Ready for Back to School?

No, me neither. In fact, here's a reminder about summer...

I'm nowhere near ready to go back, but I did just finish up my August and September Printable Pack! Last October I had the idea of making seasonal printables for each month so that I always had a nice collection of activities at the ready for things like unplanned absences, homework, morning work, center supplements, early finisher work, and those times when you just need the kids to have something to do on their own for a few minutes so you could catch your breath <--I mean we've all been there, right?

Since I had that bright idea back in October, I scrambled each month to have the next pack ready by the start of the next month. Which meant that most of the time, I was totally confused because instead of focusing on the current month, I was obsessing over the month ahead. I do strange things to myself. Now I'm happy to say I have ALL of the months completed! <insert chorus of angels singing here> I've had numerous requests to bundle them, but alas, I won't be able to because the file sizes are just too large.

I have to say, this pack might be my favorite. So much so, that I'm going to go back and update some of the older packs to bump them up to the standards of this one. I will do that before the end of the summer. So here's my newest baby! It's full of back to school, get to know you, seasonal, grade appropriate printables. Almost every page has CCSS standards for grades 1, 2, or 3 right on the upper corner if you need that for your plans.
You can check it out on TpT here. In case you missed it, I also uploaded a second set of EZ Prep See-it Centers. I chose bowling and a day in the park because I thought they'd both work well for back to school or even if you were working with kids in a summer program. You can find those here.
I'm currently working on my Calendar Center task cards for August and September so they can be all be finished for the full year. I will have those ready in the next day or two and I believe I'll be able to bundle those. yay! As soon as those are finished, I'm back to work full steam ahead on my Common Core Essentials packs so I can have most of those done before the year starts... Whew! I'm going to need a break from my summer break!


  1. The same thing happened to me when I started creating monthly morning work packets last summer!! I was so glad when I finally finished May, and I promised myself that I would never do that to myself again!!!
