Top 10 Ideas Checklist for Using A Homeschool Student Planner for Peak Productivity
Today, I would like to share with you how you can use a homeschool student planner for peak productivity. Before I give you my Top 10 ideas for using a student planner for success, let me share a funny anecdote with you.
Children whose minds and bodies are developing at a healthy rate are able to plan and make decisions as early as 5 years of age. Once, I heard a story from a newbie homeschool mother about her 5-year-old son who loved to draw but hated writing essays.
Apparently, for 3 consecutive days, the mother had included essay writing in her son’s daily homeschool routine. On the third day, her son walked up to her and said, “Momma! Why do you keep writing ‘WRITE an essay’ in my blue book? Why can’t I DRAW my essays?” Blue was naturally the color of his daily planner. She had cracked up at his innocent question and promised to make drawings an integral part of his homeschool planning.
I guess the point that I am trying to make is that children can plan their lessons and activities just as well, so sometimes, you should trust their judgment.
Top 10 Ideas Checklist for Using A Homeschool Planner for Peak Productivity
To help your children plan their coursework, I now present my top 10 ideas for using a homeschool student planner.
1. Spend the first few weeks of the homeschool year letting your children make their weekly or monthly student planners from scratch.
2. Ask them to be creative and personalize their homeschool student’s planners.
3. Teach them the purpose of a planner and ask them what they would like to add to their planner.
4. Give them a template for a weekly planner so that they understand what sections must be included.
5. The to-do-list, the assignments, and the daily goals sections are a must-have in all the daily or weekly planners.
6. You can also suggest including a box for daily evaluation so that children too can keep track of their performance.
7. Every day, give your children 30 mins before the starting of lessons and 20 mins before the end of the homeschool to maintain and update their planners.
8. At the end of each lesson, tell them to go through their daily planning so that they can check if they have completed the task and its objectives.
9. Ask the children to have a section for Self-Study.
10. Before dismissing them, assign them one task that they must jot down under the heading of Self-Study and complete it before coming to homeschool the next day.

About Me and Let's Connect!
My name is I-Ping Yeo but I write in my alter ego Ashley Yeo cos when I first started online, I was too shy to be me. Silly! Now that my whole website and brand is built on Ashley Yeo, I am gonna stick with it (cos I am too lazy to change it and too much money has been spent on Ashley Yeo) and spread some sweet cheer!
I am a previously jaded ex-lawyer and now positively charged mompreneur who founded AshleyYeo.com. Ashley Yeo is a “fictional” character who is very different from me in personality. I am formal and boring while Ashley Yeo attempts to live a bit more dangerously but within acceptable boundaries.
I produce and publish content under my brand Ashley Yeo. I produce content mainly about homeschooling, education, digital and online learning, self-care, gratitude, ikigai (Japanese term for “reason to be”), infectious happiness strategies, passion, positivity, planning, and productivity for moms. And I also share boss girl e-commerce strategies I am testing, and resources I am using, on my own small boss girl indie business.
I conjure seriously juicy journals, notebooks, planners, coloring stuff, printables, and pretty kawaii products out of love, peaches, and cream.
I am the author and publisher of the "Big Grateful Heart: 52 Week Gratitude Journal". This is one of my best-selling gratitude journals, and it was a number 1 new release on Amazon as well as on several of Amazon's Top 100 bestseller lists.
I especially love to produce premium printables complementary to your homeschool curriculum, and for your family's positivity and self-care.
