I already knew I did not want to repeat this process for my first year as I teacher. I know I will need to put the time into other areas such as curriculum, creating things for my firsties, decorating, sleeping, and making sure I have my classroom ready on time. With everything else going on the last thing I wanted to do was spend hours customizing and printing a planner. So I decided to buy an Erin Condren Teacher Lesson Planner. I LOVE IT! It was worth absolutely every penny spent. It literally has everything!
I read a lot of reviews saying that people never used many of the sections, but I do not see how this is even possible! I already carry my planner with me everywhere. Again, a planner is a life essential in my opinion.
I don't think there is a more perfect planner out there for me!
I did opt to get extra checklist pages because I plan on using this section for more than just a grade book. I will use it to keep a paper copy of my grades, but I will also use this to make sure students turn things in like permission slips and whatever else I think I need a checklist for…
Shopping for my classroom is exciting! I am doing my best to find coupons, sales, and any other way to save money. Hopefully this will all pay off!
Right now I am very thankful for Pinterest and teacher bloggers!
Just Keep On Teachin'
