Special Education Teacher Binder Editable {Templates, Data Collection & More}

I created this product because I am an Intervention Specialist who likes (tries) to be organized and who likes things to be pretty. This folder contains 2 editable PowerPoints and I also added the main 2 fonts I used to create the documents for your convenience. You can use the fonts to edit your binder and for any other personal and classroom use.  Click on the picture for the link to the item in my store!


medium-1350462-3 medium-1350462-4 medium-1350462-2

One portrait PowerPoint (46 pages) that contains 10 binder divider pages including 2 cover pages, IEPs, 504 Plans, Condensed IEPs, Behavior Plans, Student Data, Calendars, Parent Communication Log, and Lesson Plans. There are also templates to use in each of those sections of your binders. Additionally, there are 6 editable binder divider pages in this PowerPoint, and 3 pages of inspirational quotes.

One landscape PowerPoint (47 pages) that contains 12 calendar templates (for each month) and additional templates to use in each of the divider sections. There are also 6 pages of landscape editable binder divider pages.

A main component of this file are the progress monitoring forms (49 total) that are in both slideshows. These forms are for tracking progress various skills for students K-5. All the pages are editable in the slideshows by adding textboxes wherever you’d like to add text. I have already added textboxes on the editable binder divider pages, but not on the other templates. If you want the text you add to match the binder divider pages, download and install CKRounded and CKPurple, which are both included in the file. I created most of the progress monitoring forms to be printed and written on, which is how I use them when I assess students. For other templates, such as the behavior plan template, etc. you can add textboxes to edit the documents. If you’d like the fonts to match, download CKFonts (sets 1-5) available for free in my store for personal and classroom use, and match them to the document you are editing.

I hope you love this file and that it helps you keep things organized and pretty! 😉 If you need any help, email me at If you like it, I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your feedback and follows.

Have a great school year!

With special education teacher love,
Courtney Keimer

This is my first day at home with my beautiful new baby girl and my amazing 2 year old little boy.  They both fell asleep at exactly 1:50 and I feel like Superwoman.  Praise the Lord!

A School Time Rap and a Fresh Facebook Page!

I recently created a Facebook page to share teaching resources and ideas.  It will follow a similar format with links to new products and freebies in my store as well as teaching ideas and sprinkled with love.  It is called “Some Divine Intervention” (clever, eh?) and here is the link if you’d like to check it out!


I would love you to like it and I really appreciate your comments!

And I also wanted to share this music rap video created by a group of students from the elementary school I teach at (with help from some parents and a teacher!)  It is so cool.

School Time Promo Video

I just love it.

“If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”
