This is an Erin Condren haul. However, these things were actually sent to me by the team at Erin Condren. One of these things is something I wouldn’t normally buy for myself and I’ll explain why and soon as I open it and then some of the other things I was really excited to see, and I’m excited to see everything to be completely honest.
These are things that I’ve never seen before and some of their new releases. This is a teacher themed haul, so these are just kind of my basic first impressions. I know the paper quality is the same, so I’m not going to be doing a pen test today, but let’s open it and see what I got I like all I’ve done is just here I’ll show you I just like lifted this and peek inside to make Sure it’s the right order and then I was like okay, I’m covering up the address and I am filming this bad boy roof.
So, let’s open this up, I know it’s going to look kind of crooked for a minute, but you get the create your own sunshine and it’s like a little postcard, which is great, and this feels different like it feels very, like silky compared to the other ones, Which is kind of cool and then unenjoyable of these, and then, if we open it up, I can never open it up like really nicely dum-dum-dum. Alright, let me pull all this stuff out of here, because I don’t like the crinkly sound when I do the article and let’s just keep on going so this is what I wanted to show you guys.
This is oh my gosh. I can’t like so many things on my desk here. Oh no, oh no things are falling down. Oh no things are falling, oh okay, hold on alright. Are we good? No we’re not we’re still, not good. Okay. Here it goes yeah. So here it is. This is the teacher lesson planner yeah look at this. It is so big you guys. Let me show you first scale, so this is my regular, like 7 by 9 Erin Condren planner, and let me just like put it right in the corner here.
So that’s the difference in size scale, crazy right. I think I like this big one. I think this is cool um, but anyway this is my like regular planner, but I just wanted to like pull that out for size. You still get one of these clip-in rulers, which has the protective film on it. I got the colorful pencils design, color away. I did not get it personalized because if you guys know me, I’m not like really into that much personalization, but you know I wanted to look at this.
It also has like the dry erase, so you can do this just like a regular one, and then you open up the first page and it says teacher lesson planner. This book belongs to so let’s just do like a little walkthrough of this, because I’ve never seen this before, and I want to know what’s in it too so anyway. This is just like a nice information page that has just like all of your contact information. Your classroom resources, the web resources and passwords classroom events and volunteers date and event, information, and I like how it has like all these little tabs to just like the regular planner, but it has like different types of tabs communication.
Log you’ve got 2018-2019 a lot of people like to use like little transparent, dots and put like a key up at the top or the bottom, just like in your you know the regular 7 by 9 life planner and then you’ve got your year plan. So you’ve got January through December and then we go along to graph paper. So we’ve got a couple of sheets of that yeah, a few sheets of graph paper, oh and then there’s some lined pages, and then this starts July on the front page of the July monthly view is just a bunch of lines which is nice and then also Dates to remember, if you’ve got like things going on or conferences or special meetings, or something like that nice to know, and then here is the month view and I like how, in the new planners for 2018 2019, they have included in the bottom right hand corner The next month, so you can kind of like look ahead, a little bit which is really great and then we’ve got all of our days, so you’ve got Monday through Friday and then you’ve got six different categories here.
So you’ve got one two three four five six and then you’ve got kind of a blank category which you could make like a seventh category, or it could be like a total of our Italian like that. So it’s just Monday through Friday and then also there’s just these little little lines. So it gives you a little bit of a guide which is nice, so if you’re, actually writing or if you’re, using stickers or whatever you’re trying to do so.
That happens for all of the weeks it looks like and then what happens at the end of the month. Okay, so the end of the month, you get two lined pages, which is fabulous, oh and then also when you flip to the next month, then you got more line pages, the dates to remember and then into August. So it goes like this until May of next year or sorry June of next year. I’m sorry, I didn’t. I can’t see y’all.
So let’s get to the end of June, alright! So we’re at the end of June here and then we’ve got oh. This is really nice. We’ve got a page that says July right there and that’s actually really nice. So if you know something that’s coming up in your next school year, like 2019 2020, which wow that sounds that sounds way far ahead. But it’s really not you. Can you know, make some notes or things like that to put into your next a teacher lesson planner.
This is just a little checklist and I believe the checklist was the one that you could get modified. So you could get the standard amount of pages or you could get more pages for a fee, but I like that there is a you know, name category, oh and it says you can fold or cut along this line. Okay, so you can go. I don’t know like you, can do it like this, I’m not a teacher guys, I don’t know, and you can put like assignments up here and then you can just like keep going with.
You know what you got happened in here or a name. I don’t know. I don’t know how this works, but yeah. I got some extra pages because I started to like see how it would look and then I want to see the back, because I have heard that the stickers are really really good, y’all, okay, all right and then so. The back says, a good teacher is like a candle. It consumes itself to light the way for others.
That’s a really cute all right, and then these stickers are so good. So you’ve got some calculators stars globes checks, books, hearts. It looks like kind of sciency. Looking things exclamation points, it says IEP little asterisks and then we got some apples and then there’s some different phrases says note to self meeting. Furlough assembly, holiday, testing, reminder field trip conferences and to do which is all on the different kinds of foil.
Hopefully, that’s coming off on camera, it’s kind of a gloomy day today, so it might not be coming off on camera very well and then we have this sheet, which is so pretty. It’s got like coffee and birthday cake and like just some functional and decorative. Oh, this is so pretty and then these little apples down here say like big day break time to prep me time note to self you did it awesome and way to go.
Those are really cute. Oh my gosh, I’m like obsessed with these. These binder clips are giving me life you guys those are so freaking cute. Oh my gosh, this whole page, like I just I want this whole pages. So, yes, there is more of these functional and decorative stickers. Loving this and the foil is so good y’all, oh and then we’ve got our standard, our tried-and-true basic, functional event, stickers, which is awesome and then over here on the back side, we’ve got a pocket folder, which is great, and then it’s got.
You know this pocket back here too again. Over here is going to be. Oh, this is that um. Alright, this is another thing you could get more of. I believe I think you could add additional ones in here. This is like a slip pocket, so you could. It’s like a sheet protector, so you can put you know things in here, so you could put like this kind of stuff in here. I guess, or you could put like sheets in there.
I believe that you could order more of these to get coiled in to your planner as well kind of cool right and then the back is the same as the front, but reversed cool right. I know some of you are going to be like Emily you’re. Clearly, not a teacher and you clearly don’t have children. What are you going to do with this planner, and my answer is I’m not sure, but I thought that this would be a really cool thing to show you guys just so you can see the inside of it.
I mean I’ve been an Erin Condren fan for like several years and I had never seen like physically seen the inside of a teacher planner from Erin Condren ever so. It’s kind of cool, like I think, it’s kind of neat, and even even if okay so like this is me trying to like modify everything in life. So, even if you worked like a regular like a Monday through Friday job – and you never worked a weekend or anything like that, you could definitely use this.
You know probably the like the checklists or whatever, but you could definitely use this for like different categories of the day or I don’t know I mean you could use it for so many different things and I think that’s just kind of like what’s cool about a Lot of the products from Erin Condren is that you can kind of modify it to fit the needs of whatever you want it for, but I think it would be actually be really cool for like a work planner as well.
You know like if you wanted to modify it, but you know you can just use like a regular life planner as well. But if you really like these categories, which I kind of find really interesting, that would be really really kind of cool and even okay. So this is like back in the day when I used to do like retail management, and I didn’t have like a ton of employees, but I’m just thinking about this right now on the fly sitting here so say, like November 5th, through 9th I mean.
Obviously I worked retail but, like I didn’t, have a ton of employees I at one of the locations I worked at doing retail. I think I had like 6 employees, so this would actually be perfect. So, like you could put everybody’s like all the employees names on there and then the shift that they like. If they work on Monday, then you put their shift down and then you put like tasks for them. So you could like literally just have this open like on the desk, and then people could come in and see like.
Oh Tim needs to do blah-blah-blah-blah-blah and then, like Heather needs to do dinner to do on this date. Like that’s kind of nice, you could just like check it off when it’s done like that would actually be really kind of a cool thing. But this is just me talking about ideas, so obviously you could do whatever you want to with it. But I think this is a really really neat planner for sure, or I wanted to show you guys this planner, but I also want to show you guys the rest of the haul that I got so when I was talking to the team at Erin Condren.
I really wanted this article to be focused on this planner, as well as some of the accessories that I feel like could be used for lots of different things, and so, let’s get into some of the accessories. So with my order came these pins. Let me zoom in a little bit for the rest of this, because yeah these pens are amazing. They are the fine tip designer gel pens in the classic there’s four of them at 0.
5. Millimeter fine point pens. I have not tried them yet, but let’s try them now, I’m going to just. I just have some like white sticking on paper. I know some people actually got these, but they were supposed to be just like a free gift with purchase as of right now. But I don’t know if they’re going to put them on their website at all. Maybe they will. I don’t know so. Let’s try them all right. So there’s the green kind of skipped a little bit at the very beginning, but of course it’s never been used before.
So that could be something to do with it. This one skipped a little bit at the beginning too, but saved itself. In the end, these feel really nice. Actually, yes, these do feel quite nice, oh yeah, the black ones, my favorite for sure, but yeah. These feel really nice. Let me young tsumugi isn’t so you can see that a little bit better. So at the very beginning it was skipping a little bit, but that’s because I’m clearly never never used this before.
So that’s probably why so? The next thing I got was some Flair. They got the Erin Condren signature glasses with a mug of happiness and then also a pencil not going to take these out, because I don’t think it really. You know you don’t need to like see them in action. They’re. Just some Flair pins, which I I also ended up getting these lined sticky notes. These are the new ones for last or new ones.
For last you new ones for this year, that are the teacher collection, and let me show you guys what it looks like inside of the lesson planner. So usually you grab a month, and then you put it right here yeah, like fits perfect, it’s got this little 3m tab right here, so you could really put it on whatever you would like. The sticky is the same as last year, where it goes down about half way a little less than half way, and then you can just sticker right on to here kind of nice right and then this is the old planner.
I don’t have a new planner for this year yet, and I don’t know if and when I’ll I mean, I don’t know when I’ll be getting one, but this is the same size as the ones from last year. If you guys can see that like it goes down all the way but yeah, I think that’s really nice, I’m I like a good sticky note. You guys, I really do enjoy a good sticky. Note! Oh – and these are called the stylized sticky note pad also a free gift was.
This was free with a teacher lesson planner when I placed the order and then these are really cool too they’re. Just some gift labels and they’ve got a couple of different designs. Let’s look at them, but this was also a free gift at the time that I placed the order, and so you’ve got oh cool, there’s a couple of different varieties in here. You could use these for like nametags or you could use them for, like gift, sir, I don’t know you could kind of use them for a little bit of whatever so yeah there’s quite a few in here, Wow cool but yeah.
You could use these for like some name tags or just labeling things in the classroom or just gift tags really neat right. The next thing is something I’m super excited about, and I’m probably going to be using and my normal planning session. Is this a plus style sticker pad? It’s got 16 pages of stickers and there’s more than a thousand in here, I’m so excited for this. Oh, my goodness. I’m an excitement overload at the moment.
Oh this is so pretty good when this like feels like really nice. Oh, it’s got like a little window, so these are some gorgeous stickers. These are those like clear stickers which are in there new sticker book, there’s kind of like the regular matte stickers and then some of the like clear, transparent stickers. These are those and they just feel so nice and there’s a bunch of sayings on there a bunch of decorative elements and then we get into some regular stickers.
So some nice functional stickers with some tabs and then little Flags, more flags, and these have some nice little apples on them and then these ones have stars on them and then we’ve got a lot of like meeting things so like there’s a just a blank spot. Two blank spot, so you could, you know, put in a time or something like that, be really nice and the planner. These are pretty. Oh. I like these yep, I’m going to need these.
These are gold and then they have a little asterisks right. There love a good aligned anything. This is so nice. Oh, these are really cute. These are little binder clips and some have just like little paper clips, so nice and then we’ve got some quotes and then these here, oh look at it. This way. These are really really nice. Some nice school sayings and teacher sayings back to this way, and then this page again is one of those transparent pages.
It’s really glossy, oh, it feels so nice like Buddha and then we’re back to the regular paper that has a bunch of the days of the week on it ooh. This is the glossy paper again with all the different icons on there and then again the glossy with the alphabet, more alphabet, o n numbers, and this is the regular paper and then this is all the rose, gold and the capital letters. Oh my gosh. I’m really excited about this, you guys and next up.
I got this two-sided dashboard in the live, love, learn and yeah. Let’s, let’s check her check her out. So clearly you can put this inside of your planner, but you know you can snap it onto here. I really really wanted to do is look at this with this. Oh and it’s definitely that you could fit right here as well, so they did make them a little bit shorter, for you know the teacher lesson planner ones, so you could put them with your regular erin condren life planner.
If you wanted to very cool nice, I also got these. These are the fine tip what erase marker sets they’ve had the other ones in the past, but this is the fine tip one. So I wanted to check these guys out and see so, let’s, let’s do it together, so you’ve got black and we’ve got blue. I got green and this one’s kind of a. I don’t know kind of a pinky color cool and these do usually take a minute or two to dry, but they usually work.
Pretty well is what I’ve heard. I don’t. I don’t really use a lot of the what erase markers and my daily planning, but I like that. There’s a fine tip point though too, because you know the other ones are just a fatter tip points. You just can’t get enough. You know written down sometimes depending on how much text you want to write down on any of the dashboards. Also, you could use these inside of your cover right here as well, but yeah, it’s totally dry now.
So it’s just been a second, no crazy editing going on right. There I promise and then the last thing I got. I actually need a scissors for because it was something that was customizable. I actually didn’t customize it at all, but I know a lot of people would customize it for themselves if they were a teacher, but I just thought it was really interesting and I wanted to see it in person. So this bad boy right here is a substitute report and it’s just in the regular rainbow version.
So it says substitute report and there’s like a little dashes for the day and it says class of and that’s where you can actually customize it, to put your name or what class it is. If it’s like history or I don’t know whatever it is, and then this box has helpful people to talk to so reliable students, other teachers, the principal vice principal and then the secretary and then the time and activity absences and tardies, classroom, behavior and then some area For notes what we did today, what we didn’t get to today – star students and then difficult students, so this is really nice.
Also on the back. Are these little sticky guys? So you could definitely put this either in like the back of a notebook, or you could put this also either in the back or the front of this guy right here. I know a lot of people end up doing that. Also, let me put that right there. So it’s a little bit more centered in the frame for you, sorry, I’m like filming and it’s not that far away from the camera.
But this would be really nice too, because then it would just sit like this whoops. I can’t do it right and then it would be up a little bit on your actual planner right here, but it would just be nice to have everything all in the same spot or I know a lot of people that have gotten those planner folios really really Enjoy them, and that would actually be really really nice. To put you know something like this in there that you may not use that often all right, so those are all the things I have to show you today, that are my teacher, themed hall and first impressions.
