that doesn't mean that it hasn't had its bumps along the way! I like to plan things out from the start so I am sure that everything is set up....that is why Homeschool Planet is so wonderful.
When I was given the opportunity to review Homeschool Planet by Homeschool Buyers Co-op, I was pleasantly surprised at what I found. This product is amazing! Think about it this way, it is a Homeschool lesson planner, family calendar, gradebook, attendance tracker, and individual lesson scheduler all rolled into one amazing product! What the Homeschool Buyers Co-op did with Homeschool Planet was take all the needs of a Homeschool Family and put technology to work on our behalf. We are able to cut down our planning and tracking time because of the way they have utilized technology for us! Well, as my mom used to say......"How do you like them apples?".........I have to admit it mom, I like 'em just fine!!!! LOL!
How I Used This Product:
Homeschool Planet you are able to click between screens and have all the information for your Homeschool at your fingertips!
You also have the ability to set the parameters of the program. When you load each person into the program, you tell the program what sections that person of the product they can see. For instance, I set up my girls so they can see their daily grades ......but, of course, not alter or add them.
Our household has two students and one adult child that works odd shifts. What I like about this program, is we are able to set it up so our adult child can see our family calendar, including all the assignments that each of her sisters has. That keeps her involved in our family and what is going on with her sisters! #helpful!
My Bottom Line:
Well, first off let me just say.....You may have noticed that this product is awesome by the earlier portion of my blog......So just in case you didn't, I don't want there to be any confusion.........
It is awesome!!!!!!!
I have been homeschooling my girls for four years and the planning, scheduling, tracking is the hardest part. I love homeschooling....it's the paperwork that I have a problem with!! Are any of you with me on that one???
This takes the pain out of paperwork!! YAY!!!!
