Organization Pages

The teacher planner also includes tons of sheets to keep you super organized from day one.

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

    1. 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

  3. I am able to download the document fine but I am unable to edit the document – when I attempt to it asks for a password.

    1. 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

  4. 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?

    1. Hi Suzanne,
      We’re thrilled that you love the planner.
      To ensure you can enter your name with the correct font, please check to be sure you are editing the file in Adobe.

  5. 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?

    1. Just emailed you Shannon 🙂
      Let me know if I can be of any further help!

  6. 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?

    1. 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. 🙁

  7. 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?

    1. 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! 🙂

  8. Hello! I just wanted to thank you for making this Lesson Planner free and available. I am feeling a bit better about heading into the new year now. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    1. YAY!! I am SO HAPPY to hear that the lesson planner is helping you feel more optimistic about this year. I know there is still a lot of uncertainty about it will look like, but please know that I’ll be cheering you on every step of the way. I’m here for you!
