There are many ways teachers collect papers. Personally, because I collected every paper, I needed something a bit more specific. I had a stack of file trays that were labeled for math, reading, writing, science/social studies, other. That way, I wouldn’t have to sort papers near as much when I put them in my grade book. Here are a few other ideas I’ve seen:
Here’s a GENIUS idea I just saw: the teacher had made magnets with different locations where students should turn in papers. She’d stick the magnet on the board next to the item on the to do list. That way, the kids would know where they should put each paper and she wouldn’t have to repeat herself or write the directions day after day. So Smart!
