Front folders for unfinished work instead of inside desks where sometimes the work disappears into black holes. - or on the sides if they sit at tables!

Front folders for unfinished work instead of inside desks where sometimes the work disappears into black holes. I love this idea because it also eliminates taping name tags onto the desks!

Each student has a folder to turn in homework. At a glance you can see who has and has not turned in their work.

A great way to have students turn in their homework. I don't have enough wall space, so maybe a binder OR hanging file folder? I'd love to just not do homework.I think I'll call students to line up for recess as I pull out their homework :)

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. Whenever you want to make a note about a student's progress, jot the information on a sticky note and then place it in the appropriate 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.
