I have a whole system set up for students to pick up the work that they miss when they're absent. This is not what im talking anout here. Toward the end of the year, I was no longer able to assign homework from the textbook, so I had to assign worksheets. The thing about worksheets is that about one third of them mysteriously disappear once students walk out the door. So I had to make extras. Lots of extras.
The other thing about worksheets is that students will ask for the ones that their missing at the worst times. (Like immediately after I've filed them because it seemed that no one else needed them.) This was my solution.
these? I found some at Wal-Mart and their price range was $9.99 and up, and had more pockets than I needed, so I decided to make my own.
This is what I came up with.
The only drawback is that once papers are inserted into the folders, they will cover the labels. That's okay, though. I think by high school kids understand the sequence of the days of the week.
The only thing I would actually change is that I set the digital paper to 50% transparency. I should have left it at 100% because now the colors look washed out. But oh well. I wasn't about to waste supplies.
Want to make your own? Download your very own labels here. (The transparency is set to 100% for bright, vibrant colors.)
