Our Large Family Homeschool Plan + Free Planner Printable


With my oldest currently in 10th grade, we have been homeschooling for 11+ years now.  When I first began homeschooling, I tried really hard to stick to a schedule.  Really, I did.  But through the years I realized that sometimes life and learning just happen when we least expect it.

Sometimes we just go with it, and other times we are more structured.  One thing is for certain, with seven children, someone is always learning something in our home.

While we don’t always stick to the schedule, I would like to share a short video about what a day in our homeschool typically looks like.  I would also love to share a free scheduling printable that I originally made for my own kiddos.


There are not a lot of tiny squares here, but one large section for each day.  I ask the child to write in any must do’s for the day (such as ballet and guitar lessons), so that they can structure their school work around that.  In our home, we flow between independent and teacher-oriented work.  My high schoolers are almost entirely independent, my kindergartener works entirely with me, and the others are somewhere in between.

At the bottom of the planner, I included the verse Proverbs 16:3.  Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and He will establish your plans.  Words to live by.  I hope that my children are reminded to seek The Lord in all that they do whenever they are using their planning sheet.

I made a short video describing a peek into our homeschool day below.  Feel free to take a look.

I would absolutely love to hear about how you structure your homeschool day.  I adore gleaning wisdom from other homeschoolers! Please feel free to comment below.  Thank you so much for stopping by, and many blessings from our home to yours!

    1. Yep, I don’t want to set us up for failure. 😉 I’ve learned that as long as our work gets accomplished, that’s all that matters! Thank you so much for stopping by.


  1. God bless you and your family 🙏 Thanks so much for sharing the biblical based books. As a first time mom (48), I’ve learned so much from your website and videos. I love everything😃


  2. I love to see how other homeschool families operate. 🙂 I homeschool four kids, and this is my 12th year homeschooling- which is hard for me to believe! I like to do some subjects together when we can because it’s always been more fun to work as a family and easier when I can combine grades. 🙂

    Thank you for sharing!
