Ways for Teachers to Get Organized

94958d8337fd008ef4d3a4306207cf83What’s the secret to a happy classroom? An organized teacher of course! If you are coming back from a winter break, you may find your desk in a horrible mess. So why not take some time out and re-organize it? Here are some Voki tips on how to get started:

  1. Use folders.

Not only folders are useful for students, they are useful for teachers also. If you are the type of teacher who uses a lot of print-outs, worksheets, calendars, etc., you might find it useful if you organize your papers in folders. Have a filing system in place and find a place to store it. Also, you might want to keep an electronic version of it on your computer!

  1. Keep a planner.

Your planner can help you keep track of all your “to-do” lists. You can either keep a planner on your desk or a large desk calendar. Use your planner to remember important dates and notes from meetings.

  1. Have a clean desk.

It is very important to have a clean desk. If you find your desk in a mess, remember to clean it. Not only a clean desk will help you stay organized, it will help you save time from rummaging through the mess to find the papers you need.

Voki Tip: If you use Voki with your students, Voki Classroom helps you manage your students’ Voki assignments.

Until next time,

How to be Organized in School

How to be Organized in School

?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????Imagine that your 10-page paper is lost within a pile of class notes or your lucky pen is probably lost between two textbooks that’s somewhere inside your messy locker. Whether you are a student or a teacher, it is very important to be organized. Whether you are a student or a teacher, it is very important to be organized.

Here are some steps that you can follow to get started!

  1. Get a planner.

Keep a planner. It can help you keep track of all the assignments and tasks that you need to do for the day. If you are a student, it is better to get a large planner (instead of a small one) so you can more space to write. After getting planner, use it! Do not let it sit inside your locker or desk! Write down important dates, assignments, tests, notes, meetings, etc.

  1. Use a folder.

Yes, a folder! Put any papers you need in its subject folder. Do not be lazy and stuff the paper into your bag; you can easily rip that paper or lose it. With a folder, you can find it when you need them. Remember to clean out your folder every month to get rid of papers you no longer need. Having extra paper will make your folder heavy.

  1. Date your papers.

When you take notes, remember to put the date at the top of the paper. So when you need notes from a specific day, you’ll be able to find it. It will save you time from rummaging through the notes.

How do you stay organized in school?
