This is Version 4 of an updated planner based on the required PYP planner for International Baccalaureate schools. It is more user friendly than the 'bubble' planner currently required and is laid out to include planning on a weekly basis. There is a place to note standards and district- or state-mandated assessments. New on this planner are specific spots to include planning for Learner Profile traits and attitudes, Approaches to Learning (Skills), and Opportunities for Student-initiated Action. Including them this way provides a reminder that all IB PYP planning, teaching, and assessing includes the five essential elements of PYP.
The updated planner has all the elements required on an IB PYP planner. However, the cells expand for detailed descriptions so it is a more accessible document for actual classroom practice. You may cut and paste easily as you transfer from the original IB PYP planner to this format. You may also add additional pages for Units longer than six weeks.
