Homework Folders / Take Home Folders

Homework Folders/Take Home Folders (whatever your school calls them) can be a real beat down if you are not organized.  Here is what works for me!
1.  Buy a class set of folders (plus a few extras) that are all the SAME color during the Back to School sales.  If they are super cheap, I'll buy 3 or 4 sets incase I need to replace them after Christmas break/Spring break.
2.  Spend a few cents extra and get the VINYL folders because they will last longer.  
3.  Stick these {FREE} labels in your students' take home / homework folders so there is no confusion on which papers should be returned to school and which papers should be kept at home! 
The left side of the folder is "Return to School"...Things like HOMEWORK pages, field trip forms, forms from the front office, papers that need to be signed, etc.
The right side of the folder is "Keep at Home" {Take it RIGHT home. Haha} This includes graded work, brochures, newsletters, etc.

This system worked with my Kindergarten students! Easy breezy! 

**Print these FREE labels on Avery5162 Labels**
Actual size is 1 1/3" by 4"
I always choose GREEN folders because green means in GO HOME!  :)

  1. I love these! I made my labels the other night when I was just trying to get stuff done and I don't love them so I'm redoing them today! Do you have any labels that you could share for the front of the folders too?!
