Making A Homeschool Binder & Printables Kit

If this is your first time homeschooling or distance learning, chances are you feel very overwhelmed right now. That’s okay! It’s natural to feel overwhelm when we’re learning how to do something new. I’m here to help you feel more confident with teaching your kids at home, so today we’re going to be making a homeschool binder! I’m also including printable files of every page I used down at the bottom of this post, so you have them to use in your own homeschool binder.

I worked my hardest to make this homeschool binder printable kit as versatile as possible, whether you’re doing traditional homeschooling or distance learning. This kit also works with multiple kids, you’ll just need to print more than one of things like the weekly plan.

You can either use a three hole punch OR slip these into page protectors and use dry erase markers. Whatever works best for you!

You can click on the images at the bottom of the page to print out your binder pages. You can print as many or as few as you need! The pages include: a cover/ cover page for your binder, a live class schedule, a important dates, attendance, weekly plan, website information, and contact info. I also recommend that if you are doing distance learning through a virtual academy that you print out the school’s calendar and any important info pages and add those to your binder as well.

Let’s assemble our binder! I love pretty binders, and this purple star one was an awesome Target find. You can always use a standard binder, and just add your cover page into the clear front pocket to make it cute! We reuse binders a lot around my house, because they’re good for so many things.

I always make sure to have some writing paper in the back of my binder for notes or other things. Then I tossed into dividers with folder pockets. I LOVE a good folder pocket in a binder. These are excellent to keep track of printouts, letters, notes, etc. Then I tucked all of my printables into some sturdy page protectors and added those in! I put my cover page right up front, because it’s so bright and fun.

P.S: A little pro tip, if you use sticky notes as much as I do, you can take the back sheet off a thin pad of sticky notes and attach your notes to the inside cover of your binder. That way it’s easy to find them, but they’re tucked out of sight.

Here’s the order for my printables. I put the school calendar on the inside cover behind the cover page. Then I have the attendance page, followed by the other pages in order of how often I think I’ll need to access them. If you have multiple kids, you can use the folder pocket dividers to separate your printables by kid. Or, depending on what works best for you, you can organize all the attendance together, all the class schedules together, etc.

And when you’re all done with school for the day, your binder with all the information can be tucked away happily on a shelf. And you can get some rest knowing that you have everything organized and you’re good to go. I know this is new for some of you, and hard for all of us, and you’re doing amazing. I hope that making a homeschool binder helps make your day run just that little bit smoother!
