Welcome back to my Getting Ready to Go Back to School Blog Mini-Series! So, three more weeks until back to school. So, what am I doing now? Now is the time to MAKE STUFF! Now, I don’t go crazy making stuff, but I started a list at the end of last year of things that I wanted to make (or remake) for this upcoming school year. This is also the time that I start making my (big) purchases so I can be sure that my classroom is set up (coming up later in the series) for Meet the Teacher Night, which happens a few days before school starts!

So, what am I Making for Back to School?
I love the way that they turned out! After I cut them out, I will mount them on black construction paper, laminate, and put magnets on the back. Then, they will go on my board! (Check back soon for a pic when I get to setting up my classroom!)
I also made new lesson plan templates. Not sure if I am in love with them, but I am going to try them for a little while.
I still love to handwrite my lesson plans! I also like to color code them. My favorite pens for doing lesson plans with are these great erasable Frixion Gel Pens (yup, it’s an affiliate link). I LOVE all the fun colors!
This year for a Back to School gift, I bought my kiddos fun little space puzzles from Oriental Trading Company. So, I made the tags to go with them.
