poetry folder vs. notebook

Can anyone tell me why they choose to have the students cut and paste weekly poems into a notebook rather than just use a folder and hole punch each poem to be added? I'm trying to decide if I should use a folder or a notebook. Silly question I know. Did anyone try both ways and have any insight?

I've done both, and the cut and paste works for me. The folder was difficult for them to manage and time-consuming. With the notebooks, I also would have the kids write responses, make connections, write favorite words in the poem, etc. (not for every poem, but many) They would use the page on the left to illustrate the poem, visualizing. When I type the poem up, I can usually get four on a page, depending on poem length, and I use the paper cutter to cut them, so that really all the kids have to do is glue-much faster and no trash.

I use folders with the prongs. At the beginning of the year I put those clear page protectors in each child's poetry folder. Then each time they have a new poem that's ready to go into the folder, I place it into the sleeve. Some first graders can do this themselves, but it's a little difficult. I don't mind spending the time doing it for them, though. It becomes their favorite thing to read and is very durable. They read them each day during reading workshop, hey bring them home often to reread poems and bring them home at the end of the year.

I used notebooks with the prongs for a long time....but last year I bought them 3 ring binders. It was so much easier for them to put the poem in. I like for them to have it typed and they illustrate. That way at the end of the year they have a very nice book of poems that they can take home and read to their family!

The last few years I have used folders for my kids to store their poems in. Most had trouble getting them in easily, they often wrinkled the pages, and many of the folders were a mess by the end of the year. This year I'm going to try binders. I also am going to have them keep the binders in their book bins or another separate container, instead of in their desk.

the black and white compostion books. Paste on the left and illustrate on the right. This book holds up and the kids love to read it and are so proud to take it home at the end of the year.

I've always used folders with the prongs. After modeling a few times, the only reminder the class usually needs is to put the paper back side up when adding it to the folder.

3 ring binders

For those who use the 3-ring binders, how do you keep the pages from ripping out? I tried them one year and no matter how much we modeled, so many turns of the pages and they were ripping those holes faster then I could patch them! I have also tried the page protectors and I was the one putting poems in and then we couldn't go back to highlight a word or blend or whatever if the teaching moment came up later. What I have found is if you reinforce a skill say on poem #10, they often go back on their own and find it in other poems and want to highlight or circle it. I think I will try the marbled composition books this year for poems.

I'm gonna do the composition book as well. I use a binder for my BEE book and have a hard enough time keeping their behavior chart and other information in there because the holes rip.I like what one of the previous posters said (sorry can't see who) about gluing the poems on the left and letting them illustrate on the right. Awesome idea, thanks!

My plan is to use a computer generated page in a 3 prong folder. I don't have a copy because I got the idea from my daughter's teacher last year. Anyway the top is blank to glue/staple the poem. Beneath that there are some lines for a response. I liked this because/ It reminds me of/ ... I will have a poster of response starters hanging and a copy in the front of their book to refer to. There is also a smiley scale for a rating. On the left page they can illustrate. I am adding a table of contents for them to fill in as we go along. I will add some lined paper in the back for any writing or activity that we may do. Maybe they could add poems that they find back there. I teach second.

I've always used a three prong plastic folder and computer printed copies that the kids illustrated. We would also look for various things in the poems such as short vowel words, etc.

However, this year I'm going to change to the marbled composition books. I'll still computer print the copy and let them paste it on the left side. That will leave the right side to:
  • illustrate
  • look for phonics patterns
  • look for vowel sounds
  • write a response or mental image, etc.

What are you going to title your poetry book and put on the front cover? I'm going to print out a cover and place on the front of the composition books. I'd like something neat and interesting.
