Classroom Organization: Curriculum Binder Organization


If you have been a reader for any amount of time, you know that I love my binders!! When Indiana decided to adopt the CCSS, I started organizing my math binders to match those standards. There were so many CCSS resources out there, that I had no problem finding organization tools. I even did a post about several resources that could be used.

Before I could get my 6th grade binders done, the state decided not to adopt CCSS and to do our own standards. I would say that 95% of the new Indiana standards are identical to the CCSS, so I was able to use some of the same materials.

Of course, I needed to make all new covers for my binders.


Then I made cover sheets that listed all the standards for each strand.


Then I made tabs for each of the standards.


Behind each of the tabs are the following:

Our district has a wonderful math team and they put a great document together that broke down the standard plus gave 10-15 sample problems.


I would use these problems to create my tests.


I would then usually create a packet that we would work through. 

Sometimes I would use pages from teacher books.


Other times I would make my own packets if I couldn't find exactly what I was looking for. 


Lastly, I would include any pages that could be used for homework.


Each of the sections have way more material than I can ever use, but that means I don't have to hunt for more materials for intervention time.
