While I LOVE this calendar lay out, writing out my schedule by hand is not so easy this year (now that Kindergarten has changed to full day!) So I wanted to simplify and I was also really inspired by some techy lesson plan templates that I saw on some blogs like these from Erica Bohrer and Dee Dee Wills.
I had a hard time figuring out how to make these work for my classroom, since my schedule is different each day of the week and I do like to have the option to write things in and change them throughout the week as needed (like when we have a snow day and I need to change my plans)! So I ended up creating a digital template of my weekly schedule with space to write in specific lesson plans for those activities that require them.
I had fun decorating my new binder with some collages (repurposed from last planner), adding my schedule, and adding monthly calendar pages (from Goddess Leonie!). I have a pocket in front for any papers that are coming or going, a pencil pouch to store both pens and smaller materials that I've created, space in the binder for my year-long plan, and also room at the back for my teacher journal.

I feel more organized now that I have all of my "stuff" (other than curriculum) in one compact planner. Yay, I guess this counts as an organization project for the Clutter-Free Classroom Project!
