I know many of you are already in summer mode and thinking about next year.
One of my projects is to organize my monthly binders.
This is a project I have been working on all year long and I still have some work to do inside the binders.
I have had my materials in binders for years.
My biggest problem is refiling everything during the summer. I spend hours sorting and refiling tons of worksheets.
Some of my binders do not even have covers, just worksheets of something that is in the binders.
However, I took a few minutes this weekend to make some covers for my binders AND
some matching side labels. Now that looks awesome on my book shelf.
Inside the binders I have these pocket dividers with all my copies for the week. I put them right back in the pocket and no more refiling.
Each week I have an outline for the week, this is helpful to me when I am typing up my class website.
Then I have my lesson plans. All of this is saved on my laptop so next year I hopefully will just need to tweak things a bit.
I like to put pictures of the books I am reading because I don't have time to read every little note. I like the visual reminders.
