I'm in a middle school, so classes change every 45 minutes.
*Detailed lesson plans
*Map of the school
*Instructions for Emergency Lockdowns, Fire and Tornado Emergencies
and Crisis Evacuation plans
*Daily schedule (times of each class, lunch, etc.)
*Instructions on who to contact for behavior issues, etc (names and
*Information on who needs to go to the office for medications and when
If I have a good educational article I may leave that. I have 2 paraprofessionals that are in and out of my room throughout the day, so I also leave their schedules and a note explaining that they can probably answer any questions.
I place all necessary books, worksheets, etc. with post-it notes identifying which class, etc. it is for, on my desk with the sub folder on top.
