Homework Folders

It's that time of year when the stores are putting out their Back-to-School sales and us penny pinching teachers scoop up the great deals.  Last night I found myself at Wal-Mart gathering my red polyvinyl two pocket folder, otherwise know as my Homework Folders and glue sticks.

I'll be using the same homework folder labels I used last year for the cover, and the two inside pockets.
I'll be placing three plastic sleeves to hold important papers like the alphabet chart, sight words, and sight word activity ideas
I will also use a pencil pouch to hold flash cards. Each trimester our students receive flash cards for sight words, numbers and rhyming.

Kindergarten Homework

This is the folder from Wal-Mart for .50¢
My folders go to and from school each day.  Homework is to be completed nightly and returned the following day.  No homework on Fridays, the folders stay at school for the weekends.

So, tell me about your homework folders...

I just bought the same folders at walmart Sunday! They were also a great price! I am for the first time going to be using a S.T.A.R folder this year! I am very excited! I think the families will really appreciate the organization and communication! Your labels are cute!

Katherine- I've used STAR for 12 years now. In second and third I used Binders, but the folders work well for kindergarten.

Thanks for the great ideas! Does the school communication go in this folder as well?
