I’ve been following Chandra Jayne on Instagram for a while, so I was quite familiar with her teaching products.  When I knew she was coming out with her newest item, Teacher Anchor, I decided to hold off on purchasing my new planner from another company.  I wanted to see what Chandra would have to offer for teachers. 

What is Teacher Anchor?

If you’re like me, you rely on your paper planner.  My husband thinks it is funny that I am a technology blogger yet still have to maintain a physical planner that I carry around.  There is something about seeing actual ink cross off an item once it is done.  I’m a big “to-do-list” maker. 
Teacher Anchor is an actual planner.  It comes in a spiral binding that has three holes along the side so that it can also fit into a binder.  Inside the planner, you will find: lesson planning pages (for the teacher in you), monthly planning pages (for your personal life – or professional), substitute teaching pages for reference, year at a glance pages, common core standard pages for K-3, and more!
Enjoy the video below that walks you through the entire Teacher Anchor so you can see exactly what the product includes.  I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments!!

How Does The Anchor Compare?

So…. after posting a few photos about receiving the fabulous goodies from C.Jayne Teach, Chandra’s Store, I immediately had friends emailing asking the question, “Which do you like better?  Erin Condren or Teacher Anchor?”

I contemplated including this segment on this post, but I knew that I would get tons of similar questions, so it would be best to openly address it in as honest of a way as I could see fit.

Personally, I’ve been using the Erin Condren Teacher Planner for the past year.  I do love it and highly recommend it.  Starting this June, I’ll transfer my organizing needs to the Teacher Anchor by C.Jayne Teach.  I am very excited to try this out.  Honestly, minus the color of the interior pages that the Erin Condren planner offers, they truly are quite similar.

One item I really wish the Teacher Anchor had was tabbed sections.  I do plan to buy tabs and section my planner for easy access to each section.  I also wish there was a way to purchase an upgrade for personalization to the cover.  I adore the design.  I wish I could add my name to the existing design.

A huge bonus the Teacher Anchor offers is the entire data piece.  This is not included with the Erin Condren Teacher Planner.  Chandra Jayne was a classroom teacher.  So, of course, it made sense for her to include such a detailed and teacher-friendly section to have for assessments.

If I Had to Choose – Which Planner Would I Pick?

Well, I was able to choose.  I chose the Teacher Anchor.

I selected to give this product a try because I was sold on the fact that it included an additional teaching tool: the data/assessment section.  Because I constantly hold conferences with my students during reading and writing workshop, I was curious about the templates Chandra would include for her product.  When you open the large binder, you will find a ton of card-stock templates.  These are your master copies.  I’m looking forward to planning over the summer and setting up my binder.  There are a few templates I’m over the moon about.  I especially love the conferencing forms for small groups.  They’re organized with exactly the necessary information!

If you view the video above, you will see more examples showing off specific templates.

Grade-Level Team Planning with the Teacher Anchor

As soon as the Teacher Anchor became available, I couldn’t wait for my package to arrive.  I was so excited about this new and fabulous tool that I ordered one for each member of our second grade team.  I thought it would be fabulous to talk about student growth during team planning meetings if we all had similar assessment templates and tools.  
I really appreciate anything that can bring more organization to a team.  The Teacher Anchor does just this.  What a fantastic end of the year teacher gift for your colleague!
After showing off my Teacher Anchor to a few colleagues, they’ve already placed orders, too.  Once you see it, you just have to have one.  
More Fabulous Items from C.Jayne Teach
The super sweet Chandra surprised me by including a few extra goodies in my package.  It was like a holiday unboxing all of the wonderful resources.  I felt so lucky and excited!
I love my mini-notepad!  You’ll have to click here and check out her full store.  You will love it!  I always order a personalized gift for my children’s teachers at the end of the year.  Chandra has several items you can personalize and gift to celebrate the year.

You’ll want to check out her full site and see the fabulous ideas and products she shares.  Her blog is so nicely done.  I love how everything she does is beautifully developed.  Click here to see for yourself – her adorable site!
