Student binder printables can help students keep all of their important school and class information organized, setting them up for success from the moment they head back to school!
The student binder printables are baaaaaaccccckkkk! 🙂 Over the past few months, one of the most common questions I have received is, “When are you going to update the student binder?!” Well, I’m thrilled to say that it is here! Since last year’s binder was such a hit, I didn’t change much on the original version, but I did make a few little additions that I think will be helpful AND I’m offering a second color scheme that is perfect for boys (or for girls who prefer blue to pink)!
I’ve had a lot of requests for printables for students over the years, so a few years ago I finally took the time to create a whole binder full, and now you can have some bonus printables to add to this year’s binder! (And if you’re not a student, there are still some of these that you could use too, so don’t run off just yet! 😉 )

Before we jump into the binder tour, here are a few of the items you’ll need to put together your student binder:

The first thing that any binder needs to have is a pretty cover, and this binder is no exception! I made it bright and colorful with plenty of room for the owner’s name and/or contact information. I printed my cover out on white card stock just to make it a little sturdier.
Next, I was sure to include a class schedule. You can keep track of what class is happening when, where, and with whom with this simple printable!
I then divided the binder into a few sections to keep everything neat and organized. The first section is planning, of course!
You know I never create a binder without including a goals page! I am kind of obsessive about goals because I really think that they work! Whether you’re a student or not, it never hurts to write out a few of the things you’d like to accomplish over the next year. I’ve also left room to write out some action steps you can take to get yourself closer to your goals.
Everyone– students and otherwise– can always use a monthly calendar. This one includes July 2017-December 2018 for over a full year of pretty planning! And if you’re thinking even further ahead than that, I’ve included undated calendar pages so that you can create a calendar for any year you want!
Another printable that everyone could use is this two-page weekly planner. Each day is broken down by hour to make it easy to use time blocking or just keep a close eye on your schedule. There is even room at the bottom to set some goals for the week and make notes.
If you want to go even more in-depth, you can use the daily planning printable, which has even more room to schedule your time, make note of people you need to contact, and keep track of miscellaneous items in the notes section.
The final printable in the “planning” section is a daily routines printable. Sometimes it’s helpful to clarify which items need to happen each morning (like packing a lunch or filling your backpack), afternoon (like finishing homework or doing chores), and evening (like picking out clothes for the next day or planning the next day’s schedule). This little printable can help you do all of those things!
Now, everyone probably won’t need all of these different printables for planning their time, but I wanted to make sure I provided a bunch of different options so each person could choose the printable or printables that would work best for them!
There are sooooooo many details to keep track of when you’re in school, and the next section of the binder is devoted to just that.
I know I was always overwhelmed on the first day of class when I would get my syllabus from each teacher and immediately be bombarded by assignments and test dates. The next two printables– an assignment schedule and an exam schedule– will help organize those things so you never miss a deadline.
If there is one thing I’m thanking myself for as an adult, it is that I was an avid reader from an early age. I know I’m a former English teacher, so this is expected from me, but reading is so, so, so important! This reading log makes it easy to keep track of your minutes/pages read.
I divided up the next section of the binder into the different subject areas and included the same few printables in each subject tab.
First, I included a grade tracker. It’s never fun to get to the end of the quarter or semester and be surprised by your grade, so this printable will help you keep track of all grades along the way so you know exactly what to expect. There is a column to list each grade, and then one to keep a running total on the far right. Print one off for each class and get tracking!
Next I added a simple-but-pretty notes page so you can keep all of your class notes nice and organized. I would print out a bunch of these at a time to have them handy any time I need to take notes in class, make a list, or just get some thoughts down on paper!
My very last printable in each subject section is a project planner. All of those school projects have so many little details, and this printable is the perfect place to keep track of them all! (Plus it’s cute, which always helps! 😉 )
A Second Color Scheme for the Student Binder
Last year I had several requests from moms of boys for binder printables that weren’t quite so pink! As a fellow boy mom myself, I completely understood the need for more options for boys, so this year I created a second color scheme option that would work for boys or for girls who just prefer blue to pink!

The student binder printables are simple, but when used consistently, they can truly help make your school year (and your life!) so much easier!
Happy organizing, friends!

- "I love these planners because they allow allow classes in one ..." - By postieI can't find these anywhere locally. I love these planners because they allow allow classes in one place. We tried the two binders one for A day and one for B day and it didn't work! Inevitably things get left at school. Best system: 1 binder, separaters for each subject in one bonder. The separaters must have pockets to put lose papers from each class immediately into the binder. This planner at the front of the binder to keep track of all classes. Bring this back and forth every day. Then everything is in one place and it's not too combersom.
- "Just Like My Highschool Agenda Books" - By HenI went into college not too long ago, and figured that I needed some sort of planner to organize all my assignments. Back in highschool, it was mandatory to have a planner, and my school had its own agenda book for every student for free. Now that I'm in college, there's no free agenda books, and no one is holding my hand anymore, so I'm on my own.
I searched far and wide for a satisfying planner, but most of them were in irritating fonts and girlish formats. I wanted something that imitated my highschool planner because it was perfect, and I completely took it for granted.
This is literally the only student planner that was able to satisfy my needs. The cover may not be so attractive, but it also leaves room for customizing. It's also pretty modest and professional, which I like a lot.

- "Ordered replacement hoping I just got the one bad calendar, will update when I receive replacement" - By L.K.M.Use caution unless you don't need every day of month, some day's listed twice others none existent, February now has 31 day's! Ordered replacement hoping I just got the one bad calendar, will update when I receive replacement. Received replacement calendar, all months have correct number of days! Plainer is very nice, except for returning first one I'm satisfied.
- "I absolutely love this planner!!!" - By Reviews4UI absolutely love this planner!!! I got the 5x8, but they have a bigger size as well. This size works perfect for me, it can fit in my purse and it is still big enough to writ everything that I need to in it. There are tabs for each month to make it easier to find what you are looking for. There are monthly views and weekly views. On the weekly views, I do wish the weekend section was as big as the weekday section, but most planners that I look at are set up this way. This is an add on item, so you will need to get $25 worth of qualifying items to be able to order it. The front part of the planner opens so that you can put a picture in there, I really like this feature. ... full review
- I purchased this planner for my 10-yr old daughter. She just started to use it to track her homework. She attends a small Christian academy that uses an accelerate curriculum that is more student-driven than most. It stresses that her success is based on her motivation, attitude and hard work. Part of all of that includes organization. She is happy with the planner, but most of all was motivated to read the beginning sections of it! The layout is great, allows her to track her homework and progress!
