Instead of one, I keep two separate "teacher binders" with all my of my info in them that I may need to have on hand.
Seating Charts & Attendance
The smaller and more used of the two looks like this. I made the cover in photoshop and the binder is a small flexible 1/2" binder. This binder is solely for my seating charts, homework and attendance.
Inside, I have five (one for each class) sheet protectors with divider tabs. The sheet protectors have my current seating charts. Behind each seating chart is a homework chart followed by attendance sheets. I have these things in their own small binder because I use them every period and I don't need to carry around all my other stuff. Also some of the other stuff is more private and this binder is usually all over the place so I wouldn't want it to accidentally end up in the wrong hands. It's never happened yet, but it's better to be safe.
The second is a 1" more sturdy binder. This one stays on a shelf behind my desk, but still has stuff I need to refer to often.
Inside here I have the following:
- parent contact log
- discipline log
- extra help log
- record of grades (every mid MP and MP grade)
- old homework logs (only the current one stays in the other binder)
- 9th grade course recommendations
- state testing scores
- previous year math final grade
Thinking about starting a Teachers Pay Teachers store and offering things like my posters from yesterday and things like this..maybe even personalizing them? Like a bell schedule with your times on it or these binder covers with your name on it. Thoughts?
