Happy Labor Day! Are you laboring away like me? Yup, slaving away :) I have a few things to share with you today!
First up: I am a blogger who needs a schedule. Period. Sometimes I wish I could fly by the seat of my pants but I can't. After time and time trying....I have to schedule things because honestly, I'll forget what I'm suppose to do. Bad memory. Boo.
So here is my FALL schedule for A Modern Teacher. I am soooo excited about this year. It really feels like--January 1. So, HAPPY SCHOOL YEAR! :)
So to start it off with..a little tip on organization:
Find a writing utensil that makes you happy.
I know what you're thinking...a pen that makes me happy?? I can really hear you asking me in a high pitch voice. (you're a teacher, you know this already :)
No really, you gotta write anyway, so why not write with something that makes you happy. Whether it is a pen, pencil, thin marker, or sharpie. It helps us want to stay organized. I know it sounds crazy but try it!
One of the fun things I get to do as a blogger is try new products and that includes office supplies. These past 2 weeks I have tried a new lines of pens from Zebra Pens. One is called the Zebra Z-Mulsion EX Ballpoint Pen and the other is called the Zebra F-301 RetractableBallpoint Pen
The look and feel of the pens were great. One has a grip pad and was comfortable to write with. Of the 2 pens though, I liked the Zebra Retractable Pen. It just wrote better. There were some inconsistencies in the ZMulsion. As I wrote, some lines were thicker than others.
However, they did send my quite a few pens. I would say that my favorite everyday pen would have to be the ZGrip Max. My husband said his would have to be the gel pen :) That for me would be for fancier writing. They have all kinds of pens: metallic pens, twilight pens, candy pens...too fun! Maybe they will send more and I'll have a giveaway. See some pictures below. Head on over to Shoplet for a ton of office supplies!
So, are you a pen snob?
See you on Wednesday or tomorrow over at Classroom Celebrations!!
