Organization-Part 2

Where has the time gone?  We are still plugging along here in sunny Florida, but the beach is calling my name:)  7 days of school left!  I know I am not the only one thinking about how I can organize better next year.  Check out this amazing linky to help you get ahead of the game for next year!

I was at a Clinical Ed workshop last week.  Look at the organization tip the teacher next to me got from a Thinking Math workshop... A  composition notebook for workshops! 

The first page of the composition notebook is used for the table of contents.  Every time you attend a new workshop, conference or training you add the date, title and page number.

Then number all the pages in the notebook ahead of time for ease.  The suggestion is to only take notes on the right hand side of the notebook and use the left for reflections.

I have to say I love this idea.  I usually file any notes and handouts after workshops, but now they are all in one spot.  I am thinking of using a binder so any inserts can be hole punched and added to the appropriate spot.  Check back soon for a freebie to help you organize a binder like this!


  1. great idea. My notes are all OVER the place

  2. I've never heard of this idea before, but it is so cool! I seem to find my notes from workshops scattered everywhere in my classroom by the end of the year. I love this idea because it would let me refer back to previous workshops without having to dig through old paperwork! Thank you so much!
