Planbook- What do you use?

I have been looking at plan book ideas this summer and debating about the best one. In the past I've used an Evan Moor plan book purchased from my local teacher store. I liked it but have seen so many "better" ideas on TpT and other places. My question is this, What do you use?

I type up my lesson plans in Word. They are always changing, so I can't imagine writing them down!

I use www.planbook.com

I like being able to type out my lessons, add standards from a drop down menu and then print out when I'm done. I have used it for 2 years now and will use it again next year.

I also use a format I created in Word.My handwriting is pretty bad, so typing everything is the best for me. I put the pages in a binder, so I can add relevant things as I go along. That way, the next year I can refer to the binder to see if I want to use anything I used the previous year. I am thinking of using planbook.com though. Looks cool.

Regular Plan Book

I tried planbook.com my first year, but didn't like it. Last year I went with just a traditional planbook with the boxes. Our school has several for free that we can take if we want to use them. I liked that best. On odd weeks, especially those when the schedule was all messed up or a vacation was coming up and we had to get things done, I did it on word as a schedule, so it looked something like this:

Monday

8:00-8:30-Subject-plan
8:30-______-Subject-plan
etc.

I also do mine online using planbook.com. I like that I can set the format for some things that happen every week and it carries over so I'm not rewriting the same things. I also like that I can add in our state standards and CC standards from the drop down menu so I don't have to look them up. I've used it for 2 years now.

I do the same as grammam. It allows me to type in links, have my computer connected to the projector and with one click on my lesson plan I can be to any site I want to incorporate in a lesson. Then it's there for next year.

Add me to the Planbook.com users. I -love- being able to add the standards as I write my lessons. I also like the feature that shows which standards have been addressed (or not) and how often. I use the 'notes' section for all types of things - materials needed, student strengths/weaknesses, progress towards goals. If I need to print out plans, I can omit the notes section if student privacy is a concern (I am special ed).

Another vote for planbook.com. As a sped teacher with schedules that change this is the best option. I keep all of my documentation in there for parent contact, meetings, professional development.

I looked at it and will definitely use it this coming year. I can't believe that the standards are right there...it's an amazing tool. I never thought about it being linked to the smartboard and just clicking a link to go to a resource. Brilliant! I needed something to excite me for the coming year..thanks!

On the computer. It makes my life so much easier. I do not have to retype things that stay the same week to week.

I used a word document last year but I thanks to discussion here I checked out planbook.com. I will definitely be using that this coming year. I have already started entering my plans into it. It doesn't matter if I have to switch dates because I can just bump or extend depending on how things work out in the classroom.

I love planbookedu.com. Like others have said, it's so easy to have your plans on the iPad and have a link to something to open up. You can type in your own school standards and/or use common core standards. I also like that it shows how often you taught a standard. If I only taught something 2-3 times, it reminds me to work on that some more. It eliminates the very time consuming curriculum mapping that we used to have to do.

Question for planbook.com
Old 07-14-2013, 05:49 PM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #17

I like plan book.com, but we're required to upload copies of our lesson plans to our public drive on our school network. Can the plans be saved or exported to word or pdf? Are they also correlated to the common core? Thanks if you can answer my questions. The membership seems very reasonable and I love all the options to customize & add information. Thanks to all for sharing.

Hi Aderynbach.
I make a table and fill it in with pencil. I'm posting because it might make sense to you.

I'm sorry I wasn't clear in my statement. Like Grammam, I create my own. I started with a basic table. The first year it was a bit time consuming getting it just the way I wanted it. It was worth the time. I always work off of my lesson plan on the computer but also make a copy just in case we have a tech issue at school some day.
Adding the links is as simple as typing the address in. When I want to use it, I just click. If I am using a certain book on Reading A-Z I just plant the address in my plans and can have that projectable book up in a flash.
I did look at planbook.com before making my own and it looks like a fine offering. I'm guessing you can plant links in it as well.

I do the same as you. However, I hadn't thought about adding links to sites I might like to use. Great idea! Thanks for posting!

Yes, KCJ, you can save the plans as PDF. You can also give your administration your code and they can go in and see your plans at any time. There is also a seperate code you can give students and families so they can go in and see what they may have missed or get worksheets if you have attached them to the lessons.

planbook and linking

I emailed Planbook to see if I could link. They replied immediately. You can link! Thank you to pp who gave me the idea to check.

"Yes, you can add links to your plans. To do this, first type some text that you would like the link displayed as in your lesson edit window. Once you have that, you will highlight the text and click on the small chain icon. This will bring you to the screen where you may enter in your link."
