I have received many questions on both Instagram and my blog about the homework folders I posted that I was working on. I am here to answer those questions and share with you how I use them! 🙂
I teach 4th grade on a team with one other teacher. We each have our own “homeroom” class. I teach Language Arts and Social Studies to my homeroom and her homeroom, and she teaches Math and Science to both. It works wonderfully!
One of the ways I keep both classes organized is by colors. My classroom colors are mainly turquoise and lime green. So her class is the turquoise class and mine is the lime green. Their book bins coordinate with these class colors, turn in trays, writing trays, notebooks, and finally, homework folders.
I wait until August each year when Office Max has their 1 cent deals on 3 prong folders. Depending on the manager (we all know how that works!) I go each day until I have a class set of blue 3 prong folders, and green 3 prong folders… for each of our groups!
Happy Labor Day!
