There’s nothing quite like the satisfaction of a well-planned lesson that gets your students excited about learning and motivates them to participate, and, of course, achieves the learning outcomes you’ve set out for the class. As every teacher out there knows, planning is key. Benjamin Franklin said it best: “If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail”.

Did you know that with Genially you can create tons of resources that will help you plan your classes? Whether you’re teaching face-to-face classes, online, or with a hybrid model, this selection of templates will help you prepare your classes in less time than you think. Sound good? Well, here they are!

Templates for planning your classes

Annual calendar

No date or event will escape you with this yearly school calendar. What’s happening next month? And in 3 months’ time? You can see it all at a glance, add more details, and go directly to the event you’re most interested in and expand the information. Share it with your students and their families so that they can look it up whenever they need to; all you have to do is give them the link. It couldn’t be simpler. Pro tip: if there’s a date that’s super important, make it stand out by changing the color of the box to one that’s more eye-catching.


Weekly schedule

Science class Monday and Wednesday, social studies Tuesday and Thursday, tutorials Wednesday afternoons… Why try to keep it all in your head when you can have it all laid out nicely for you in this weekly schedule that you can access any time? It’ll be much easier to organize and remember your schedule and that of your students. And thanks to interactivity, you can add extra information to each time slot.


Subject guide

Want your students to really get involved in your subject as much as possible? A good place to start would be with a guide like this one. Knowing what they’ll need to learn, how they’re going to do it, and how you’re going to evaluate them will help them to prepare and to seek out the best strategies for their own learning. Equip them with motivation and autonomy.

Templates for celebrating achievements

Certificate of achievement

Every effort deserves recognition. Reward the hard work and efforts of your students with an interactive certificate or diploma. Want them to feel even more special? Personalize it with a photo and include something you know they like. For example, if they’re big fans of Pokemon, add a gif or change the background to one from their favorite series. They’ll love it!


School news

I’m sure lots of good things happen in your classes, like successfully completing school projects, maybe some important events, or student achievements, etc. Why not share this news with everyone with an interactive newspaper? Your students will feel proud of their achievements and their families can participate in their progress.


Templates for evaluating your students

And templates for teaching, gamifying, and practicing
