Now that summer is more than half over (I know...say it isn't so!!) I, as well as many other teacher friends I know, are starting to prepare for the new school year. As much as I hate to see summer go, I LOVE Back-to-School. It's a fresh chance to get organized and a new excuse to spend a day buying school supplies :)
Last year, I had many teachers tell me that they would love to see a teacher planner in our shop. We were just venturing into the world of printables and I didn't feel experienced enough to put something like that together. But after a year of researching, making printables and custom orders for teachers from various grade levels and disciplines, we've finally settled on a set of planner pages that we HOPE will meet your needs this school year :-)
As a teacher myself, I understand how crucial it is to be organized and on-task throughout the week, especially when you take into consideration how much there is to manage outside of the classroom too. I could have made a million printables to go with this set, but I'm trying to follow some of the advice I was given from some of my other teacher friends, which is that "less is more." If your school is like mine, we are working hard towards a "Go Green" initiative, which means that a lot of the paperwork we used to have to fill out is now being submitted and shared electronically.
BUT WHAT ABOUT THE PLANNER-LOVING TEACHERS OUT THERE?!!
No matter how "Green" I have become as a teacher, I refuse to let go of my paper. It's how I plan best. The Teacher Planner was designed with planner-loving teachers like me in mind. It has a TON of wonderful options and includes printables that teachers of all grade levels can use. It also comes in two sizes, LARGE (8.5 x 11") for people who need a lot of room to write, and SMALL (5.5 x 8.5) for people who like their planner to be a little more portable. As of right now, The Teacher Planner is sold as a set, but we will be listing some of the individual dockets and pages separately in the near future.
Now, for all of you HOMESCHOOL teachers out there, we haven't forgotten about you either. We've adapted our Teacher Planner to meet the needs of a Homeschool classroom with many of the same printables customized to your needs. We offer the Homeschool Planner in LARGE and SMALL as well.
There are so many things I love about our Teacher and Homeschool Planner. For starters, I love having options and the flexibility of individual pages means I can build the perfect planner for ME. I can choose how to set them up and because the calendar and lesson planners are undated, I can use them year after year. Also…I love that I can build my planner in my beloved Martha Stewart Discbound (or any other planner or binder that suits your needs).
As you can see in the picture, I decided to create some word art to go with our teacher and homeschool planners. It was going to be an extra page to use somewhere in your planner, home or classroom, but I liked it so much, I decided to use it as my cover page this year!!! There are two different word art printables to choose from, or you can go with one of our two standard covers.
Perhaps the most important part of this planner is the Weekly Lesson. Every teacher has their own system, but I decide to go with one of the most requested layouts I have had from teachers, and I included 3 different options so that you can pick between 4, 6 or 8 subject boxes.
In addition to standard monthly pages and weekly lesson planners, I have also included a Daily and Weekly Docket to both the Teacher Planner:
And the Homeschool Planner
These Dockets are very different from your average weekly and daily pages, but the purpose of them is to give you a fun day or week-at-a-glance that highlights just the important stuff you want to accomplish. And because not everyone uses the same headers, our planner set comes with blank versions of these pages as well :)
Even though having a variety of monthly, weekly & daily pages is great for organization, sometimes you just want a good old Notes Page or ToDo list. Well…we have you covered :) Check out all the AWESOME pages this planner offers.
As much as I LOVE color in my planner pages, the cost of ink is outrageous these days. But for me, a black and white planner just doesn't make me smile. So, I tried my hardest to make this set as bright and functional as I could, without breaking the bank. And because you can use this set year after year, it's a wise investment :) I hope you love them as much as we do!!

I desperately want to purchase your Direct Sales planner but I just went to your Etsy shop and it's closed! Is there any way I can still purchase it? I bought a notebook and all of the other goodies to set it up this morning and then when I got home you were closed! :( Please let me know if there is any alternative way to purchase. It is just too cute and I haven't been able to find anything even close to it!ReplyDelete
