Teacher Binder Organization
Hello all teacher readers!! I rarely post about treachery things. However, the other day when I was looking at my stats and such I noticed that my TOP post of all time was my classroom tour. Wow! Who knew? Apparently there are some teachers lurking around.
This is my 7th year teaching and you would think I would finally have everything figured out. Well not in the least! Education is constantly changing and I am usually just trying to catch up. I did figure out a system for lesson plans in the last few years that really works for me.
This is what I had…functional but BORING! The binder and tab were just things I had laying around the classroom.
In comes the dollar spot at TARGET!! Yesterday, I spotted these beauties for only $1!!
I made myself a new cover….and put my weekly lessons on the cute clipboard. Now they are more readily available.
I added the new tabs for Curriculum Maps/Frameworks, Students grouping List (how I group students- ability/learning style), Benchmark Reports, Student List- activity schedule and RTI list, and Lesson/unit Plans for previous weeks.
I love having everything in one place. It is really great to bring to parent conferences, RTI meetings, and weekly faculty meetings.
All neatly placed in my fun 31 Christmas gift!
How do you stay organized as a teacher or mom?
