Do you ever get overwhelmed with sweet notes from students? (It's a good problem to have, I know!) But what do you do with all of these drawings and notes? Hang them on the wall for awhile, then throw them away?
One of the greatest organizational tools I've found is the Notes for My Teacher Binder. Print out this great binder cover and spine label, and put about 50 clear plastic protector pages in the binder. Whenever a student gives you a note or drawing, tell them you are going to put it in your special Notes binder to keep.
This keeps your notes nice and neat, away from the trash, and in a special place you can reference later if you want to!
At the end of the year, clean the binder out and you're ready to go again for next year!
