Lesson Plan Notebook Makeover

  Hope you are all having a FABULOUS summer!  It hasn't been much of a summer around here yet, it's been one rainy June around here!  We decided it was time to makeover our lesson plan notebooks and we though we'd share with you all what we keep inside of them.

 Our lesson plans make up the "bulk" of these notebooks and are located at the front.  
We have a master that we copy and fill in weekly.

 We have 5 divided sections with tabs labels for:
School Schedules:  
Here we place schedules from learning specialists, library/PE schedules, computer labs schedules, etc...
Assessment Scores:
All of our district/classroom test scores are stored in this section.
Student Information:
This section contains the student info sheets that we have parents fill out on open house.  These sheets contain student info, bus/pick up info, important phone numbers, and email addresses.  
Emergency Informations:
This section contains allergy information & other school wide student information forms.
Important Notes:
Here we keep notes from parents regarding bus/pick up changes, or any other notes that are important to hold on to.

Behind each tabbed divider is a section cover page (see below for examples).  Behind each cover page is where we keep the important papers and information.  At the end of each section, behind all of the papers, is a pocket folder that can easily hold small notes or other small papers.
If you'd like a copy of these pages, just click below the picture for your copies!

****WE'VE UPDATED THE COVER WITH 2014-2015****

Hope you all have a fantastic rest of the week!  
We're definitely hoping for some sunny weather to head this way!
