Color-Coding Google Docs Folders

November 24, 2013

I swear, I have always loved color-coding. But this year?

I have gotten totally carried away with it!

I have all of my subjects sorted by color…from the signs, to the labels, to my students’ notebooks, and yes…the madness even stretches to my Google Docs for school.
My district signed us all up for district Google accounts this year and it has been wonderful…but a little hard to organize first.

That is, until our lovely Health teacher told me about color-coding the folders! (thank you–even if you don’t ever read this!!)

So here’s how you color-code the folders…in case you didn’t know (like I didn’t, until semi-recently).

Click on the Create button and choose a New Folder:

Select the sad, gray little folder:

Then click Change Color from the More menu:

And that’s it!
And, because I’m completely type-A (but you knew this long ago!) I had to number my folders when naming them, so they would be in order of my schedule for the day. 🙂

It’s a little thing, but it really helps when you are on the fly during the school day and need to find things fast! I hope this helps, if you didn’t know it already!!

Will be back tomorrow to share some new, reusable anchor charts my students and I are using this year…wait ’til you see how UN-type-A I had to be about these charts!! :/

Do you use Google Docs for your classroom documents?
