Monday Made It: June 22 {2015-2016 Teacher Planner}

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/The-Learning-Effect/Category/Teacher-Planners

Last week I *finally* finished up all updates on my teacher planners. After taking a mental break from the thought of school -- which only lasted about a minute, ha! -- I customized my own planner and put it together. I absolutely love every bit of it and can't wait to start planning with my team this week!


For the next school year, I changed it up and bought a whole new Arc notebook to put it all together. The Martha Stewart cover I've been using for the last two years got so dirty and gross very easily, and I was constantly cleaning it. {Here's to hoping this one won't show the dirt as easily!}

The cover is from Staples. It's called M by Staples Arc and is purple leather. I chose to go with this rather than having my files bound because I can add/remove pages at any time, and reuse this notebook base every year. {I did have to purchase the Arc punch, but it's so worth it.} I also upgraded the disc size so that I could add more to my notebook. {The link goes to pink 1" discs, but mine are 1.5" discs. They don't have the 1.5" on their website in pink.} The chevron notebook band is also from Staples and is Arc brand, but I can't find it on their website to link to it. It came in as a 2-pack.

I did print all of the pages myself. I purchased 32 lb. paper to print on. It holds better and prints better. I don't have to worry about bleed through with this paper - for printer ink or pens. I also found that when writing on 32 lb. paper with a pencil, it erases a lot better than on regular paper.




The divider tabs are also from Staples and Arc Discbound system. I will use my label maker with clear tape to label the tabs, as soon as I can decide what I want them to say. :)






I still have 2 tabs left, which I will use for resources (DIBELS info, reading levels, etc.) and class checklists (homework passes, student of the month, ClassDojo points, etc.).
