Quick Tips for Back to School

Back to school time is upon us once again! With that, comes the continuous spinning of our teacher-mind wheels that toss and turn new ideas, old ideas, what worked, what didn't, and new things we want to try. For me, I have a personal goal each year of being more and more prepared for my school year that inevitably is upon me each fall.  

This year, I have a unique situation, because I just had my third (and final) kiddo! She's such a doll, but amidst staring at her precious face, I have to plan for a sub while I'm on maternity leave. 
For your viewing pleasure...meet my newest little miss!

So what's my tip? 
I'm pushing forward with my goal of being more prepared...and I'm sharing something for FREE with all of you, so you can do the same! 

While nesting before babe, I came up with these editable calendars. I'm using mine to communicate with my classroom parents. They will know their child's special class schedules, important district dates and events, upcoming assignments, and much more at the beginning of each month with these calendars.

Back to School Supplies 2016 - What to buy and HOW to SAVE!

I know, I know...decisions decisions! What's a teacher to do!?

The ULTIMATE Variety Cover Teaching Binder

I'm THRILLED that I can officially offer this product to my fellow teachers! I started TpT in 2013, and had the idea for my teaching binders as soon as I began. I had always wanted to create a go-to place for my classroom forms and overall organization, and I had NO IDEA that so many other teachers were looking for the same kind of organization as me!

Since that time, I have created 9 theme-specific binders, which I have used in my classroom since they were created. They are always on the TpT best seller lists in the summer, as teachers prepare to organize their classroom lives in the fall, and are also a huge hit in December/January when my Australian friends are finding their way back into their classrooms!

With that being said, I am SO SO SOOO excited to announce the release of my latest, and greatest binder yet! I can honestly say that I have NEVER seen a more versatile binder in all of my years of teaching. Below, you will find pictures that help depict what you will be getting with your purchase.
