Keep 5-10 sheets of blank notebook paper directly behind your handouts and homework in EACH tabbed section You will be ready to write or show your work without having to move paper around!

11 ELA, Math, Science, Social Studies, Elective 1, Elective 2
TABBED DIVIDERS Required order for dividers: ELA, Math, Science, Social Studies, Elective 1, Elective 2 NO LOOSE PAPERS! Hole punch your papers Put them in the rings of your binder immediately Use the proper tab!!

12 TABBED DIVIDERS In each class you may have different guidelines for how to set up that section Most work will be in chronological order with the newest work at the back of the section Be flexible and follow the teachers’ instructions

13 BINDER MAINTENANCE When your binder becomes full, your teacher will direct you on how to remove and store older work Check your binder each evening Did I complete everything that is due for the tomorrow? Can I work ahead on things that are due soon? Are there questions that I still have over what I have learned this week? Are all of my pages in the right place? Do I have the supplies and blank paper that I will need for the next few days?

14 String Backpack Organization
An organized backpack also impacts your ability to be a successful student Key Components: Supplies placed in pouch or baggie Lunch PE clothes (carry shoes separately) A book for DEAR days Your smart device or phone (turned to silent, of course)

Supplies that you don’t need in EVERY CLASS can be kept in your string backpack Organize your supplies base on how often you need them in class Have a pencil pouch or large baggie in your backpack for supplies that are too bulky for your binder pencil bag

Include supplies that might be useful in organizing your binder and agenda! Supplies might include: Map pencils, markers, highlighters Sticky notes Pencil sharpener, ruler, calculator Paper clips, glue stick, tape Earbuds, touch-screen stylus …. and more!!!

17 BACKPACK MAINTENANCE Your backpack should never be over stuffed!
Consider keeping an empty grocery sack in the bottom of your backpack to carry things like dirty PE clothes or other bulky items Check your backpack each evening Do I have the supplies that I will need for the next few days? Is there trash or other items that I can remove?
