As most of you know, I teach two different grades. I need a way to keep all my papers organized and I think I finally found the way!
I found this Rubbermaid organizer on clearance at Staples, but it was the only one they had. An associate looked in the system and none of the other local stores had any. So I hunted on eBay and found another one (LOVE that place!!).
I wanted to decorate the front, so I created a sign to fit across the front. The front is about 13.5 inches, so I had to print two pieces of paper and glue them together. I didn't want a create in the top layer, so I have to make it 10.5 inches to leave room around the edge where the ink wouldn't print.
I glued the label on to the pattern paper and then cut out the dip on top.
I laminated it and then used double sided tape to adhere it to the organizer.
Inside the colored folders are classwork papers and homework.
I put the student's papers in horizontal (since there are more of them) and the answer key behind the papers going vertical. This helps to separate the papers within the folder.
Behind the colored folder is a manila folder that holds my unit tests.
