Keeping my teaching and planning organized always brought a sense of control and enabled to shift focus from curriculum goals and teaching agenda to one-on-one interactions with students on a more meaningful and deeper level.
That allowed me to be present with the children and stay on top of classroom organization. You can’t overestimate the power of having a functional system to plan your teaching process at home and in a school, childcare or family daycare.
So I designed an Editable Teacher Planner.
I can’t imagine running a successful program without a detailed and thorough plan in place. I see a great advantage in having lists of all resources, ideas, schedules, yearly, weekly and daily plans organized in one place. I was looking for something that was pleasant to work with and functional. The best part is that you can customize it to fit your needs – use powerpoint slides to add table columns and rows, change font style and color, add or change table content according to your preference.
I believe it will be especially handy to those of us who are starting the new academic year in January. My planners include both options – Jan-Dec and August – July academic years.
The teacher planner is in PowerPoint – editable and customizable. The PDF version is also included for those who prefer to print and handwrite all information without having to change the content.
Every December I am going to update calendars and add new styles, covers, planners and lists. You are going to receive a FREE notification every year to the updated version. This way I will help you to save on having to purchase a new planner each year.
Each type of form is presented in an individual file to help you pick and choose what works best for you and your classroom.
Montessori and other quotes are included within the design.
You can also laminate the notes page and use it to write and wipe daily notes.
My favorite part is that the planners have separate infant, toddler, preschool, and lower elementary student daily and weekly plans based on Montessori scope and sequence.
I also included a two-page spread weekly plan with a page to write down your weekly recap, general observations, and reflections. I always used to prepare two 2-page spread plans with lesson plans for each child per day ( classroom for 3-5yo with 18 children present a day) across the whole week. I would also have next week’s planner prepared where I used to write down a follow-up lesson. This ensured that way my individual lesson presentation plan was done one week in advance. It also allowed me to make sure that not one child was left without attention.
Here is what Weekly Planner for Individual Lesson Presentations for 20 children looks like. Two additional pages are included with the weekly overview and weekly reflections. Print on both sides of the paper.

My Sanity List is a great reminder to nurture your mind and soul in the midst of your busy schedule.
You have an option to choose from three different covers and spines. As I mentioned earlier, new styles will be added each year. This 250+ page Teacher planner is a great choice for a Montessori teacher, however, it can be used by all teachers as it can be easily adjusted to fit your preferences.
Here is a small tip: When working on your planning – simply copy and paste parts of the curriculum you would like to address.
