Back 2 School Prep!

I am loving my new planner from Paper Plum Designs! I opted for the regular planner rather than the teacher version. The teacher version had too many pages that I just wouldn't use. I love how I can see the whole month at a time and it has notes pages after each month. Simple yet pretty! There are so many fun covers to choose from and it was hard to settle on just one! I chose this cover because it goes with the natural look of my room and it has a hint of mint favorite! I did the monogram wrong on purpose..The "M" is supposed to go in the middle but I thought the "L" would look prettier.  I also love that it is a spiral and can be folded back.
I bought these bright colored pens just for my new planner! (..and also for a bit of motivation to get myself planning for the new year!)  I'm going to use the chevron and polka dot washi tape to mark off special events and vacation weeks.
...and the back to school prep has started!  I got sidetracked organizing my assessment notebook and started making binder covers! I did manage to get all my divider tabs ready for this year, modify my lesson plan template, organize all of last years lesson plans, and put together all of my new students' daily folders.  I got a huge deal again this year on poly/plastic brad folders...24 folders for $12 at Office Depot!
I had to redo my calendar set for 2014-2015 and updated the design this year. They are available for sale in my TPT shop and they are editable in power point! These portrait calendars have a ribbon banner, doodle border, and a light chevron design behind the month titles. 

Here is the set of binder covers I used to organize myself for this year! I have this set and yellow/gray version up for sale in my TPT shop as well.
