I just bought at Sam's Club for about $7, 15 heavy CLEAR file folders. I plan
to put my self directed project handouts for Early Finishers in these. (one
folder for each project) Now I have them in 9X12 brown envelopes. Right now,
the kids look in the brown envelopes and decide which project they will begin.
I have white paper on the cart. They use their own art box supplies or what is
on my cart. It seems like a good idea, so they can see in without opening.
They are required as a classroom rule to begin another project. They cannot
say "What do I do next?" to me. That is a ploy for 1 on 1 attention, just like
"Is this good?"
