    1. That one has been very popular- I don't think people outside our profession realize just how many different classes we tend to juggle in a day.

  8. What a terrific getaway! I find that I need a mix of printable planners and then online reminders to keep me on task.

    1. I'm pretty heavy on the paper side, but there are a few things I track digitally as well. Everyone has to find their own system that works with the way they think and the way they live their life, and usually that means a mixture of several systems. Good luck in the giveaway! :)

    1. I seriously do not do it if I don't write it down. I tell people this all the time when they ask me to do something- if you want to guarantee that it will happen, you need to make sure I write it in my planner. That is the only way. ;)

  10. This is awesome! I'm going to be a first year teacher next year, and this looks perfect!

  11. I don't know what format I would need...I teach 5 classes a day on a 6 day rotation-year round! Any suggestions?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It depends on a) how much space you want to plan life events- dr appointments, birthdays etc, and b) whether you want to only write the lessons for each rotation once and don't need to list the classes in the order you teach them or want to write out the lesson plans for each day. If you just want to write each set of lessons once per rotation and don't need a lot of space for "life planning", go with the rotational. If you want to plan by day, including life planning, go with the "dated 5" or "five big" if you need more space for lesson plans and don't need the weekend dates included. Hope this helps and thanks for entering!

  12. I am not sure which format is best - yet - but I love it all!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Love your planners! I think the 6 block would be best for me and my classes!

  14. I am anxious to give your system a try. I just finished the worst school year in quite a while. I know much of it was due to my dis-organization and lack of planning.

  17. I'm not seeing my original comment.. I'll try again..

    I love planners! I teach k-8 music, k-4 technology, 5-8 band, 5-8 choir, 2-8 gifted, afterschool piano/ukulele/voice lessons, sell Thirty-One, and still like to keep track of my home life. This would be perfect for it!!!

  18. I LOVE this My Whole Life Planner!!! One of my main goals for this upcoming school year is to be more organized! (I aimed for it last year but utterly failed :0/ Looking forward to exploring this purchase (or prize! which would be phenomenal). Thank yo for sharing your amazing organizational skills.

  19. I have used a binder for the past three years, but not in a very organized manner. That is why I am jumping at this chance.

  20. LOVE this and have been trying to figure out how to get it for the coming year!! Thanks for sharing your expertise!!

  21. The 8 big lesson blocks format looks perfect! I used to try only writing each lesson once per rotation, but some class or another always ends up falling out of the cycle because of field trips or days off. Love this!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Yay! I love being organized and having a great paper way to do this!-Lisa

  23. I'm heading into my second year teaching. Now that I know (kind of) what I'm doing, I can't wait to take time this summer to make long-range plans!

  24. I like to use paper planners. I write my lesson plans on the computer but need a notebook to carry around to keep my personal/school lives straight!

  30. I love your planner formats, for me though because I only work three days a week (Mon-Wed) I prefer having those on one page and having a larger note section - This means if I want to add a little more detail to each lesson I can.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I also like to use paper planners. Just can't get used to electronic lesson plans. I hope I'm lucky enough to win!
