I have never had a teacher binder but had several binders with all I needed. As I started delving into the world of teacher blogs and Pinterest, I saw them all over the place! It made total sense to keep everything in one place instead of 5. So, I made one to fit my needs. Here is what it looks like and what is in it.
Here are the sections I included.
|I have to keep my lesson plans for five years, so they are here for the year.|
|Keeping a record of everyone's attendance is very important for data collection!|
|I keep all of the testing data for each student here. There is a tab for each grade level.||I change it out after each testing.|
I have to save "everything" we do throughout the year, but I find it hard to not let the kids take some of their hard work home. I have a filing system to store the most important things in and file as we work. This way I can take students samples and assessments I administer to meetings. Then at end of the year, I file it all away and get ready for the next year.
So, how do you keep life organized?
