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.
