Back to School Prep

I feel more prepared for this school year than I can remember feeling any other year.  I've spent summer mornings in my pajamas, coffee in hand, working on school stuff.  I've rekindled my love of designing and creating paper products (it is a dream of mine to own a stationary store and help brides design their wedding invitations!).  I've spent days in my classroom and already have several weeks worth of copies made.  I'm hoping that I can stay ahead of the game. 

What do you do to keep yourself organized and prepared for lessons?  

Let's hope I didn't just jinx myself!


  1. I envy you. I used to be like that, but one you have a child priorities change. I've been to school twice, but I had giving up time with my baby to work when I don't "have to"

    Your blog is coming along nice :) I might try your duct tape on the rug idea. what do the squares measure and why didn't you use the whole rug...curious?

    1. I didn't use the entire rug because I wanted room to get to the easel and the Active Board without stepping over kids. I think the picture makes it look like there is more room on the outside of the rug than there really is. Each square is 20"x20" in a 5x5 grid. I think you would need to make the squares a little bigger for 2nd graders. Stop down and see it in person!

      If you need help with anything, just let me know. I had lots of days that it was just easier to get out of the house because my husband was home sleeping- I have *never* been this prepared for a school year! Thanks for following my blog :)
