Homework Folders

Last week I prepared all of my homework folders for the entire year!  I love this system because it is inexpensive, yet it is durable and useful!  My mom, who taught Kindergarten for over 10 years, taught me about the cheap-folders-cute covers-lamination system.  I made it my own by creating my own {editable} cover and a Homework Helper based on what my first grade students will need this year!  Homework Helpers are especially important for the ESL/ELL students and their parents.  Many ESL/ELL parents use the Homework Helper as an aid and reference when helping their child with homework.  Students also have a copy of the Homework Helper in their desks to refer to during independent work throughout the year.Here’s my folder-making process: This year I am using blue folders.  Click here for link.
