Another Binder

My entire life doesn't revolve around binders, I promise. My classroom, on the other hand, well...

My 4th grade team makes packets for math, science, and social studies units. So everything the kids are going to need that 6 weeks are in the packet. It's kind of nice not having to make copies 3 times a week, and my students have been relatively good about keeping up with their packets (I've probably had to replace 15 throughout the year).

That means I have to keep up with my packets too. To do this, I [naturally] made a binder. Go figure.

My tabs are:
1. math (this is the student math packet, that I also use to make answer keys)
2. science (this is the student science packet, that I also use to make answer keys)
3. social studies (yeah, same thing)
4. Moose Math (this is our math homework packet, and this tab has my answer key packet)
5. Lone Star (this is our math warm up, and this tab has my answer keys)

The cover of our current math packet.

Inside our current math packet. It contains all the worksheets they'll do in class.

The cover of our current science packet.

Inside our current science packet. Contains the worksheets and labs they'll do this 6 weeks. You can see I've also made answer keys.

I paperclip all the old homework answer keys together so I can flip right to the current one.

If I lost this binder, I would be so lost. I love it. Everything I need for class in one place. When I have a sub, I just put a sticky note on the pages they'll use, and they've got everything in one place too. :-)

  15. If you want to earn more when you become a therapist or holistic practitioner, then
    it would make sense to have an open mind and move away from the mindset of treating your private practice as though it is a hobby,
    right. You got to get hold of the best professional therapist in town
    who can help you to fine tune and perfect your personality
    traits and bolster your confidence level to new high.
