As a teacher, your job is unique. You spend hours coming up with lessons that appeal to each student and their learning style. You arrive at work well before your students and leave long after they’ve left. You often tote homework home and correct it after your own children have gone to bed. You aren’t typically paid for these long hours of preparation, but you do it because you value your students, you value education, and you value a job well done. You also value your time. With a few planning supplies, you’ll be more effective with the time you have. Here are our top five “teacher favorites”.

Its two-page weekly layout offers an expansive grid with a subtle color scheme designed to cover up to six class periods each school day, with a smaller grid for the weekend.
