Being an education major and future educator, I just love getting to review new office supplies. I was actually in need of a new ring binder to use for my lesson plans for student teaching. You see, I have my mentors approve my lesson plans by email. However, I have a supervisor from my college who visits to observe and evaluate me. They want to see lesson plans and other items which I need to keep together neatly.
So, I was very happy to be selected to review the Avery Heavy Duty Ring Reference Binder. It is a white, 1.5 inch three-ring binder. I love that it has a cover on the front which allows you to insert your own cover page. I think it looks much more professional with it. I also like that it has that easy-press button to open the rings. This seems much safer to me. Overall, it’s a very nice binder.
I was also considering adding some binder labels to my notebook. Thankfully, I received a package of the Avery Custom Binder Spine Inserts. As I mentioned above, the binder features a clear, plastic cover over the binder which allows you to insert a title page. Well, the plastic is also on the side which allows you to place a spine label. This pack’s labels fit perfectly in that space. You can print them on the paper. However, I just went with the quickest option – markers. Doesn’t it look pretty?
No binder is complete without some binder tabs. So, Shoplet also sent me some Avery Note Tabs. These are not tab dividers. Rather, they stick to a piece of paper and allow you to mark a spot in the binder. So, I could use mine to mark the day in my binder. This would make it easier for my supervisor to follow along when observing. The tabs are also clear so that you can read text through them! How awesome is that! That means I can actually place one on that particular lesson plan and my professor can still read it!
Once again, Shoplet has provided me with some wonderful office products. They seem to know what I need before I do. Plus, the options are always great.
Disclosure: I received the binder, spine inserts, and note tabs for free from Shoplet. No compensation was received. The opinions expressed are my own.
