TOS Secondary Student Planner Review

Our Homeschool Reviews was asked by The Old Schoolhouse (TOS) to review one of their many student planners and I am excited to share with you what I received.  TOS has the following planners available for sale: 

Primary Planner—grades K–3
Secondary School Planner—grades 4–6
Middle School Planner—grades 7–8
High School Planner—grades 9–12

Since I was allowed to choose, I chose the Secondary School Planner for grades 4-6.  

This planner is as much for the student as it is for the parent.  Included is a 2010-2011 monthly school calendar with customizable sheets.  The calendar is wonderful, but what I have liked the best are the Informational Must-Know Lists and Forms.  I was surprised to see that there were several with information that we are studying right now.  Some of my favorite lists are:

The Miracles of Jesus (with Bible references)
Basic Roman Numerals (we just studied this in Math)
History Timeline (nice to have it all in one place)

Some forms I printed out immediately include:

Books Read This Year
Field Trip Log (love this one!)
Bible Memorization Record
Memory Work Record

There are many more and I can't even begin to list them all.   

My Thoughts: For the price, you can't beat what you are getting.  I don't have to spend the time creating all of these forms now, they are all there and I can use them year after year.  Normally I don't like using ink to print out forms, but I can choose how much I want to print and when. 

Find Out More: The Old Schoolhouse Store sells the Secondary School Planner as an e-book for only $9.95.  You can view a sample of it HERE.  

Disclosure: This product was given to Our Homeschool Reviews for free for review purposes, and I do not have to return the product to the vendor. I have received no compensation from it and all opinions and experiences within this review are my own.
