Ladybug's Teacher Files
This week I explored a blog called Ladybug's Teacher Files and I found a whole section of articles that really interested me. Organization! I love organizing things and I like keeping everything in order. This whole section of articles could really be useful for me. The specific post I am reviewing today is called Keeping Track of Everything With Checklists. She talks about how difficult it is to keep track of everything as a teacher. It's not just about teaching the class but also being in control of everything that goes on. She said that she had found the answer to how to keep everything organized, and it is checklists! She describes a system that she uses for her checklist which is a book compilation of all of her checklists. She keeps them organized by tabs. She has a computer system that creates all her checklists very easily and it is available to everyone on teachers pay teachers. I use a lot of to do lists now but I can definitely see how checklists would be very helpful when I teach. You can keep track of all kinds of things like grades and performance and readiness as well as different classroom activities like who gets to do what when. I think this is a really great tip and I am excited to read more of her organization posts.
