Hey Kinder Friends,
Well it is about that time... About that time to talk about Back to School and start getting back into gear. At least a plan for the year as you soak up he last of the summer sunshine and sip some sweet tea. When I think about back to school, I always think about my goal first. This year my goal has two parts. One, I want to communicate better with my parents and two I want to focus on progress monitoring in class. I want to communicate more regularly and frequently with my parents and I want to spend more classroom time progress monitoring individual learning goals. So, in one respect, I want to spend less time, to gain more time, to spend on the real important stuff. In a roundabout way it actually makes sense. Ether way you look at it, my goal is focused just like my learning objectives. And my mantra is laser focus. When I get distracted from my goal, I repeat it over and over in my head.
Earlier this week I excited to finish my Editable Yearly Newsletter Templates. A long overdue goal that haunted me for a while. This is my late night timesaver because I no longer have to concentrate on formatting and decorating a newsletter all I focus on is the...content. Without having all the worries of decorating and formatting a newsletter, I save time. And if I have a lot to say, there is a coordinating page two. And it leaves me time to use the coordinating editable stationary to type up some individual notes for ongoing communication with my families. With well over 30 different themes, I know I can find what I need no matter what time of the year it is. And if I want to get creative I can play with colored fonts and different styles and print on white paper or keep it simple and stay with black fonts and print on colored paper.

Now that I have taken care of part of planning for my goals, I can spend some time thinking about the first few weeks of school. In order to save a little more time during this busy season, I am always on the hunt for the basics just like so many other teachers. So, July 27-28 my entire store is on sale right before the Back to School rush hits so hopefully I can save you some time to work n your goals for the coming year!
