Looking for some lesson planning templates that are digital and free? Planning for the 2022-2023 school year remains challenging in many ways. Let me walk you through how to use this free airtable template to layout your month or even your year at a glance.
How do you like to plan? Digitally or with pen and paper?
As parents and teachers, we want to make the best plans we can. We each have our own preferred style and format. In an earlier post, I shared how I prefer to plan on paper rather than use a calendar or spreadsheet online. I had a free template you could download as well as a calendar I used to plan a year’s worth of social skills lessons. Read more about planning for back to school using pen and paper and grab those free downloads.
This week, I want to share a lesson planning template that is an online option that I am just learning how to use myself, airtable. For now, I only have the free version, so it does limit my ability somewhat to play with different colors and fill options. But, the functionality is great, and I know many of you prefer to work online, so I am sharing the template I developed with you so that you have a starting point. From this base, you can tweak and make this planning calendar your own.
Using airtable as a lesson planning template
Below is a video walking you through the template. (This is the video from 2021-2022, but the template has been updated to 2022-2023.) It seemed the best way to communicate my vision with you. This template also includes:
- my year long social skills calendar
This short video will give you a good idea of how the airtable lesson planning template looks and functions. There is a lot you can do in airtable, especially if you upgrade to the paid version, but I find this free version very helpful. I use a planning calendar on airtable for one aspect of my business, and it works great. Grab the link below to start customizing your own online planning calendar for the 2022-2023 school year.
This next short video shows you how to take the link and make your own copy that you can start customizing today!!
