This is my third year with EM. One of my teaching partners uses a three ring binder to put all of the overhead copies from each lesson. I loved this idea. I started late by making the overhead copies (mid-year) however, I will do this in the beginning of next year. Sometimes lessons refer back to charts and other lessons. You may ask, "What do your run off?". I run off a copy of math boxes, charts, and student journal pages that I may need while teaching the lesson. If a new game is being introduced, I run off any copied pages to play as a whole group. This is a great way to be organized and I can use them for many years. Very Happy

I use a three ring binder also. I purchased file pockets that will hold multiple copies. Then I tore apart the math masters, assessment pages, and home links. Each unit has three pockets for those three types of papers, in the binder. When I make transparencies, I three hole punch them also and place them with the paperwork for the unit. I make a notation in my teacher's edition that I have the transparency prepared.

I have a second three-ring binder in which I keep the directions for each game. As we learn a new game, I copy the directions, either out of the T.E. or from the student page. If there are record sheets for the game I place those in the binder along with the directions. This is a quick reference for a substitute or a tutor when I need them to play a math game.

This is a great idea. Maybe this next year as I go along, I will manage to copy and put into a binder. Thank you Smile

I don't use a 3 ring binder, but I do use hanging file folders. In it I keep a manilla folder for everything for the teaching of each lesson. For example, everything for Lesson 8.1 including any papers I have copied, any overheads I have done. That way I have them from year to year. I have a second manilla folder labelled H.L. 8.1 in which I keep the homework to hand out. I choose one color for the entire year for homework. This year it is green and this is so I can easily locate it from all other papers. I usually do all the photocopying for an entire unit (Home Links included) at one shot, so everything is at my fingertips. Then next year, all the overheads are there. I just need to photocopy papers for the students. It was a lot of work at the beginning, but saves so much time now.
