Tried It Tuesday: Sign In Folder
Today I am linking up with Holly from Fourth Grade Flippers for Tried It Tuesday to show off my Teacher Sign In Folder! Now I didn't necessarily try this today but I did try it at one point and I realized I COULD NOT live without it and thought other teachers might feel the same!
Does anyone else have a million little sticky notes of user names and passwords or a journal full of them? Well I did and I couldn't handle it anymore! The OCD in me said it had to be organized now (colorful wouldn't hurt either). I stapled a few sheets of notebook paper into a file folder on the right side and on the left I put rows of blank address labels. On the paper I wrote down all my school and county user names and passwords and the address labels are all the different logins for the websites that I have signed up for. I use this file folder at least 4-5 times a week for all the different websites we have to visit for this or that. I keep this next to my computer at all times and I know many of you may be thinking, "That's an awful idea!? Anyone could get into your accounts!" Well none of the accounts I write down are the "biggies." I don't write down any user names or passwords that would put me at risk in anyway.
You can't see it here because I took them out, but I will also store my student's passwords for online programs on a sheet of paper and just slip it into this folder. It's beyond beneficial to have this at the tip of my fingers whenever I need it! Quite simple to make as well! All you need is a file folder, address labels, notebook paper and a stapler. You could even tweak it and just do two side of address labels!
