Every year, there are tons of papers students need to take home and bring back. It can be an overwhelming task to keep track of who has brought back what… especially if you don’t have a system. I’ll post all the ideas I see on this topic here:
One teacher used an extra pocket chart. She assigned each student a pocket and made a bunch of colored laminated cards for each pocket. She would assign a colored card (she could write on it multiple times) to each form that needed returned so she could see who needed to bring something back.
