Art Teacher Planner -2016-2017

Art Teacher Planner

IMG_0333

Planners have always been a love of mine. I love looking at all the beautiful ones available out there to purchase. The only problem is they are not tailored to us art teachers. I mean, who has a schedule like ours? I just don’t want a calendar, nor do I want to pay a ton of money for a high end planner. Plus, I need to have something to turn in for my evaluations. Sound familiar? So after a year of brainstorming ideas and testing out what my planner needed, I have decided to design one especially for Art Teachers! Planning your art program while organizing your life has never been easier!

What’s Inside?

Monthly Calendars

IMG_0338-002

 

To help you organize your ideas before each month there is a sheet with four, fun sections to jot down your thoughts and goals.

IMG_0356

 

Plus a reproducible inspiration mini poster before each month. Print, color and hang in your classroom if you so desire! IMG_0329

Art teachers are creative people, so we designed each month with a different black and white pattern to decorate  and color how you want! Don’t have the time to decorate? Leave it in its black and white design and use colorful fine markers to fill your appointments in each month’s calendar.

Weekly Fillable Lesson Plans Form

Included in this planner is a weekly lesson plan for you to document your schedule. For greater ease the weekly lesson plan sheet is fillable. Save time by cutting, copying and pasting, especially if you might repeat lessons with different classes. Included are 2 different weekly lesson plan formats. Choose from 7 sections or 11 sections for each day of the week.

 

Individual Fillable Lesson Plan Form and Checklist2016-08-27 10.35.04

Need to create individual lesson plans? We have created a simple lesson plan form containing checklists of various items that your lesson must address including materials, assessments, modifications, elements and principals of art to name just a few. Time is precious to us all so these fillable lesson plans need to be concise and the checklist boxes do just that.

Reproducible Handouts

These handouts are a necessity in my Art Room:
•Art Room Sign Out Sheet – know who is leaving the room, when and what time.

•Classroom events – this page is great for documenting class parties, early dismissals, programs and field trips that effect your classes.

•Vocabulary Words – these tie in with my colorful word wall. Use these sheets as a helpful planning guide for lessons in your Scope and Sequence or reproduce for classroom use.

•Parent Contact Sheet – important when you need to document conversations, letters sent home, etc.

•Artist Statements – perfect for your artists to document their thoughts and feelings about their artwork. Just take this handout out of your planner and copy the amount you need or just print from your pdf from the computer.

•Substitute Notes – helpful information for your substitute but designed for the Art Specialist.

•Art Room Layout I get asked every year to create a new layout page for my custodians. I am tired of the little pencil scratches on paper so we designed this so you can print, cut out and arrange your classroom.

Also included are these must have handouts!

•The Elements of Art
•The Principles of Design

IMG_0348

Don’t know what to order? The Ultimate Art Supply List along with Classroom Inventory Log will aid in your supply ordering and make sure you don’t run out of your important materials.

•Color Wheel handout contains all the key terms for teaching color theory.

Plus
•A Notes page to write down notes and important tidbits.

 

 

National Art Standards Checklist

IMG_0355

To help aid in your scope and sequence, along with your individual lesson plans, I have included the National Art Standards Checklist. I use this simplified checklist and it has been included in many of my lessons available on Teachers Pay Teachers. It is quite helpful when preparing your lessons.

Scope and Sequence – Pacing Guide

IMG_0350

Remember, this Art Teacher Planner is to help keep you organized. Here is something that will help in planning out your school year and curriculum. Scope and Sequence. The Scope and Sequence pages are intended as worksheets for you to write down lesson ideas based on The Elements of Art, The Principles of Design, Art History, or Thematic Units. It is also a place to write down what you have already taught and what lessons are next. This aids in not repeating the same subject matter, or artist, culture or art historical time period. This is a great tool to gather your topics for themes and build projects. This is the foundation blocks of your art program.

•FILABLE Grade Sheets
I always hated that I had more students than slots. I have included 32 slots for student names along with Dates/Week and Assignments. This was very important to my planner since I also teach middle school. Reproduce as many sheets as you need for your own specialized Art Planner.

IMG_0352

When printing I suggest using at least 28lb paper. The thicker paper is more durable. The planner is laid out to print front and back on 8.5″ x 11″ paper. You can choose to print single sided if so desired.

Assembling The Art Teacher Planner

IMG_0357

 

I suggest some inexpensive items to complete assembling your planner. I purchased a 1.5 inch 3 ring binder with clear pockets on the front. Here you can slide in your cover. Also, I printed out some small labels for color coded index dividers with and without pockets.

IMG_0332

I have experienced through my years as an Art Teacher that budgets are small and time is valuable. I purposely chose a black and white layout to keep your printing costs down. PLUS, knowing how creative you are, I considered how you would want to decorate and personalize the Art Teachers Planner your way!

Only the Planner Covers are in color.

    Would love to purchase this, but I have a eight period day & I really need the eight squares in the planner, plus the date square to write notes. I know it’s probably a bit nit picky, but that’s what I’m used to.

    Are the planners editable? Meaning will I be able to open the class roster pages and type in the names of students on the computer?

      Hi Jenn, The planner is digital so you print out what you need then separate the sections how you want. I will be creating a video on how to assemble the planner. Stay tuned. 🙂

          Hi Cassie! There is a video that shows the planner. The link is in the blog post towards the bottom of the post. Basically the planner is set to print, the pages are back to back just like a preprinted planner comes. If your printer does not have that ability than the pages will come out single sided. Just punch the 3 ring holes in and it is ready to go. Let me know if you have any questions. Hope your are having a terrific school year. 🙂

      Hi, Kim,
      Not sure, this this is a PDF. We recommended using the FREE Adobe Reader for accessing and printing. 🙂

    I love it! Quick, question…were there supposed to be repeated words for the media as it is for the elements and principles? In Texas, we have different State objectives, do you plan on tailoring these in the future to our state standards? These are awesome, keep up the great work!

      Karen, so glad you like the planner. As of now I am keeping the planner based off the National Standards so it is more compatible for all states. We are adding more handouts and visuals for the upcoming year. Stay tuned.

    Laura,
    Are the lesson plan pages editable using Word, Google Doc or Pages? Or does one ‘handwrite’ the plans in??

      Hi Jean, It is a PDF so you just need Adobe Acrobat Reader, which is free, to be able to type in your data. I know some teachers like to hand write in their lessons so I know many who are printing the lesson plan sheets and writing the lessons in. You can do it either way. It is made so you can organize it any way you would like. 🙂

    Laura,

    This is such an accomplishment. I have always said I would try to create my own but never have gotten around to it. Kudos to you! I was wondering if you have a version for high school? Also if you have one with the High school National Standards? Thank you so much for being a rock star in creating this

      Aww thank-you for the lovely comment. Yes, I really put a lot of time into this planner. I was so tired of art teachers not having items geared for us! At this time, I do not a version for high school but will definitely look into creating one. xox ~Laura

    If the lesson exceeds the space on the page will the box expand to accommodate. Also we have more things to include on our plans, is it possible to edit and create a new box or two for additional items?

      Hi Veronica, Yes, the boxes expand as you type more information. When used in Adobe Acrobat Reader, a scroll bar will appear to the right. At this time you can not edit or add new boxes to the layout. You might want to consider using the single lesson plan if you have additional information to add to a specific lesson. If you need more spaces consider using the 10 space layout instead of the 7 space layout. Also, I purchased small stickers from Michaels to apply to my planner for special days or important events. 🙂 Have a great school year!

        I am having trouble saving a lesson plan. It saves the entire document. Can you email me directly so I can figure out what I’m doing wrong?
