I LOVE binders. (and page protectors!)

I use them to keep everything organized. 

I even have most of them color coded by subject-so I know what to grab since I've been too lazy to make covers :)
Lt. Blue-Science; Dk. Blue-Math; Purple-Writing; Pink-Social Studies; Teal-Reading (Graphic Organizers)
Of course, I have WAY more than this....

I've stashed them on my shelves across the room-those hold more specialized units, like
as well as my interactive notebooks-one binder for each type of notebook (Math, Language, Reading).

For my supplies, I like everything nice and organized!

I use bins from the dollar store to help, and have sectioned off my wonderful shelving into areas.
Math, with Science on the very top

Literacy (and you can see some of my extra binders!)

Social Studies, Writing, Odds and Ends
Of course, my desk is always a different story-I'm a piler!

BUT, I always know where things are in my pile-it's when I get a wild hair to organize it that I have trouble finding things!

Part of my piles are due to my turn in bins-
 I have one for homework-and they have to sign in their homework-gives me a quick look at who is missing-and one for classwork.

This year, I'm going to try to cut down on the amount of  classwork turn in by doing more in their notebooks-we'll see what happens!

How do you organize yourself?

Smiles and Sunshine,


  1. love your binders! That is my goal this year - to make binders for everything! So far I have made 2 :) it may take awhile.....

  2. I also use binders. My plan book, along with all the extras, gets huge and annoying. I think I might need to rethink it. :)

  3. I use to be a binder and sheet protector girl, but I have set a goal for this year to get rid of the binders and be fully digital. Our copier scans to our computer system. I have been going digital for a couple of years, but with Drive I am ready to make the full leap.
