That means access to tens of thousands of pages and slides for nearly any ELA topic you can think of, and the library is always growing with new content!
Presto Planners is by far the best investment I've ever made as a teacher. The site is constantly updated with new materials, the creator is responsive to feedback, and it feels like a community. If you're looking for a particular resource for your class, there's a high possibility that it's on Presto Planners. The price of admission to this wonderful community is well worth it, and I guarantee you won't be disappointed!
It is wonderful to have so many quality resources available which support the standards I am working on with my students. The activities are visually pleasing and engaging. I find myself returning to the library again and again, and I usually find exactly what I need. Thanks for offering these terrific and time-saving resources.
My favourite thing about my Presto Planners membership is that the library is so extensive. If I’m looking for a lesson or idea, I can usually find a resource that meets my needs in the Presto Planners library. It has saved me hours of online searching!
The resources, training, and community of the membership will allow you to take your teaching to the next level. Elevate your classroom by using classroom-tested resources that will not only meet your standards but also improve student engagement.

Are you feeling anxious and stressed when you think about your life in the classroom? The membership will allow you to reignite your love of teaching and feel organized, stress-free, and fully supported.
I have been a middle school teacher for over 25 years and created almost all of my lessons up until about three years ago. When I found Presto Planners, I almost cried - from happiness! Bonnie has put together so many COMPLETE, AMAZING units for teaching writing, grammar, and literature. The first time I chose to use one of her units, I completely relaxed because I knew it was going to be a success in the classroom, and it was! Don’t wait! Become a Presto Planner member TODAY! It will be the best money you ever spend on teaching resources!
For my upcoming 17th year of teaching, I can honestly say this is the greatest investment I have ever made for my career. If you teach Junior High Language Arts, I HIGHLY encourage you to check it out.
Being a founding member of the Presto Planners Membership was one of the best investments of my teaching and professional development that I have made. The resources are top-notch, engaging, and creative. The resource library is incredibly dynamic. Bonnie creates new resources each month and responds to the specific needs of her membership educators. She offers video support and seeks feedback. There are so many outstanding resources and so little time to use them all!

Last year was my first year teaching 8th grade Academically Gifted ELA students and without Presto Planners I would have been lost. Having the membership allowed me to access high-quality educational resources. I used my membership every week and saved myself a lot of stress in the process. I would recommend Presto Planners for any teacher of English-Language Arts!
I have used Presto Plans resources for several years so it was just good sense to subscribe and have access to all the materials. It has been so invaluable during this virtual season we’re in. The bell ringers and writing lessons have given me great data, and the holiday lessons have provided us with tons of fun and laughs while maintaining instructional integrity. I told my colleague in English that it’s well worth the price and he should invest in his piece of mind.
I can't say enough about Presto Planners English Teacher Membership! There is a resource for everything that you can imagine. Last year, I joined one of Bonnie's online training sessions. I saw all that she offered, and I was really impressed with the quality of her work. Once I was a member, I realized that I had purchased a few of her resources individually in the past, resources that my students really enjoyed.
"Presto Planners has been a lifesaver for me."
"There's a resource for everything you can imagine."
"Love it! Recommend it highly! Two thumbs up!" 👍🏻 👍🏻
"I have used Presto Planners for about a year, and simply stated, I love Bonnie's resources and ideas. She has created a copious amount of resources that are both teacher and student friendly. I teach seventh graders ELA, and with 23 years of teaching under my belt, students have not liked poetry for a variety of reasons. Last year, my students were more receptive and engaged during our unit, and I believe this was primarily due to the creative activities and resources created by Presto Planners.
Yesterday I was feeling overwhelmed about going back to school in a few weeks. The week I return for teacher meetings and prep, I also have to move two kids to college and was just called for jury duty! So this morning, I poured a cup of coffee and finally started previewing the resources. Now I am feeling both calm and energized by these fabulous plans. I found great ideas for my bulletin boards, bell ringers (which I want to institute this year) and unit plans for Holes and The Outsiders (two of my Sept novel studies). I got this!
I stumbled upon your resources on Instagram. I am thrilled that I purchased the membership! I have been struggling to find some fun activities for the first week of school, within minutes I have my week planned, just need to make copies. THANK YOU!

I'm sure you’re use to hearing this by now but I really want you to know how much this membership has saved me! I teach nine different preps spread out over three grade levels. I have been able to use the content from your membership in all of my courses believe it or not! You have saved me so much time and stress! Knowing that there’s a fun activity for holidays and events or easy print offs for substitutes or even links for students who are online has given me a sense of calm that effects my teaching and my family! I am grateful that this platform exists and that my principal supported the idea and paid for the membership for me. I will be asking for the same support next year because it is worth any other other workbook, supply list, etc.
Bonnie has made my life more organized and exciting with the membership. Her units are so well thought out, sequenced, educationally sound and exciting. I cannot wait for school to start up again to start using them. I will be able to be a better teacher, long range plans done! Thank you very much. Worth every penny a hundred times over. I feel invigorated instead of overwhelmed because of Presto Planners, and I know kids will love the tasks too. Highly recommend!
The Presto Planners Membership has been the single thing keeping me afloat during this past year. At a very reasonable price, it provides hundreds- if not thousands (haven't counted!) of ready-made lessons that the students enjoy and learn while they do so! I cannot emphasize just HOW MUCH EASIER planning time was because of Presto Planners. The membership saved me HUNDREDS of hours of planning and creating work. Student engagement was high, admin observations were great, and it was super easy to find what I needed through the Presto Library! This membership more than pays for itself - it's easily worth three times as much as it goes for. Whether you prefer the monthly or the yearly options, either one is the best investment you will ever make. I'm renewing my membership because I can't imagine not having access to this amazing library of lessons. I recommend this membership to any and every secondary English teacher who'd love to save a lot of planning time, have access to new items on an almost weekly basis and likes having their students enjoy working on their assignments.

I know I am paying for a service; however, I feel I am getting so much for the small amount I have spent. I have saved so much time and stress with having assignments already completed that appeal to students and are rigorous in nature. Thank you for your organization and thoroughness!
I stayed up until 3 in the morning the first day just exploring, planning, and getting excited! I feel such a weight off my shoulders knowing that at any time I will be able to easily find resources and prepare for literally anything. I’m very happy to have joined.
I had already bought some of these resources, but to have an entire library and a team of support is too good to pass up! Some the of resources and materials have been instrumental in my classroom. The resources are student relevant and will be such a time saver! I already see so much that I will be using!

The Presto Planners Membership has been wonderful. So many resources that are very detailed and comprehensive. I loved the lessons and my students loved them too. I teach a freshmen OCS English I class and the short stories, poetry unit, and other resources have made my year so much better and easier because everything was there in one place. I would highly recommend the membership to any English teacher.
I cannot express in words my gratitude for your work and resources that made my teaching life easier and helped my students to practice key English skills. I have used a variety of resources (both printable and digital) to great success. My students especially enjoyed the escape rooms, and I was very thankful for the Hatchet novel study bundle that prepared my students for the Escape Room, which I used as a formative assessment. Your displays were also used in my classroom, and students particularly liked the funny posters about the English Language.
I first joined Presto Planners after having purchased a few of Bonnie’s resources on TPT. I found her resources were exactly what I was looking for. I won’t lie, when I first considered joining, I thought it was a bit expensive but decided to give it a try and see. I found the resources to be user friendly. Even in a multi-level/grade class such as mine, there was very little I needed to change. It has saved me so much time and the lessons are engaging. My students have loved all of the activities we used. We start each day with one of her bell ringers and it really helps the students come in, get settled and become ready to learn. We also use the Classroom Challenge once a week as the students loved picking the “envelope” to open it. The activities have saved me so much time and stress and the students really respond to them. During the school lock down for Covid, I still had the majority of my students completing work regularly.

Schools and districts all over the US and Canada purchase Presto Planners Memberships to support their teachers! Use the form below to request a quote for membership. Multiple-teacher and district-wide discounts are available.
We recommend the membership for middle and early high school English language arts teachers, ideally for those who are teaching ELA to grades 6-10.
Absolutely! When you join, you will get instant access to all past, current, and future resources made by Presto Plans. While many other memberships release a new monthly bundle, Presto Planners do not have to wait. They can immediately jump in and start using the thousands of pages and slides of English teacher resources! The best part is that your library will continue growing with new resources, programs, or units that we create, and members always get first and early access. As long as you are a member, you'll have access to everything new I create. We also regularly update and improve materials, so as a member you'll always have access to the most current and up-to-date resources.
The membership resources are primarily in PDF and PowerPoint format, but we also have an extensive digital section in our library with lots of Google-compatible digital resources. When new resources are added, they will always be uploaded in both print format and digital format (when it makes sense to do so). I am dedicated to supporting members with digital resources in the case that they are teaching in a 1:1 school or are required to provide materials for at-home learning.
Our resources have been designed to primarily meet the Common Core State Standards, but the materials in the library address so many ELA concepts and skills that we are confident that no matter what ELA curriculum you are using, there will be a great deal of resources to meet your standards. ELA teachers who purchase items from Presto Plans come from all over the world, so you can be confident that there are many resources included that will align with your ELA curriculum standards. An integral part of our resource creation process is ensuring that our materials are rigorous, engaging, and standards-aligned.
As a member, you are provided a license to use all of Presto Plans’ resources in your classroom. This means that when you cancel, you legally lose access to all of the resources in the membership as well as any licensing rights to items you had downloaded previously. This means former members are not legally permitted to use those resources their your classroom unless they reactivate their membership.
For both the monthly and the annual membership, members can cancel before their renewal date, but I am confident that when you see the resources included, the community of teachers you will be a part of, and the new items added regularly, you will not even consider cancelling. 😊
