I swear I must be crazy. In two days we are on February break. And I can't wait...so I can work on teaching things!!! Please tell me I'm not alone in this (I know there's no way I can be, with all of the fantastic things you all are always blogging about).
You should see me just before summer vacation. Of course I'm looking forward to sleeping late, drinking tons of coffee, going to the mountains, etc. But, most of all, I LOVE LOVE LOVE to work on projects and lessons! I already have my plans for this summer. And a million different things I want to do for next week.
Can you tell I'm getting a bit out of control?
To help myself calm down and focus, I talked to one of the most organized and efficient teachers I know at my school. She's awesome. She told me how important it is for her to have lists to keep focused.
I know she's right, but I've always been on-again, off-again with lists.
So here is my renewed attempt at lists. I think this will work for me. They are small enough to be used for each day/week (and the list won't look too overwhelming!). I'm going to clip them to my planning book. I made four to a sheet and tried to space them out evenly, so only two cuts are needed.
Then I had to use a bunch of different kids...because I just love variety! They print out nicely in grayscale too, if you want to save your colored ink.
So here's the To Do list.
Teacher's To Do...
And I'm dying to know--who else in teachers-blogging-paradise loves making things and planning on vacation??
Please don't leave me out here alone! :/
