Scheduling and Planning

I'm putting together my curriculum for the fall semester and I am looking for a good planner to use. What are you ladies using? I can't decide if I want to use a weekly planner or plan by subjects. Any suggestions? My DD will be 3.5 years old, but with 2 smaller ones at home I know if I don't have a plan she will end up watching Leap Frog DVDs all day.

We use a Charter School that gives me a lesson plan that covers a month. From that  Ipick and choose what I'm actually going to cover. I then use an excel spreadsheet that I made to break it down by week for each of the kids.

I made my own paper planner based off of the well planned day planner, and am also using www.homeschoolschedtrack.com (I may have that wrong)

Oh! And for a 3.5 year old the planner at target for $1 would be perfect! We used a similar one for pre-k also.

I use The Well-Planned Day dayplanner ... it's designed by a homeschooling family for homeschooling families. I love it! You can preview it here.

I don't need it yet for my LO, so I dk if it is any good, but I ordered the downloadable binder system from www.momstoolbelt.com when it was on sale. It certainly seems thorough!

I have been homeschooling for 12+ years and have never bought any type of planner. I print what I want off the internet. Goggle "free homeschool forms" and you will find tons of them.

I got the one from the dollar spot at target too. Its perfect when you just need a guide and need to jot a couple things down per day to stay on track.

I'm just bought Planbook at http://www.hellmansoft.com/. It's available for the Mac or PC. They have some online tutorials.
