I am so excited to welcome you to the Bright Ideas Blog Hop!! Thank you for taking the time to check out my bright idea.
This idea was shared with me years ago from a seasoned teacher and I have to say it is absolutely brilliant. I joined a team who liked to be ahead of the game. This meant stacks of papers everywhere! This eliminates the stacks completely and you are organized for a whole month of teaching. Can you say AMAZING!
I have 32 file folders in my file cabinet. They are labeled 1-31 for the days of the month and one says "Sub Folder". As my team makes copies I throw them into one of the dated folders where I think I will be using them. For example, I know I do my reading comprehension test every Friday. As my teammate makes copies of the tests I am able to pop it into the dated folder. NO MORE STACKS!!
The "Sub Folder" contains my generic lesson plans, class list, seating chart, extra work, and important information.
The best part is it is so easy to prepare for a sub or if you have an emergency you can send a teammate over to your room and direct them to the file folder for the day, week, or month if need be.
