Lesson planning has been going better for me since I joined Planbookedu. My grade level jumped at the opportunity and we got a great deal because five of us joined, and because we are part of one the biggest school systems in NC :) Double Score!
The Calendar view is what you see when you first open you account. I have two plan books: One for my entire day, and one for my guided reading groups.
My day looks like this. I color coded every part of my day and created a different cell for each. Easy to see, easy to use, easy to edit...you name it!
This is what my weekly lesson plans look like. You can change the view to see your plans daily, or weekly. I like this view much better :)
One of the best features (IMO) is that you can search for any CC standards (by grade level) and add them to your plans. We are required to add standards this year, so this made me a happy, happy teacher.
Another feature I love, is the ability to attach a document. It has saved me time already. Instead of getting to work on Monday and search for my flash drive, the documents is already waiting for me, ready to get printed.
And lastly... How about the days when you do not get to do what was planned? Planbookedu allows you to bump your lessons! Woot, woot! You can also copy your lesson from day to day (and just make some minor adjustments, and print it.
I asked my administration about observations. I was told to print them and not to worry about writing anything!
I am honestly very satisfied with this product! So, if you do not have a planner, and would like to try something new...come and enter to win.
