Binder Makeover

Today's project: Binder Makeover
I store all my worksheets, ideas, work samples, and anything else that goes with that week's lessons in plastic sleeves in these binders (one for each nine weeks). They are getting full and heavy.
Jessica at Under the Alphabet Tree has created these fabulous monthly binder covers and spines. They are on sell at her TpT store.
The Before:






The After: Fabulous

I mounted the cover sheet on coordinating cardstock and I also copied two - one for the front and one for the back!
One down and eight more to go! Go check this out at her TpT store!

    1. Your blog is great-yes I am in your district! Are you excited to teach a different grade level? First grade is a FAST year. You just go week to week, test to test. You will be so great!

    2. I am sooooooo ready to move to first grade. I put in 6 years in Kindergarten and last year was the hardest so far. Sweet kids, but too many in one room (24 by the end of the year)! I'll be following your blog for ideas to get me through my first year in first grade. :)

  7. It's a great project! I have teo tall filing cabinets that are filled with stuff, but my binders have everything that I really use. I am just not ready to purge my files...sometimes old stuff comes in style again...maybe.

    1. Thank you! Now is I only knew what to put in them for each month. Our curriculum is changing due to Common Core and I am sure things will be moved around.
