Happy new year! We’re about halfway through the school year, and now is a great time to take a look through your materials and organize messy binders!

Is there is hope for you?

Well, if a stormtrooper can organize a binder, then we know you can!

Still need a little more help? Check out these helpful hints to organize messy binders:

Learning Tools - Organize Messy Binders

1. Use dividers and place them in the order of your class schedule.

2. Designate a place for loose leaf paper.

3. File away loose papers behind the class divider on a daily basis.

4. Personalize your binder, so it is something you can easily use.

5. Purchase a 3-ring plastic pouch to hold other supplies: pencils, pens, erasers, small calculator, self-adhesive hole reinforcements for notebook paper, 3-hole punch designed to fit on binder rings, etc.

Searching for more tools and tips to get organized? Take a look through TFALC’s Learning Resources for Students. And may the force be with you…and your binders.

    As we reach the end of the 2017 school year, many people are gearing up to teach summer school, whether to their own children or in a public or private school system setting. For example, I found your blog post now even though it is nearing the end of the year because I will be teaching summer classes and I’m trying to get organized ahead of time. Great post and lots of tips that will definitely be used!
