Planbook.com Move Lessons

Planbook.com has so many great features. And moving lessons is the life hack you need to know!

You don’t have to waste time moving lessons by crossing them out, using post it notes, or drawing tons of arrows. With just a few clicks, planbook can easily move lessons. Use this feature for when you have an interruption (a snow day!), need more time (you don’t get everything done), or you need to remove a lesson (your kids this year already know that skill, so you don’t want to waste that many days teaching it).

Options to Move Lessons on Planbook

When you learn how to move lessons on planbook, you need to know these terms and what happens when you click them!

  • Lock lesson to date: This lesson won’t be moved when you make changes like bumping or extending.
  • Move lesson: Know exactly when you want to teach something? Click this button then type in the date! (There’s also the option to copy a lesson to a specific date!)
  • Bump forward: This will move the lesson forward that many classes. Use this if something happens (maybe an unexpected assembly) and you aren’t going to teach the lesson today.
  • Bump backward: Use this to move the lesson backward that many class periods. Use this if you’ve deleted a lesson, and need to move all the future lessons back that number of periods.
  • Extend Lesson: This is one of my favorites. You know how plan a lesson for one day, but realize you need more time? You can extend the lesson however many periods, so that the exact same lesson will display on future classes. This is much more efficient than copying and pasting.
  • Extend Standards: Put in your standards for the first day you are teaching that skill, then extend them for however long you plan on teaching it. No more selecting standards every time you teach a lesson!
  • Delete lesson: Just want to remove something? Delete an entire lesson with just one click (then, you might want to bump backwards).
  • No class day: Have a class cancelled because of an assembly, delay or early dismissal? Use this to remove the class and automatically bump the lessons forward! (Just for that class period – use the no school day if you want to cancel and bump the entire day).

How to Move Lessons on Planbook
