Organization is the name of the game for many successful teachers. Having access to information, lesson plans, grades, and more in one place at any time is invaluable.
I remember when I started out with teaching. I ordered a fancy planner online and was set to go. While I loved the organization capabilities I couldn’t help but feel that I was paying for pieces that I didn’t need, nor want. I often wished that I could change aspects of the layout, colors, etc.
Three years ago I did just that! I created my own [Nautical Theme Teacher Planner].
Last year this planner received a few minor updates to bring it into the 2015-2016 school year, but it has received a complete facelift for the 2016-2017 school year! I am also able to offer the planner as a customizable [hard copy] now as well! This is great for anyone who doesn’t have the time (or patience) to assemble the planner themselves. And guess what? It’s still customizable! I’m excited to link up with Tara at [4th Grade Frolics] to share all the details!
Before I introduce you to the new planner… If you are a teacher-blogger, teacherpreneur, or TpT author you are DEFINITELY going to want to check out my all new [TOP Teacher Planner] designed with the teacher-author-blogger-extraordinaire in mind!
I am beyond excited to share some images of the planner with you today (and I’ll try my best to let the pictures do the talking). Meet the 2016 – 2017 Nautical Theme Teacher Planner!
For those who already own the printable version of this planner you will notice several updates right off the bat. First off, there are now FOUR editable covers to choose from! My favorite is the whale cover pictured above. What are the other cover options?
You will also notice that this planner now has tabs! OH MY GOODNESS! The ease of finding exactly what your looking for is fantastic. The printable version of the planner has a template that includes the tabs, while the hard copy planner comes with tabs installed.
Another new addition for the 2016-2017 planner is a holiday and important dates spread. Need to add more holidays or dates? No problem! There is space built in to add as you please!
What about birthdays? No worries! Keep track of your students’ and teammates’ birthdays on the two-page birthday spread!
As in the old planner, each month contains a full two-page spread and two note-taking pages. You’ll notice that the month spread have a sleeker overall design (and updated quotes for inspiration).
I am loving the clean look of the lesson planning pages! I also love that the planner can be customized to run vertically or horizontally with your choice of times/subjects/days!
Keeping a paper record of grades, attendance, or who has turned in a permission form has never been easier! Simply flip to your included checklist section!

Happy planning y’all!
