These tabs have revolutionized my notebooks. I saw tabs that someone had created for their math class and immediately fell in love with them. I got on TPT to find some for science, but was unable to find what I needed so I sat down and got to work. I started with one set of tabs and have already switched to a newer version. The other Middle School Science teachers at my school have all jumped on my wagon and adapted mine to fit their curriculum. Our whole department has bought in to these and love how it helps to organize our notebooks.
I have combined both versions here for the price of one! You can choose what you would like to use in your class. Once you choose, simply print and fold down the center line, sandwich around the page, and line up the outside edge of the page with the line showing to insure that the tab extends out past the edge of the notebook.
Version 1 has the Pre and Post Test slots separated by each standard. If you test one standard at a time or use a data formatting process that breaks your tests down by how students scored for each standard, then these are the way to go! The students love to watch their growth and these can even help with your evaluations as data tracking is a huge plus with the principals.
Version 2 will be a creative way to institute a word wall. The words won't be on the wall, but Version 2 has a vocabulary section that allows your students to check off each word as you get to it during the unit. My principal also loved this version.
Don't like either of the Versions, but have a great idea you would like to try? Don't teach Science, but you LOVE these tabs as much as me? These are fully editable so you can even adapt it better to fit your needs without spending the extensive leg work time to get the formatting set up.
Best of all, my students have loved these tabs!!! It makes it quicker to flip to where they need to be. They can quickly reference our standards as well as vocabulary.
Disclaimer: I teach in Oklahoma and therefore these tabs are previous filled in for 7th Grade OAS Standards, but you can easily copy and paste your NGSS standards in place of mine.
