How Binders Can Organize Teaching Resources

A great, but simple tool for classroom organization and management is a 3-ring binder. They are perfect for organizing your teaching units and lesson plans as well as for creating student portfolios, collecting documents for your Teacher Evidence Binder, housing meeting notes, and about a million other things.

Check out my Editable Binder Covers. I designed them to include just about any type of image you would need a binder for, but made them editable so that you may title them as needed. For example, a reading-themed binder could be labeled as Book Buddies, RTI Reading, Reader's Workshop, Reading Conference Notes, etc.

I have six different editable sets available:
POLKA DOTS: Bright Colors
POLKA DOTS: Traditional Colors
CHEVRON: Bright Colors

Teachers like you always keep lots of binders on hand and repurpose them as needed each year.

I don't know why it took me so long to think of this... Read below to learn my solution!

Solution: Tweezers

TWEEZERS! Over the years I have blogged about some tools that I find to be essential for the classroom. I will now add tweezers to that list. The next time you are out shopping I suggest you snag a pair to leave in your desk drawer. I'm sure you'll find them to be handy.
