Got this idea from hithertokt. Made my own planner, I love it already. It’s specifically for me! Planning pages with my 4 preps, monthly calendars, and planning sheets for each prep. I have tabs to divide everything. So cheap/easy to make! I can’t believe I never thought of this before…..
A huge thanks again to the education community for constantly sharing your great ideas. :)
A snack size baggie, sticker tape from the dollar tree and a hole puncher. Perfect storage for a personal size planner! Keeping stickers and small printables that I cut out and hole punch and use for notes etc in my personal planner :) yep. I’m a diy girl :) #washitapecrafts #washiidea #washi #stickers #stickertape #planners #diy #diyplanners #filofax #franklincovey #stationary #cute #printable
Handy for pockets in a binder for keeping small parts together.
At my school, our use of MacBooks directly impacts the way I deliver instruction and guide my students’ learning. As I’m planning our math centers for the coming week after break (and starting a new quarter’s material), I’m taking the time to reflect a little on the habits I’ve developed over these past few months.
This is really helpful to see another person’s planning! :-)
Use shelf risers so you can keep two nice, neat tiers in any cubby-sized hole.
Of course, your DVDs would be alphabetical.

I thought I’d do myself a favour and do an extra maths subject over the summer semester to lessen my final year load and to bolster a crippled teaching area. Boy, do I regret it.
Every time I sit down at my coursework I end up frustrated and in tears. I don’t understand maths and the idea of teaching these concepts fills me with dread. How can I do it when I don’t know them myself? That’s why I took the maths course.
I am 6 subjects away from graduating. I can’t drop the course because then I have a “fail” on my transcript. The assessment I’m fairly confident about - some maths challenges and an exam. Nothing I can’t handle! However completing all the little quizzes that accompany my coursework is driving me insane. I get 90% but mastery is awarded at 100%. The second assignment into have mastered all the coursework. It is a massive time suck.
If there was ever a time in my life when I doubted that I could be a teacher, it’s right now. I feel dumb and stupid for thinking I was going to come out of this course with some improvement. Right now I feel like a huge failure. I am embarrassed this is so hard for me and that I’ve allowed it to affect me so.
So at 4am on Christmas morning, my hubby turned to me and we decided to stop pretending to sleep and just get up and open our gifts.
We had already bought each other fitbit activity trackers so we both we supposed to only fill each other’s stocking.
He bought me an iPad air! Had totally broke…
Two voice poetry. To be read at different points if in separate boxes, together if in the middle or the same words.
Great before break activity.My sixth graders loved writing and performing these poems.
Great idea for a poetry unit :)
Right now we are in do-or-die mode, trying to finish a project before break, so we’ve had a lot of unstructured work time lately for them to catch up on what’s left to get done. I use a lot of task lists, but prioritizing and students telling me they were “done with everything” when they had forgotten tasks was driving me mad.
I made this messy flow chart today in front of my kids when we started work time and I had kids lost and confused. My marker died and I went over it with another marker later, so excuse the mess.
Regardless, this worked so great! Every kid got their work done and was able to better prioritize their hour of free work time. I was able to meet with kids and review their writing while the others worked away- I will definitely be using flow charts (though made more carefully!) again in the future.
