I did make new dividers. The same sections pop up each year, but I usually don't label the dividers. This time I made labeled sections. I used Tagxedo (because I may have an addiction to making things with this site.) For each section of the binder, I made a "chickadee" shaped word cloud. There are nine sections.
Lesson Plans-I keep pages for about a month at a time. At the end of the month, I file the lesson plans into the filing cabinet. At the back of this section I have a page protector with the masters of blank lesson plans for easy copying.
Calendar and Year Long Plan-School calendar and Year Long Plans. Also pacing guides and weekly schedule.
2nd and 3rd Grade Common Core-Teaching a blend, so need to know what both grades goals are. I also keep testing info and the like in the 3rd grade section.
Student Checklists-Homework Checklist, In-Class Work Checklist, Math Checklist...At the back of this section I have a page protector with the masters of blank checklists for easy copying.
Student Info.-Addresses, phone number, email, birthday for students.
Sunnyside Info.-This is where I keep information specific to my school. Assembly schedules, character ed. schedule, PBIS schedule, staff contacts, etc.
Meeting Notes-For things I need to remember from Staff or Grade Level meetings.
Ideas-Plans and to dos for later.
*I do not use this binder for assessment data. That needs its own binder and well I just don't see a whole lot of purpose in cutetifying that one:-)
The binder goes to and from school almost everyday, although I don't generally use it during the school day. During the school day, I keep the things I need on my clipboard. It goes everywhere, takes up less space, and for some reason I can keep track of it:-) My clipboard has the things I use on a daily basis with my chickadees.
-Current week's lesson plans (at the end of the week I return them to binder)
-Student schedules: For students who may go to speech, ELD, Resource Room, etc.
-Daily 5 checklist
-Reading Group List
-Math Attendance (because we switch kiddos around for math, I need to make sure I have everyone)
And on a completely random and unrelated note.....
