This 45 Page School Binder works perfectly for late elementary school, middle school and even high school students.
It’s about that time! The kiddos are thinking school supplies, lockers and notebooks-or is that us? The moms who are eagerly waiting for routines again!
This binder will grow with your family through the years. To top it off, you only need ONE binder for the entire family. So if you have four kids, print off four sets and you are ready for a great start to the new school year! Let’s get it kicked off with a bang here!
🏫 How it Works
If you are new to downloading binders, no worries! You will download the binder set and save it to your computer. Then, you can print off all of the sheets and put them in a binder or you can simply print off the sheets that your kiddo needs right now. They can keep it with them or you can keep it at home.
If you need more sheets, simply them print off. It is yours and you can print a million times, if you want – all for personal use, of course. We ask that you don’t distribute them to friends and family.
If you haven’t made a binder set before, you will need the following items:
- Three Ring Binder
- Protective Sleeves
- Laminator (optional)
- Page Dividers
That’s it. For just a few bucks, you can put together a professional binder set for your kiddos to kick off the new school year.
🍎 What is Included
Three Cover Sheets – They have different quotes to inspire your student to reach for the stars in their academics. Sometimes, it can be the little reminders that make all the difference.
Class Schedule – This list needs to be printed off for both you and your student. It can be hard to track the classes. This will help you identify schedule conflicts.
Teacher Contacts – This provides everything you need in case you need to reach out to your child’s teacher. By late elementary school, kids may have 3-8 teachers each and it’s hard to keep track of it all, especially when you have multiple children.
Assignment Schedule – Print this out regularly as you and your child track assignments. There are so many studies to justify writing down the assignment requirements so they don’t forget.
Everyone wants to get out of school but it is so important to not forget what needs to be done at home. Writing down the assignments is a good way to help your students remember those critical tasks.
This is also a great first step to help your child learn academic organization skills that will help them all the way through college.
Assignment Planner – Large assignments that require more thought and time need to be planned out in advance. This is used as a project planner for late elementary when they are starting to be assigned bigger projects to high school where the expectation is getting greater and more thought needs to be given in advance.
Weekly Plan – This creates a road map for your student to pencil out how they see their week going. This is best to do on Sundays, like you would do for your own planner. Model this behavior by having you both do it at the table together. Don’t aim for perfection. Allow them to see it is a journey that sometimes it works out and sometimes, life gets in the way. Next week, do it again.
Daily Plan – This designs what the day will look like for your student. When they know there is play practice from 4-6pm and it isn’t a surprise, they start to have a plan to bring a better snack since they won’t be eating dinner until much later that day. They will also be able to identify when they need to schedule homework.
Grade Tracker – This generates a visual for you and your student to see the grades written out. Yes, the grades are in the computer, but again, if the child has to write it down and look at it in the binder, the grades will tend to have a more upward trend. Keeping it in the computer grade book is easier to gloss over.
Study Schedule – This sets kids up to make a successful study habit for now and the future as well.
Reading Tracker – This printable lays out the benchmarks that are needed to meet successful reading accomplishments by year end. This is one that is geared toward elementary students.
Password Tracker – You think keeping track of passwords is hard for you? It is really rough for students as well. This helps your student keep track of all the online passwords that they need to use on a daily basis. This is geared towards high school students.
Notes – This page is used to write down any thoughts or ideas that you or your child think of and don’t want to forget. It’s an adorable page and saves trying to keep track of hundreds of sticky notes!
Daily Tasks – This page is for high school students who have more going on than just school, reading and homework. This is for them to start tracking their activities, water intake, shopping lists, jobs and anything else that needs to get done.
Important Dates – This printable page is for all the kids to track. Elementary school students will track field days, Fall Festivals and Science Fairs. Middle school students will track larger tests, projects, musicals and sports. High school students will use it for Homecoming, Prom, SAT dates, History Day deadlines and more. Moms will want to track it all.
Monthly Goals – Writing down goals is so important. It allows your kids to start setting goals on a monthly basis with deadlines while realizing that there needs to be actionable steps to get there. Can you map all of that out?
Fitness Goals – The focus shouldn’t be solely on scholastics. Sure, your kids need all the tools to help set them up for academic success, but it is important to have a well-balanced life. This is a great tool for high school students as they start to track their over health and fitness to keep it in check. Hopefully, their health is in the forefront of their minds as they choose between fruit and chips.
Friends Contacts – Generally, the parents will want to keep the contact information of friends, just in case they need to reach the parents in case of emergency. Older kids will probably have phones and won’t log that information into a sheet like this, but you may still want it.
Friends Birthdays – Being a good friend means recognizing their special days. This printable page will help track upcoming birthdays. This also helps the family budget any upcoming gifts and will minimize surprise expenses.
2020-2021 and 2021-2022 School Year Calendars – Allows you to plan ahead and get organized from the start. These calendars have enough room to write down exams, playdates and practices.
