Summer Life & Editable Planners

I have been on summer vacation for 3 weeks tomorrow. My TPT project has been these babies pictured below.  They are editable classroom planners and are available in a variety of colors.  Click on the picture to see more information. 

That's not all I have been doing though.  I have been working hard at planning a wedding which I am so excited about.   I have steam cleaned the carpets, re-organized 4 closets, made countless trips to the dump and Goodwill, mapped out curriculum for next year {well -I at least started it}, scrubbed every surface of the kitchen, re-organized the garage, and have worked really really hard at training the new furry member of our family.

Needless to say I'm a little exhausted. I think it's the teacher in me that feels compelled to organize and purge everything in my sight.  It was to the point that last week my fiance (saying that never gets old) said "Hun, you don't have to spend every minute of summer cleaning."  - That really was sweet of him.  I was thinking however that he could have told me that about 5 projects ago.  Just kidding, I actually think it's a sickness that I have. 

My next project is my new filing system for all the yucky paperwork that comes with being an adult.

Oh and last but not least, I have washed EVERY item of clothing and bedding in my house.  You would think this makes me feel accomplished, but actually, I have begun to resent anyone who feels the need to wear clean clothes EVERY day.  Last week my soon to be step-daughter put on a hooded sweatshirt for about 15 minutes and then threw it in the hamper to be washed - huge mistake - I think I scared her a little when I returned it to her and very gently explained that this item was still clean.

The Organized Teacher {Editable Planners}

Is this your year to get organized? A good year starts off with a plan.  I know from experience that I am a better teacher when I'm organized.  I have spent years trying to make other planners work for what I needed.  I finally broke down this year and made my own.  Last year I had one of those really expensive fancy smancy planners.  Well...let's just say I was almost afraid to write in it!  In the end, it had WAY too many pages.  I had more than I needed.  I created these planners with all of that in mind.  This planner can be printed and ready to go or you can edit any page that you need.      

  I am creating them in a variety of colors.  The colors I have available as of today are pictured below.  If you are looking for a specific color combination, let me know in a comment.

I have one more week of school until summer vacation!  I am looping with most of my little ones next year to teach a multi-age 1st grade 2nd grade class and I'm so excited about it.  Normally, I get a little sad as the year come to a close, but not this year! I love knowing that I will be welcoming some familiar faces back in my classroom come August. I have linked up with this months currently so check it out below. 

Thanks Meghan for hosting this.  You can check out the linky by clicking on the button.
