Say Goodbye To Lesson Plan Anxiety!

Reading Time: 2 minutes

How can we support new teachers to reduce workload, and improve lesson planning?

The 5 Minute Lesson Plan has become more ‘easy peasy, lesson squeezy’. Designed by me and developed by Angel Solutions, teachers in over 140 countries have downloaded the paper plan. Teachers love the plan so much, I’ve spent the last 18 months developing the concept and we have taken it a step further. Now, you can save time, feel prepared and plan-on-the-go… all from your pocket.

A thought process …

Let me help you unfuddle your brain.

The 5 Minute Lesson Plan supports cognitive thinking and structures your thought process. Put short, it breaks down your super-complex teacher-thoughts into bitesize, digestible chunks. Arranging your thoughts into an order that makes sense — it combines everything into a beautiful visual, so you can see your lesson as a whole.

Want to know all the incredible new features?

Well, here they are:

  • Plan on any device – yes, even your mobile
  • Saves your work as you go, so there’s no more lost work
  • Have one central place for all your plans
  • Unlimited, yes an unlimited amount of plans
  • Search for your plans, even that one from 2 years ago that went down a treat with the kids
  • And now it’s customisable, hurrah!

So, here it is, the digital 5 Minute Lesson Plan. All snazzy & digital.

How to use it?

You can create or edit your plans from anywhere, in 5 minutes, as long as there’s WiFi (or any internet access actually).

Wave goodbye to long hours at your desk writing unnecessarily detailed plans. Instead, say ‘Hello’ to planning-on-the-go and ‘hello to ‘I did-it-on-my-coffee-break.’ Hello to more time doing what you do best: Teaching.

As a teacher, I suspect you’ve got very little time available? I know this feeling too well. I’ve been planning lessons for 25 years and I’ve been trying to optimise how I work since my first year in teaching.

Why not give it a try and say goodbye to lesson plan anxiety!

So, I know you want to know how much does it cost? Well, for the first two weeks — nothing. Nadda. Zilch. Zero. You can try it out for 2 whole weeks to see if you like it. After your 14-day trial is over, you’ll be asked to subscribe – and the good news, a subscription only costs the same as one cup of coffee per month.
