It’s simple, really.
The 5 Minute Lesson Plan lives up to its name.

Developed alongside Teacher Toolkit, it uses some clever, cognitive science stuff to help you streamline your thought process.

All you have to do is fill out the boxes as directed and… voila! You’ll have a lovely, focused lesson plan, ready to save and share — in just 5 minutes.

Or, as long as it takes you to finish a cup of tea.
(...And maybe a biscuit)

In fact, it’s as easy as:

Unfuddle your brain

So, here’s the secret… it’s um, science.
(And a bit of magic, but mostly science.)

The 5 Minute Lesson Plan supports cognitive thinking and structures your thought process.

Put short, it breaks down your super-complex teacher-thoughts into bitesize, digestible chunks.

Arranging your thoughts into an order that makes sense — it combines everything into a beautiful visual, so you can see your lesson as a whole.

Goodbye, lesson anxiety

Create or edit your plans from anywhere, in 5 minutes, as long as you're online.

Wave goodbye to long hours at your desk writing unnecessarily detailed plans, and say adios to those "I-stayed-up-to-plan-last-night" under-eye circles!

Instead, say hello to planning-on-the-go
Hello to "did-it-on-my-coffee-break".
Hello to more time doing what you do best: Teaching.
