My 2013-2014 Chevron Teacher Planner

I am seriously just SO thrilled about this. I created and sold teacher planners last year. I still need to update those 3 designs for the 2013-2014 school year, but I decided to create a chevron print for next year that I am using myself. I put it all together this week and am in love with it. I already have several orders from teachers at my school to have the same thing.

The binder is from Staples. It's a Martha Stewart Discbound Notebook. I chose to go with this rather than having my files bound because I can add/remove pages at any time, and reuse this notebook base every year. {I did have to purchase the Arc punch, but it's so worth it.} I also upgraded the disc size so that I could add more to my notebook. {I'm going from an Erin Condren teacher planner and a 1" binder for curriculum, to one book.}

I love that the notebook has an elastic band to keep it closed, as well as a pen holder on the side. The notebook came with lined note pages inside, which I removed. It also came with a clear, poly pocket, which I moved to the back. The divider tabs are also from Staples and from the Martha Stewart Discbound system.

I did print all of the pages myself. I purchased 32 lb. paper to print on. It holds better and prints better. I don't have to worry about bleed through with this paper - for printer ink or pens.

This is the monthly curriculum map. I'm so thrilled to map everything out for next year!

The weekly planning pages are already prefilled with dates/times, but are completely editable in a PowerPoint file that's included.

This section is for the Utah State Core Curriculum. I've included all of the pages, printed back to back.

I purchased an Arc 2-pack of poly-zip pockets as well. Arc is Staples' discbound brand, and is cheaper than the Martha Stewart system.

I have uploaded this teacher planner set to TPT. The file has 183 slides/pages. The cost is $15, but I currently have it on an introductory sale for $12 until Sunday, June 2. The best thing about this planner is that I will update it every summer. All you need to do is redownload it after the updates have been added. You purchase for a one time price and receive any additions and changes for free.

{If you've purchased any of the 3 other planner sets, they will be updated soon.}
