Much like the rest of humankind, I LOVE Target. I cannot go in that place without spending $100. The sad part is I load up from the dollar bin--my hubby thinks I am certifiable but I can't resist! So, today I loaded up on these fabulous little accordian file folders:
These are miniature and perfect for flashcards among other things. My "among other things" will include: punchcards (so students can easily keep up with them) and "Blue Jay Bills" (our school positive behavior incentive money that students can spend in a store). I am loving this idea!!
Check it out-- I put labels on each tab: Need to Practice, Sight Words (2 tabs), Math Facts, Blue Jay Bills, and Punchcards. The first tab can be used for specific sight words or math facts that need to be practiced. So if we are studying certain words they will be in this tab to practice at home. After the student has mastered their cards they will get a new set to go in that tab and the cards that have been mastered will go back under the sight words tabs. Same with Math Facts. Blue Jay Bills can be kept in their tab until spent and the Punchcards will be brought out daily for punches.
I cannot wait to use these and they are perfect for going back and forth from home to school! Parents will know what should be practiced and will be able to see how many punches their child has received on their card! Plus these can be used year after year. I just wrote numbers on them to assign to students!
So, if you would like to create these it is super easy and not too time consuming. To save you time I have labels here.
Have fun creating!
