How do you like it?
Paper. I use a seperate planner for each boy. When I taught PS I felt much more accountable with my paper planner than with my online one, so I stayed old school when I started hsing.
Paper one. I have a planner I got free from Lakeshore learning that I really like and I use a 3-ring binder with loose leaf paper to track what we did each day, I then punch holes in worksheets she completed and add that behind the day's completed list page.
For those who prefer paper, I loved the corebooks from Tanglewood. They no longer print them, but you can get the PDF for $5.95. http://tanglewoodeducation.com/corebook.htm
For me, using paper worked well until I started thinking about how to put together a good transcript for colleges. Between that and the fact that Tanglewood stopped printing their corebook, I switched to the free version of HST when DD was in 6th grade. By 8th grade I wanted to play around with the full version so I had more control over and ease of making a transcript.
I use both. I have a paper one so I don't lose any important info. I have had that happen before. I use a online calender so I can share important info with other homeschoolers for classes that I am teaching and coordinating at my co-op. I love them both.
I use this one: http://donnayoung.org/f13/planner-f/f-school-pdf/week.pdf
It has the option of typing it in too, which is what I like (nice and neat, and takes up less space!)
I like that it has a little box for each subject on every day of the week.
