After School Checklist

I want to start sharing some things I've been coming up with to help keep myself organized throughout the school year.  While student teaching, I always found myself exhausted by the end of the day.  All I could think about was getting home and into some comfy sweatpants for the night.  However, there was always so much to do at the end of the school day.  Between checking emails, cleaning up, preparing for the rest of the week and so on I almost always forgot to do something before I left school which led to a lot of anxiety and panic. I decided an after school checklist was a perfect way to remind me of everything that needed to be done!
I've put together this checklist hoping it will help keep me focused on the tasks I need to do at the end of the day before leaving.  You can download it here. I made it a word document so it can be edited to fit your needs.

Let me know if you have any other suggestions of things to add to this list.  I'm sure I'm missing something!

Beginning of the Year Shopping List for New Teachers

Now that September 4th (the first day of school) is less than 3 weeks away and new teacher orientation is in less than a week, I wanted to start coming up with a list of all the things I will need to buy for my classroom! Phew... the first list I created was looong... yes looong with three o's.  I thought about anything and everything a teacher could possibly want in the classroom for organization and for their own sanity! After dwindling down my list to more essential items for organization and cleanliness, I think I've finally come up with a great beginning of the year shopping list for first year teachers, especially those teaching from a cart like myself.  Seriously, where do you even put everything???  This list could also be used as a back to school shopping list for veteran teachers as well but they may already have a few of the items from previous years. There is also room at the end to add your own items.

You can grab a copy of this shopping list here. 

If you have any suggestions of things to add to my shopping list please feel free to share below in the comments! I'm sure I'm missing things!

So if you haven't noticed...

I've been a little absent from this blog lately. Well I do plan on picking up blogging again very soon.  This summer has been so so so much fun, I'll definitely have a recap of my summer coming soon.  Hopefully I'll be back to blogging somewhat regularly soon!
