Less Stressful Notebook Collecting

Today I have a simple management tip for looking at student journals or notebooks. It can be really overwhelming to have a stack of 20 or more notebooks on your desk needing your attention, but this method makes it a little easier.

Each day I ask for a different group to leave their journals out or bring them to me. By the end of the week, I've had a chance to look through all of them without feeling so stressed out!

There are lots more more bright ideas just waiting for you at the posts below. Happy hopping!


  1. I just began teaching high school after a million years in middle. THANK YOU for a simple tip that will save me so much time and stress! 130 notebooks can easily be whittled down this way!

  2. I have a sticker obsession and this could help me get rid of some! Great idea!!!
