Colorful Covers to Spruce Up Your Binders & A Freebie!

Do you all use binders to organize your subjects?

I used to use my file cabinet, but it would be so hard to find what I need and keep it in an easily-accessible format.

I recently switched and couldn't be happier!

Below, I have included pictures to links of some of my go-to binder resources (click the picture to be taken to all of the great info):

1. KindergartenWorks AMAZING Yearly Calendar

2. Kristen @ Ladybug's Teacher Files super-cute & complete binder resources

3. My weekly lesson template

These have helped keep the insides all need and tidy, but I wanted to spruce up the outside. Here's what I came up with:
Aren't these fun?!

The titles include:
  • Math
  • Science
  • Social Studies
  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Assessment
  • Spelling/Word Work
  • Planning
  • Extra
There is also a blank cover for any additional topic you need.

Binder spines are included as well! They will fit a 1.5" binder and larger, as they measure 1.2" wide. Three blank spines are included as well.

The backgrounds are chevron (of course!) and come in purple, teal and green. They look lovely with a white or a black binder.

Want a set of your own? They are now posted in my TpT Store.

And, as an additional planning resource, I am also posting this freebie to my TpT Store: My Weekly To Do List.
Use this every week to help you keep track of everything- from staff meetings to parent volunteers to the long to do list that never seems to end :)

Enjoy your new binders and staying super-organized next year!
