Organizing Your Binder
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     You are looking through your notebook for the handout your teacher is referring to. She gave it out in class yesterday and told everyone not to lose it. Guess what? Yep, you lost it. You could swear you stuck it in with your science notes. But it's not there. You look in the front pocket. You look in the back pocket. It must have fallen out. Desperately, you look on with the boy next to you. Luckily, he was able to find his handout. Your teacher notices and gives you "the look."
 
2     Does this sound familiar? You need to get organized! But where do you start? First, take everything out of your binder. Now, divide it all into piles. Make a pile for each subject. Next, get out the dividers that came with your binder. If you can't find them, get some new ones.
 
3     Write the name of each subject on a divider sheet. It will help even more if you write the subject on one of those small pieces of cardboard and slip it into the colored tab on the divider. This way, you can easily find each subject in your notebook.
