I really love the teacher planners. There is lots of space for me to write and I can design each page to suit my needs for the week. I also like that I can draw on the outside to make it my own.
I'm on my second year using the lesson plan book and it has been a game changer! There was a problem with my most recent lesson plan book and the company not only replaced the planner, but sent me an AMAZING assortment of additional materials! It was a genius business move because now I am hooked on even more of their school supplies! If you are on the fence about the large post-its....GET THEM!
I love how flexible and modern the design of your planner is. I have been able to make it work perfectly for me. I like that it will be easy to recyle, and I also like how slender and easy to store/carry the lack of spiral binding and plastic tabs make it. No distracting colors. Just a great, lightly structure clean slate for keeping my classes organized and sitting down to think and plan.
The Academic/Teacher Planner is visually stunning in its minimalism, and is the perfect size to actually be practical. It strikes an ideal balance between form and function.
And when I reached out to Wisdom regarding the availability of a different color, I received prompt personalized help with my order. They were really wonderful to work with.
I am a notebook & planner nerd - I collect them !! -and am always looking for THE ONE that I will use all year .
Love the concept of Wisdom , and the mission, the type font and layout and paper and design etc - all awesome - BUT it is so hard to roll back the pages and keep in place I find hard to write in and work with - especially deeper into the book becomes impossible to keep it open flat - so I would only buy again if the binding was adjusted to improve this .
Thanks so much for your review and apologies for the trouble with getting the planner to lie flat.
Our recommendation is to really break it in (like doing squats in a new pair of jeans) - Even going so far as to bend the whole book open so the two covers touch in the back - It's our way of 'conditioning' the binding so it becomes more flexible with use. To date this is how we address making a sturdy book that is 100% recyclable after use - We'll perfect it over time, but thank you for being an early adopter and for choosing recyclable over convenience-disposables!
