We were homeschoolers for ten years.
During that time, I taught up to four children. In four different grade levels. It was fun.
And at times overwhelming.
But one of the most important things I learned is that the only way to make homeschooling work (for me, at least) was to take a very relaxed approach.
I tried timed schedules and they just didn’t work for us. Especially because some of our children have attention issues.
The relaxed homeschooling approach, though, was perfect.
Which is why I thought it might be helpful to share this printable kids homeschool day planner – which is perfect for relaxed learning at home!
With this handy planning page, you can structure your child’s learning day without going overboard.
Which will only stress you all out. Trust me.

What is Relaxed Homeschooling?
I feel like I need to give a quick primer about relaxed homeschooling, just in case you’re new to teaching kids at home.
Relaxed homeschooling takes a gentle approach to schoolwork.
Instead of structuring your day in a school-at-home fashion (with a set time for each subject and a set amount of work to cover), you choose your own way to cover each subject.
In fact, you can even choose which subjects to complete each day.
The overall goal is to learn on a continuous basis – not to cover a certain amount of the curriculum.
My kids loved it.
