Teacher Binder Organization

Holy July!! Where has my Summer gone? I report back to school next Wednesday...tear! Now, don't get me wrong...I love my job and always get excited for my new kiddos, but I absolutely adore my Summers! Don't you?!

I have been so busy this month, but I am not really sure what I did! LOL! I feel like I have neglected this little blog 'o' mine! Over the next few weeks I will be posting pictures of my classroom. I am going TOMORROW for the first time. I have to make room in the storage closet for a new teacher...YIKES! Where am I going to put my stuff. I can tell you for sure...tomorrow it will be on the floor in my room. I HAVE to go through some things and throw away. I have been at this school for 7 years and have a feeling some of those things haven't seen the light of day in 7 years! LOL! Please tell me that you need to do the same too. If not, then lie to me!! :-) Here is my first in a series of 3

Binder Ultimate Binder collections!! You can get your teacher binder from my TpT store. Simply click the cover below.
Here is the cover and spine inserts. I included 1", 2" and 3". I will be using a 1" binder. I also made tabs that you can laminate and attach to the binder inserts.

Here are the binder inserts that I have included. I printed these on cardstock. I wanted them to be a little sturdier. I also put them in page protectors. My district provides us with standards and a pacing guide. I will simply hole punch those and put them in the binder as soon as I get them. I made a year at a glance page, a separate month calendar AND a page for you to write out special days, meetings, curriculum and themes for the month.

These are some various pages...a to do list, year at a glance page, contact info, schedule, roster, birthdays, and student transportation form.

Here are the calendar pages! I love how they turned out!! 

Here are the pages that I will copy front to back. They are lesson plan pages, meeting notes, and planning notes. I hope to get this loaded to TpT TONIGHT!!

I will also be putting together "The Ultimate Student Binder"
and "The Ultimate Sub Binder"

I also need to apologize about the Daily 5 book study. I was at my parents' this last week. I swear they live in the boonies!! LOL! Their internet was terrible. So, our book study is a little behind. I will be wrapping up the final linky on Wednesday! I will include direct links to all of the past chapters. I am so excited to start D5 this year! How about you??

  7. Hi Tammy,

    I can assure you that you are not alone in going back to a classroom in need of a cleaning out. I've been back in mine since last week and am closing in on the mess monster.
    I absolutely love your blog. You and the other bloggers have given me so many ideas and a great deal of inspiration. I'm truly looking forward to going back to school.
    Good luck with your projects.

  8. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! I may need to add this to my collection! My sub binder is ummm not started?!?! Next week huh? Did you get out earlier than us?

  9. I love all of the things you make. Where did you get the frames you use on your products? I have been looking for something similar. Thanks!

  10. What program do you use to create your stuff?
