Brilliant idea!!!!!! 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.
Having a more organized classroom will open up the learning environment. This will create more space and more room for activities and create a space for students to be able to get involved in the lesson and interact with each other
