Getting Organized with a Teacher Binder

Keeping data organized is my constant battle.  It seems the longer I teach the more quantities of data I have to keep track of.  I’m super excited about the new teacher binder that I just finished developing.  First, It has really cute cover options which are definitely a must!  😉

Then, inside one or more binders, I can organize EVERYTHING!  What I’m most excited about is that I’ll have all the lists pre-ready and I just need to fill in the data when I get it.   I have a cute cute sheet for a class list plus a bunch of other student data forms like one for ID numbers, another for usernames and passwords, transportation lists and so much more.

I’ve also got forms ready to go for my own professional development.  I have a variety of options for meeting notes, a form for keeping track of professional development credits, and a team meeting form.

Then there are a whole other set of forms all ready to create a separate substitute folder   .  My sub folder will be rockin’ with emergency procedures,  sub notes, classroom procedures, daily schedule and more.

I don’t know about you, but I feel like I’m always scrambling to find the standards when I need them.  Plus, I needed a way to keep track of which standards I’ve covered during the course of the year.  So I copied them off of the CCSS website and reformatted them into a checklist.  I’m planning on keeping them in my main binder with all of my lesson plans so they are always right there when I need them.

I’m also one who is constantly rearranging my desks in my classroom.  Sometimes we’re in pairs, sometimes in groups and sometimes in rows.  So I created 10 different blank seating charts to help.

Last but not least I made this CUTE CUTE CUTE calendar to keep in my binder.
