The ULTIMATE Lesson Plan Book

What is one thing that REALLY makes you feel organized? For me, that's my lesson plan binder. It goes EVERYWHERE with me....seriously. My husband thinks it's funny that I take it to places where I don't even need it at. I just keep SO many important things in it, that I would be devastated if anything happened.

So, I wanted to share with you my recent teacher resource pack MAKEOVER! I decided to REDO my old teacher resources pack into this NEW and IMPROVED one!

You get SO much to help you stay organized! There are 164 pages to help you personalize and make your teacher binder the way you like it! 

You can choose from a variety of cover pages, binder covers, or even make your own!

It even comes with lesson planning pages in both black and white AND color!

I would say that my favorite part would either be the lesson planning OR the calendars! I LOVE calendars, especially when we have so much going on as teachers! 

You can find this wonderful lesson plan binder and MORE by clicking here or on the picture below!

Just interested in the calendar? Well, you're in luck! I also have a brand new 2015-2016 Calendar pack! The awesome thing about this as well is that it will be updated every year so you don't have to repurchase every year!

I hope you enjoy!

Calendars and Labels: A Start to My Classroom Organization Tour!

Organization could probably be my middle name. I like to organize things that are organized. I thought it would be fun to share some of my classroom organization and teaching organization! This post is mainly about calendars and labels, but stay tuned because the rest will be coming soon! :)

Calendars...who doesn't love calendars? I use these in my personal lesson plan binder but you can also use them for student calendars as well!

Although this doesn't necessarily pertain to organization, I also have reading log calendars that I send home monthly with my students. This helps students stay organized and track their at home reading!

Of course, the only way I'm able to stay sane with all of the million supplies us teachers have is LABELS! I LOVE goes with the territory of being super organized, but when I say I love labels....I mean I'm OBSESSED. I wish I could take pictures in my classroom now to show how many more labels I've put up, but I promise I will get to that as soon as school starts back up!


In addition to supply labels, I have number and letter labels. These chevron numbers and letters are great for classroom labeling, math tub labeling, student tables, and MORE!

and now of course, there are many things that you probably just want to label yourselves, so I made a blank EDITABLE labels pack!

and of course I always have to throw in a fun FREEBIE! Here are some FREE black and white editable labels!

Thanks for checking out this post! Stay posted for the other awesome organization posts!

Sprout House and Bean Observation Journal

On Earth Day, we had a "Planting Day and Jack and the Beanstalk Day". It was a blast! Each kid brought in a plant and on this day we were gardeners and made our very own garden!

The kids had SO much fun with this that we continued to do our planting over the next couple of weeks. We made grassheads (which were SO fun!). 

We also planted a bean (just like Jack did!) in our very own "sprout houses".

It was so fun watching the beans transform! The kids used an observation journal to record the changes that they observed. 

You can grab this freebie in my TpT store if you would like to try it out for yourself! I can guarantee that your kids will have a blast! Click on the picture :)
