PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is my "back to school to do list" that I can simply update and refer to each year. It's so much easier to just DO everything than to stop and think, "What needs doing" before I can even get started.

I have organized this list in 2 ways. The first is to sort tasks into categories, such as what I need to create, what I need to print, what needs copying, things to purchase, and so on. That way I only make one trip to the office supply store, one trip to the laminator, one trip to the copy machine, and so on.

Following this list, I've broken up my tasks into time frames. Not everything needs to be done in June (unless you're going on a trip until the start of school, like I did for several years!) but you definitely don't want to leave everything once the kids leave in June only to feel overwhelmed the week before school. You want to start school feeling eager and in control. It's nice that first week to be able to focus more on who your new students are instead of what you need to do for the next day. This will put your students more at ease, and you will ALL be off to a much better start.

So here is my categorized "Back to School to do List" for you to update for your own needs. Some materials listed are available for purchase at my Teachers Pay Teachers store. The prices currently range from free to 99 cents.

I LOVE THIS!!! I know that this will save me a BUNCH of time trying to get everything done!
On  July 4, 2013Amber Thomas answered:
I'm glad you love it. :) It really helps me too, to keep things manageable when I just focus on a single section at a time. I got through half of the "print" section yesterday! This year also I divided my computer folders into color and black and white printing; that way I can save the black and white printing for when I'm at school.

Amber,

Another fabulous freebie to get me organized. I tell myself each year I am going to write something like this up and never do. Now I don't have to!

Thank you for sharing.

You're welcome! It was a MUST when I used to travel for the whole summer. Now it's just a really nice convenience. I'll be updating it soon for the 13-14 school year. :D

I'm glad you like it! As I said, it really helped me get organized over the summer. I actually enjoy getting things together because it feels more manageable. I can just enjoy all the clean, new goodies for the new year, haha. :D

thanks for posting this in word so I can edit it for my use.
On  January 2, 2013Amber Thomas answered:
Of course! :) A teacher's to do list is not a one size fits all sort of item! Even though it's my own list I have to change it yearly.
