What is Lesson Planner?
The built-in lesson planner allows teachers to strengthen their intentional teaching practices and build daily and weekly plans based on their unique daily schedules. Administrators can review, approve, and edit plans. Create a rich personal library of instructional activities, which can easily be shared and reused. All lessons can be connected to your specific curriculum frameworks, state standards, or even the COR Advantage assessment items.

Accessing Lesson Planner
Setting Up Your Classroom Schedule
You can edit your classroom schedule sections at any time! Please note that each week will lock on Sunday night, preserving the setup and work you did during that period. Therefore, you will want to make any section changes on Monday morning to avoid losing any lessons! When you first access this feature, this is what you will see:
In the far left column are default sections, and in the planner, you'll see plus signs, where you can add in all of the lessons for each day by section.
The first thing you'll want to do is change the sections to reflect how your day is organized. Editing this column will change the Lesson Planner for everyone in your classroom. Click on the grey pencil next to Sections to rename, move, and delete the default offerings:
Adding and Editing Lessons
Click on any plus sign to add a lesson.
You can either create a new lesson with a title, description, steps, supplies, and tags. Or you can search through all of the lessons that have been created in your classroom to use them again!
You can also click into a lesson you have created to view it, or edit it at any time, just click into the lesson, then click on the pencil in the top right corner. Editing a lesson will not change the version you used in past weeks, but it will change it in the current week, and moving forward! If you want to make different versions, we suggest using the duplicate option!
Sharing Your Lessons
Prepare for your day and week with customizable print views. Print and share weekly and daily summaries, full lessons, or even generate a supply list based on all the materials in your lesson plans for the day or week. If you want to share your lessons with your families, select the paper airplane icon at the top right of the page! You'll be able to share your daily lessons, a weekly summary, and even your supply list with your families!
