Description

Planbook.com allows you to enter and edit your lesson plans, and view your plans by week, day, month, or class lesson list. Schedule changes are dynamic, as you can bump lessons forward or back, extend lessons, or delete lessons, and your schedule will adjust accordingly.

Additional features include:

In iPad and iPhone:

- Add and report on state and national standards, including Common Core State Standards
- Attach links to your lessons
- Add your school calendar (planning days, holidays, assemblies, snow days, etc.) and your own events (student birthdays, team meetings, field trips, etc.)
- Print your plans or save to a PDF file
