My Monday Made it is showing off my new planner!
It works for Monday Made it and A new link party starting today over at The Teacher's Chair.
Each day of this blog you will share something different. Today is lesson planners! Perfect timing for me!
I know there are so many out there for sale, but I am a glutton for punishment and had to make my own. My school requires certain documents be kept for each class period/student. They give us a binder, but it is HUGE and I hate lugging it around
I also know there s a debate going on about whether a planner is even necessary. For some it is, for some its not. I use my calendar on my phone, but I am still old school and have to write everything down. I am hoping to have everything in one place.
It turned out so pretty. I am super pleased with it!
I chose to use a binder because I will need to add pages throughout the year.
I did include a Gradebook divider. I do grades online, but sometimes need a checklist. I will print these from my online gradebook and include them behind that tab. They will have the students' names already.
I did not include lesson plans because we are required to do them online. I already double up on so much, lesson plans, no way!
I made dividers as well. I thought about having them made, but it was a little more expensive and I had my two youngest with me at the time. They were driving me nuts. So, I did the easiest thing for me.
I am pleased with how it turned out and think I am officially ready to write in it. As you can see I haven't even labeled the divider yet.
I should probably stop this post here, but since I have missed several Monday Made Its, I have more that I made this week!
I printed and made some class math posters, a vertical number line from Susan over at Middle School OCD and a horizontal number line from here.
This is why I love blogging so much. I would never have known about these two resources if I hadn't seen it on Math = Love blog's. Love the community.
I have random posters around my room with positive messages on them I printed last year. I plan to do the same with these Math posters. I hate plain walls and once we are in full swing I have a bunch of anchor charts, but these posters just make the room more inviting in my opinion.
HAPPY CRAFTING!!! Its crunch time for me, I am off to make more.
