I know…I know…you clicked on those gorgeous planners and sticker shock made you close the
Reason 1 – Full Year Calendar View
How often do you need to look at a calendar quickly and realize that you left your phone somewhere in the room or car? Maybe I’m alone in this, but I
Reason 2 – Stickers
This might sound like a silly reason, but one reason I use stickers in my planner and don’t write on the calendars with my favorite Flair or Ink Joy pens is
Reason 3 – Data/Checklist Pages
All those checklists!!! I always buy the most checklists for the back of the planner. I use them for everything from data, grades, benchmark information, progress monitoring, field trip forms, PBIS points, etc. You can literally use the checklists for EVERYTHING! Seriously! Instead of hauling around my Student Data Folders to meetings, I just grab my planner and go. Since I order a planner with the most pages, I don’t mind if a new student moves in.

Here’s what I store in mine: Pacing Guides and Standards, Student Info Sheets, and Important EIP or RTI Forms. This way I don’t have to run back to the room when the Academic Coach is asking where we are on the pacing guide, or the RTI teacher asks how my Tier 2 group is performing, or I need to contact a
One last bonus reason is
I love my planner! It’s soooo worth the price! Wish I could earn the $ 10 off or win the free on but I’ll pay just to get mine next year ! Thank you for your blog. Great information!
Where did you get the pouch that said, “Collecting all the Data”?
I agree with you on all 5 of these! My EC Teacher lesson planner is my absolute favorite ?
