Treat Binder- Student and Parent organizational binder

Hello Friends!!!! I have finally gotten around to finishing up my T.R.E.A.T. binder for the 2015-2016 school year. Although it may seem early, we start school back on the 27th for teachers. It is coming quickly! I do not have names of my students yet, so that is the last piece of the puzzle (that and lunch and specials times).

So my TREAT binders are organizational binders (or folders) for my students and parents to stay organized and involved in the classroom. It is the one ESSENTIAL item I have to buy and set up for my classroom each year. I searched TPT for a sweets themed packed and never found exactly what I was looking for so TADA! I created something that works for me :) I realize what works for me, doesn't always work for everyone, so I included editable pages in a powerpoint for people who need them.

I included three different covers, chevron, polka dots, and stripes (my favorite).


I always choose to use the stripes as my cover because I just LOVE it! Normally, I am a polka dots girl but there is something that I like about those neat lines :) I go to SAMs and purchase three bundles of 1/2 inch binders to use as my organizational binders.


Then I visit Wal-Mart and get zipper pouches for money, notes and other "Stuff". If you notice, I don't put the "left at home" and "right back to school" stickers in there. My main reason is that neither child nor parent follows this. Also why would I look in the back of the binder for notes from parents, I don't. This way I have the kids put their papers to go home in the back, and important notes from the school in the front.


Next, I head to the Dollar tree for lovely bordered papers. I will run out of these after this year, so I will have to make them myself of find something different. On this paper, I put my information (email, phone, grade), the kids specials schedule by nine weeks, and our lunch time!


I add two clear page protectors with the pages "What is a TREAT binder?" and "Sweet Behavior". These describe our behavior system and how the TREAT binder works. I included both of those in the pack and there are editable pages as well.


On the back of the second page protector, I put the Sweet Behavior reference page. That way when the parents see what color star I put on their behavior chart, they know how the student behaved that day. In the two pocket divider I have the behavior calendar in the front. I have included the 2015-2016 calendars and editable calendars as well, in the packet. These will be updated every year on TPT!


On the last pocket of the divider I have our Reading Log. This is included in the packet as well!


If you are interested in purchasing the packet you can find it here!

Here's to an amazing 2015 -2016 school year!
