Hey there sweet people! It's been a long time since I wrote on this little blog. The end of the year was lose your mind, I need a drink, and a looooooooong week away from everything kind of crazy. I so enjoyed spending my last few days with my sweet class and I was soaking it all in before that final day. It never seems to hit me that the last day is upon me until one of my sweeties gets checked out early.... *pause*.... and I find myself holding onto my cuties just crying my heart out.
Now. It's over, and I find myself trying to stay busy with kids, organizing, and thinking of 2015-2016 school year. I mean.... kindergarten registration is next week!!!!!! Oh. My. Stars. Crazy.
Well, to get myself prepped, I went on ahead and re-beautified my teacher planner. I am definitely one of those ladies that has to have it be pretty or else I find myself not using it as much. I am sticking with my arc system disc-bound planner. I really liked how I could easily add and take things out and the easy to which I could fold the cover back like a spiral notebook was FAN-TAB-U-LOUS.
Last year I made a monthly and weekly calendar system, but I found out that I truly love typing my plans on the computer and then printing them out. So I decided to only have a monthly calendar in this planner. I want to be able to record any meeting dates, theme dates, special events, or student information in the monthly section.
I really enjoyed having a section for parent contacts, birthday information, professional development information and my post to add some other info like my small groups, meeting notes etc. I made it more practical by creating some tabs using this handy tab cut out that I found at JoAnn's.
Now I know many teacher planners out there have sections for reading notes, small group plans, sub plans and all types of other goodies, but it just did not work for me. I wanted something to keep everything separate. So I created my binder system.
For the remainder of the summer I will highlight a new binder system each week. I hope to share some freebies and look into each binder with a video.
Wether you are ready or not the new school year is coming up fast and I plan on being as prepared as possible.... with some family fun and good times along the way!
