Getting Your Students Organized with Themed Binders

I literally had visions of the classroom binder in my head as I slept this morning, so then I was inspired to create a pack of classroom binder sets for several different classroom themes!

I used the PIRATE binder in my room this year and it makes it so much easier to communicate with parents and get students organized with sending their homework, notes, and graded papers to and from school.

Themes included in the pack are:
PIRATE, STAR, PRIDE, CHEF, JUNGLE, DOT, CAMP, HERO, BEE, STRIPE, PAWS, ROCK STAR, SEA, and BEACH! If you have any suggestions, please let me know!

Here is a preview!



Above are just the binder covers. I have MUCH more that will be included to make the classroom binder possible in your classroom including labels and printables for your binder. I haven't quite finished, so I hope to have these done and posted soon with a FREEBIE also!


To the right is a picture of the binder I used a couple of years ago, just so you can get an idea.

The themes will all be bundled together, that way, if you ever change your classroom theme, ALL of the binder printables will be at your fingertips!

What do you guys think? 

Other binder themes? 

If it becomes too many themes in one pack, I may have to make divide it into two sets!

  1. I'd love to see one for a "retro" theme...We're doing a peace, love, & {our mascot} theme school wide this year! I've been trying (not terribly hard) to come up with an acronym, but haven't yet. We did binders last year, and I loved it!

  5. These are way cute. I love the acronyms! Not exactly for students, but if you are trying to organize teacher binders by theme, I just made some binder covers and spine labels for teacher binders.

  6. I loooove your ideas! I've done organizational binders for my students the last few years, I don't know how I taught without them! I do a "beach buddies" theme in my room and last year I called their binders their "Buddy books." I'm really curious to see your BEACH books. Will you sell them individually or just in a pack? Thanks for sharing and inspiring! :)

  17. I used a BEAR book in my special needs PreK class last year and the parents loved it (so did I)! I plan to use a STAR theme next year in my 1st grade class. I just found your website and I love the covers. I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of what you are doing. Thank you for the ideas and for sharing.
