Organize With Folders

Get yourself 5 folders that are fully colored. Make sure each is a different color.

Each folder has specific information that you need with you at all times. A basic setup might look like this:

Red folder - For critical information. Medical information and parent contact information should appear in here.

Green folder - Attendance. You never know when you need to know where your students are.

Blue folder - Grading. Maybe daily grades or weekly posted grades.

Pink folder - Community news. Events and activties that are going on in the school community.

Yellow folder - Missed work and assignments. The first folder you will need for students that were recently absent.
