2013-2014 Academic Planner Review

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received one or more of the products or services mentioned above for free in the hope that I would mention it on my blog. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255: "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising."


I know the first thing your wondering is with a toddler why would I want an academic planner, let me tell you that sometimes they are cheaper and better than a regular planner and you can use them for multiple purposes.

IMAGE00228 Like most planners, the first page set up for personal information encase it its lost or to identify the owner.


I see a half blank page I can write on, A spot I can jot down my information for someone or someone’s for my address book.


As always the nickle is there to show scale.


There are various styles of pages that you can use as suggested, or however you’d like.  I once tried a DIY agenda book with lots of blanks, but honestly did not use it as much as I use these.

Some ideas for the pages:

  • listing coupons/codes you need to take with you or use
  • places to go
  • things to do
  • Homeschooling
  • For Students
  • any random notes
  • on older pages you can let your kids draw or write


They do offer a guide on how they suggest the book is use, it’s right in front and great for students.


This is a page on mine, as you can see I’m not using subjects at least not yet, but I was thinking of doing a subject on toddler activity.  I could then put in the corresponding box library day, play group, art, or any other activity.

I do like that I can list things for my blog on it, and there’s a notes spot where I listed things I’m expecting to arrive for upcoming reviews and giveaways.

There’s also a spot to check that you have done what’s in the box. I always feel accomplished when I do!

I just started using it but already there are so many possibilities.  Probably by next month I’ll have a subject for my toddler and then my blog, I’m sure it will grow but we keep a pretty flexible schedule.

The only thing I do not like about it for a student is that the subjects would only work if they did not change throughout the year.  Of course you could white it out and write on top.

I got this planner through Order Out of Cahos, check them out on there website.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
