2012-2013 Day-At-A-Glance Lesson Template

October 21, 2012
Hi guys! Today I’ve been reworking my old Day-At-A-Glance Lesson Plan Template from last year. It looked like this…

…and I was very happy with it! So much in fact, I even kept on using it this year. But it did need some tweaking.

So now I have this…

My schedule’s pretty different this year and has taken a lot of adjusting (as you might be able to see from the notes above). The biggest changes I made are the boxes for Opening, Work Period, and Closing. I wanted it to be easier to see when I was going over my plan for the day…instead of a bunch of writing squished into one box (like I had last year). I’m hoping this will help.
I know everyone’s schedule is so different, but in case you would like a template to rearrange to your liking, I’ve shared it below (it’s  a Powerpoint file).
If you’d like to use the same fonts, they are Belly Button Innie and Coffee Shoppe Espresso.
And here’s the file…

Thanks for visiting!

    Thanks for inspiring me to tweak my plan book. I currently have a template I created but it looks like the "old fashion" plan book! LOL! I use Reader's Workshop/CAFE/Daily 5 but I've been struggling with how to write the plans. It just doesn't work for me! Yours has given me some ideas! THANKS so much for sharing!

    Thanks for sharing the way your plans work for you. It's funny that you posted this as it was a conversation on my team on Friday~ the need to tweak what we have!
    Changing my planbook is on my agenda to get to soon!

    I love them. I wish I could plan like this. I am seriously gonna take a good look at it to see if I can do a whole day on one page. Currently I am doing one page per grade level.

    Perfect timing too cause I am planning for this week right now. Talk about procrastination. 😛

    Thank you for sharing! I understand why I have to write the uber detailed plans that my district requires of us for each lesson (i.e.: CCSS, Learning Objective, What the Teacher will do, What the students will do, materials, differentiation, assessment…..) but I miss my old block schedule where I could see at a glance how my day is going to play out. I love your idea I think I will just add it as a cover for the district required 15 pages of plans and I'll finally know what the heck I'm doing each day. Thanks again for the inspiration!
