Tune into Technology Linky

I have one quick tip for the Tune into Technology Linky this week.  The theme is organizing technology.  A teacher friend of mine gave me this tip two years ago and it has revolutionized my file organization.  Here it is...numbers!  Sounds simple, right?  Here is a quick look of what I mean-

This is a picture of my seventh grade literature file.  I number the books in the order that I teach them.  That may not seem that revolutionary, but imagine inside one of the folders.  That's right.  It is all in order.  From activity 01 all the way to the end of the unit.   Here's a look-

This makes it so easy when coming back to my files the next school year.  I can just look through them in the order that I did them.  WOW!  Notice that I have three files with the number 03.  That is because this was all one lesson.  Sometimes I also make documents in advance and I don't know exactly where they will fall.  In this case I just assign a number that I think will be valid and change it if necessary.  

Thanks for reading.  I hope that this was a helpful organizational tip for your technology! 


  1. Thanks for the great organization tip. Not sure if it's just me, but I can't see your pics- there's a question mark box showing up instead. Thanks for linking up.:)
