I've been thinking a lot about how I want improve for next year. One of my major goals is to be organized in one binder - lesson plans, grades, calendar, standards, and units. The past couple of weeks we have been working on re-developing our math and reading units, which has helped me to be organized already.
I want to share with you my teaching binder for 2014-2015. I'm so excited to already have this put together!
The first thing I did was scour TPT looking for a planning binder that fit my needs and planning style.
|I came across this great editable one by Ashely McKenzie|
Next, I edited it to fit my needs and uploaded it to Best Value Copy to have it printed in color, hole-punched, and spiral bound. It turned out fabulous!!! I then added it to a 3 ring binder and labeled each section.
The teacher planner includes a lesson plan template, a section for grades, and a calendar.
I then added my yearly editable curriculum map (purchased from Traci Clausen), copies of our updated reading and math units, and the Common Core ELA and Math Standards.
I feel really good about starting off the new school year in an organized manner. Now to keep it that way all year long! :)
So tell me, what are some of your back to school organization must haves????
