The 2009 Bigger & Better SCHOOLHOUSE PLANNER

The 2009 Schoolhouse Planner is available for purchase NOW!
As co-creator of the planner, I don’t feel it’s fair for me to “brag it up” here.

“What we want is–not the best thing that can be had at the lowest possible price–but a thing suitable for our purpose, at a price which we can afford to pay and know to be just.” ~Charlotte Mason

  1. I am glad to be apart of The Old Schoolhouse Crew!! It's exciting to read everyone's blogs, and we (children and I) are ready to learn! 🙂

  2. All I can say is WOW! I was shocked and amazed at everything that the planner contained. I'm really excited about starting the July 2009 theme!

  3. I absolutely loved this planner. It will help our family and our homeschool be lifted out of crazy mode. Tks for giving me the chance to review it all.

  4. Thank you TOS! I love this planner and am getting more excited about our new school year as I use this! So much to it. Enjoying getting to know other members of the crew and reading their reviews as well!


  5. I had such a great time doing this review, my FIRST for TOS!! I really love this planner and plan to use it all school-year.

  6. Loved all the forms! It was fun to review (and will make "forms" easier this year!) I'm sure I'll add lots to my favorites I already use!

  7. I find the unique forms section of this planner and the ability to print customized versions of them for my family extremely motivating and valuable. Get ready for the best school year ever with a little help from The OldSchoolhouse!

  8. With much fear and trepidation, I just posted my first review. Now I'm going to go and learn from the others how to do it right :-).

  9. Wow, that was a project! There's so much in the planner that I wanted to try before writing about it! Now I will have time to really USE the planner.

    But first, I want to read some other reviews.

  10. This was fun, but I'm glad to be done. Formatting from Word almost killed me! (OK slight exaggeration) I have to find some easier way to edit 🙂 Now I can go and read all the other reviews. Didn't want mine to sound like anyone else's by osmosis! I just know I will kick myself about all the things I forgot to say about this wonderful resource!

  11. I HEART the new planner! I'm motivated to make my BIG notebook…starting today! This was a great item to 'kick-off' our new season!

  12. Hi! What a wonderful planner! Aside from some computer issues my review is up for glancing 🙂 Very exciting to be with all of you!

  13. Didn't know how to link only to the one post on my blog the first time I signed in (#102), now I have it right on #107. Can someone help me get rid of #102, please?


  14. until next year's comes out!

    This has so many forms we are now using in our family and loving. The few I have not found in this planned I want, I let TOS know about and they are great at using your feedback in future products, so I"m sure I'll want next year's planner too.
