Monthly Planner

Even though I still have eight (YES, EIGHT!) days left of school, I am starting to think of next year.  There are definitely a few things that I did not get to this school year, which is such a bummer!  I whipped up a monthly planner that I can stick into my plan book (I type up all of my plans digitally, then put them into clear binder sleeves so I can either stick the planner in some extra sleeves or put it in the front binder pocket for easy reference).

Here is an example of my planner:

I included two class books each month, which is something that always seemed to get pushed to the side this year.  I also included assessment windows, holidays, themes, specific activities and to-dos.  For example, in the May Goals/Activities section I reminded myself to order butterflies around May first, instead of waiting until the last minute (which I may or may not have done this year... whoops!).  I also plan to include the little ones' birthdays in the "special dates" column so I don't forget anyone.  My August field is blank because we don't go back until after Labor Day, but I threw it in there because I know that lots of you go back in August.

I uploaded a blank copy of the planner in case you can use it too.  It is a word document, so you can just type write into it.  The font may come out funky unless you have Doodle Tipsy installed on your computer.  If not, you can download it for free {HERE} or just change it to whichever font you prefer.

You can download the planner below or by clicking {HERE}.  Hope it helps!

Loving the planner! Thanks for sharing! Are you by chance going to the I Teach K conference? Would love to meet up with you if you are.

I would LOVE to go to the conference, but I live in Boston and just bought a house... those two things combined make it pretty tricky to fly out to Vegas! Have fun though, it looks amazing!
