Personalized Lesson Planners

Aloha everyone!  The end of summer is approaching and many of us are back in school.  I know that many of you don't start until after Labor Day!  (Jealous!)

Recently I have been getting many questions and emails on my Personalized Lesson planners.  Most people want to know how to set it up, how to print it and where to get it bound.  I decided to put together a post today so that all that information is on one place.

All of my planners are editable in Powerpoint.  Here is a video explaining how to open your file and set it up how you want.

After I get my planner together.  I print it out on my home printer.  I have this HP PhotoSmart 6515 printer that I bought from Costco for about $80.

It has a feature that allows me to print double sided copies.

When I select print this is what I see.  I check Two-Sided.  The preview shows me that the page is not to scale.  So I select Paper Size-US Letter.

I click on US Letter Borderless.  This will scale it to fit the paper with no white lines around it.

Now the preview shows me that the entire page will be printed without the white border around it.

The paper I used is a heavier weight paper than just regular Xerox paper.  It is a 24lb inkjet paper.

I got a ream for pretty cheap at Costco and I have also ordered it on

I print the whole thing and then I take the cover and the back and laminate them both.  I use my home laminator and trim the excess off.

 I take it to Office Max and have it spiral bound.  It costs $3.

I love my new planner and have gotten tons of compliments on it from my co-workers.
I have lots of designs to choose from in my TpT shop.

Hopefully this post will help you with all of your planner needs.  Now you're set to create your personal planner to get you ready for a fantastic new year.
