To help our students stay organized, we set up a "brain" in their School Life Binder. In addition to their school-issued date book/agenda, we turn four folders inside-out and label them to help the students stay organized. This product includes a .pdf to print 3 sets of labels per one page of Avery 5160 labels.
To use: Collect four inexpensive (no prongs!) folders per student. Fold each inside out. Use a large three-hole punch to punch a set of holes on the opposite side of the folders from where the original holes are. Place one of these labels on each folder. The final "My Personal Stuff" label can go on one of the folders in the student's binder. Place the folders into the prongs of the binder. Scaffold students at first on where their items should go. Be sure to scaffold students in returning the "Goes Home and Stays Home" folders empty each day!
