Why Plan Online?
My teacher planners are always totally cute-but I don't carry them with me all day. Not carrying a huge book shouldn’t limit my ability to work on the go and use those pockets of free time to prepare for my kiddos, so I began creating this planner based on my needs and have added ideas based on feedback from others.
Since I have my google drive on my phone I ALWAYS have access to my plans. If I get a good idea, see something I want to add to a lesson, snap a photo that inspires a great science talk-I just upload it to my drive on my phone and it is all RIGHT THERE no matter where I am.
Access it anywhere you can connect to the internet. ANYWHERE!
Copy/Paste links to videos/images that you want to use in your lessons. This makes it so much easier to pull up the things you want to show!
Duplicate pages you use over and over so you don’t have to retype/write things again and again.
Share with colleagues for collaborative planning. Work with a team that shares planning responsibilities? Awesome-everyone can access a shared plan book to add their pieces-even at the same time!
New year? No Problem! I plan to update this each spring with new calendar pages. You can make a copy of next year’s file and then use the Insert > Import Slides button to import any of the items from previous years that you want to use again.
Want to use different planning styles for different units? Easy! Just duplicate the slides you want to use and place them in an order that makes sense to you.
Once this planner is yours, you can make as many as you want. I organize by quarter so I have four. I duplicate what I need and delete the rest!
