2015 Erin Condren Teacher Planner {Part 2: Review}

If you haven't had the chance to watch me unbox this year's Erin Condren Teacher Planner, be sure you get started HERE. This video will help explain some of the pieces and parts that are a part of my planner bundle!


I am so excited to be walking through the 2015 Erin Condren Teacher Planner with you, sharing some of my favorite tips and tricks, and showing you some tweaks to personalize it even more!

Walk-Through Video

Here's a video to get you started. It walks through each of the sections more in-depth and includes how I adjust certain parts:


Inspiration & Parent Contact Freebie

I hope these headers can help you rethink the sections of your planner you may not use as much! Here is a close-up of the before and afters of each of the pages:


Ooops! The "Before" pic was taken after I had covered up the months with the stickers. Sorry about that!
You can grab the freebie containing both of these files HERE on Google Docs.

Using Stickers & Pens


There will be *tons* more posts about these great stickers and pens as the school year approaches and plans get filled in. Here are some of my initial ideas, though. If you're interested in how I number my students, click HERE. Below is a sampling of their pens in my Life Planner :)


Subject Headers, Washi Tape & Notes Pages


I mentioned the subject headers, washi tape, and more from last year's planner tips. Because those haven't changed, be sure to head to the original post HERE to see them in action and to pick up your feeebies!

Look Book, Sales & Coupons

For an even more in-depth look at the full line of school products from Erin Condren, be sure to view the Look Book HERE.

I'm excited to let you know that there is currently a 25% off sale for these Teacher Planners! Use the code TEACH25 until July 19th!

Would you also like $10 off your first order? For a coupon, be sure to sign up through my affiliate link HERE: 3rd.gr/erin_condren.

I'll be back throughout the year as more things begin to take shape. Keep you eyes on my Instagram account for updates as I fill in the blanks. Have fun with these freebies and I can't wait to see how you make this planner your own!

  1. I am about to watch your second video now! I have been using the Life Planner for the last 6 months, and am waiting for my Teacher Planner in the mail! I will definitely be re-doing some of it to better fit my needs, but I can't WAIT! :)

    1. The differences between the old and new are so minimal, you can still use all of these ideas and be a-ok! I am glad she doesn't change the formatting that much-- I am such a creature of habit :) Thanks so much for your comment and happy planning!

  4. I love the personalization. I made my own planner this year because I couldn't find one I loved but changing pages would have been so much easier. I'm going to start colour-coding the edges of my semesters too. Also, have you tried the erasable pens from Pilot (I'm not affiliated with them in any way)? I love them for my planner because they come in lots of fun colours and actually erase.

  6. I ordered my first planner and will admit I was worried. It is a lot of money. However, after seeing this post I feel so much better about it. I now know I can customize it to better fit me and the freebies you put up are great. I am now even more excited about getting my planner in. Thanks so much!!!!

  7. Are there 3 note pages after each month like in last years planner or just one on the back of the month?

    1. GREAT question, Danielle! There is only one notes page on the back of each monthly calendar, not three like last year's. Thanks for asking, since I completely spaced on that change!!

    1. On the back of each month there is a notes page. I put stickers on them and divide it up by subject-- there's a picture of this on last year's post. Last year there were three pages and this year there's only one. Hope that helps!
