I'm a Survivor...

...I'm not gonna give up. *Keep singing Beyonce*

Yes. I SURVIVED my first week. I didn't even have dreams about my classroom Friday night! I don't know if it's just me, but I tend to dream about school/work during the week. It drives me bonkers actually. So it was nice to have "work free" dreams last night!

I'm happy to say that each day this week went a little bit better. Unfortunately, Thursday night, I found myself racing to the closest teacher supply store (20 min away) before they closed, to buy this:


Yes, I know. I made my own this summer, right? I did. I made this one right here. BUT I ended up changing up some parts of our routine and I knew I wasn't going to be able to go the whole school year without my plan book matching up to those changes perfectly. Yes, I know, I'm  a little really particular. :) Maybe next year, I'll wait until after the first week of school to make my own planner!

This isn't the one I fell in love with last year, but it's almost identical and I do love it. Do your have a favorite plan book that you use, or do you type up your own? 

P.S. I also, for the first time in 40 days, had BOTH feet in sneakers yesterday! [no running yet, but I can certainly take my kindle for walks! :)]

 
That orthopedic boot was not fun this week with 3 year olds who had NEVER been in a structured environment before..

Thanks Jennifer!

Hadar--I had a stress fracture in my left ankle and was in an orthopedic boot for a month! I just got to take it off on Thursday! Woo hoo!

Glad you got your boot off. I broke my ankle a couple of years ago and had to be off work for five months. There was no way I was going to be around preschoolers!! Glad you services your first week. We have been in school for about four weeks now and the heat is keeping us inside. I'm teaching only 3 yr. olds this year not 3,4,and 5. Boy do they have a lot of energy!!!

Congrats on surviving the first week!!

I fell ya on the planner - I made so many things this summer that didn't work on quite right in action in my classroom! Ahhh flexibility!

Bummer you had to buy a new one; your summer one was so cute!

As a high school teacher, it's hard to find a good planner. So after being inspired by your planner this summer, I made my own to fit my school and my needs! I even made a copy for my student teacher so she can stay organized :)
