It’s a busy time of year…science fair, field trips, fifth grade activities…lots of stuff going on! This means lots of papers going home and (in the case of my class, at least) lots of extra papers floating around.
I have mailboxes (aka shoe organizers) for work/forms to be sent home. I usually stuff the extra papers in one slot of the mailbox. But that makes it kind of hard to find certain forms (like those elusive Science Fair papers everyone suddenly needs!).
So I decided to set up a few folders to hold different papers…one for flyers, one for forms to be filled out, one for our extra worksheets, etc.
For each folder/paper holder, I just cut the folder in half. Then I glued the sign on and stapled off the open edge of the cut folder. Tomorrow I will hang them on the wall near our mailboxes.
One more picture, with some papers inside…
I have a Part II coming tomorrow…(nothing too enthralling, but there will be printable files again!!).
The files for these signs are below (I put a few different kids on each sign).
What do you do with all of your extra papers?? I hope this will help keep mine under control!
