It’s Back to School time in some parts of the world. How I miss the seasonal section at Target in America. Right now it is full of aisle after aisle of beautiful, cheap school supplies. I’ve always loved school supplies. Office supply stores are my favourite, I can spend an hour or more just browsing around Officeworks. I am positive that is part of the reason I was an accountant in my previous life (before kids), just for the sheer yumminess of the office supplies that went along with it. Ahem. Because it is Back to School time I thought I’d share the links to my Calendar Notebook and First Day of School Booklet again. The calendar notebook has been by far my most popular post (thanks to Pinterest– look at all those calendar notebook pins!). (ETA: When I wrote this post, that Pinterest link showed at least a hundred calendar notebook pins, but it doesn’t seem to show that many now. Not sure why.)
This daily math practice page has proved very popular. There are more pages, click here to see the original blog post. At the bottom of the that post you’ll see a link to pages I created with an American format.
Ironically after I originally posted about the calendar notebook, Skeeterbug started hating it. It was so hard to get him to do it that I put it aside for awhile. After about a month I pulled it out again and…drumroll…no problems whatsoever, he was happy to start it up again. We made one change – we’ve started using random numbers for the daily math practice page. (Previously we were using the same number as the number of days in school.) He’s quite happy to do random numbers like 333, 402, or 1000. Which means I need to add a Thousands column to the place value portion. 🙂
Here’s another Back to School printable, a First Day of School booklet.
This has room to record some vital stats and favourites. The original blog post has more details on the different pages included.
