Have you ever stared at a stack of planner from years past and thought what a waste of time and energy?
I have come to realize that lugging around a planner day after day and squeezing everything into a small square that I can't even read isn’t for me. Let’s not forget about all of the messy crossed out plans that had to be moved around because of that unexpected fire drill.
The Feeling of writing and rewriting the same thing over and over again year after year because your following the same curriculum.
That’s when I said enough is enough!
There has to be a better way.
That’s when I decided to embrace the digital world of lesson planning.

Calendars with digital stickers to on top of everything that is due.

All About Me Week 1
I always forget what a roller coast ride it is the first few weeks of school and this year was no exception. It was packed with ups, downs and all around, but it was also a very successful and fruitful week with my new group of little ones.
Here is a peak at what we did.
At our morning meeting we had fun singing our ABC with this new movement song.
Work Time (Learning Centers)
This table of friends worked together to make a pan of cheesy cheese noodles. While practicing their fine motor skills.
Children learning how to use scissors with this color sorting name collage.
How tall are we? Children worked together to see how tall they were. "She is 8 blocks tall." "If you cut the block in half then it would be the same as the bean bags." Love their thought process.
We introduced dice with this roll and color activity.
Small Group Activities
After children measured their friends at work time they were able to practice their new skill with some How tall are we? measuring mats.
We practiced making facial features with draw and wipe mats.
Children played with lakeshore kids sorting and counting. Looking to see which group had more and less.
As they were working with them some patterns even emerged.
