Great for first year teachers! TONS of great ideas for how to prepare for the first day of school. I have the same folders on a rolling crate for graded papers. At the end of the week a student can hand out the papers to be taken home.
"No More Name Plates. I have done this since my first year teaching! I had a very smart mentor!" Use a colored sharpie "paint" pen. To erase use a dry erase marker and wipe off with tissue. I hope this works!
KETCHUP folder: When students are absent, place a "ketchup folder" on their desk and slide their missed assignments inside the folder throughout the day. Fun and creative way of getting missed work to students who were absent
