To prevent unfinished work from being lost, have them stick in their front folder. When they have finished something else, recess, or at the end of the day, they can look in their front folder for unfinished work.
Love this! File crate with each student's name on it. File work for them to do when they are "done" that is differentiated. you can also put work in there that they need extra practice with. I'm thinking big YES!! :)
Keeping Track of Anchor Charts: Take a picture, print it and file it in a binder before taking the poster off the wall. Teacher and students can refer to the binder even if the anchor chart isn't on the wall. Brilliant.
