This year I am going to focus on organizing my lesson materials as I use them. I was inspired by fellow blogger Mrs. H at Once Upon a First Grade Adventure.
Here is the cover for my ELA binder. I will have a copy of the state standards and my district's pacing guide at the front. I reference these ALL THE TIME, so I want them in a central location. Then I will have a section for ideas and how they panned out. Then all the pages we do as a class. I will also put my teacher copy of our journals in the binders to reference next year.
My goal is to hole punch and organize as I go. I will have a binder for each content area and will divide the inside by six weeks. I am really looking forward to this. I am taking on a new grade level, so I want all my hard work this first year to pay off the second and third years. :)
As always, help yourself to the free download! I hope you can use them. Good luck with your organzing!
