My Teacher Planner! & a Giveaway!

Hey bloggers!

I am {SUPER} excited to share this with you!

I recently printed out my teacher planner/calendar. I printed some of the pages back to back and some single sided, depending on how I wanted the pages to line up. Then I wrote in the dates for the whole school year (and any upcoming baby appointments & what not that I already know about). I thought about typing them in...but that would take away the fun of using my pretty pens!! Then, I laminated the front & back covers at home (love my scotch laminator!) and took it in to Staples today to have it spiral bound! It only cost $4! :) 

I'm soooo happy with it! Here are a few pics:

I can't wait to keep adding to it! If you want to check out this calendar & the others I have like it on TpT, head over {here}!
Because I love it so much, I'm running a giveaway! I have the chevron & polka dot teacher planners (both editable) in my store and 3 lucky winners will get to choose which one they want! :)

One other pic today is of the magnets I made to send home on Meet the Teacher night. Each one has my name, school email address, & school number. (I added a bit of a blur to the picture...I didn't figure everyone needed my school info!) The crayons are mini card accents from Trend.
A few years ago I made these on different cards:
They're really easy to make. I bought the cards at a local school supply store along with clear Avery labels. I downloaded the Avery template from their site and typed in my info. Then I just had to stick 1 label on each card! (In the past, I have laminated the cards after putting the labels on but decided to save myself some time this year and skip that step.) Then I added the magnets to the back! Previously, I have purchased a magnetic roll to cut pieces from, peel the back off, & stick onto the cards. This worked just fine but this year I found some circular magnets to peel off & stick on the back. So simple! :)

I'm heading back into my classroom tomorrow to do some more work! Things are finally starting to come together. I can't wait to take some pictures of the room and get them posted for you to see!


  1. The calendar is way too cute!!!!! I am curious how you made the magnets? This is genius and I think I need to do that this year :)

    1. Sorry, I should have included that! They're very simple. I bought the mini accent cards at a local school supply store. Then I bought Avery Clear labels & printed my info on those. Then I just stuck 1 label on each card! In the past I have bought a role of magnet tape, cut strips, and peeled off the backing to stick it on the cards. This year I bought small circular magnets to peel off & stick on the back! So simple :)

  2. Your calendar looks amazing!!! My last name is Jacobson too!! :)
