I'm Linking up with
Becca @ Foxwell Forest
For our THURSDAY
Tricks & Tips for Teachers
Here is my tip for the week...
I keep ALL of my student files in hanging files in a crate.
Keep this crate at arm's level next to your table or desk.
As you correct student work, assessments, worksheets...
Right away...don't wait for the pile to grow.."touch it once".
I don't file EVERYTHING...As a matter of fact..
I HATE TO FILE!
for my "lower" students, my INTERVENTION kiddos,
my CHALLENGE ( both academically & behavior )
I FILE WELL!
This has saved me tons of "hunting time" for that piece of paper!
Keep your crate close to where ever you correct papers.
Just correct them.. & file.
After parent meetings or progress reports or ...
SEND the papers HOME!
When I need authentic data...
it's at MY FINGERTIPS!
So, to help me get through the
"where did I put that?"
I LOOK IN MY FILES - First!
I wish I could say I do this 100% of the time..
Really? NAW...Some afternoons I am filing the "pile"
BUT...give me a minute & I will have it!
Good LUCK & Happy filing!
