Giveaway and Sale!

Lots of great news today- I have a sale AND a giveaway going on! Make sure you read all the way to the end of this post to enter the awesome giveaway- it ends on 8/25 so hurry! :)

TeachersPayTeachers has announced a one-day-only site-wide sale today, August 19th, at a Back-to -School 'boost sale". This sale is perfect timing for those of you who are, like me, about to go back to school next week (aaaahh! not ready!). Make sure you use the code MORE15 at checkout and you will get 28% off of everything in my store!

If you haven't already, this is the perfect time to get organized for the school year with one of the Entire Life Planners. If you haven't seen them yet, here's an overview of what's included:

I've recently added a new lesson planning format at customer request, so here's a rundown of all the options you now have for lesson planning formats to help you find the one that best fits your planning style and teaching schedule! The photos link to the Entire Life Planners, which include planner pages for lesson planning, music teaching, home, and budget/business tracking, but you can also mix and match just the parts you need- the link to each included portion is included in the description in my store so just click on the ones you want to purchase them separately :) Every planner has the same contents except for the weekly lesson planning pages- you can see a preview of more of the pages in the other sections by clicking on the pictures.

Dated Five Lessons:
This is the one I use personally. It has space for 5 lesson blocks (which are big enough to split in half if you have more classes on some days etc) each day, and includes space to note life events etc for weekends as well. Each day for the entire 2015-16 school year is dated in the planner.

Dated Six Lessons:
This one is almost the same as the first one but just has 6 lesson blocks per day.

Dated Five Big Lessons:

This version includes more space for lesson planning, and has space for just the weekdays. If you don't need to keep track of many life events in your weekly planning but you do want more space for lesson plans, this one might be the best fit. I know many people who use this one plan their "life stuff" on the monthly calendars and that is enough space for them.

Dated Eight Big Lessons:

This version is for people who need a LOT of lesson planning space ;) Like the previous version, there are only weekdays, but there are 8 lesson planning blocks each day. There is also just one space at the top that is not labeled- you could use it for life events, prep work, or anything else you need.

Dated Weekly:
This version is for people who see classes on a weekly basis (so, for example, you see Ms Smith's 3rd grade class every Monday and Thursday) and only want to write down their lesson(s) for each grade or subject once for the week. The lesson planning boxes are big enough that if you see some or all of your classes twice a week, you could split the blocks in half with a line and write both down in that space. Weekends are included in this one as well.


This version is for people who see classes on a rotational basis (so, for example, you see Ms. Smith's 3rd grade class every A day and C day) and want to plan by rotation rather than by the dates you will see each class. There is a place to write down the start date of each rotation at the top of each page.

And now for the GIVEAWAY! :)

I am giving away a set of planner swag to one lucky winner! This set includes all the extras that I have in my store to add to your planner: some inspirational teaching quotes (for dividers, journaling cards, stickers etc), perpetual calendars (for those who may want a different monthly or yearly calendar format), and two seasonal planners- a holidays planner and a summer planner! Click on the pictures below to see what is included in each one. You can enter the giveaway twice, and you have 1 week to do so, so make sure you enter! Whether you are the proud owner of one of my planners or not, you will find some wonderful stylish and organizational items in this set! Happy planning, and best wishes to all of you who are starting the new school year- let's make it a great one! :)

  1. Can you make one of these for a high school music teacher?! THIS IS FANTASTIC!

    1. Hi and thanks for the comment! This planner is designed to work with as many different music teaching jobs as possible, including high school. In the music teacher organizer section there are "rehearsal notes" sheets in 3 different formats which are perfect for teachers who only have ensembles. I know of at least secondary music teacher who uses the rehearsal notes sheets as her lesson planning pages. The national standards for middle and high school are also included. If there is something else that you think would be helpful for you and other high school music teachers, please do let me know and I'll be happy to work with you to come up with something- I know that music teachers can have such vastly different job descriptions and I want to make it helpful for as many of us as possible! Send me an email Thanks! :)

  2. Love love love love love and love! This is exactly what I started to create... glad I don't have to put in the hours reinventing the wheel. Thanks!

    1. That's awesome! If I can save other teachers time I am happy :)
