July Blogging Challenge - Binder Help
Today is a cold, rainy day. As a result, I have a headache and I really just want to cuddle up with my Kindle. Days like today are really rare in my area. Usually, mid-July is around 100 dF, not the current 65 dF - that's even colder than our normal daily low! BRRR :)
Today I have a dilemma... I need to revamp my binder but I'm not sure how to do it. I have two ideas floating in my head and YOU get to help me choose!
The first option is one inspired by my desk calendar that I purchased last winter in the Target Dollar Spot. It is a weekly calendar with the dates at the left and "jot space" on the right. I really love this calendar, so I replicated it for my teacher binder:
Each week will be a two page spread. On the left pages are my weekly lesson plans. On the right page is a weekly calendar with jot space. Here will be my to-do lists, notes to myself, etc.
The second option was inspired by the traditional agendas that you find in the back to school aisle, with a full week on a two-page spread.
Help me out..
Which one do you like? Why?
I am on a personal challenge to blog every day in July, just to see if I can do it. I would love to have you join me! If you are worried that you've missed a few days, please don't stress.. just jump on in! Maybe a month is too much, that's okay, try it for a week, or every other day, or once a week.. whatever works for you!
Don't forget to visit the other July bloggers and show them some love!
