Here is a chart that I created so that I can make sure to get back all of the paperwork that is necessary. I have it on TpT and TN for FREE!!!! Just click the pic!
Head on over and get you a copy! You can edit it for your needs. Yay!
I also created one with my owl/forest theme.
Then, of course, I worked on my schedule. I'm a mom. So, I always think about the things that I would want from my children's teachers. Schedules are IMPORTANT!! I created the following for parents to keep a copy at home. I tell them to put it on the fridge as a reference. I've always gotten a GREAT response from parents. It is an item that IMPRESSES!!
The blank one is a template. Just type in your information.
Our school system is set up on a six weeks schedule. I don't like traditional grade books. We have PowerSchool (an online grade book), which I LOVE, but I'm not always in front of a computer when grading papers. I created this grade sheet/checklist to keep me a little more organized. I can type in my students' names and print out six for the six weeks we are in. Then I put them on a clipboard. It goes with me anywhere I think I'm going to get a chance to grade some papers. Then, when I am in front of the computer, I can type in grades.
It's just another great tool that I use everyday. :)
I hope that I have given you some great things that allow you to be more organized.
Now, back to the Bat Cave...
