NOTES BEFORE PRINTING: While the PDF file is in A4 size, I design it with a A5 booklet in mind. The planner portion takes up only 5 pages (Page 2 to 6), but with the booklet layout, I inserted a front and back cover page (Pg1, Pg8), plus a random notes page (Pg7), to fill up both sides on 2 sheets of A4 paper. You can easily choose this under the “Page Sizing and Handling” options in the Printing menu. Click on “Booklet” and then “Both Sides” under Booklet Subset option. Preview to make sure that the printing of the 8 pages document will now take up only 4 pages on 2 sheets of A4 paper.
Every end of school term, I will do this. This year I made cover labels for the recycled notebooks and they are available for download below.
TITLE : “THIS NOTE BOOK BELONGS TO”

*This post is totally late as Teachers’ Day fell on the 6th September this year. But I think the links to the printables will come in handy again when the kids give their teachers a gift of appreciation for the end of the school year later in November.*
I prefer snacks like chocolates or candies when it comes to gift ideas. I’ll either re-wrap them with a customized candy wrapper, or re-pack them into little bags and add a cute gift tag for a touch of personalization.
I decided on this Owl Thank You Teacher printable from Living Lorcurto in the end, after sourcing through the list of possibilities from the web. The best part is : they are all FREE!

The week long school holiday was over in the wink of an eye. To get the kids ready for the new term, we created a leave-home-checklist: a list of items that they need to bring to school, e.g. water bottle, pocket money, student pass etc. Special items that are needed on certain days (like, art file on Tuesdays) are also jotted down.
It is useful for the morning rush hour, as the kids can get a bit disorganized on their way out to school. Best part: they do the checking on their own, and are responsible for their own oversight should they forget anything.
