    I am looking for a datebook calendar with the following:
    Plenty of space for each day to write down happenings (Not just a small square)...I want it fit in a binder (so maybe something with holes or something printable). I will already have a lesson plan template, online grade book...etc. Does anyone have something or know of something like this.

    I know it's not what you're looking for, but I use Google Calendar. I like it because it will send me reminders. I have a work version & a personal version.

    Maybe that is the route I should go.

    I love the fact that my Outlook features (email, contacts, and calendar) are synced to my iPhone!

    If you still want a paper version, design one in Excel. Shrink the cells/boxes and margins to super narrow and you can make it look just the way you want.

    Everyone at my school made jokes about how admin was pushing google + drive, forms, classroom, etc. hard this year, but I will second Google Calender. It is the only way I have been able to keep up with a calender. With a desk calender and planner, I was always forgetting to write something down, because I didn't have it with me, or it was across the room. Since I can access Google Calender on my phone, tablet, desktop, and laptop...the minute I get an email with upcoming dates, or a parent asking for a conference, I pull out my phone and start adding events with reminders. When I wake up in the morning, I will have those reminder notifications at the top of my phone, so I know what I am doing that day.

    I created one for school, and personal use/bills.

    If you are still looking, I know my Target store has some planners that sound like what you are looking for in the clearance area of office supplies for about $5. They are basically sets of 3-hole-punched pages set up like a planner, rather than being bound with a spiral and they look nice. :)

    I make my own on Word. That way I can make it exactly the way I want it.

    I LOVE dayminder planners. I got mine at Office Depot but staple has another kind named "at a glance". They have different versions but the kind I like best has the times for each day in 15 min increments. Each day is a column. Three columns to a page (Saturday and Sunday share). I have plenty of space to write EVERYTHING (color coded of course) including but be limited to lesson topics, grad school homework, part time job schedule, and work out schedule.

    I use Google calendar for all my scheduling needs. It provides reminders to my email and phone and even on my computer. It's very versatile and I use it for everything from daily tasks to unit and lesson planning.
