First step was how do I keep myself organized?
-Binders! Binders! Binders! Keeping organized binders can hep with planning and student data.
– Keep lists of everything you need to complete. It seems silly but you will be surprised by how much more you can accomplish.
– Create bins for everything. All supplies, manipulative and centers need a home.
– Buy student rolling bins for by the desk. This not only kept less in their desk but gave them less items to distract themselves during instruction.
– Utilize composition books. Having a composition books for different subjects will make better references for students and keep them organized. This can be started as early as kindergarten.
