When you have 8 kids with a comhined total of 97 g0als-it is hard to keep track of it all! I created these flipbooks to help both of my assistants as well as myself remember all of the goals! This comes in handy in many ways. For example, if my TA and a student get to inclusuon early and have 5 spare minutes, she can flip to his section to have a quic reference of his goals and work on one! It’s super easy to put together!
I typed each of my student’s goals into small boxes, printed the paper, cut out the boxes and glued them to index cards. I glued front and back to the card to save index cards.
First, all of my students are color-coded. I took an index card, split it into 8 section and colored each section to match the student colors.I then cut off a strip of the colored index cards-this will be used to create the tabs.
Cut apart each color to make a tab. Lay a piece of tape down on the table, and place the small square color side down.Take the end of the tape it and fold it over so the colored square is facing up. The square should be covered with tape on both sides now.
Cut the square away from the tape, and trim it down. This will be the tab!
Cut small strips of white index cards. Place the tab colored side down on the table. Place the strip on the back of the tab, and use a small piece of tape to connect the two.
Tape the strip to the back of the index card. I find it helpful to line up the cover index card for each student’s section to make sure none of the sections overlap.
To finish up, hole punch all of the cards and put them on a binder ring. At the end, you will have this awesome flipbook! It is so easy to reference goals this way. When I’m working with N., I just flip to the purple tab to see what she is working on. When a new IEP is written, I just have to remove that one section and replace the index cards with new goals-how easy is that?
