    I was looking for ways to make my teaching easier and ran across an idea that I am beginning to work on and one that I would like to share. I bought 9-1" binders (one for each month of the school year) and put in enough dividers for how many weeks in each month. Then I put in all of the HF words, books to read, videos to watch, worksheets, activities, songs, poems, samples of art projects, etc. behind each week. (I've been "saving" what I did this year). Everything is there -- lesson plans in a binder! I went one step further and typed up a "brief lesson plan" for each week and put it in at the beginning. In the back of the folder are "extra" worsksheets and activities if needed. If, for some reason, I would be gone a period of time, all of the things I would do would be easily accessible for a substitute and I wouldn't have to worry about rounding everything up. Next year, towards the beginning of each month I plan to "run-off" everything I will need for the month. It will all be there in the "binder"! I do realize that there are those "teachable moments and activities" that wouldn't be in the binder -- but most of what I teach is there.
