Welcome back!

Welcome back to a new school year! With our first week only halfway over, I hope the kids are settling in (and so are you :)

This week's resources aren't particularly techy, but I hope you find them useful as you start your year!

First, I found this picture on Pinterest of a Classroom Timeline. Throughout the year, you can take pictures and add captions to it for special events and activities you do with your students. And, it's a great visual for them to learn how to read a timeline too!

Next, this teacher posted a link to her Sub Binder Templates.. and how perfect that we all got our sub folders to update today! Check it out and see if it's something that you can use to help subs navigate your classroom in your absence. 

I also found this blog post about getting ready for Curriculum Night. She has cute freebies of the pages she uses for explaining her curriculum, classroom schedule, and parent volunteers.

And lastly, I saw this free Data Binder on Teachers Pay Teachers. What a great way to get organized right away in the year as you get to know your students!
