Template Time

OK, so I have been known to totally and completely spazz out when it comes to lesson plans and how to organize them and where to keep them, blah, blah, blah. Last semester I went through 30,000 different ways to keep myself "organized". It was a disaster. So, I am vowing right here and now to come up with a simple plan, follow it, and stick to it throughout the year. {Talk to me in May 2013 and see how that went for me...}

Anyway, so as a first year teacher, I know that I will need a set of weekly plans to use as a gauge and I know myself well enough to know that I will also need to use some sort of detailed planner for the first month or so, until I get my bearings.  Below are what I have developed for myself. The weekly one is so simple, I didn't think I needed to include the download of it, but if you want it, leave a comment and I'll send you a link. Here is the more detailed plan. Just change the information to yours, obviously. Hope it helps!

Share what you use to organize your weekly lessons! I always love ideas.


  1. Emily, your plans look awesome! I tried to take a closer look but when I clicked here it came up with an error page. I would love for you to send me a copy! I love your blog. I can't wait to read more!! Thank you for the inspiration.

    1. Try this. I think I am going to start using Scribd instead of Google Docs. Seems like I always have an issue with Google...

      Hope that works! Thanks so much for visiting my blog! Send me a link to your blog and I will gladly come steal your ideas!! :-)

  2. I am having the same problem view. Please send me a copy too... I am enjoying your blog.... Keep up the good work.

  3. Sorry about that! I will fix the link. It should work by the time you read this. :)

  4. Great format.....I love the way you have the scoring box at the bottom of each day. :)

  5. I love your format, could you send me both formats. I tried the but my school computer won't let me get to it. Thanks so much!
