American Sign Language Interpreters, and students of the language, often keep a vocabulary journal to document new signs learned or unusual use/interpretations. I've created an "index-style", 3 cards per page, 2 pages per sheet template in .pdf format.
Print, front and back, cut, punch and start increasing your ASL vocabulary! HS = handshape; PO = Position; LOC = Location; MM = Movement; NMS = Non Manual Signals
A year-long calendar on two pages with one blank line per week. The Thursdays calendar highlights that particular day of the week while the 2011 weekly sign-up is generic. You could simply print it and use a marker to highlight the appropriate day of the week.
I'm using it as a sign-up sheet for a weekly co-op. But it could be used to keep track of anything that happens once a week. The link below takes you to a page where you can generate this kind of calendar for any dates you choose.
A5 simple design (as a PDF) for common items like a To Do, Waiting For, MoSCoW requirements, meeting notes and notes
Designed them for me to use - so enjoy if you find them handy :-)
Laid out for double sided printing
Based on the Teacher's Lesson Planner template by Alex Prouty. Provides more space to list materials and notes to help in planning your lessons, as well as some color for sorting.
This is my first template. I attempted a 1up & a 4up, as well as an OO version.
Includes 9 different colors for the topmost header bar so you can organize by subject, child, day of the week, quarter, semester, and so on. Lesson box for the assignment and page numbers. Rounded square box can hold a sticker for completion or further organization, or write the date, week number, child's name, etc. Materials section is helpful for listing math manipulatives, library books, art supplies, science experiment materials, or other things you'll need to gather for your lesson.
You could use these as assignment cards for older children, in workboxes, planning file crate systems, etc.
This is a weekly planner that doubles as a bookmark for a journal or notebook. I carry a notebook around to keep track of ideas, thought processes, and other things I do at work. This bookmark planner allows me to keep track of my current page and provides a place to jot down To Do items or meeting reminders. The included PDF is much higher quality than the thumbnail.
It's made to be printed on a letter sized sheet and folded into three equal sections. It has space to write To Do items or whatever else for each day of the work week (Monday-Friday). It can be re-folded and used 3 or 6 times depending on whether you print it front and back. It fits nicely in a 5 1/2 x 8 notebook.
A mission statement.
Some phrases are taken out of the book "girlosophy" by Anthea Paul, I read when I was a high school-er, some ideas were taken out of "non violent communication" by Dr. Marshall B. Rosenberg. Some ideas were also taken out of "terapia del alma" by Graciela Peréz Martínez
The idea of writing out "my mission statement" was taken out of the very, well known book,
" 7 habits of success people" by Convey.
I of course tried to only write thing that I felt "personal" thing I thought I had to learn and remember
I fold a copy and it one a paste it on my planner, and I have another one stuck up on the inside of my closet.
-You need to see it every day, when you start your day, whenever you need a bit of direction, while planning, making decisions, you need some perspective on your "big picture".
It's so personal... whatever inspires you and makes you tick.

I'm a complete newbie; I'm learning how this site works and criticism is by no means a problem.
Hablo castellano/español, sí prefieren que yo haga esta plantilla, en castellano pidan y lo intento traducir. Gracias.
Month- or year-at-a-glance with days of the week following a sinusoidal curve. March-December 2010 on 12" square scrapbook-sized paper.
Created these pages to track baby milestones for a scrapbook but thought others might be interested in the "wavy weeks" (inspired by W. Bradford Paley's 2007 planner: http://wbpaley.com/brad/index.htm).
You can generate your own "wavy weeks" string using the linked Google spreadsheet (just change the dates in the first worksheet). Or make your own spreadsheet with dates in the first column and fill the second column with this formula: =CONCATENATE(REPT(" ",(3-ABS(WEEKDAY(A1)-4))*2),(DAY(A1)))
Happy Halloween everyone. Welcome to the dark time of the year, when spirits roam, and pumpkins light our way. A time where we remember our ancestors in Day of the Dead celebrations and Remembrance meals. At this special time of the year, Jordan McGilvray tells us a tale of Jack and offers us a treat. So sit back, eat a slice of pumpkin pie, and enjoy this holiday.
Jack limped along the dirt track, grumbling to himself about the cost of every needful thing. He muttered about how cold his house was, that the peat was to hard to dig, and wood was to expensive. He grumbled about the children who stared in awe and fear as they looked at him. They made his life miserable when he went to the village, teasing him, mocking him, and calling him names. Jack stopped and thought for a minute. He did not really care for one other person in the whole planet. Sometimes this worried Jack. The town priest, who read scriptures, always said that you should love your neighbors, implying that everyone was a neighbor. "Bah," thought Jack, "I know I care nothing for anyone or anything, but that does not make me bad."
If you're like me and on an extremely tight shoestring budget, buying groceries can be a challenge. I find that the best way to keep within your grocery budget is to estimate how much you're going to spend, and then keep up with how much you're actually spending while you're at the store.
This grocery list is designed with that method of shopping in mind.
This is 2-up.
I made this in Word using the tables menu. If you want to alter it a little bit, download the Word file. I used up pretty much the entire margin limits, so it may be a little wonky on the spacing and page breaks.
I've also attached a PDF version.
I hopefully left enough space for adding those little extras you will inevitably pick up.
