What I'm about to share with you will revolutionize your classroom, and maybe your life. It. Is. That. Amazing.
It is also simple. A perfect, "Why didn't I think of that?" moment!
Each kiddo in my classroom now has their own specific turn in tray. They are labeled with their classroom number and are in ABC order. On top of their trays is a plastic file holder containing their mailboxes, where they pick up their graded papers and mail each morning.
My assignment sorter labels who is missing which assignments using a clipboard and keeps that on a shelf as well so that my forgetful leaders know when they need to complete something missing.
Also, now when my assignment sorters gather the papers at the end of the day, they are ALREADY IN ALPHABETICAL ORDER AND READY FOR THE GRADEBOOK!! HALLELUJAH!
This system has seriously changed my life. Why waste an organizer like this on mailboxes when you can use it to help organize your assignments and get a clear visual of who is missing what? I couldn't wait to share this with you all, and I hope you find it useful in your classroom!
