Plan With Me Sundays Linky and Giveaway!


I'm joining Kreative in Kindergarten and Keeping Up with Mrs. Harris as they co-host the Plan With Me Sundays linky.

 I love the thought of organization but I truly struggle with it. Sometimes I think I love the paper and pens the most! I have learned to enjoy making checklists more since I've found bullet journaling and applied it to my lesson planning.

I wanted to start planning more specifically for my blog posts and my TpT store and I knew I needed and wanted more structure than only the bullet journaling could offer. I found a few freebies and I purchased and downloaded some specific planners and I keep coming back to the same one. It's Mandy Gregory's "Teachers Pay Teachers and Blog Planner (2015).


I like how I can see all of my socials on one page. So simple and so needed.

Check-listing abounds in this planner.

Reminds me of my favorite--bullet journaling.

Things to check off every day on the planner!

I really enjoy using the disc-bound notebook systems. I mostly have Arc notebooks from Staples and a few things from Levenger as well. I like how it is so easy to move pages around, yet not bulky like a binder.

If you like looking at how teachers use their different planners, check out the linky below, but first make sure to enter to win one of two types of planners like this one AND a Michael's gift card!

  11. Those are from Levenger and I've been waiting to use them for just the right thing. They cost more but they seem like they'll last for-e-ver, or at least I hope so! Thanks for stopping by!
