I’m linking up again with Doodlebugs Teaching for another week of Five for Friday!
I was inspired to create a layout in my personal planner featuring one of my favourite comic book heroines, Kitty Pryde (aka Shadowcat) from the X-Men series. I embraced the idea of using multiple washi tapes in three colours and lots of patterns for an asymmetrical-type look and I have to say, I really love it. Follow me on Instagram if you’re interested in seeing older/future planner layouts!
Also, I’d love to know if you use a personal planner. Do you decorate? Do you not? What do you love about it?
I got a very lovely Kate Spade notebook for Christmas last year from Mel (From the Pond) and while I’m not a huge ‘journaler’ I am trying to spend a night or two each week putting words on to paper in it, filling it with water-coloured pages, quotes and random thoughts.
I’ve yet to pack away my washi tapes from the planner layout in #2, but there’s just something about the colours (especially the yellow and black tapes) that I really like seeing on my desk at the moment, especially in front of my wonderful, big candle!
Finally, something ‘teacher-y’ for the week. One of my drawings for the week, while my kiddos and I talked about creating detailed pictures to help us begin our writing. I was thrilled this week when they not only took some time to think about their pictures (based on our Investigations sessions) and then had a really fantastic go at using their phonetic knowledge to put ‘words’ down on the page. (They helped me write my sentence phonetically, too, which was really adorable!) I’m so proud of them!
Thanks for stopping by, my friends! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
