The beginning of a school year is exciting, and overwhelming! Even as a veteran teacher, I feel like I don’t know where to begin. Here’s a stamp sheet for us teachers to have a little fun (and organization) while prepping for the new year.

Copy the image and paste it on a document or download it below. Give yourself a stamp when you complete a task! Challenge a colleague!

So why is PIE the reward?? Back in high school, my friend Chris’ mom was an elementary teacher. I remember that every year, the evening before school started, they went out to get a piece of pie and relax a bit. I love that tradition! So when I was a teacher and was anxious that night before the first day, I would go get pie. So thank you Mrs. Hogue for that great idea.
