Setting Up Teacher Binders



Keeping papers organized is necessary as a teacher. And summer is the best, best time to get ahead! 
Here is a look at how I set up my teacher binders for the following year.

Editable Teacher Binder- Classroom organization for the back to school seasons. Binder includes assessment forms, lesson plans, R.T.I. sheets, schedules, and more! 4 different designs to match your classroom. All editable teacher binders.

 I sell four different patterns of teacher binders in my store. 
There is Polka Dot, Chalkboard/Chevron, Bright Chevron, and Black & White. (links below)
These pictures show my Bright Chevron binder.

Each of these 'Teacher Companion's come with two versions: editable and traditional. 
When you unzip the folder, you'll have the option like seen above.

Here is your starting point! 
Grab the Teacher Binder Title Page. I use a big binder for the 'Teacher Binder' and put all of these sections inside of it.

The tab as seen above (Binder Covers) is where you'll find the extra binder covers for separate binders, such as lesson plans, monthly binders, etc.

June and July Paired Passages



While most of us are out of the summer already, there are still a few states going through mid-June.

Another idea is to use these are summer practice packets for your students needing a challenge. 

 There are 2 options: 
-Traditional printables for print-and-go options (GREAT for summer packets)
-Interactive Notebook option

Topics covered for these two months:
-Beaches
-Summer
-Father's Day
-Dolphins
-Fourth of July


Here is a peak at the printables.

Summer Practice Packs

Summer packets have always been a tough thing for me to tackle. Simply because with awards, report cards, end of the year fun, and all of the other craziness during the last month of school, it's hard to keep up with. 
That's why I decided to create these mini books for summer packets this year. 
It's as easy as PRINT- CUT- STAPLE!

There are two options in the summer packet:
1. 1-sided book
2. 2-sided book

I HIGHLY, HIGHLY suggest the 2-sided books. Each book only takes 8 pieces of paper per kid! 
And it makes it "staple-able". 


Step 1: Print out packet. 
Front/back if you choose the 2-sided book!

Step 2: Cut in half.

Step 3: Put top half on top of bottom half. 
 Page 14 and 15 should line up right in the middle.
No organizing or rearranging required!

Step 4: Staple! 
I have found that PaperPro One Finger stapler at WalMart is a magical tool!
Swinglines are good, too for more paper.
 

If your stapler isn't able to staple through 15+ pages, you can hole punch and tie!
