Free Teacher Planner

I’m a planner. I love color coding our family calendar, booking airplane tickets six months in advance, and getting our holiday shopping done early… just in case.

So it’s probably no surprise that I loved every single second of designing this free teacher planner for you. It’s packed with helpful planning and organization pages you’ll use all year long. The type A in me went wild!

Snag your FREE teacher planner and then hop over and join The Plato Pack so you can save time, stay inspired and give EVERY student bigger results all year long.

Colorful Teacher Planner Covers

Inside the colorful freebie, you’ll find ten bright and bold covers.

Pick a favorite, click the grey text box to type in your name, and print it out. Easy peasy.

Tons of Organization Pages

The download includes tons of sheets to keep you super organized from day one.

And my favorite part is that the pages are editable!

Plus I even included several different options for the planning sheets so you can pick one that is the best fit for your daily schedule – from four subjects all the way up to eight.

    How can I make the font smaller on the weekly lesson plan pages?

      Hi Karen,
      First, please be sure that you are editing the planner using Adobe. It is the the only reader that will ensure that our products and freebies download and print correctly.
      The font size should automatically reduce to fit the space.
      Please keep in mind some sections of the planner are editable, while others are not.
      If you have any other questions, feel free to email me at hello@playdoughtoplato.com

      Hi Rebecca,
      I’m sorry you’re having trouble editing.
      First, please be sure you are trying to edit the document in Adobe. It is the only program that ensures our products can be downloaded, edited, and printed correctly.
      Also, please check that you are working with the file that has been downloaded and saved to your computer – not just the preview file.
      If you still can’t get it to work, please email me at hello@playdoughtoplato.com
      Warmly,

    Hi,
    Thanks for the planner! I really like it! I’m a first year teacher and I’ve been looking for something to use.
    The colors are fabulous!
    I’ve downloaded the file, and the fonts, but every time I try to type my name on the cover, the font doesn’t match at all. Everything is off! I can’t get anything to change. Suggestions?
    Thanks!

    Hello! I found the free planner last night and after downloading it, went to bed. I have had no wifi all day, and now, when I can finally get on, I cannot find it anywhere. It’s like it never existed. Is it possible to have it resent or re-download it?

    I love this – thank you for making it available! In your description, you say there are pages for up to 8 subjects but the download only has templates for 4 or 5; is there another file that has the additional templates? Also, is there a way to type titles for each subject on the left hand side of the subjects?

      Hi Genevieve,
      Thanks for reaching out.
      Sorry about that. When we updated the file for this year, we modified the subject spaces. However, Malia just updated the file to include the 8-subject planning page. You can grab the updated file by clicking that download here button again.
      Unfortunately, there’s not a way to add editable subject boxes on the left hand side because the text would need to be horizontal and we can’t flip the text boxes in Adobe. 🙁

    Your planner is great!! I have 22 students in my class though and there are only spaces for 16. I was just wondering how do I might get another page for additional students?

    Reply
    • Malia Hollowell

      Great question, Ruth-Lynne! The easiest work around is to print off two sheets – they can even be front to back. Your first 16 students will go on the first page and your last 6 will land on the second page. I hope that helps! 🙂
