Welcome to August. If you are a teacher, you are likely bombarded with schedules, class lists, piles of lamination to be cut, and lesson plans to write. Teachers are busy, busy, busy people in the month of August. Besides making a cute classroom environment and getting everything organized for the first day, teachers must plan the entire school year. Planning your year can be overwhelming. It's helpful to have ready to go resources. I spent much of the last year finding great books for holidays and themes and organizing those books. Now I can check my calendar for upcoming holidays or themes that I want to cover with my preschooler, and locate the books at my local library or from my own collection. In fact, ready-set-read is a great place to do your weekly lesson planning. I thought I'd take a second to show you around the blog and help you find these great resources.
