We've all been there...your rushing and can't find the materials for the next lesson. Panic no more! This system is easy enough that your students can help you.
You will need 1 folder for each subject you teach in a day. For example, I teach 4 subjects that require materials on Monday. I have 1 green folder for each of the 4 subjects. Do this for Monday through Friday. Next, take all of the folders for one day and label them for the different subjects. Put them in a magazine holder and move on to the next day. It should only take 5 to 10 minutes and your system is done!
The only thing left to do is fill your folders with whatever materials you need for your daily lessons. I love being able to come back from the copier stick them in the correct folder and never have to worry about where I put them or materials getting lost on my desk.
Students can help!
*Teach students how and where to file upcoming materials.
*Students can be responsible for going and getting the materials for the next lesson or subject.
Hope this system helps you stay sane during the hectic school year!
