Lesson Diary Templates

It can sometimes be difficult to keep track of what English you’ve taught, especially if you’re teaching at multiple schools. I found that keeping a lesson diary or some sort of record really helped me remember where I was with the different grades at the various elementary schools that I visited.

This post contains templates of the lesson diary pages that I used while I was teaching as an ALT in Fukushima Prefecture. I can’t take credit for this idea; my predecessor used similar diary sheets to these, and all I did was use Microsoft Word to recreate the pages that she used.  These really helped me keep track of what I was teaching, and I thought I would upload these files to my blog so that anyone who’d also like to use them is able to do so.

How To Use:

  • Print out a master copy of the blank template and photocopy as many pages as you need. Keep the master copy to make more copies quickly later on.
  • Store the pages in a folder and fill in one page for each day that you teach. The examples will give you an idea of how I used the pages, but feel free to use them however suits you best.
  • Bonus hint: If you teach at multiple schools, get one folder for each school – trust me, it makes things a lot easier!
