As I shared in a previous post, How We’ve Become a Family that Reads, this upcoming year my family will be moving away from the My Father’s World curriculum to a complete Charlotte Mason based education. I’ll share soon what that’s going to look like: I am very excited about it!
Over the past few weeks I’ve been ordering books and roughly planning our schedule. I usually purchase a homeschool planner to start my planning. With diving into a CM based education, our days are not planned around subjects and lessons to be completed for the day. Rather, they’re planned around the clock. Each student has a certain amount of time allocated for each subject. As far as standard planners go, you can imagine the dilemma I was running into. I just couldn’t seem to find a planner that was based on Charlotte Mason’s method of education.
An Editable Charlotte Mason Homeschool Planner
Based on my Charlotte Mason educational outline provided to me by Liz and Emily from A Delectable Education, I started customizing my own lesson plans. I started to share what I was doing on Instagram and before I knew it many people started to comment that they’d like a Charlotte Mason homeschool planner of their own. So, in all of my enfp ways, I got busy and created a complete Charlotte Mason homeschool planner incorporating the artwork of illustrator, scientist, and naturalist, Maria Sibylla Merian. It’s completely editable!
Since we’re already headed into August, I’ve decided to give this Charlotte Mason homeschool planner away for free to anyone that would like to use it for the 2016 – 2017 school year. After using it, in the coming year, I’d appreciate your feedback so that I can refine and add to it. You’ll see what’s included in the images below.
term 1 – 3 enrichment pages (editable),
a book list (editable),
weekly notes (editable),
a bit of inspiration before the lesson plans,
a weekly schedule page that allows for 3 students (editable),
a daily lesson plan page that allow for 2 students (editable),
finally, blank monthly calendar pages in which I included poetry to bring about some truth, beauty, and goodness to your day.
If you can find this Charlotte Mason homeschool planner useful, you can download it for free by signing up to my email list below.
Once subscribed, you’ll be sent to a page on my blog where you can download the Charlotte Mason homeschool planner and monthly calendar pages, plus, as an additional bonus, you can also download my menuplan eBook, A Month of Meals from My Humble Kitchen to Yours, absolutely free!

I hope you can find this planner useful!
