"So many great planning tools in here! Easy to edit and use. Highly recommend. There are planning templates for all styles of planners." - Corrina B.

If you’re a new elementary teacher and you’re overwhelmed by the options for planners, this is for you. I built this planner with simplicity, flexibility and efficiency in mind so you can set up and customize your planner quickly and easily.

Designed with the new elementary teacher in mind, I walk you through how to think through setting up your entire planner. I give you tips and suggestions for what to include (and what not to), as well as provide support with each step as you start thinking about how to best plan for your first (or second, or third) year of teaching.

I’ve also included a new, editable Online Teaching Schedule as well as 14 Things to Include in Your Weekly Planning when teaching online.

FREE UPDATES! Purchase this planning binder once & get all future updates for free!

Here’s What’s Included:

13 binder cover designs & spine covers (and growing – if you want a specific theme or color, contact me after your purchase and I’ll design it for you!)
