Getting Ready for School
One of the ways I have started to get ready to return to school in the past few years is to alter my plan book. As a teacher, the plan book is an integral part of my teaching. I use it every day to plan for my students, to keep track of grades, attendance...all the vital records of learning.
I decided a few years ago to alter my plan book and make it my very personal one. Each year I use a different "theme". This year, I chose to go with a very natural look by using Jillibean Soup kraft papers. Since I teach Science, the owl theme seems perfect, and the tag just fit the whole plan book idea. I added a tab for each quarter of the year, and hand drew the numbers to look similar to the Jillibean design.
One thing is for certain, my plan book is not going to get misplaced among all the rest.
To all you teachers out there, have a wonderful year!
