Student Binder Freebies :)

Woah, long time, no blogging! I cannot believe how crazy these past few weeks have been! Thankfully, I had my surprise Observation this week, so now I can at least breathe a bit easier! And, hopefully have some more time for blogging! I keep thinking of all these things I'd love to share, but for some reason, the time just isn't happening! Here are some things for organizing your students during your first few weeks...Hopefully you can use some of them to make life in your own classroom a bit easier!

Here is my writer's notebook cover and the quickwrite prompts I'll be using this year. The first page is the binder cover, and the following pages are quickwrite idea-starters that I print on colored cardstock and put in the back of the binder (behind the students' writing).  We use these at the beginning of the year to spark good writing ideas, and the students love referring back to them all year long!

Next, is my song and poem notebook and complete with "Lucky Listener Log" (thanks to my lovely teaching friend, Diana!). This notebook goes home on Fridays only. After reading the poem in class all week and illustrating it during workstations time, the students will read the poem to one "lucky listener" over the weekend. This "lucky listener" will then fill out the log indicating that they heard the student read the poem.

Lastly, here are my take home binder covers and labels (for Avery 2 inch x 4 inch labels)...I just print the cover on colored cardstock and insert into clear-front binders. If you'd like to download the font for the labels, just do a quick search for CK Handprint :)


I hope to be back soon with photos of my classroom--that is, after we finish our SAT10 testing and I can uncover my walls! Right now they are covered in ugly brown paper! Have a great rest of the day!
