For all of you using chart folders.......

Teacher Tipster's idea ( Thank you, T. Tipster, love your ideas)--

PT teachers, what kind of papers/charts have you added to your folders?

I have found myself formulating ideas as the year goes on, so I thought I'd start a thread for all to as a resource. With all of your
beneficial and creative ideas, it should keep busy little hands and minds occupied in a positive way without using tons of paper for short periods of time. I like to revolve some items. Some are standard and stay all of the time...hundreds chart, writing lines
(T.Tipster)

I just added:
1)word families
2)a sheet from "What Do I Do When I'm Done"
Individ. balloon letters--make these letters into "things" that begin with the above letters.
3) Bucket Filler slips in back cover pocket ready to put into
other students' buckets -
4) Missing numbers in a series
5) A board with squares...eg. Seven squares on one page--Students
either place one Unifix cube or an "X" on one square thus making 1+6=7 (Options--ways to make 5, 6, 8, .....)
This one happens to be different ways to make the sum of seven.

When an adult comes into the room to speak to me in the middle of a lesson, the students often take these out for their "vacations."
It also gives the Bucket Fillers a time to recall a good deed and begin to get it down on paper.


I hope that this will give someone a few ideas for the beginning of the year --they are working for me at this time.

I can't wait to hear others' ideas!

How many chart folders are in the room? Would I be correct to think that you don't need one for every child? Or do You? Thanks

one for each child, that way if I want to customize it or have them practice writing their name, birthday, address, etc., it can be done easily.

not put it on my list either, but I sprung for them at Walmart.
They were only $.94 and so worth it....but I did not spend much at all
except for these this summer.

Alternatives? You could get the poly binders (flexible ones). Sometimes they cost less. If you use folders with prongs, it might be tough for the kids to write on them.

BUT

You could put the boards into a folder that has pockets IF they fit in the pockets...

Maybe I'm not thinking out of the box right now and someone else has used something else or has a better idea...will post again if I think of something.

Folders

I use "Keep Here" folders in my class. They are just three prong pocket folders. Any work that is unfinished goes in the pockets. After reading about the charts, I'm going to put handwriting practice sheets, etc. in sheet protectors and secure them in the folders using the prongs. I really like this idea for the early finishers who never have anything to work on in their Keep Here folders! I'm excited to see any more ideas for chart work.

I was just in our local Wal-Mart and they had 3 ring binders on their clearance stuff. They were under $1 for sure.

I got the poly binders at walmart this summer when they were 60cents. I store them in two crates using hanging file folders. I have one for each child.. I have the first grader helper sheets I have found on here or blogs, I went on a handwriting site and printed out the alphabet for them to practice- upper and lower, then I typed out their first and last names and the name of the school, my name and hello and first just for practice...
I have the one breath sheet that teacher tipster just posted about.. I have a digraph sheet and then short vowel and long vowel sheets.. my only thing is they are not right there with them because they are at tables and I dont have room on the table for them... I am talking my mom into making seat pockets
thats all I have for now!

I used two poclet folders with prongs and they worked great. The principal walked in and saw them being used and loved them!!!

I keep handwriting sheets, math facts, sight words, etc. I am looking to find more ideas this summer for them.
