TOS Planner and Another Chance to Win!
I just downloaded the new planner from The Old Schoolhouse a few days ago. I couldn’t believe it when I opened it to find that it had 247 pages! Yes, 247 pages of calendars, articles, home schooling helps, and forms, forms, and oh yeah…more forms!
The TOS Planner (which is in e-book format) begins with calendar pages starting in July 2008 and ending with June 2009. The calendars have large blocks to write or type (yes, I said type because you can actually type right in to the calendar blocks before you print) all of your appointments or assignments. Each month you will also find a featured article, great recipes (24 in all), and home schooling resources. Many articles are written by well known home school writers…do Jeannie Fulbright, Amanda Bennett, Terri Johnson, JoJo Tabares, and Amy Pac sound familiar? And the resources are endless. Here are just a few…
Timeline of Inventions
Countries and Capitals
U.S. Presidents and Their Wives
Seven Wonders of the Ancient/Modern World
Important U.S. Documents from the National Archives
Periodic Table with Elements
My dad happened to be visiting when I first downloaded my planner and I was scrolling through the pages. When I got to the Timeline of Inventions, my 7 year old immediately began quizzing my dad. “Pepaw, do you know what year the refrigerator was invented?…how about crayons?….how about the DVD?”
After the planner pages comes over 70 forms to help you with home school planning and organizing your household. Again I’ll list just a few…
Twelve Year Planning Pages
End of the Year Report Card
Test Score Recording Sheet
Field Trip Planning
Science Lab Sheet
Important Info for Baby Sitter
It goes on and on…
