I am linking up with Holly again this week for her Tried it Tuesday linky!
I am going to highligth two things I started using a few years ago when I was moved to a grade 2/3 class and have carried on in my grade 3/4 class.
The first is a Teacher's Love Notes binder. Now, you may be one of those teachers that treasures each and every picture and note that is given to you by a student and you may display them and have boxes out home full of them. I am not that teacher. I love getting the notes and pictures and exclaim my delight - but I never know what to do with them or how long to keep them. Then while surfing the Net I found this.
I looked all over the web and could not find this file. So I made one of my own for you just in case you want to try it. Click on the picture to get a free copy.
The second thing I tried was using these awesome freebie printables from Mrs. Gilchrist's Class. Before when a student was absent for an extended time (vacations to warm tropical islands!!!) I did not have a great system for keeping their missed work and papers organized. I made folders from her freebies and this is how they look.
