Classroom Planning A-Z ~ Helping teachers prepare for Back-to-School

Classroom Planning A-Z
It's back-to-school season! There are SO many things for teachers to do during this time and SO much to remember. Last year, I made a Classroom Planning list with detailed notes about each item and links to some freebies and resources to help you accomplish the things on your to-do list. It's a free resource on Teachers Pay Teachers. My listing there has it for new teachers, but I've heard from many veteran teachers who have found it helpful. I'm using it right now to make sure I don't forget anything!
Birthday Bags for Students
One very easy tip is to prepare NOW for the birthdays that you will celebrate throughout the year. What will you do about summer birthdays? Are you giving each student a little gift? I've seen cute, simple ideas of just a giant pixie stick with a birthday note attached or a book (use Scholastic points!) is always a great idea. I put together little gift bags. I've made a video of what's inside. Click here or on the picture above to watch the video on YouTube.

What do you do to prepare for back-to-school? What should I add to my checklist? Thanks for reading. Have a great week!
