I am an organized person and l really like to have my lessons pre-planned and located in one place. One of my favorite sites to use for free lesson plan templates is K12 reader (https://www.k12reader.com). This site has variety of lesson plan templates that range from single subject lesson plan, to daily lesson plans, and even monthly lesson plans. All lesson plans are available for free and can be downloaded as PDFs! This site also has a nice variety of free worksheets for elementary, middle, and high school students that cover a variety of subjects. Another site I like to use to download free lesson plans, free worksheets, and use free educational games in my classroom is Education.com (https://www.education.com). This site offers a number of free educational resources to use before having to pay for a membership. However, keep in mind that Education.com does limit the amount of free resources you access per month without a membership plan. The links to the free lesson plans, free worksheets and free resources from K12 reader and Education.com can be found at the end of this post.
In addition to using free lesson plan templates and worksheets, I also use budget friendly plastic protective sleeves so I can reuse lesson plan templates and worksheets. I use these plastic protective sleeves along with dry erase markers for easy writing and erasing. I three hole punch my lessons and store them in labeled binders so I can go right to them when I need them for planning or teaching. Below are the products I use from Amazon to stay within my budget and organized.
