Being a Review Crew Member for The Old Schoolhouse definitely has its advantages, and one such advantage is being one of the first people to try out the brand new Hey Mama! Print Schoolhouse Planner 2016-2017 by none other than The Old Schoolhouse

For this review, we received one Hey Mama! Print Schoolhouse Planner 2016-2017



How we are using this:

I much prefer pen and paper for my planning needs, but it always seems like homeschool planners are dedicated to multiple children. Since we are in the minority with only one child I often find a lot of wasted space in planners. That is not the case with the Hey Mama! Print Schoolhouse Planner 2016-2017. It has room for 5 children, or you can use the tabs as weekdays and use the last as a note's tab. In other words, the rows and columns are not labeled so you are free to tweak as needed! 



I very much like the "Notes" Section for each month. It's a great way to keep track of things as they come up, or memorable moments as they happen!


And of course, the devotions are fantastic and so meaningful!


Overall: 

All in all, I find this to be a fantastic planner that is easy to use with a great layout. I appreciate the hardwork that was put into designing this planner so that families with multiple children can use it with ease, and families with single children will not be faced with a lot of wasted space. I love the yearly and monthly at a glance calendars, these make it easy to see what each month looks like. I also love the fill in calendars so I can jot down important dates and appointments. the Notes pages are a great journal tool, and allow me to jot down funny things that happened or memorable moments. The devotions seem to pop out at me just when I need to see them the most. The binding is very nice, and allows the pages to turn freely. The planner is well made, and feels quite sturdy. I do not worry about pages being easily ripped out. I highly recommend this planner! 

The Old Schoolhouse is being very generous and allowing me to share a very special coupon code with all of you. This will allow you to purchase the planner for $19.00 including shipping for US readers, or $10.00 off your total for international!

Does The Old Schoolhouse Hey Mama! Print Schoolhouse Planner 2016-2017 Pass My 4 Ingredient Test?

1.) Customization: Is it easily adaptable? Can we customize it to fit “us?” Can we modify or set our own schedule? Can we take breaks, jump ahead, or flat out skip?

This is totally customizable for those with multiple children or those with only 1. The tabs are left empty so you can label them as you like!      

2.) Value: Is it long lasting? Will it cover multiple grade ranges? Are you locked in to one specific grade level? Are there hidden fees?
There are year at-a-glance calendars for 2016, 2017, AND 2018. This is great for homeschooling kids of all grades!  
 
3.) Attention span: Is it boring? Is it engaging? Is it varied enough for ADHD? Does it last too long?

 The daily devotions are great and inspiring. They truly help to motivate! 

4.) Does it tie into other things we already have.

This planner works not only as a planner, but also as an educational tool!
