Getting Ahead of the Game 2017: Week 1

It's HERE! I sure hope this post finds you on relaxing and on summer break! Today kicks off a little Tuesday summer blog series called, Getting Ahead of the Game. You may remember it from last summer or follow my posts throughout the school year. Here is the truth:  You can't ever get ahead if your always behind. I created this blog series in hope of getting you ahead before the school year ever starts. Trust me, I know that you need this summer to lay low and relax, ME TOO. So I promise that each task won't take long and leave you feeling like you got something accomplished without sacrificing anytime at the pool!  Sound good? Let's go!

This week's task is to get that planner set up for the 2017-2018 school year! Go ahead and print out a copy of your district calendar and write holidays, professional development days and grading periods in your planner or planners! In the market for a new teacher planner? You have to check this one out!

 This teacher planner from Berteau and Co is amazing and obviously designed by a teacher. Every little detail will have you swooning! 

I love that you can have everything in one place! Student information, notes, birthdays, passwords, EVERYTHING!

And this pocket...😍
I can't wait to get this planner set up and ready for August! : )

Looking for a non-teacher planner? I am a huge Erin Condren fan and used one for years. I seriously love and adore everything about her planners, except the cost. 😐 I decided that I could find a planner I liked for less than half of the cost and spend the money I saved at Target or something. 😉 I ordered this planner from Amazon, but Target has some really cute planner right now too!

 I found these cute magnetic bookmarks at Target too! I use them easily find the week I'm on or notes pages. These would work great too!

So this week your challenge is to to get that planner (or whatever you use to keep your ducks in a row) set up for the 2017-2018 school year! Get to it! : )
