Homeschool Planet: Online Homeschool Planner Review

Homeschool Planet allows you to schedule multiple students, and subjects. Grading is made easy and right at your fingertips, you may also reschedule assignments right from the dashboard.  Syncing other calendars (Google Calendar) to Homeschool Planet is another feature that is a bonus, you can have all of your calendars in the Homeschool Planet calendar/dashboard. If you are a busy mom like me you can appreciate all of the help and user-friendly dashboard options that this planner has to offer.

Homeschool Planet is mobile as well. Access your planner on your smart phone and see which assignment needs to be completed next, or input a grade. You can access your planner from any mobile device that has an internet browser, you can then bookmark and save to your home screen, this gives you the ability to have your calendar right where you need it most, at your fingertips.  This will solve the problem of having multiple calendar’s and planner’s that many of us have.

I have been a subscriber of Homeschool Planet for at least two years and I will continue to subscribe to this easy user-friendly planner for many more to come. It is by far the easiest planner I have ever used.
