Student Planner Versions (Regular-Sized Binder)
This student planner is made for a regular-sized binder for 8.5 x 11 in pages (I am currently working on the mini version). There are two versions of the regular-sized planner. One comes in pink, orange, blue, and purple. And the other comes in blue, green, and dark gray. Click the image(s) of the planner(s) you would like to receive.
The pages are as followed:
- Title page
- Year-at-a-glance calendar
- Monthly information page
- Month page 1
- Month page 2
- Week page 1
- Week page 2
- Notes/Graph page
- Class Schedule
- Attendance Record
- Grade Recorder
- Reading Log
- Web Resources/Passwords
- Contacts page
- Weekly divider
- Records divider
Putting it Together
After downloading the planner/planners of your choice, I recommend printing them in the following sequences if you are going to print on the backsides of each page.
- print pages 1,3,5, 7, 9,11, 12,13,14,15,16
- for the back side match the following pages: 1–>2, 3–>4, 5–>6, 7–>8, 9–>10, 11–>11, 12–>12, 13–>13, 14–>14.
- for weekly sheets, print the note/graph page (page 8) on the backside of all additional weekly sheets that come between months; this will give your student extra space for taking notes and making calculations alongside of doodling.
- I also created dividers whose tabs will stick out on the top not the side; however, you can still purchase tabs like these if you prefer tabs on the side.
If you have the supplies on hand, these are other things you can do to make the planner last longer.
- laminate the title/calendar page and dividers.
- if you can’t laminate them, then use reinforcement labels to keep the pages from ripping out.
- use card stock or heavy paper for grade recorder and attendance sheet since these will be kept in the binder for the whole year; or again, you can use reinforcement labels.

Mini Size Versions
Click the links below to receive the mini sized versions (5.5″ x 8.5″) of the planners above.
When putting your mini planners together, follow the directions below to print on both sides of each sheet.
- print page 1, 5, 9 once
- for the back side, match the following pages: 1 –>2, 5–>6, and 9 –>10
- for 12 month pages, print page 3 (11 times) followed with page 4 on the back (11 times)
- for weekly pages, I suggest printing as needed but if you want an entire year, print pages 7 (26 times) followed by page 8 on the back (26 times)
- print pages 11, 12, 13, and 14 as needed
How You Can Use Your Pages
Naturally, most of the sheets are self-explanatory, but I want to share with you how you can fill in some of the information.
For the weekly sheets, the small columns on the left of each day can be used to enter the time of day or can serve as a place to put a check mark after one is done with a chore, assignment, etc.
Although the notes page says ‘Oodles of Doodles’, kids can use the space for notes and calculations. I like the graph part to help keep their numbers straight when calculating math problems. But, of course, they can use that part to create some pixelated art work.
We use colored highlighters on our attendance recorder. Yellow for days in school, pink for weekends, orange for holidays, and green for vacations.
Personally, I would print out one grade recorder per subject rather than using the same sheet for all subjects. This way it will be easier to add up the grades at the end of the year for their final grade.
If your student is not homeschooled, then please be careful when filling out the web resources page. Instead of entering the actual password, I would fill in a hint for that password. This way, if they misplace their planner, then you don’t have to worry about someone getting a hold of their internet information.
