You can do that now. Go to “Planbooks” in your blue navigation bar, and then click “Edit” by the planbook you are working on.
Under Advanced Options, you will see a section to change the Day Title. There are several options to include the date.
You can do that using The Cubby. You’ll have to drag in each day individually. We have more on that here:
When the grade book is open I would like to the its name at the top of the page somewhere. I teach Spanish and have multiple grade books and sometimes I write my plans in the wrong book. I don't think I would do that if I saw the title of my grade book at the top.1 vote
When planning in the weekly view, you can have the name of your planbook displayed, instead of “Week of…”
Click on “Planbooks” in the blue navigation bar, and then “Edit” by the name of your planbook. Under "Advanced Options, you will see a section called “Title”. Set this to “Name Only”, and the name of your planbook will appear on your weekly view.
If you want the date as well you can include it with the day title. Look for that option in the same Advanced Options area.

Add elementary options for reading groups, learning stations, math groups, and space to write nes and or activities
There are so many activities,testings, grouping, pull outs, pull ins and more going on hourly and daily in an elementary classroom that changes depending on the day or week at hand. Especially for the intercity classroom where students are academically behind by grade(s).0 votes
We intentionally leave the planning area free form, since it would be impossible to accommodate all the needs of teachers. You can create a reusable template to fit your schedule. We have more on that here: http://help.planbookedu.com/knowledgebase/articles/70803-how-to-create-templates
