A few years ago, there was a Made4Math post on student table folders. I really loved the idea, rushed out to buy folders, and then really didn't follow through with them.
Then, last year, I decided to use my folders for sub days and I really loved the simple organization, so I decided to make an effort to use them this year. I spent a lot of time running around my classroom passing out papers and it was wearing me out. Here's an example of my Table Folders from today:
Each day, I put that days handouts in the folder and return any papers from the previous day. In the photo above, the left pocket holds a handout of notes and yesterday's exit ticket. The right folder holds two problem sets (today was a block day), one problem set was for mid-block, the other problem set was for homework. The cardstock at the top are their name tents until I learn names well. :)
So far, I really love the table folders, although it does put pressure on me to stay organized and on top of the paperwork. :)
