Oh hey kinder educator!

Let's knock planning of your to do list.

Goodbye stressful Sundays, hello monthly kindergarten plans direct to your inbox.

YOU LOVE TEACHING... AND YET...

You spend a good chunk of your weekend planning for the week ahead and feel guilty for bringing work home with you – but prep is NEVER long enough.

No matter how great and relaxing your Sunday is, you can’t help but feel dread creeping as the day gets later because you don’t feel ready for Monday.

You have big plans for your fresh new planner every year but inevitably leave it abandoned and empty collecting dust under a pile of photocopies.

TRUST ME. I WAS IN YOUR SHOES:

QUEEN OF THE SUNDAY SCARIES

Fighting burnout and losing steam FAST. I was spending way too much time scrolling socials for ideas and feeling frustrated by how long it was taking me to find the resources I needed. I KNEW I should be working less hours and could feel my personal life (or lack there of) taking the back seat again and again. I felt like I was losing myself and my passion for teaching kindergarten.

GOOD-BYE PLANNING STRESS… HELLO

KINDER PLANNED ☑️

Allow me to introduce the hottest new program on the block.

KINDER PLANNED ☑️  is bringing you monthly plans based on a strong, weekly routine that has been tested and loved by kinder classes (and educators!) for years. The goal is to save you time and stress so you can spend your off hours truly off and to help you feel ready to rock on Monday mornings.

 

Every month includes plans for weekly workshops for your whole group instruction, centres for your table tops and extra learning ideas to fill in the blanks. The daily workshops are:

Monday: Writing

Tuesday: Math

Wednesday: STEM

Thursday: Fine / Gross Motor

Friday: Art

That means you’ll get instructions and any printables (available in English or French) needed to teach the lessons for the entire month!

The last thing you need is for the thing that’s designed to save you stress to cause you stress. That’s why KINDER PLANNED ☑️  doesn’t involve fancy sites or logins or passwords. ALL the monthly plans will be emailed right to you when you sign up, and again on the 20th of the month before so all you have to do is open, print and teach!

SO, WHAT'S THE SCOOP?

Included inside of KINDER PLANNED ☑️ are beautifully assembled and organized monthly packages of plans based on an effective weekly routine that will make every digital file feel like you are opening a birthday gift. When you sign up you instantly get access to all the plans at once and you'll get them emailed to you monthly as an extra reminder and convenience.

A NEW SET OF PLANS FOR EVERY MONTH

VALUED AT 35$ EACH

Oh hey! I'm Mariah.

Kindergarten specialist turned curriculum writer passionated about pancakes, ponytails and helping educators prevent burnout by simplifying their planning! A few years ago, I was ready to quit teaching mid year because I was so overwhelmed and stressed. Then, I realized I didn’t need to waste my time reinventing the wheel and prepping for hours on end to be a “good teacher”.

Simplicity is the key.

That’s why I made you these monthly plans. I want you to have a strong foundation every single month so you can stop stressing about planning and focus on what you love to do- teach!

You became an educator for a reason. To educate. There is more than enough going on the classroom that brings you stress- planning doesn’t need to be one of them. 

Real talk, there are many things that only you can do. Joining KINDER PLANNED ☑️  frees you and your energy up to focus on them. Saying yes to this program means you are saying yes to freeing up your weekends and week nights for the things you love but are forced to brush aside while you search your computer for that file, click through pages of resources and scroll socials for way too long.

All of the activities, lessons and printables have been tested in real kindergarten classrooms by real kindergarten educators. This is a no fluff membership. You will get what you need, when you need it in the simplest way possible.

 

With your whole group activity planned for every day of the week and centres that can be used as small groups at your fingertips, the bulk of your day plans are ready for you.

Make this year different than the last few years. This is the year to prevent burnout and keep the spark alive. This is your invitation to accept the help being offered to you.

Have a question about KINDER PLANNED ☑️?

Your monthly plans will arrive to your inbox in a beautiful document. Inside will be lesson plans, ideas and all printables needed to make them happen. You will get weekly plans based on a different workshop every day. The packet is more than 60 pages and includes: 

  • A monthly calendar with your daily whole group instruction mapped out for you
  • Lesson plans and printables for your daily whole group lesson + independent work time using workshop style teaching
    • Monday: Writing
      • Two versions of writing pages weekly so you can easily scaffold depending on student level
    • Tuesday: Math
      • Topic include number sense, addition, subtraction, measurement, symmetry, shapes and solids, ten frames, number lines, graphing, sorting and patterning
    • Wednesday: STEM
      • Plans include science experiments / demos, science investigations, STEM challenges and digital escape rooms
    • Thursday: Fine / Gross Motor
      • Alternate focusing on GM with activities like yoga, scavenger hunts and active games (to be played inside or out) and using FM bins to work the small muscles. All printables included and minimal other supplies needed.
    • Friday: Art
      • Step by step instructions included for your art lessons that can be easily modified to use any supplies you have on hand
  • You will also get printables for your tabletop centres
    • 2 literacy centres (search and find tracing set and fingerprint doodles)
    • Math mats to be used with loose parts or popped into dry erase pockets
  • AND 6 extra learning ideas you can use for sensory, outdoor learning and more.

Yes! There are two versions of each monthly learning package. The instructions will always be in English, but you have your choice of French or English student pages.

Almost NONE! You will need a few minutes to make photocopies and to gather any needed supplies. All the lessons will use easy to find, or easy to subsititute classroom materials. 

Kinder Planned ✔️ is a PER TEACHER program, not a per language program. If you teach both languages yourself, you will have access to both plans!

After you sign up, you will select your language of instruction from the welcome email. Once selected all your plans will be automatically sent to you. You will also get the individual month of plans resent to you on the 20th of the month before you need them for your convenience! This gives you time to review and prep!

I am no stranger to the 50:50 model and know that working with your teaching partner is so key to preventing burnout! You can absolutely share these plans with your direct teaching team- meaning, they teach the same students as you! When you sign up, you will select the language of instruction and your printables will be delivered for that language. If your teaching partner teaches a different language, they will need their own membership.

Because ALL the plans will be sent to you automatically, requests to cancel payments and refunds will not be processed. The payment plan is simply a budget friendly option of a commitment of 8 monthly payments.

Focus on doing what you do best- teaching!

ON THE FENCE? LET'S TALK IT OUT

Not sure how to use the lessons included in Kinder Planned ✔️?

I’m here to help! Seriously, I am only an email away and happy to help you figure out the very best way to integrate my plans into yours! 

As soon as you join there is a 30-minute workshop available to you that walks you through how I recommend using them. I used these teaching strategies for years in my Ottawa FDK class, but if they aren’t working for you, I’ll help you brainstorm some other ideas. 

Joined memberships before and not gotten what you wanted out of them?

YEP. SAME. 

That’s why this is my “no fluff” program. I email you everything you need immediately and then re-send the plans monthly so you don’t forget to use them, get the most out of the program and so you don’t need to go looking for them. 

Plus, each month comes with a calendar that tells you what to use on each day. I made this is easy and accessible as possible for you.

Already have a lot of my kindergarten resources (or other resources)?

While you might get some doubling up of the printables, the lesson plans are exclusive to this program and not available anywhere else. This includes the science experiments & investigations, math lessons and art lessons ON TOP of all the amazing resources (that you don’t need to go searching your downloads for). I want to help take planning stress away from as many educators as possible so the program is priced way below it’s overall value.
