Updated Binders & a FREEBIE Binder for Small Groups

Happy Summer, teachers!  I have updated my All-In-One Simple Style Teacher Binders for the 2017-18 School Year.  If you have already purchased one, but sure to redownload the file for free!  Here they are:

Awhile back I shared my CAFE binder set.  See old post HERE!  I will still be using CAFE in my classroom, but I have simplified my forms/binder and condensed my math and reading intervention documentation into one spot.  I am hoping this will keep things more simple this year!  Here are the forms and how I plan on using them:

1.  Create flexible reading groups (1=lowest group  5=highest group)

 2.  Keep notes on each group.

3.  Hold individual reading conferences with each student & keep notes on reading behaviors and strategies taught.
For this section of the binder, I have numbered tabs (1-30), one for each student.


4.  Create strategy groups for students who have common needs for reviewing or practicing specific skills in reading or math.

Here is the binder cover and tabs I will be using to organize it:

This binder is a free download in my Teachers Pay Teachers store if you're interested.  The packet also includes a PowerPoint file for you to edit/personalize your own cover.  I listed the Kimberly Geswein fonts I used, which you can download from her TpT Store.

I won't be using the binder to write lesson plans, rather just to keep notes and to keep track of groups.  Midway through last school year, I started using Planbook.com for lesson planning.  I was reluctant to start, but I will never go back to handwritten plans!  I am going to plan small groups on here as well.  Here is a snapshot of how I have my planbook laid out for next year.

Under "Reading Centers", you can see which groups I will be meeting with and how often.  I will be adding more detailed plans once the school year begins, but this is the basic template I will be using.
