Bringing Lessons Used Everyday
Being Incredibly Responsible Daily
are Blue Bird Binders?
Blue Bird Binders are a way of creating organization and
responsibility in students through an organized binder with specific
folders and sheet protectors.
Where do I get one?
In my supply list, I've left specific directions for what
needs to be purchased to put together the binder. All you need to do is bring the supplies to school on the first day and we will assemble them together. However, it
is very simple to put together, and if you'd like to do it in advance, just follow the directions below.
**Please note, I have already purchased binders and sheet protectors for the 2011-2012 school year.**
What are its components?
There are five parts to the Blue Bird Binders.
Take-Home Folder in left front pocket
| The blue folder in the left front pocket is the Take
Home/Bring Back folder. I will supply this to the kids
on the first day of school.
The Take Home side could include mail, homework,
completed work, or notes from Mrs. Gold
The Bring Back
side could include notes for Mrs. Gold or finished
| The zipper pouch is the first thing that you'll see in
the binder when you open it. This is to hold money (real
and classroom cash)
Clear Sheet Protectors
| Clear Sheet Protectors are used to preserve important
information that will be referred to several times such
as rules, calendars, etc...
Folders with Subject Labels
| After the Sheet Protectors come the folders. There are 6
folders, each that you must label with the following
Studies/Science, Reading, Writing, Math, Spelling, and
Work in Progress. Each folder will hold papers for that
Behavior Chart in right back pocket
| In the back right pocket will be the Behavior Chart. The
Behavior Chart is colored in daily and signed by parents
every Friday. I will supply this to the kids on the
first day of school.
What are the
rules to having a
Blue Bird Binder?
1. You must not draw or doodle in your Blue Bird. Treat it with respect.
2. Do not let any of your friends have anything out of
your Blue Bird. It is yours, and no other class does
this. Only ours! So you have a special privilege.
3. Understand the point of having a Blue Bird Binder. The reason is to keep you organized, so keep IT
4. All papers go in your Blue Bird. There should be none
in your desk at any time! My motto is:"Every paper has a home!" Put
papers exactly where I say, when I say! Not later! If you listen to me about organization, you will be
organized, I guarantee! If you don't cooperate, you
won't be organized.
they called Blue Bird Binders?
That's easy! Here
at Village Elementary School, our mascot is Blazer, the Blue Bird! So
we're practicing school spirit while getting organized!
