LaborLESS Blog Hop!

Hello everyone!
ARE YOU REAAADDDY!!!

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!

The best advice I have is to stop reinventing the wheel and use everyone's expertise on your team.  Delegate jobs for each person on your team during planning times. 
One organizational idea that I've LOVED this year is sorting crayons.  When there are crayons on the floor at the end of the day, I just stick it in here.  When someone doesn't have a color they need, they can quickly find it here:

Playing with my kids is a great way to get my mind off of school and to focus on their needs.  
We live in Arizona and we're currently in the monsoon season, so the weather is acting a little crazy.  We've been taking walks around the neighborhood and it's been so relaxing.  I also get in some quality conversations that wouldn't naturally happen sitting on the couch.  Look at the amazing photographs I captured on our most recent walk!  I just couldn't believe the sky.  
Oh, and the pictures don't even do the sky justice.  :)
I love this time of year in Arizona.

Here's my Community Helpers unit that I just love using.  There are so many great activities that you can use right away and I know your kids will enjoy them too! Every year we do this unit, we invite our local firefighters and police officers in to teach the kids about their jobs.  Kids always LOVE this unit!
