Makeover Madness!!!

I am just LOVING this TPT Seller Challenge! Some amazing bloggers had a brilliant idea and created this amazing seller challenge to complete over the next month! I'm excited to be joining Teach Create Motivate, Peppy Zesty Teacherista, Sparkling in Second, and Third in Hollywood for this fun little journey!!!

The first challenge is {Makeover Maddness} and the goal was to "makeover" an outdated product or product cover. Before the challenge started, I was in the process of making over one of my favorite products- {The Organized Teacher} Notebook! So, this challenge was absolutely PERFECT timing!

This product has EVERYTHING you need to keep your organized throughout the school year! I created it last year because I wanted to have a notebook that had everything I needed in it- from meeting notes, to calendars, to my student information. EVERYTHING! 

I updated the borders, fonts, clipart, everything! I wanted a more bold, sleek, look that still included everything! I also kept everything printer friendly! At my school I do not have access to a color printer, and I don't like wasting all my color ink on something that goes into a notebook- so the entire notebook (other than the covers) are printer friendly! 

After I was done updating ALL of the notebook (it took a really. long. time) I wanted to update the previews! 

I updated each cover to match the updated look of the notebook pages! Each cover is completely editable AND there are also 20 different blank covers that you can use to completley organize your notebook and make it your own! 

How perfect is my Pal from Lauren @ Polka Dots & Pals!!! I couldn't wait to add her to my Organized Teacher notebook! 

The Student Information Pages include EVERYTHING you need to keep track of all your students' information! From pages to have parents fill out at Open House, to student passwords, and birthdays! 

The Meeting Notes pages include 5 different formats for EVERY type of meeting you could imagine! And, the best part- they are completely editable! So you can print them off and handwrite in your meeting notes, or simply add text boxes and type in them during your meeting! 

These monthly calendars are the perfect way to keep track of your busy schedule! There are 3 different formats included- a one page calendar with a corresponding notes page, a two page spread, and a weekly calendar! 

These Monthly Planning Lists are my favorite! I use these pages to record anything that I want to remember for the next school year! I write down a book I want to read, a lesson that went really well, or any changes I want to make! It makes it so much easier to keep track of all my thoughts! 

The Weekly Planning Lists are to help you keep track of everything you have to do, to create, to print, to copy, to make, EVERYTHING! There are tons of different formats, and even a perfect to-do list to keep in your planner! 

The Lesson Planning pages are completley editable and have different options to quickly jot down your lessons for each week! 

And, if you are a blogger or TPT seller- these Incredible Ideas organizer are the perfect way to keep track of all your thoughts for your blog, giveaways, link-ups, and products for your store! 

Now, my next task is to add an Editable Substitute section for the notebook! What other sections would you like to see included!?

I had SO much fun completing this week's challenge! I can't wait for Week 2!!! 


  1. This is fabulous. I love how you take into account that teachers mostly print in black and white. I am going to wish list this. I think it would make a great gift to a classroom teacher. Good luck on the challenge.

  2. Oh my gosh - this look fabulous! It has everything I could need! I love the clear fonts and all the new pages you added! ~ Lisa

  3. This is great! I just purchased this product and I am looking forward to print and bind to get ready for next year. Do you think you could add a Grade book section? That is all I need to make my year complete! - Sarah
