This student teaching binder is everything you need whether you are a student teacher or a mentor teacher!
The student teacher binder is my absolute favorite product in my Teachers Pay Teachers store! I created it fresh out of college, just after I finished an entire year of student teaching. Yep, you read that right… an entire YEAR! But more about that later!
Student teaching was such a great experience, thanks to my mentor teacher, and now I can say I’ve also had the privilege of sharing my own classroom with an amazing student teacher.
Throughout both experiences, I learned that organization and communication are essential to a productive student teaching experience.
This binder was created with both the mentor teacher and student teacher in mind. It is completely editable and allows you to customize each page to fit your needs. It is divided into six easy to use sections to help you stay organized and on top of everything!
Keeping all of the things in one place will help your student teaching experience be as smooth as possible.
One of the things I love most about this binder is its’ versatility! You can gift it to your student teacher, or you can create your own binder to bring with you on your first day! Your mentor teacher will be SO impressed!
Now.. here’s a peek inside the binder!
Editable Student Teaching Binder
1. Classroom Information
Every school is SO different and has their own sets of procedures and policies. It is important that both the mentor teacher and student teacher are on the same page! This leads to consistency and success for the students! Dedicating a space to keep all of this information means it is right at your fingertips when you need it!
2. Classroom Schedule
Schedules are vital! You want to know what time the bell rings, lunch is served, and when instruction is happening. This will help you understand daily routines and plan for anything out of the ordinary each week.
“This is a great resource to provide a student teacher with. Mine have all loved having it, as it has the important information for them and makes it easy to set expectations from the beginning.”Elizabeth J
3. Lesson Plans
This is a big one! You can add so much information to this section of your binder. Including things like lesson planning resources, online login information, lesson plan templates, and lesson plan due dates. Printing your lesson plans each week and adding them to your binder ensures you can always access them!
4. A Space for Notes
I don’t know about you, but I am a sticky note QUEEN! However… I can never actually find the sticky notes when I need them! This notes section is the perfect place for all of the little things you need to jot down. When you need to find the information – you know just where to find it!
