Hi, bloggy friends! This is my 100th post!! Woo Hoo!! Thanks again to all of you who read this lil blog of mine!
Since some of you still haven't started back to school, I thought I'd link up with Fourth Grade Flipper for Tried it Tuesday to share an organizing tip I'm loving this year! (Okay, so no matter what I try I cannot get the button to show up on my post!!)
One of my teammates was kind enough to copy some student information sheets to have parents fill out at Open House. The sheets were a half piece of paper from a really old Mailbox magazine. I usually have parents fill out a different, letter sized form and then put them in a binder, but these copies were already made and I was happy!
Parents filled out the forms and then I wondered what I would do with that stack of little papers. Then, it hit me - binder rings!
I punched two holes in the cards, made a cover sheet from cardstock (using graphics from Ashley Hughes), and a back from cardstock, and added some binder rings. I then hung it on a thumb tack on the bulletin board right by my desk. Now I have instant access to my students' most important information!
I had some parent phone calls to make last week and all I had to do was grab this little book from my bulletin board and I was all set!
This is portable enough to bring along on a field trip and includes emergency contacts for all my students!
Do you have any tips on keeping students information organized and accessible?
