Like the use all parts of a bulky file cabinet. Paint it, scrapbook the drawers, make the side magnetic bulletin board and use the back for hanging storage! Smart use of space.

DIY Bulletin Board Idea - Displaying Student Work - My hat goes off to Learning in Wonderland for creating this magnificent bulletin board to display student work!

Divide the inside of a file folder into boxes that are slightly larger than small sticky notes. Write students' names in the boxes in alphabetical order, one name per box.

Periodically move the sticky notes to students' assessment folders. You'll have valuable information at your fingertips when it's time to prepare report cards.
