Because I’m still in graduate school, I won’t pretend to know anything about organizing materials for a school based SLP, BUT I do have a pretty good system for myself in school!
Overview: I use one or two binders for all of my classwork. I either put all of them in one binder, or separate for MWF & TTh. This year, I’m putting everything in one binder! (see the picture below)
Then, I also keep a separate clinic binder where I keep data and materials.I ALWAYS have a running to-do list of everything I need to do. I wouldn’t survive without my planner! For the first couple weeks, I have to weirdly carry my schedule around with me as well.
I do have a planner but because I’m obsessed with to-do lists and schedules, I usually use another week at a glance form as well.
I’ve created a FREEBIE that I think is adorable to help YOU stay organized as well! It includes everything I use to help stay organized during graduate school (and all of the forms I showed above). While I think it’s perfect for graduate students, I promise that I didn’t forget the rest of you. I made sure to make it perfect for SLPs or anyone looking for some cute, organizational pages.
First, I included 5 different binder covers (shown below). They come in 5 fun colors! Use then for your class/clinic binders! Just write in the name of the class in the white space. Feel free to add text on the PDF and print that way too!
I also included inserts for the spine of the binders as well. Again, easy to just write in the name of the class/subject.
Next, I made a fun to-do list to keep track of what needs to get done! I have this one divided up in “School”, “Clinic”, “Personal”, and “Other” categories. BUT, I also included one with blank titles for those of you who would like it divided differently!
Next up is a schedule! Fill in at the beginning of the semester (or whenever your schedule changes) to keep track of when you need to be certain places. I’ll be printing off several of these because my schedule never stays the same for the whole semester…
I’ve also included a week at a glance form. It’s pretty self explanatory! If you can’t see it, the bottom contains a section for important meetings/assignments/tests, and notes as well as a small to-do box.
Last, there is an included poster! This has been one of my favorite quotes to get through graduate school.
What do you think?? Can you tell I love that aqua color? 🙂 I REALLY love how these turned out and I hope you do too!
