Erin Condren Teacher Planner 2018-2019

It's that time of the year again! Time to start thinking ahead to a new school year. Time to get organized for new students and possibly a new curriculum. Time to implement the changes that you reflected on at the end of the last school year. Time to break open your new Erin Condren Teacher Planner!

Walk through the new Erin Condren 2018 Teacher Planner with me as I go through it page-by-page with images, and grab $10 off if you're a new Erin Condren customer at the bottom of this post!

This post is part of a partnership with Erin Condren, but all thoughts and opinions about the products are my own. I don't promote what I don't love! This post contains affiliate links. 

Construction and Section One

The Erin Condren Teacher Planner is exceptionally well-made, with thick, laminated covers and a coil that seems impossible to damage. I carried last year's planner back and forth between school and home every day last year, and it is still in mint condition!

I LOVE color, so I chose the "Pencil Me In" cover option. There are almost 90 customizable cover choices available, and they are interchangeable so you can make your planner yours!

Sections are divided with sturdy laminated tabs in those great Erin Condren colors!

The inside of the front and back covers are spaces that are perfect for taking temporary notes with wet-erase markers. This is a feature that was also available in the 2017 planner. The first page in the book is the spot for your contact info for the (unlikely) event that you leave your planner behind somewhere.

The "All About Me" page is the perfect place to store some of your favorite classroom resources and online sites and their passwords. The page facing this is for recording classroom events and tracking your volunteers.

These pages are nearly identical to last year's planner.

The next part of this section contains a two-page "Communication Log" for documenting parent communication. This was a super-helpful section that I often used last year.

In last year's planner, this page was preceded by a "Helpful Hints for the Substitute" page, which does not appear in the 2018 edition.

Next is a two-page at-a-glance calendar that is customizable depending on the planner you order. This was not in last year's planner.

The next tab takes you to your "Year Plan" section. This is the perfect place to map out the big ideas in your curriculum or record special events that are ahead.

Last year, this section was followed by an "Absent Log" which is not included in the 2018 version.

The next four pages are grid paper which is perfect for your seating plans or for taking notes throughout the year.

Behind the grid paper are two blank notetaking pages. There are also lined pages at each of the month tabs.

Monthly Lesson Plan Sections

This is where things start to get VERY different from previous Erin Condren Teacher Planners.

At every month tab, you have a lined page and one that looks like this one with a section that is perfect for recording student birthdays or other "Dates To Remember." Last year there were pre-printed events, but these are not included in the current version. For me, many of them were irrelevant because of the differences between US and Canadian holidays, so I'm not disappointed to see these go.

I LOVE that Erin Condren has continued to pepper the pages with inspiring quotes. They always give me a smile.

The next page is the full-month calendar with a sidebar for notes. Here you have some of the "Dates To Remember" that were included on the previous page last year. The boxes are large enough for a good deal of text.

One of the most significant changes in this year's planner is that, for the first time, the pages are pre-dated! I'm thrilled about this! 

There are still seven columns on the page, but the last one is formatted a bit differently. Last year I only needed six subject blocks per day anyway and saved one column for notes, so this layout is perfect for me! 

All of the lesson pages are behind each of the month tabs instead of in a separate section at the end like last year. 

Checklists For Tracking and Extras

The "Checklist" pages are another customizable option. The planner comes with seven pages, but you can add on to have up to 28 included in your planner!

One of the final features of the 2018 Teacher Planner, as always, is the included sticker pages. They are cute, functional, and definitely colorful, complete with foil accents on three of the four pages (compared to two of four last year). These are a fun way to dress up your plans and reminders!

There is a heavy-duty two-sided pocket folder behind the stickers, perfect for storing notes and documents you need to have handy.

One of my favorite features in last year's planner was the vinyl sheet protector pockets at the back of the planner. It comes with one, but you can add up to two additional pockets if you wish.

They are perfect for documents you refer to frequently, like your school year calendar and planning pages.

Additional Accessories Available

My photos above include some additional accessories that can be purchased separately from your 2018 Teacher Planner.

This snap-in dashboard of tiny sticky notes and flags is available in a variety of styles, including this one. I love being able to add (and move around) events to my calendar last-minute with these!

    Thank you soooo much for doing this.

    I am working on my organization (both school and my house). How do you organize your books? Do you do it by theme or by level reading or do you have both?

    Thank you
