There are just so many good things to say about The Mulberry Planner! This planner ticks the boxes for learning records for my son, myself AND the authorities. And it’s all in one neat, gorgeous space. To me, it has made my home education journey so much simpler, and so far, flow much more smoothly with less hard thinking. I found documenting the planning really overwhelming at the beginning. Two & a half years in now and it’s definitely a joy, not a labour.

The dreaded 'plancrastination'

Feeling overwhelmed at the thought of organising yourself for your homeschool year? Worried you won't have enough documentation for your first moderator visit? This mega file includes everything you could possibly need to plan, track and evaluate your homeschooling routine and your children's wonderful journey of learning through life!

And this planner isn't just for homeschooling families... There are lots of great planning tools inside for families who opt for traditional schooling but want to stay organised and track home learning as well.​

What's in the 2018 planner?

The Mulberry Planner comes as a DIGITAL FILE that you can download and print.  It's a full set of over 150 gorgeously designed pages, templates, printables, lists and calendars - basically it's your whole homeschool year... SORTED!  Scroll down for a detailed look...

"I love the beauty and functionality of my Mulberry Planner! It's easy to personalize to my family and homeschool needs. I simply print the pages I need to for lesson planning and record keeping. Such a simple and lovely way to help us stay organized!"


Just used your planner today in our first ever homeschool assessment to show how we will be tracking our year ahead. Very exciting!

Designed for flexibility

I've designed this planner for ultimate flexibility, because I know that every homeschooling family's needs are different. For example, many pages have multiple layout options. I've designed over 150 pages but you definitely DON'T have to print every page! Once you've downloaded, simply look at each file and decide which recording and planning pages you'll use, and which cover and section dividers you prefer. Then build your own planner by mixing and matching! If your needs change throughout the year, your planner can change too!

For unschoolers too!

We get a lot of unschoolers asking whether this planner is suitable for unschooling. It's a great question... We have it on good authority that our planner suits unschoolers too! (See what they had to say about the planner here). Why? While you may not use the lesson plan or weekly schedule template, there are 140+ pages that will help you record your children's self-directed learning. 

Homeschoolers and unschoolers alike are required to show proof of learning to your state or region's homeschool moderators, so these printables will be a great way to deliver that information in an easy-to-record format. The weekly and daily records, term & annual reflections, calendars, book, documentary and podcast lists are designed to suit all forms of alternative 'schooling'/unschooling.

Templates for ultimate customisation

I've included a bunch of DIY templates with floral and leafy borders so you can customise individual pages to suit your needs. There are also blank note pages, section cover pages, lesson plans and summary pages.

Printing and displaying
  • You'll receive files as digital PDF files, so you can download and print as many pages as you want, as many times as you want! 
  • We recommend you download and open the files on a desktop computer or laptop.
  • All pages are slightly aligned right so there is margin room on the left for hole punching and ring binder display.
  • The files are high resolution PDF designed for all printers, home and professional.
  • We have been mindful of colour printing, and designed graphic-light and simplistic pages where possible (eg. for the pages you'll reprint and use most, like the daily record sheets and lesson plans). The covers and section dividers are designed to be a gorgeous pop of colour!

I've got a head start on my 2018 planning and I feel so organised with the lesson plan outlines in The Mulberry Planner. The hardest part for me has been choosing which of the gorgeous cover sheets I want to use! There is just so much choice and I can really make this planner my own. My son loves having his own record keeping pages to use too.

For homeschoolers and families

As well as 8 custom designed covers for homeschoolers, I've also included 'Family Planner' versions and a blank template for you to add your own family's name to. Something for everyone!
