Planning . . . New and Improved!!

During the summer I have always had high hopes of what I was going to do with my plan book for the year.  I custom make my plan book, and spend a lot of time setting it up during the summer.  Then once school starts I am really good in the beginning, and then I get lost, and stop using it.  Now don't freak out, I still plan, just not in my plan book.  You see, we have to write all of our plans on our web based system, so I rarely ever look at my plan book.  I plan out my units on paper, and then just input them all online.  This has been working, but it has also left me scrambling a few times to find enough math activities, or to make sure that I knew what I was supposed to be doing.

I think I have found a way to plan that 1) I will LOVE, and 2) that I will use!!

Using something is even more important then if I love it, and if it looks pretty.  It really doesn't matter what it looks like if I won't use it.

I am pretty stoked about this, and know that it will take more paper if I wanted to print it, but really, why do I need to print it?  If I just keep these all on my computer, I could have them all set up, and look through.  Plus it will make planning next year that much easier!

Planning this way I'll know exactly what TPT product I used, what page I used in the packet, and then I could always go back in and leave notes on the document I created these in if I have notes to leave about what worked and what didn't work!

I love this, and look forward to planning this way for the rest of the year!

  1. This looks like a great way to plan. I do my planning on my computer, but I'm interested to know what program you are using that allows you to save it all year. Any tips would be appreciated. PS Your blog is adorable. I'm just starting out. If you have time, I would love you to check mine out.
