I have been a Bible School teacher since I was a teenager (12 years old). I began as an assistant and ended as the Coordinator of my Bible School in my country of Honduras. One thing I really used to love to do for the teachers was to organize their Year binder, so they can feel organized during the year of our Bible School.
That’s why today I am sharing with you how you can do it for your volunteer teachers or make it as a Teacher training Activity so everyone can make it unique! I assure you they will have fun and you will discover everyone’s hidden creativity!
What you will need:
- scrap paper or wrapping paper
- some scissors
- glue, stickers, any kind of embellishments
- hole punch
- and all the material or information that will be inside the binder
I like to personalize it, so I can feel inspired every time I open it.
I love to add little details such as: cute note pads, post-its, and stickers for my kids. Everything little! I like to write little notes or reminders to the kids or my teacher friends.
Then I set up my year in a very cute way. I like to make a Year cover page with an annual calendar so I can have my whole year in a glance and write important events.
After my year calendar, I like to organize my month: with a calendar, my schedule, lessons plan themes, and other things that came up with the Month teachings in my church.
I like to organize the lessons in the whole month! I keep here all the lessons I will teach and the kids booklets or activity pages.
Then I have my planning section, I like to set up every day, so I can not feel lost in my class. I know it is just one hour ( in my case) but I want that hour to be nice and clear for me and the kids. In every class I like to know what activities to make, crafts ideas, how my bible verse will look, and things that I can’t forget for the kids, like attendance, snack, or anything important.
Always in my planner I prepare a section for “Prayers”. It can be a simple envelope or a page, I like to have both. I use the pocket for my kid’s prayer requests and one personal so I can write the name of my kids who were in my class that day and the ones who weren’t.
At the end of my planner, I have a Tracker so I can see how well I did it, and how I can improve. And extra space for training during the year.
For some bible school teachers, this can be a little complicated, but I guess when you love what you do, you try ways to make it look great and you can feel awesome doing it.
I hope you like these ideas and let me know what you think.
