Another thing off of the to do list. My data binders are ready to go home for the parents and students to enjoy. Sending those home on Monday. I did a pirate theme this school year. I stored these data binder items in a 3 ring notebook for each student since the first day of school. This makes it real easy for the last thing that I want to put in for the year. Then I just took out the pages, used a large ring and taped it shut so that things can't fall out. Here are my pictures of my data binders for this school year. It is such a great collection of "growth" for everyone to enjoy!!
Next up, volunteer gifts and 2nd grade reading helpers/zero the hero friends.

All of our data binder items are found as a free download from our August/September postings from 2011. This summer I plan on tweaking some of my data binder things and sharing those with you. Going to work hard on lots of monthly writing ideas for the 2012-2013 school year to share with you!!
What different things do you put in your data binders?!? Leave us a comment, we would love to hear!
