Additional Binder Item

Last time I spoke of how to help students stay organized through the use of a binder and folder system. In addition to the items discussed for the binder, I create one extra item over the summer months to give the students at the beginning of the school year. I take a basic sheet protector, usually found in boxes of 50 or 100, and attach a pair of sticky velcro circles between the two plastic sheets. It needs to be at the top and in the center of the sheet. The purpose of this item is for students to keep their foldable or other content frames created in class. The velcro keeps these items from falling out. Many of these items are difficult to punch holes through and store in the notes section of their binder. In addition, keeping them easily accessible within the sheet protector will allow students to use these items as they were intended, as well as keeping them in nice condition. You can have students store this in the front binder, in notes section or in the back of their binder, whichever you prefer.

Here are examples of these supply items you will need to create these for your students.
