There is something comforting about having your teaching diary purchased and sitting at home ready to go for the next school year! It almost feels like everything else you have on your plate will fall into place, once your teaching planner lands in your hands.

Am I right?

Plus, you can’t miss the amazing collection of teacher planners out there, however, it can get a little overwhelming.

There is no doubt about it… they all look amazing, but, will the layout suit your needs?

Perhaps you are a new graduate teacher and would benefit from one whole page per day to really plan out every teaching session.

Or, perhaps you just want a week view on each page. Some of us like to write things down and others would prefer to have it all saved on our computer.

Either way, organisation is key!

Printing Costs + $8 for Binding

Printable Teacher Diary

Well, if you’re anything like me…this is definitely my preferred option. With the advancement of technology around, nothing beats pen and paper for me!

Download and print our huge collection of teacher planner templates suitable to your needs. Then, head to your local newsagent or Officeworks store to have it bound. Simple!

Here’s what’s inside my ultimate design:


Mine cost all of $8 at my local newsagent. Yes, you have the printing costs. But, I just printed it on normal white paper here at the office. I did print the cover and a few pages in between each term in a thicker paper to keep it more sturdy, but that’s it!

You may like to splurge a bit more and use a stronger binding ring. This is up to you, there are many options around.

Here are the templates I used to create my teacher planner:

Choose Your Style!

We have a range of designs to suit what you like! Click on the images below to see the whole resource pack available for each diary design.

This has been our most popular style, bright, vibrant and fun!

Our gorgeous ‘funky chalkboard’ theme was also a hit! Don’t worry, we have thought about printing and the whole diary does not use a black background. Just the front cover for a fantastic visual effect.

If you’re into something a little more calmer, with soft colours than our angles design is the one for you!

A few years ago you sent me a free printed A5 Planner with 3 days on one page and 2 days on the other. It had the Chevron pattern. I love it and need 2 more. I liked it because it didn’t have any dates in it. I see that the templates above appear to be printed in A4. Can it be easily converted into A5 format? It is better for fitting into my hand bag in this size.

Hi Pamela, thanks for your comment. Currently, our templates are all set up to be printed in A4 size as this is the most popular. Though you can, of course, have it professionally printed in A5 size. Alternatively, if you are printing it, you can print to pages to one A4 page which would give you the A5 size you are after. I hope this helps!

Fantastic resource! Which template has the term dividers (i.e. chevron border with Term 1 in the centre) with the chevron border? I can’t seem to locate it and would love to divide my planner by term.
