I get to try out lots of innovative, new and fun teaching related items and over the years I’ve used many different teacher resources and tools. Some have been fantastic and helped save my sanity, while others that I thought were going to be great, ended up being too much hassle.
I’ve written about a few different teacher tools that have helped to make my life easier, which you can read at the link below.
Here I’m going to share with you a few other teacher resources and tools that I love to use and I hope you find them useful as well.
Amazon teacher resources
Okay this one may seem a tad boring…..but I use and love Amazon, even in Australia. I have bought so many cool things over the years and I’ve never had any trouble with delivery.
These were probably my favourite purchases. I looked high and low in the shops here for these storage drawers, but couldn’t find ones just like these. They’re so good for storing different bits and bobs. You can see how I’ve been using them in this article:
I also love my label maker, it’s not fancy but it does the job.
Have you made any fab purchases from Amazon lately? I’d love for you to share them in the comments below.
Erin Condren (EC)
I know I have written about my obsession with EC Planners before. Check out the article below if you want to read about a few different planners I’ve used over the years.
But what I also want to share with you are some of the other fab things that Erin Condren sell.
Recently I did a mammoth order from EC and tried out a few of their other teacher related items.
Okay I may also have a sticker obsession too 😉 But these are just lovely.
Lovely laminated calendars to use as a display in your classroom. They also reverse and have inspirational quotes on the other side.
There are so many uses for these beautiful boxes. I use mine to store all of my washi tape, but they would look lovely on your desk with all sorts of bits and bobs in there. Lollies would look great too!
The Mama CEO planner
As much as I love my EC planner, this year I have found that it hasn’t quite worked out exactly how I wanted it to.
It hasn’t really allowed me to keep track, plan and schedule for my many hats: work, business and home life. This meant that I was using about 5 different systems to cater for all the different things in my life.
Introducing my new secret weapon……The Mama CEO Planner.
Whether you’re a classroom teacher, specialist teacher, teacherpreneur, homeschooler or parent you’re sure to find this planner perfect.
Probably the best part about this planner is that it’s not just a planner, it’s your whole organizational system.
With this system you not only get the paper planner, but you also get 3 separate e-courses, an awesome planning wall poster and bonus tutorials, planning sheets and templates.
In the past few months that I have used this system I have never felt so organized and on top of all the stuff going on in my life. I know exactly what is coming up, from what is on the menu for next Wednesday’s dinner, to when my little girl has a birthday party and when I have an important work meeting.
I have my 90 day work plan all completed so I know exactly what I need to be doing in the next few months to help me reach my goals.
I’m using the large wall poster to help me keep track of my progress, and in a very visual way.
And I’ve used the My Tiny Empire post-it note course to help me map out a large project I’m working on. What’s fab about My Tiny Empire is that you can use it across all facets of your life. Whether you’re planning a work project, birthday party or even your new menu plan. It works just as well for all of them.
Look I’ll be honest it’s not the cheapest planner I’ve ever bought, but then again it’s not just a planner. It’s a whole system!
And I think for what you get it’s worth every cent. If you’d like to find out even more about this planning system, then you’ll love next week. I have the creator of the Mama CEO Planner (Megan Flatt) joining us to tell us more about the planner and bonuses.
But, if you also want to get on top of the rest of this year, and zoom into 2017 then check it out by using the link below.
I hope I’ve given you a few more ideas of teacher resources that are available. I’ve also put together a new page where I will keep all of the teacher resources and tools that I recommend and use. You can visit it by clicking on the tab above ‘Resources,’ or use the link below.
