Binder Organization

Third Grade Binder Set-up

Third grade is often the first-time children use a binder in school. This is a great time for students to learn and build upon organizational skills.

The first item in your child’s binder should be the MSJE Student Planner. Students will be copying their assignments down in the appropriate box each day. 

To help your child get organized, please label the pocket dividers in the binder according to the directions and order below:

1.    HOMEWORK: This should be where homework is kept and easy to find.  

2.    LANGUAGE ARTS: This section will include language arts and spelling resources.

3.    MATH: This section will include math facts to practice daily.

4.    SOCIAL STUDIES AND SCIENCE

5.    WRITING/OTHER

*When reviewing the contents of the binder, or helping your child maintain the organization of the binder, please be mindful of doing this together. Your child should know what is needed in class, and what can be kept at home. Thank you for your support!
