Erin Condren Teacher Planner Review and GIVEAWAY

Teacher friends, have you heard about the Erin Condren lesson planner? I first heard about Erin Condren last year through some coworkers of mine at school. 

To be honest, organization is not a natural strength of mine. However, as the new mother of a two-week-old, I have been spending my summer trying to get organized and plan ahead for next school year. Therefore, I took the plunge and ordered my planner (see lovely picture above).

Without further ado, here is my review of the 2016-2017 Erin Condren Teacher Planner:

First of all, I love the teaching is a work of heart design. I also love the free goodies that were included with the purchase (date dot stickers, pen holder, and fine tip markers). I can imagine many long grading sessions next school year with those markers. 

On the inside of the front and back covers there is a dry erase surface for notes and reminders. 

When you open the planner there is a space for your information as well as a log for usernames and passwords. This is definitely going to come in handy as I can never keep track of my login information.

Next there is a page of helpful information for substitutes such as school schedule and people to ask for assistance.

Also included is a list of dates to remember as well as a place to record student birthdays.

In addition to daily lesson plans, a yearlong planning calendar is included as well.

Here is what the daily lesson plan pages look like. 

This is what the calendar pages look like. I love that there is plenty of space to write and that the date stickers are included. I mean what teacher doesn't love stickers?!?!

I also love that there are several student checklists included with the planner which can be used to keep track of grades, assignments, or permission slips. 

One of my absolute favorite features of this planner is all of the storage. Included with the planner is a folder as well as a clear page protector and pouch for additional storage.

Another favorite feature of mine is the reminder stickers. However, I may need more of the testing stickers since that seems to be all we do in third grade. 

I hope you have found this review helpful. To stay connected with Carly and Adam's teaching tips and classroom freebies be sure to follow us on FacebookPinterestTeachers Pay Teachers, and subscribe to our blog!

  1. Is this the one that Cynthia has?

  2. Love your choice of cover! I still write in a paper planner (one I make myself) but I keep looking at the EC ones and wondering if I could make it work for me.

  3. I'm glad I found your blog today! I love Erin Condren's products and would love to have one of her products.

  4. I have been drooling over Erin Condren planners all year long, but I teach a combined 5th/6th grade class (self-contained) and I just don't know if this would work for me and my situation!

    1. I am a sped teacher with 3-5 grade. Every year I buy a pretty planner and then glue my computer based lesson plans in it. The best of both worlds in my opinion since we have to turn in plans electronically any way.

  5. I have been wanting one of these forever!

  6. These planners look amazing! Thanks for giving us a chance to win one! :-)

  7. Hello Carly and Adam. I am so happy to have found you in our FB group today. This planner looks awesome! I am a self-confessed organization junkie! Best wishes with the Rafflecopter!

  8. I've been wanting an EC planner for a while. The colors and patterns are so pretty!

  9. Thank you for this opportunity! Your blog is beautiful!

  10. I've been wanting an EC planner for so long! This may be the year!

  11. Thank you for doing this! I've wanted to try a teacher planner for a while but couldn't justify buying both the life planner AND the teacher planner!
