Moose Notebooks

I saw several remarks about the Moose Notebooks. I read about them on the teachingheart website and saw a cute frog one to go along with my theme. I was wondering though if anyone has used them before and could explain how they incorporated them in their classroom? Do you use them everyday? What kind of headings do you use for each section? Thanks!

I love my notebooks. I call them STAR Notebooks (Students Taking Academic Responsibility), but same thing.
I buy the thirty cent three ring binders at Walmart when the school supplies come out. On the very inside pocket, I have students put papers to take home and keep home (notes from the office, newsletters, graded papers). Then I have their assignment book that they fill out daily with their assignments. After that, I have a two-pocket folder (these fall apart very quickly so for next year I invested in some sturdy ones). One side is for homework to finish and the other is for finished homework. Then I have a calendar section with clear sleeves to hold my schedule, the school calendar, lunch menu, etc. Then I have paper for notes to/from parents (although I am not doing this section this year because I have found it easier to jot notes in the assignment books that are being checked every day. Lastly, I have my Reading Renaissance section for AR related materials (zones, reading logs, folder in back for TOPS reports).
Parents love it! I love it to keep my students organized. There are always the few that even when they are told where to put a paper specifically, shove them in their desk anyway =), but for the most part it helps. I tell me students that there should never be a stray paper in their desks because there is a place for every one of them.

The binders are a great way to teach...

responsibility. I send the binders home each night, and my students bring them back each day. My assistant checks them in the morning to make sure homework is complete, and to see if there are any parent notes. Parents love them.

Here is my website - click on the tab labeled frog binders to see how I organize it.

I hope that helps!

Dear Indiana Teacher,
Thank you too for your post and website! It is great and I love the frogs too. I read about your binders, but still have some questions. Do you have everything seperated with folders or pockets? Do you put weekly spelling words or word wall word lists in it? I guess I am just trying to picture it all and need some help. Thanks again for your website.

I was thinking of using these also. I am curious if a one inch binder is big enough to hold an assignment notebook, as well as a couple fo folders. Do students keep these in their desks? I was thinking of asking parents to buy them, but I am concerned I will get all kinds of different binders. I'd love to get the deal that SS finds at Walmart. The cheapest ones I can find are $1.50/2.00.

(Mine are called DOG (Daily Organizationa; Guides) and I found my binders online thru Office Max for $1.31 with the see thru slots on the cover. Mine are 1" and I am starting to use them with 3rd graders this year. I also found poly folders for $2.01 at Sams. There are 60 in a box and I punch 3 holes in them to go in the binder.
