The last few months of the school year are always so busy. Transition meetings, ESY paperwork, progress feels like there is never enough time to get the paperwork done!!!

Here are a few tips to stay on top of it all.


🖤 Set up a paperwork schedule.

Set a designated time of the day and week you will focus on paperwork. I have a task list for each day of the week that I work on during my prep time. For example, reading group data on Fridays, peer tutor grades on Mondays, progress monitoring on Wednesdays and Thursdays, and so on.

🖤 Get a progress monitoring system in place.

Stay on top of progress monitoring by completing monthly student averages every month and just plug the data into your progress report. I use this progress report to keep track of it all.

🖤 Plan for some extra prep time.

If you know you have extra paperwork coming up (like ESY right now) plan a class period that your students can work independently or with a para so you can get it all done. Here are some low-prep seasonal activities that you can use for this! Spring Counting Boom Cards Spring Errorless Sentence Helpers Addition Uno (not seasonal but still fun!)

🖤 Reinforce yourself when you’re all caught up!

Grab an iced coffee or sneak out a few minutes early on a Friday. You deserve it! Paperwork is a necessary part of the job, but it doesn’t have to take over your life! Comment below and let me know which of these tips you're going to try out this year.
