As mentioned in so many previous posts, I am a nut for organization. At my school my principal collects plan books monthly to check progress that is being made. I have my own system that works for my plans, but in the plan book I have to pass in I need to include objectives and standards with every lesson. Of course I have objectives and standards to go along with each lesson, but it clutters up my plan book so I don’t include them on my personal plan book…that’s right…I have two. I have an Erin Condren teacher planner and a teacher binder which I use. The EC planner is on the expensive side, but I had a coupon and gift certificate. It was a great purchase! It is easy for me to organize and write my plans in so that they work for me. (side note: these pens are the best in the world!! They are erasable, but amazing to write with. I use them in my planner, which cuts down on the messy cross outs for changes that come my way.) I include my plans for the principal in my teacher binder which I pass in monthly. My teacher binder is not just a plan book, but includes so many things that I refer to on a daily basis. I created a TPT file http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Teacher-Binder-1042346 that I put into my binder.
