    You guys are all so smart and creative and innovative....I'd love to steal all your stuff! Would any of you be interested in sharing your organizational forms in an online workspace like Office Live or Google Docs? On a site like that, we all could have access to all the documents, which I'm thinking would include stuff like forms for documenting parent contact, seating charts, miscellaneous templates, etc.

    If anyone is interested, I'd be happy to set something like that up.

    I have been planning to add a feature like this to the forum for years. I will check into what is available again and see what it would take to get it running.

    It could be done separately with google docs, but they haven't yet released an API to allow site integration.

    I would love to attend a workshop on googledocs--I have been teaching it to myself because I want to use it full time with my students to collaborate on labs.

    I think that this would be a great resource. We are always talking about docs that we create - I would love to be able to share them with others!

    I'd love to be a part of this as well. I don't know that I have tons of things to share yet. But I would be happy to share as I go along and create more.

    Wow, I am terrible at making templates. I am not much on taking without reciprocating, but can I still join and steal others' stuff?

    I have absolutely nothing to share right now since I'm still in college, but I would love to start my collection. As I enter student teaching, I'm sure I would have something to contribute!

    Wait! I just remembered I made some bingo cards for Dolsch sight words last semester! I could easily make something for all of the lists!

    Okay! I'm excited to see so many people who want to do this!

    I created a folder on Google Docs. In order to have access to it, you'll need to create a free Google account. Once you've created your account, please post your login/email address here or PM it to me so that I can invite you. Keep in mind that your Google email address will be publicly available, so you might want to create one that keeps you anonymous and unidentifiable to the general public.

    Everyone who has posted an email address here or PMed me with one has been sent an invite to view the A to Z folder and the individual documents in it.

    Once you have access to the folder, you should be able to view all the files in it. If you have documents that you'd like to share, upload them and move them to the A to Z folder. This will give everyone else access to the documents.

    To make sure that it all works, I've posted a bunch of random forms that I've acquired over the years; some are my creations, most aren't. Take what you need. :)

    Thanks Cassie--It looks great. I will be adding a ton of forms this afternoon. If I get some time, would you mind if I grouped them into folders. Like have a folder for Lesson Plans, etc. It would n=make searching quicker.

    Anything you have that you think other teachers can use would be excellent.

    I love seeing what others have and use, even if it's not for my subject area or grade level. I know that I often find stuff meant for elementary teachers that seems like it'd work for me with a few modifications.
