Monday Made It- CALENDARS

Summer is here! Monday Made-It is Here. Ramona Recommends is HAPPY! Today, I am linking up with my friend Tara from 4th Grade Frolics to bring you my typical first summer project... Calendars! Personally, I must have cute calendars it makes my busy life that much more enjoyable. Remember last years, Calendar reveal?

 I purchase the Blue Sky Planners from Target and give them a little Ramona Recommends makeover.
 I also create a blogging calendar to keep straight all of my blogging fun plans. During the summer months, this calendar gets filled. I am hoping during the school year I can add to my blogging plans at Ramona Recommends. #reallyhowdotheydoitall?

 I love the Erin Condren planners. I love her and her colorful vision for the world. I really do. But, there were too many pages I did not use. I like using EVERY. SINGLE. PAGE. in my planner. It makes me feel well.....accomplished! I also felt there was something missing. The something missing was my own creativity. I wanted a planner that shined with my creativity and was filled with pencil, highlighter, and more! It needs to scream ME! I LOVE color. Color makes me smile.I created a personalized, creativity, and well COLORFUL planner that shines Miss Hinshaw.
 I found these adorable dividers at Staples that are polka-dot. They come in hot pink, blue, lime green, and black. Unfortunately, I can not find them online. I added my teacher to-do sheets inside the front pocket. I can never have enough to-do lists.  My favorite thing from my entire planner binder is my PASSWORD POST-IT NOTES. OMG... I have never had to have so many passwords until I became a teacher. I think I will remember them, but I don't. I thought I would save helpdesk and my sanity and make a list.

 I made a monthly section for important dates and trainings. My favorite part I added personal quotes that pull at my heartstrings. October, "Everyone deserves a standing ovation once in their life."-Auggie Pullman.
 Here is my lesson planner! It is very bare right now, but come August 26th it will be full of "PENCIL only" plans for my 4th year of teaching. :)
I added a few quote pages in my planner. :) Lastly, another favorite staff meeting or team meeting note taking sheets. 

I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE my planners! They are so me and are filled with happiness.

Interested in a simplified version?
