I've finally found the best teacher planner ever!

You can stop searching for the best teacher binder/planner.  This is the one you've been looking for!
This is it!  The best teacher planner/binder ever!  Everything you need to keep your teaching life totally organized.

This product has just about everything a teacher needs to keep in a planner or binder.  And, if you don't see the pages you need, let me know.  I'm always looking for ways to make this product even better.

Here's what's included in this binder/planner bundle zip file.

As you can see, all but one of the files is PowerPoint.  That means they are almost all editable!

Binder Decor Editable,  includes: binder covers, binder spine labels and divider pages with 25 design choices!
C C Standards checklists Editable:  checklists for grades K-8 with all standards.  Great for tracking student progress through the year.
Calendars:  This is a pdf file, so it cannot be edited.  PDF file, Up-to-date yearly and monthly calendars.
Newsletter forms Editable:  Keep your parents informed with these newsletter formats, 20 templates, 10 with graphics, 10 without graphics.
Planning Long Range Editable:  Make plans for the year, quarter, trimester and month.
Planning Short Range Editable:  Make plans for the week, also small group planning and planning for individual subjects.
Record Keeping Editable: pages to keep your assignments, grades, and student progress data organized.
Who, What, When, Where and How :  Two PowerPoint files, one is editable and one is non-editable. Everything you need to keep all the bits and pieces of being a teacher organized. (teacher, student, parent, class information) Also includes pages for substitutes.  The non-editable pages can be used if you like to write in the information instead of type it in.

In the spring of 2016 I completely updated my Organized Teacher Binder.  I updated the graphics, added new pages and organized everything into folders instead of one long file.  One teacher she liked the pages in one file because it was easier to print at one time.  So I took that suggestion and created the totally new Print and Bind Planner. I love the way it came out and I think you'll love it, too. (I really do love teacher input and suggestions!) 

Print and Bind Planner 2016-2017:  265 pages you can customize and print as one file to create the perfect planner. So much flexibility! You can delete pages, edit the text boxes, change the font, rearrange the pages, duplicate pages, add you own pages, and add graphics. Since this is a PowerPoint file you have so much control of the content. 

This is it!  The best teacher planner/binder ever!  Everything you need to keep your teaching life totally organized.

Teacher Planner, My New Obsession!

This could possibly be the best teacher planner ever!  You choose the pages you need.  Perfect for organizing your plans, progress monitoring, grades, and everything else for your classroom!

I may be a little late to the planner obsessions, but now I'm hooked! I've always loved putting together my teacher binder at the beginning of the school year and a three-ring binders was my organization tool of choice.  I loved how easy it was to arrange everything and add or remove pages.  I saw other teachers with pre-made planners and thought they looked very nice, but I didn't like the idea of someone else choosing what I put in the planner.  But now, I've found the perfect combination of binder and planner . . . the discbound planner system. I love, love, love them!  
Discbound teacher planner, my new obsession!  I love setting it up just exactly the way I want!

There are several different brands.  Two of the easiest to find in local stores are from Staples (Arc system) and Office Depot (TUL). 
If you're not familiar with the discbound system, here's a great video introduction. 

I started my first discbound planner with a letter size, frosted cover planner from Staples.  I also bought the small page punch, which is needed to punch the holes for the pages you want to add.  There are so many accessories you can buy, but I wanted to start simple and grow.  As soon as I got home I started looking online for ideas of how other teachers had put their planners together.  I started watching video after video with tutorials for making all the cool accessories. Being a frugal and crafty teacher, I'm now having a blast creating all the goodies that go in my planner.  

Here's what I've done so far.
Step 1:  Decide what pages I wanted in my planner.  You can either create the pages yourself in PowerPoint or buy a packet from a TPT seller. Of course, I used the Organized Planner from my own TPT store. Then you can print the pages you want to go in your planner.  

My old printer recently died so I bought a new one that prints double sided. Much easier when printing for a planner.   If your printer does single sided only, you can print all the odd number pages. Then put the paper back in and print the even number pages.  

I chose pages with teacher and student information, calendars, long and short range planning pages, and  grade/record keeping pages.

Teacher planner with a discbound planner,  I'm obsessed! You can choose the pages you want, instead of making do with a planner put together by someone else.

Step 2:  Add the extras-- This is where the fun starts! The first thing I made was a dashboard.  All I did was laminate a piece of scrapbook card stock. Then I added these cute sticky notes from the Dollar Spot at Target.

Teacher planner goodies, make a dashboard to hold sticky notes.

Next I made a pocket made from a Target Dollar Spot folder. Trim off the tab and a large chunk of the front corner to make the pocket.  I taped the edges to make the pocket a little more sturdy.  Next, I laminated it and scored across the pocket to open it.  Since the folder is thick It wouldn't fit into the small page punch made for the discbound pages.  So I used the cover of my planner to mark where the holes should be. Then I punched the holes with a regular paper punch and cut a slit with scissors.  Now I have a pocket to hold notes, reminders, etc. 
Discbound planner folders are super simple to make.  They are a handy place to hold all the notes and reminders teachers need to keep.

That's what I have so far in my teacher planner.  What do you think is handy to have in your teacher planner?
