So I've been wanting to move all my files into binder form and what better way to do it than monthly? I didn't want to have TOO MANY binders... b/c I don't have much storage space left in my classroom, so what I thought I would make was a binder for each month with 5 dividers in each labeled for:
unit (science/social studies)
That way I can bring my binder with me to planning with my k team and not have to search through my file cabinet for the themed file each week! =) I think I'm going to stick with a 1" binder b/c I will only keep one copy of each paper in it! (I'll recycle any leftovers!)
Here's a little sneak peek at the finished product! I have a fun little scrapbook cutter that I used to cut the binder spine labels neatly b/c I stink at cutting free hand! =) I'm thinking I"ll laminate them so they'll slide in easier and not bend!
I've created a kit for 1" binders, 1.5" binders, 2" binder and 3" binders. I'll be posting this on TPT soon, as my first item to sell! It took a lot of work to get these together so I hope you like them! =) I'll let you know when they are posted.
Oh, and the first 3 to comment will get them for FREE!!!!! =) These will be perfect to go with my free monthly drawer labels! This way you can put all your laminated centers in the drawers sorted by ziplock baggies and keep all your recording sheets/worksheets in the binder! I'll let ya'll know when they are posted if you are interested! =) Have a great Sunday!
