Re: [teacherartexchange] Elementary portfolios?

All of my students have their own portfolios, which stay in the artroom
until the end of school. I have done this for 11 years now, and now have
seniors who have 11 years worth of artwork stored safely at home because of
the portfolios. I wouldn't do it any other way.
