Organizing Your Students' Work for the Week!

Fern Smith's Classroom Ideas organizing your students' work for the week in advance makes a teacher's life easier!
Everything Organized and Ready for the Week
On Friday, or sometimes even Thursday afternoon, I would slip everything into the folders for next week! It usually took less than five minutes to organize everything and I loved it. It was especially handy when there is a problem at my morning duty station and the students and I would all walk into homeroom late. Having everything there and ready to roll, keep our morning routine on track!
