This week was parent-teacher conference week.
Most of my families are great and realize that I am, in fact, doing everything I can to help their munchkins succeed.
One family asked for a folder for their son to help him stay organized:
Together, we brainstormed a checklist for his folder and desk to help him stay on task:
I liked the idea so much that I offered it to other parents who mentioned their students were having difficulty staying organized and returning their homework.
So now I have 8 boys in my "folder club". They'll check in with one another at the end of each day to make sure everyone has what they need to complete to be successful.
