Let’s Dive Into the Binders I’ve Set Up for My Classroom:

1. Curriculum Documents Binder

Having this binder set up is the ultimate organisational tool! Keep track of all the curriculum documents that your school uses. Having a central place for all this information is a game-changer!

2. Student Records Binder

This is a great binder to keep medical information, parent communication, behaviour plan, Individualised Learning Plans and any other student information sheets that you might collect over the year! You can also print off a student information sheet and a parent contact log to keep track of parent communication throughout the year!

3. Reading Assessment Binder

Keep all your reading assessments in one place by keeping them all together by having a plastic pocket for each student in your class! This way, it is easy to locate the data for each child throughout the year.

4. Letter and Word Assessment Binder or Word Assessment Binder

Keep track of all your letter and word assessments by adding them to this binder. Again, have a plastic pocket for each student to find everything you need immediately!

5. Maths Assessment Binder

This is another binder where you can add things that your school uses – get those plastic pockets back out and label one for each student. As you complete different formal assessments or pre or post-assessments in each class – just add it to the students’ plastic pocket!

6. Writing Assessment Binder

This binder is like your Reading Assessment or Maths Assessment Binder but for Writing! This is one of my favourite binders, and it has changed how I complete my Progression Points for Writing at reporting time! YAY! You guessed it – you will need some more plastic pockets, one for each student! Twice a term, I take a writing sample from each student – either random or a school-wide moderation piece- and analyse it using the Mackenzie, Skull and Munsie Writing Analysis Tool. You can also download a printable copy here!

And Now, My Favourite – Whole Class Ongoing Monitoring and Notes Page

Revolutionize your note-taking with this resource. Edit the page to feature a box for each child, print out as many as you need, and enjoy the convenience of quickly jotting down notes for various activities. A complete game-changer for busy teachers!

By embracing these free printables and implementing the suggested binders in your classroom, you’re not just streamlining administrative tasks but transforming how you manage information. With each binder serving a specific purpose, from curriculum documents to ongoing monitoring, you’ll find yourself better equipped to meet the diverse needs of your students. So, let’s embark on this organised adventure together!
