Everyone starts thinking about the next school year before summer starts, right? I do. May brings not only graduation and finals, but also prepping summer work, science fair kickoff for next year, and launching next year’s student leaders with a last days of school retreat.
One critically important thing to me is a planner. Maybe one day I’ll go really minimal and pick up a super cheap one, but I really love a fun colorful planner. It helps gloomy days be more cheerful. It keeps lessons, attendance and grades in one place. It just improves morale.
I wasn’t super excited by the Happy Planner release this year (HP is my current Teacher Planner publisher of choice), but settled on this after I convinced myself it was full of ornithologists. My daughter (adorably) unboxed it for me so you could see it. I think she’s a natural.
