Making the most of planning time

Has it hit you yet? You know, the end-of-the-school-year-don’t-want-to-do-anything mood? Planning is always the hardest for me at the end of the year, my mind wanders, there are about a million things to do, and I really just want to spend the entire day outside.  This is the point in the year where I lean heavily on my planning systems to use my time as effectively as possible.  Here are some of the things that always help:

Recipes for the Classroom – All kinds of dough, sand, bubble, and paint recipes!
Seasonal Party Sign-ups and Reminders – to help get me through the final events of the year
A Year of Vocabulary Cards – An easy way to manage my writing center themes
All kinds of planning pages – so I don’t forget anything!
Newsletter Idea List – makes writing the last couple newsletters of the year so much easier
I hope my favorite resources make your end-of-the year a little easier!
