Free Calendar Updates!!! This is an all-in-one teacher binder and lesson planner which has just what you need without feeling overwhelming. Editable and ready for you to personalize for the 2016-2017 school year.

Includes Inspirational Covers, Monthly Themed Melonheadz Covers, Colorful Covers and Black and White Covers. All editable in Power Point.

Kick 1990’s unpractical lesson planner to the curb and welcome in a modern functional planner.

No more apples from 1992.

No more limits on how big or small the squares in your planner are.

No more feeling frazzled.

This particular download, the PRETTY BASIC BINDER comes after five years on Teachers Pay Teachers of many requests on different themes. The demand was just too big this year so they are going in one big download. There are over 45 cover designs right now with more to come, making the choices wide but not overwhelming.

The inside pages of this download are all clean, simple, and modern. All black and white. All printer friendly, with no fancy fonts (unless you want them—this is completely editable).

If you would like this option AND colorful inside pages, please see the Teacher Binder Bundle, which includes the Colorful Chevron design. You can find that by clicking HERE

You can customize your forms in Power Point. You can save these year after year as new files. You must have Power Point for this download.

Please see the preview for a closer look at all the cover designs! Let me stress that the covers do not match the inside pages to an exact theme. This is not like my other designs. All the inside pages are black and white with no frills. This is the pretty basic binder.

Again, this download comes with over 45 covers for you to personalize with more coming making the choices wide but not overwhelming! It comes with matching binder spines (1 inch and 2 inches).

Please see the preview for the list of covers.
