Work Smarter, Not Harder

Hello everyone!

Main Graphic Laborless

It is Finally here!

Today I am linking with Laura from Where the Magic Happens, Krista from Teaching Momster, and Lisa from PAWsitively Teaching! I have joined forces once again with my bloggy friends to bring you the best, most amazing giveaway on this Labor Day weekend!
All of us have been thinking about  good ways in which to treat our readers and followers.   We thought hard, and I mean it! Really, really hard… and decided that  we can treat you to our best ideas to work smarter rather than harder… at school and home!
I know what it takes to be a great teacher, the stress, the time, the energy… I could go on and on! I also know that we crave time to ourselves and our families.

So here I go!


Plan ahead!  I am a planner.  I like to have things planned and prepped for the next week by Friday before I leave for the day.  On of the tools I use to help myself stay organized and know where to locate things are these daily tubs.

I got these tubs from Lakeshore Learning years ago and they are still in great shape.  I color code the files folders for each day and have a matching emergency sub folder for each day.  Each of our days are so different that I feel each day needs its own explanation.

Home Sweet Home!

After a long day at home, I arrive home kick off my shoes and do a few chores for the next day.  As you may have figured out, I am organized and I like to have things ready for the next morning.  So, I feel relaxed when I have the coffee maker ready to go for the morning and lunches prepped for the next day.

Once I have all of that taken care of, I multi-task on our exercise bike.  I ride, read blogs or Pinterest on the the iPad and watch Jimmy Fallon from the night before.  It's my mommy time!

Are you a walking dictionary?  I know that I am not and I tell my kids that all the time.  I want them to learn to use tools to help them spell words on their own.  My students love "The Littles" word lists when it comes to writing.  It helps generate ideas and keeps my sanity eliminates the "how do you spell?" syndome.

This is a growing bundle.  I am always open to suggestions to new topics.  As of today, they are 54 words lists included!  Click below to learn more.
