Today I wanted to talk about all those loose worksheets that seem to accumulate over time. I believe that there's no point in sending each page home as they are done because they get lost, and parents get a bit overwhelmed with all the little pieces of paper that come their way.
I still store them in little cardboard boxes. The ones that the notebooks come in are perfect for this. Below is a photo of my filing system. I know it's not perfectly pretty, but it works great. I'd like to offer up my filing covers as a freebie! Feel free to grab copies of my filing system photos.
In this photo you can see the folders and the worksheet in the box in front. Once in a while, when the papers pile up we do a class sort. I pass out all the folders in one box and the kids put them on their desks. Then I start passing out the papers and the kids take them and put them on their desks too. It takes 5 minutes to do a box. I don't do all the boxes at once, but I do 2 or 3 at once.
