Simple Art Education Planners for the 2017-2018 School Year

Summer has flown by, folks!  As much as we like to grimace at the back-to-school departments popping up at the big-box stores in mid-July, we're also all shopping in the back-to-school departments (but only to get that really cute item!).

If you're like me, you're already thinking about the shape of next year. What projects will you teach? When will you teach them? How will you organize all those kids? And, you know, maybe this year you'll finally get that sub folder thing going. Or not. Whatever.

With that in mind, I made a "2017-2018 Art Education Planner for K-12 Teachers," and I've listed it on Teachers Pay Teachers for $10 (available by clicking here).

It's a simple, straightforward planner designed with the art educator in mind.

- K-5 grade art education 6-week lesson planner
- 6-8 grades art education 6-week lesson planner
- 6-HS grades art education 6-week lesson planner
- HS grades art education 6-week lesson planner
- 12 month (July 17-July 18) calendar (each month is a 2-page spread) for planning
- 2 page spread grade-book with slots for 37 students
- daily schedule
- weekly schedule
- seating chart
- 5 different covers to choose from!

All files are in PDF format. If you open the files in Adobe Acrobat Reader, there are options to edit the files (for example, you could type in student names for the grade-book instead of writing them; but this is all your choice!).

You'll need:
- 3-ring binder to keep these items organized
- binder tabs for section organization (optional)

Tips:
- The 12-month calendar is designed to be printed front-to-back
- Make multiple copies of the grade-book pages; one for each class etc.
- Make multiple copies of the art education 6-week planner; 1 for each grading period

- These print beautifully in color OR black and white

I've included a few previews below. . .And, if you want something more generalized, I've put together a similar planner (sans the 6-week art education lesson planners) called, " 2017-2018 Teacher Planner for K-12 Grades" for $8 (available by clicking here).
