Homework Folders Frenzy!

We're trying so very hard not to look. One day it's summer sizzle, and the next day back to school fizzle.  
Dear Target,
It is summer. 
We do not go back to school for 45 days. 
Forty five.
Thank you.
P.S. We love you. 
P.S.S. A lot.

And then it happened. 
No, not the part where we went to Target two days in a row.

There was good reason. 
Folders everywhere are arriving on shelves and prices are dropping. Now's the time. 

It's an annual summer job for us and one we actually look forward to putting together for our class each year. 
We've been using homework folders for our class for going on 16 years. 
Gulp...16 years. How does that happen?

Last year, we introduced 10 Homework Folders which you can read about {here} and {here} and {here}. 

We've personally used our Under the Sea folder to match our ocean themed classroom for years and our class adores them. They feel so proud. Parents also love the help and reference tool.

By popular demand, we’ve created  
Homework Folders for Olders,
for older primary students this year. They are really designed for 1st-3rd graders, but kick the skills up a notch for our original 10 Homework Folders. 

Introducing 4 new themes for our Homework Folders for Olders

We have learned that many families are very willing to help their children with their homework, but are often uncertain as to how to help.

Our Homework Helpers give families and students a handy helper to guide their children through their first years of homework. Independent students learn to use the resources of the folder to assist themselves with their nightly studies. By providing parents and students with resources at their fingertips which cover many of the foundational Common Core Standards, you will provide families with multiple learning opportunities and reinforcement activities at home. Amazing what a lil’ folder can do!

Included are lots of options for creating your own Homework Folders for Olders. Choose the components that best meet your needs or follow our assembly instructions and sample photos.
