I never thought I could use a digital planner, now I'll never go back!

This will be my 3rd year teaching and I wish I would have discovered this sooner. I used the free trial last school year and it was a total game changer! My lessons went smoother, I felt more organized, and I felt like a better teacher.

Common Curriculum is my go-to for lesson planning. I love the personalization of the templates and being able to add things that work for me and remove what doesn't.  I don't know how I survived before Common Curriculum!

This is so user-friendly! Now I don't have to create tables inside a Google Doc to plan my units.

Everything you need to add, change, or bump in your daily curriculum. No more tedious handwriting out plans each week


With in person meetings limited this year because of COVID, Common Curriculum has been a LIFESAVER in helping to ensure my team is all on the same page

New York

This is one of the most efficient, time saving, and user-friendly lesson planning resource that I’ve used! I wish I was able to pick my favorite feature, but there are so many…color coding, standards searching tool, myriad of templates, downloading capabilities - it rocks!!!!!


This makes my teaching life more organized and accessible. I could not imagine planning without it.

New Mexico

This is, by far, the simplest, most user friendly lesson planner I have ever used. Making changes is easy and I can copy from one lesson to another.

I've been in education for 27 years and I've been with you all since the early days, and ...I've never found a replacement for Cc. The link to Cc in my website is absolutely INVALUABLE! Cc is crucial in my planning and delivery of instruction.

Kristel Anuszewski
Cambridge, MA

I linked the day to my Google classroom so students at home in Zoom and students in class can see the standards and objectives for the day. And students who are absent can still follow the activities for the day!


Common Curriculum provides me with everything that I need in a lesson planner. It allows me to share to my Google Classroom and my admin/parents. It is appealing and allows me to customize it to what I want. I love it!


I find the planbook extremely easy to use. Being able to add standards, videos, google docs, google slides, etc. makes our days run smoothly. The organization makes daily setup and sub plans much easier. Thank you!


Common Curriculum is a game changer in lesson planning. The ability to add learning standards and share my plans with others effortlessly is a game changer!

Cc not only helps me be organized as a teacher, it helps my students to get a clear overview of the material.

Melissa Klein
Sequim, Washington

I have tried many online lesson planners and was ready to just give up on them. Then, I found Cc! You don't have to be a techie type of person to use it! I absolutely LOVE how easy it is to set up and it's a breeze moving plans when needed.


I love common curriculum! I love that I can plan anywhere - from home, in the car, in a coffee shop - and then have access to everything I need as soon as the school day starts. I also love how easy it is to share my lesson plans with the substitute or paraprofessional.

If I can teach it to myself, anyone can. It's incredibly intuitive.

Common Curriculum has made it much easier for me to plan - for regular days, sub plans, and remote instruction - and to share it with my co-teacher so she knows how she can best support our students.

Mandy Shulman
2nd Grade, Northbrook, IL

It's easy to use, very well organized, has the standard cards in each lesson, and makes lesson planning easy and efficient. I also love being able to access my lessons wherever I am at and being able to access links in my lessons.

Alesha Paszkiet
Harvey, IL

This is a very aesthetically pleasing and easy program to use. It is perfect for teachers who aspire to have an organized paper planner but can't manage to keep up with it.

Alyssa Heraty
Greenville, NC

It's the best curriculum program, hands down. I love how easy it is to set up and customize to my classes and schedules. I've used other online curriculum / lesson planners, but this is definitely the best!

Richard Rouillard

Common Curriculum is my go-to for lesson planning. I love the personalization of the templates and being able to add things that work for me and remove what doesn't. I don't know how I survived before Common Curriculum!

McKenzie Privette

This planning program is exactly what I have been looking for since I started teaching 21 years ago. Nothing else I ever tried or created has done everything I wanted it to, so I quickly abandoned them...[Cc] meets all my planning needs!

Pamela Savage

Common Curriculum is AMAZING! I love how you can customize your lesson plans and put everything in one place (Objectives, procedures, homework, standards). I can share it with administration and they can easily see my lesson plans without me sending them a separate document. Probably my favorite part though is the customer service.

Lindsay Kane
Sobieski, WI

I can share with my colleagues, make changes easily without crossing things out or erasing, and I can set up the template the way I want. If I get sick, I can quickly access my plans from home, download a pdf, and send them to my school's secretary to be printed for the sub.

Leah Picanco

My Common Curriculum Planbook keeps me sane! I love having all my plans in one place and having access to my plans across any device. The flexibility and functionality is amazing. I recommend it to all my teacher friends!

Chana Garrett

Love it! Makes planning and accessing planner in multiple places easy. I like that I can bump lessons up or pull them back.
