Back to school is upon us!
I don’t know about you, but I really don’t know where my summer went… Well, maybe I do: a week setting up my school, a long weekend in London, a week in Switzerland a few days out/lunch dates and boom! Summer is gone and it’s time for school and, if you’re anything like me, you’re running through a mental checklist of all the things you need for the year ahead.
It's the first week of the summer holiday and what am I doing? Yeah, I'm bust prepping for next year.
So, I'm super late to the Teacher Toolkit train... by about 5 years LOL, but I kept seeing them on people's Instagram and decided that one would be useful in my attempt to keep my classroom organised and my desk tidy next. I had a look at some different labels on TPT but I wanted it to match my classroom décor so I made my own, which you can buy from TPT.
I don’t know about you, but in my school we talk a lot about the mental health and well being of our children. And rightly so. It’s one of the most important factors in our students education – if they're upset, stressed, worried or angry, they’re not going to be focused on reading, writing, maths or anything else we try to teach them.
However, what about teacher mental health & wellbeing?
Do you find yourself losing that important paper or forgetting what learning objective or skill is next while typing up lesson plans at the weekend? Is your desk hidden under a pile of loose papers? Are you constantly nagging at your students to be tidier? The struggle is REAL, I know, but there is a solution.
Good organisation is one of the key factors for a successful school year! and one of the main things that helps me is a teacher planner
Thank you so much for joining me on the launch of my new blog!!! I am so excited for this new adventure and thrilled that you are here to share it with me!!
I've been sharing resources on TPT/TES now for about a year, so moving into blogging and instagramming seemed to be the next logical step. My goal is to provide unique ideas and quality resources to help teachers keep their students engaged and in love with learning. Be sure to follow me on my social media channels to get some fun resources, ideas, and motivation for your students!!
I'm so happy to share my teaching journey with you and hopefully help you along yours as well!
I'm Ruth. I'm a teacher based in Manchester, UK.
I've been teaching for eight years and am currently based in Year Four, but I have also taught in Year One and Reception.
