V Planner, Lesson Planner, and High School V Planner includes the C Planners. C is short for CHAR and the lesson planners are named C1, C2, C3, C4. See also – CharMap
Block Planner to C Planner
The C Planners feed off of the Block planners, and that means in order to use a C Planner you must first set up its compainion Block planner. Don’t worry, the correct Block planner is linked at the top of each C Planner.
The Controls on the C Planner
There are several controls to be aware of in order to make full use of this special lesson planner.
- Row 3- Do you need to display lesson plans for 5 school days or 6 school days? A message in Row 3 lets you know which one is currently being displayed and it tells you what to do in case you want to change it.
- Cell F2 – Cell F2 controls the space between lesson plans and the comment that may be placed in column C. Cell F2 requires a number from the CharMap and preferably the number that will either create a line break or doesn’t create a line break. By default the number 10 is in cell F2 and that will create a line break in Windows Computers. If you have a MAC, try number 13.
- Column D – If you want to remind your child of something such as when a paper is due, you can enter the message into Column D and it will appear on the planner following the lesson plans. Cell F2 controls the space before the message. Column D may also be left blank.
- Column E – in the rows with lesson plans controls the space after each day’s lesson plans. It does not control the space between lesson plan columns. Place a number from the CharMap in the cells in column E.The “line break” number will mimic a list of plans while the non-“line break” number will cause the plans to fall in line. In Windows computers, the non-“line break” number is number 9. Column E may not be left blank.
- Column F – in the rows with lesson plans allows you to enter an additional “mark-off” box or space behind each group of daily lesson plans. Column F controls the space after each group of lesson plans and the cells in Column F may be left blank.

Summary as Points
- The C Planner uses your computer’s character map to display a character at the end of each daily set of plans..
- Characters 10 and 13 most often display a line break.
- The C Planner might not work because it relies on your computer’s character map and if your computer does not support a common character map, then this planner might not display correctly.
- The C Planner is controlled by the Block Planner.
- A 6th day may be displayed by a setting in the Block Planner
- Comments may be added to the end of each group of lessons in column D.
- Column F, a yellow column, allows you to add a line or space behind each group of daily lesson plans.
- The Character numbers are changed in column E and in cell F2.
- I have provided a worksheet named Char-map to help you in selecting a character number. If characters are not supported by your computer, the char-map would probably reveal this to you.
