For those who like to see your entire week on a single page, I’ve updated the Cycle 1 Single-Page Planner, to be used with the Foundations Guide 4th Edition from Classical Conversations.
A six-week subject planner is included in this version because I like to see the bigger picture when it comes to subjects like math. This one also includes booklist-, curriculum-, and goal-planning sheets.

Download a yearly school calendar from Calendar Labs to include in your planner!
This planner has been updated with 4th Edition revisions, but it does not include the timeline, since both timelines (whether you’re using the old one or the new one) are copyrighted by Veritas Press and Classical Conversations.
For a list of possible resources to use with Cycle 1, go to our Cycle 1 Resources post.
If you prefer a larger, two-page version of this planner, go to Cycle 1 Planner – 2-Page Version.

(Forgive me for that rather foreboding list of links to rather foreboding lists of books. I’m actually planning to use it myself. Maybe.)
Because our family is currently in a fortunate and blessed position to not need the extra income from any of my creations, we’ve decided as a family to offer our blog as a ministry to other homeschooling families. Supporting other families in their homeschooling endeavors is one of the few ways I can minister to others at this point in my life. It gives me great joy to share my work and to make this small offering of myself… all for the Glory of God.
My hope and prayer is that you are equipped and encouraged by my feeble attempts at writing – and that the few creations I have made for our own family will bless yours as well.
A reminder for all Classical Conversations users:
Please do not ever use my blog in lieu of purchasing the Classical Conversations Foundations Guide. That would not honor Leigh Bortins, her family, or a large number of other people who have worked so hard to provide such a wonderful community & program for equipping us to better know God and to make Him known to the world around us. If you try to use my blog in lieu of purchasing the Foundations Guide, you will have missed the one resource that actually makes this blog make sense. You will not find the memory work sentences on anything that I post on this blog, as that would infringe on copyright laws. If you do not already own the Foundations Guide, please purchase it here.
