Review of the Hey Mama Schoolhouse Planner for 2016-2017

Hey Mama! Schoolhouse Planner 2016-2017 Review

If you have been a reader here long then you know I am a plannerholic! I love planners and I especially have a fond love for paper planners. Today's planner is the Hey Mama! Print Schoolhouse Planner 2016-2017 from The Old Schoolhouse.
Hey Mama! Schoolhouse Planner 2016-2017 Review
I absolutely love the cover of the new Hey Mama planner! It is so nostalgic and brings visions of the hard working yet simple days of the past. Inside you will find 196 pages of spiral bound planner goodness - the biggest one yet! The covers are made of thick card stock and feel like they have laminate on them. This planner begins with July 2016 and runs through June 2017 so it's perfect for the beginning of a new school year. 
 
What I love most about this planner are the Hey Mama inspiration and encouragement letters. I have always been so encouraged by these on Facebook and to have them right there as I am planning is so uplifting! Before you begin each monthly section, you will find a Hey Mama note and a monthly notes page.


Inside you will find the typical monthly and weekly planning pages. The monthly pages are dated but the weekly pages are not which I love! I love that the weekly pages aren't dated because we all take off time at different intervals and if those pages were dated they would just remain blank during our break week creating wasted pages.

Remember those beautiful pictures included on the cover? Well, inside you find out the history behind each of those items! I thought that was such a fun and fascinating touch making this planner truly unique.

Also included are several sections for monthly goals, semester goals, and yearly goals. I love the categories given for breaking down each goal.

The attendance charts could not be simpler to complete. Simply check off the school days as you complete them. One of the requirements of our state is to keep up with attendance so I like to complete my sheets when I do my weekly planning sessions.

These are the pages that I am currently in the planning stages for the next school year. The yearly calendars included are for 2016, 2017, and 2018. I've marked my husband's long days off and marked holidays so far.


The curriculum planning sheets are a great resource to keep all of your information in one place. I have to tell you that it has been so weird to only be planning for two this year though instead of three!
Another unique feature of this planner is that it includes many academic pages including writing prompts, the thirteen colonies, timeline of inventions, US Presidents and their wives, branches of the federal, state, and local governments, and so many more! 

Other forms not shown include information on how to create academic transcripts, a blank transcript (which can be copied), sheets to record books read, homeschooling contact list, checklist sheet of skills learned and other courses. See sample pages for more details. 

 We are about to head into our 9th year of homeschooling and I cannot think of any other resources you might need that this planner doesn't include unless it would be just some extra blank note pages. 
 
This planner can be purchased here and sells for $29 in the US. There are also versions for Canada and International.
