Make a Year Monday {FREEBIES}

Please tell me that I'm not the only one sitting here getting depressed not only thinking of the summer quickly coming to an end, but thinking of everything I have to finish before August 17th! Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love my job, but I also LOVE the part of my job where I can wake up at 10am and lounge at the pool in the afternoon. 

Ooh....anyway, because I am just over my head in things to complete I am going to give away some awesome things that help me at the beginning of the year. I hope you enjoy!

Here is my dismissal list that I hang up on the wall as a quick reference.

This is a parent excuse note that I put in my notebooks for the parent's to fill out. It is quick and easy and really cuts down on the unexcused absences

Enjoy my friends!! I'm saying a prayer for all of you friends out there preparing for the new school year. I feel it's one of the toughest parts of this job--especially when you try to be extra organized!


  1. Thanks for the freebies:) I'm feeling overwhelmed at the moment too...gonna change things up...that's always scary, got moved to a new room, yikes, schedule change....the list goes on...glad I'm not alone:) I'm a follower:)

  4. Thanks for the helpers! I have been teaching 20 years, but this year I'm moving rooms and grade levels! I have to have everything ready before the first day of school for our meet the teacher night. Nerves are starting already!

  5. I am sooo with you...love my job, but summer is going way too fast!! Enjoy what's left of yours! :-)

  6. I am completely conflicted. I get excited about going back to school but then at the SAME time I feel sad because I will have to WORK. I love sleeping in, until 10:30 everyday.
