A Charlotte Mason Homeschool Planner
A Charlotte Mason Homeschool Planner has gorgeous watercolor floral graphics throughout. To be 100% honest… I created this planner for me! I have used a gazillion planners (well… maybe not that many), and there are so many pages that I just don’t use. One great thing about this planner is that it looks great in color and in black and white!

Since I have been implementing more Charlotte Mason this year, I knew I needed a planner that would fit a Charlotte Mason schedule. So, I made a list of everything I wanted in a CM planner. One thing I am super excited about is the Nature Study, Music Study, Artist Study, and Handicraft schedules. I am sooooo bad about forgetting those things if I don’t already have a plan laid out for me.
This year I have been using the Artist and Composer Studies from Ambleside Online. But, without having it written down somewhere… I forget it. A lot more than I want to admit.
I added in a daily schedule for those who like to have daily plans along with 2 weekly options.
I, personally, do not like to have a daily schedule. A weekly loop schedule works perfectly for me!
As I am sure you already know, a CM education is divided into terms. (Three 12 week terms) So, I have also divided the planner by term. Term 1,2, and 3 each have different beautiful watercolor floral designs and corresponding weekly planning pages.
The attendance sheets are also divided into 12-week terms.
As you may have guessed… there are none. A part of Charlotte Mason’s philosophy was not giving formal grades as you would in a traditional school.
“She wanted children to be motivated by admiration, faith, and love, instead of artificial stimulants such as prizes (stickers, candy, or money), competition, and grades.”~Karen Andreola, A Charlotte Mason Education
However, I do realize that some still like to record grades for certain subjects (as do I), so I will be creating a separate grading form and adding it to the shop.
