Homeschool in Arkansas – multiple children, single family, special needs

FREE Daily Life Planner (2015 AND 2016) Printable

FREE Daily Life Planner

After I completed my Homeschool Planner, I began working on my 2016 daily life planner. I knew from the beginning of last year that it was something I wanted to do – so I could customize it to my own liking – and I am glad I did. I sketched out the layout and how I wanted everything to look. I finished in just over a month by working on it off and on. I was so excited I decided to go ahead and finish out the 2015 year too!  Let me tell you what I did and WHY.

Each day has its own page. Along the left hand side is your SCHEDULE. It is broken into two halves, for the AM and PM. Because everybody’s day doesn’t begin at the same time, I chose not to add times. On the right hand side at the top is a NOTES section. Directly below that is a MENU and TODO area. I think those are all pretty self explanatory.
Below these is a section named REFLECTIONS. This is intended to be used to write down scriptures, quotes, or other feel-good things that have happened during the day. Here, you can also share your mood through the day, or anything worth remembering.
And finally, the pictures at the bottom can be used anyway you like, however I created them with a specific purpose in mind. The heart is for tracking exercise. On the days that you exercise, you will color in the heart. The water drops beside that are to be colored in as you meet your daily water intake requirements. Because my water container holds enough for each 1 fill-up to count as 2 glasses, I only added 4 drops. The next picture is a book and is to track scripture reading and devotions. The last one is a syringe. This one is to help remind you to take your medicine (supplements, vitamins, etc).
Your needs may be different than mine, so feel free to use these anyway you see fit.

There are some slight differences between the 2015 and 2016 versions, however the layout remains the same.

FREE DAILY LIFE PLANNER - 2015, 2016, and undated versions

2015 PLANNER

I am offering the 2015 printable AS-IS. Here is why: I was adding a pop of color to each page. Instead of the yellow, pink, and blue theme that you will see with the 2016 version, I was alternating with random colors.. It got to be a little tedious and I was ready to just get it done with and start using it, so the last two months only have a pop of color at the top. The 2015 planner begins July 27th, 2015 and ends December 31st, 2015.

The 2016 planner has a pop of yellow, pink, and blue alternating on each page. This theme continues through the entire planner. The date begins on December 28th, 2015 and runs through January 7th, 2017.

For those that do not want the planners dated, I also have the blank versions in black and white ONLY. These are only labeled with the days of the week allowing you to date these and decorate them any way you like. Think about all the endless possibilities with stickers and washi tape!

Printable Reading Log

I know I am going crazy with sharing printables, but there is a purpose behind it! I am gearing up for the 2015-2016 year and am creating my OWN worksheets for my planner. While I enjoyed the ones that others shared, I always felt like I wished some of them were different. There were a few that I did like last year just as they were – the reading log being one – but in the theme of making my entire curriculum planner out of worksheets that I have created myself, I am creating my own.

This one is a basic reading log. I like to keep track of what my children read for projects (fun books don’t count!). Each child has their own reading log. I keep these at the back of my planner. Since I did like the one I used last year, I made this one somewhat similar, but did change up a few things to make it more my own and better for my needs.

Hopefully this will be useful to some of you too!
