This was exactly the kind of organizational idea I needed so I changed mine up a bit and am calling it Teacher Tuesday. Each Tuesday I'll feature a summer project that I've completed for my classroom. With this manageable goal I'll be able to get all those projects done before school starts!
This week I created a Teacher Binder!!! Being the organizational freak that I am, this binder makes me smile every time I look at it! I got the idea from Jenn at Beyond the Grades Here's how it turned out....
The cover! I found some free printable scrapbook paper on Pinterest.
I added a pencil bag to keep my grading pens, sticky notes, a calculator, and stickers.
I'm planning to use the same form she uses for Student Data. The original is from Busy Teacher Cafe, but I'm going to tweek mine a bit to make the testing section more detailed for our state.
and I just couldn't resist decorating the back (yes, this picture is horrible).
I purchased the white binder and tab dividers at Walmart for under $10. I printed the paper and used some scrapbooking paper I already had on hand, so it was super cheap. I've just go to print calendars, student information forms, class lists, and gradebook pages.....all to be done at the last minute, just before school starts.....I cannot wait to use this thing for the 2012-2013 school year!!!
Next week I'm tackling student number sticks and the classroom library!!!
