I'm excited to be linking up with Holly at Fourth Grade Flipper for her Tried it Tuesday linky party!
There has been a lot of talk out there in blog land about teacher planners. I know a lot of you have ordered an Erin Condren planner and I think they are absolutely beautiful! I have been to her website at least five times to order one for myself, but I can't quite seem to let go of the $59 that they cost.
I use my iPad a lot when I am teaching and planning so I am also thinking about using an online planner such as PlanbookEdu.com. I tried this site about two years ago and am giving some serious consideration to going back.
PlanbookEdu.com allows teachers to input their lesson plans and store them online. This means they can be accessed from any place that has an internet connection. So if you have to stay home from school because the kids (or your) are sick, you can go online to find your lesson plans. No more carrying home a lesson plan binder "just in case."
The basic plan is FREE and that is the one I used two years ago. It met all of my needs. However, for $25, you can get more of the bells and whistles: Common Core standards, sharing plans with others, printing from your browser, attaching files, etc.
What do you think about an online planner? Do you have any experience with this site that you could share some thoughts?
Head on over to Holly's linky party and check out the other great "tried its!"
