I, like many other teachers, jumped on the Erin Condren Teacher Planner bandwagon. I have always typed and printed my lesson plans and taped them into the ugly, generic ,lesson plan book the school provides. (Want $10 off your first Erin Condren order? See link at bottom of post!)
I decided to be brave and try handwriting my lesson plans this year into my gorgeous Erin Condren planner. I bought those amazing Frixion erasable pens because I just knew I’d mess up my plans or have to make changes.. Plus, I hate my handwriting and figured I’d erase a million times to make it look as neat as I want it to be.
This idea lasted two whole seconds! I am required to put so many things into my lesson plans (standards, times, etc.) that I just couldn’t write it all tiny enough to fit everything in. Therefore I made a template so that I could type my plans and then print, cut and glue/tape them in. I posted a picture on Instagram and lots of teachers started asking for the template, so here it is!
Typing them and then printing and cutting might seem like a lot of extra work to some people, but I love how it turned out! I’ll do anything to make lesson planning a little more cuter! (Alternatively, you could print the templates on sticker paper or full sheet labels to save you from gluing – just cut and stick them on!)
Simply decide which of the 2 templates you’d like to use. Click in the text box to type/edit your plans. Print them out, cut the boxes apart and glue or tape into your planner. Examples and photos are included to give you a visual of what a finished product looks like. I hope you find this useful!
P.S. I obviously do not own Erin Condren and am making no profit from this template whatsoever. If you are not familiar with Erin Condren Teacher planners, check out Erin Condren’s website for more information.
The template is available for FREE on TeachersPayTeachers. I hope you guys find it useful!
June 24, 2017: There have been a few changes to the teacher lesson planner (2017 version) as far as text box sizes go. I have updated templates as well as updated the directions to edit. The new file is now on Teachers Pay Teachers!
