A Year With Little Learners – Brand New Teacher Planner for 2023/2024

A teacher planner with all of the pages that you need

One of my favourite things ever is stationery! I love books of every shape and kind and I also love to be organised. However, I have struggled to find the perfect book to organise my teaching year. I usually end up with something that either has pages I don’t need and don’t ever use while pages that I would find useful are missing. I decided that it was time to combine my two passions to create this fantastic teacher planner that has everything you could ever need to survive a year of teaching. There are 44 pages that help you to manage your time, plan and collect information.

The teacher planner includes:

  • Title pages
  • Year planners
  • Calendars
  • Weekly diary pages
  • Daily planner
  • Goal planner
  • To do list
  • Timetables
  • Reading records
  • Brainstorming sheets
  • Audit forms
  • Action plans
  • Meeting minutes
  • Class records
  • Passwords
  • Contacts
  • Important dates
  • Celebrations

Time Management

We all know how busy the life of a teacher is and why it is so important to manage your time effectively. The monthly calendar in the teacher planner will allow you to plan for those important dates while the yearly overview gives you a bit more space to list and plan for those important jobs in advance. These jobs can then be mapped out in greater detail over the weeks and days ahead using the weekly and daily planners. The daily planner allows you to account for every hour, ensuring that no time is wasted and with a to do list at the bottom of the page you are not likely to forget anything either.

Planning

I don’t know about you, but I always find that once I write things down they are more likely to happen. If it stays in my head, the ideas and to do lists swim around together and start to feel like a tidal wave. Putting plans on to paper makes life feel more manageable and there is nothing better than crossing off the progress you’re making. Even though there is always something else to replace it you know that you can make it happen. Writing down your goals in the teacher planner followed by 5 manageable actions makes them more achievable and before you know it you are quickly on to the next one.

Your goals might be things that you’ve had in the back of your mind for quite some time or they could stem from audits you carry out using the forms in the folder. There is a general audit form which considers what you are currently doing well, what you’ve made a start on and areas for development. The environment audit goes into a lot more detail and supports you in ensuring that your Early Years environment offers all of the key elements important for the development of our little learners.

If you generate lots of actions, there is no need to feel overwhelmed, just plot them on our action plan and you can deal with each one in a thoughtful and planned way.

Information

Finally, there is a section in the teacher planner where you can collect and store all of that important information that you often need to hand. Make a record of your passwords so that you no longer have to try several different ones before asking to reset it and wasting your valuable time. Have all those important contacts in one place so that when it’s time to book that return trip or visiting theatre you don’t need to go hunting.

Minute your meetings and record any actions they generate to ensure they are purposeful and productive. Never miss an important date with our handy record sheet where you can either record your own or refer to our list of festivals and celebrations.

I hope you find the teacher planner as useful as I have and spend the rest of the year being super organised and ready for any eventuality. Lamenting that there are never enough hours in the day can be a thing of the past as you take control and make the most of every minute of your day.

Happy Planning!
