The front sleeve is where I keep my Sunday Music Schedule, a visual reminder to actually fill it out each week!
In the front, I keep the weekly singing schedules and a copy of the current program for reference.
Tab #1: Sheet Music
For all of the loose-leaf songs that I collect. I always hole punch them so that the pages face each other, then I don't have to turn pages back and forth.
Tab #2: Song Lists
Do you keep track of the songs your primary knows? This list was so valuable to me when I was called as chorister, and I keep updating it as we learn more songs. It's a great way to keep track of how long it's been since you've sung certain songs, so you remember to keep things fresh.
Tab #3: Directories
First is the class list, with teachers, children, and classroom numbers. Behind that is the directory for our primary workers, so I have their phone numbers and email addresses handy. Behind that is a ward list. You just never know when you'll need it!
Tab #4: Primary Program
Here is where I keep a running list of the songs I'd like to have prepared for the program. This way I can tweak things as the year goes on without doing a lot of searching (or remembering). I also keep the program script here so I can follow along during the actual program.
Tab #5: Schedule. Ours changes sometimes, so I keep the current one here so I know where I need to be and when.
Tab #6: Ideas
I write things down as I hear about them, read about them, or see them in other wards. When I need to refer back, they're all together and not just stuck in piles on my desk.
Tab #7: Meetings
For agendas, presidency meeting notes, and notes from training meetings.
Tab #8: Teaching Tools
This is where I keep all of my oft-used visual aids. Follow the Prophet, Do As I'm Doing, color sticks, Fun Ways to Sing...they're all in there plus more. I don't have to remember to bring them, and they're there when I'm in a pinch with 5 minutes left in singing time. Nothing like being prepared!
So that's that! Pretty simple!
