Homework Folders

I have used many types of homework folders, from pocket folders, plastic folders to binders.  Nothing ever holds up!

Last summer,  I bought homework folders  (on clearance)  from Really Good Stuff and to give them a little extra support I ran them through the laminator.  Every single one made it the whole year!  The ones I bought fit my rock star theme which was a bonus! (I am bummed that they are not available this year) The pictures below are from day 176!


Here are the folders I am going to order this year with ELA and math resources printed on them.  They are worth the money! $18.88 for 12.

What do you use for homework folders?

  1. WOW! I love those math folders. That isn't a bad price either. I'm definitely going to look in them. Thanks for sharing this.

  3. I used the same folders for my weekly "Take Home Folders" (but a sports theme) and didn't laminate them. They lasted all year, too (only went home once a week, though).

  4. I also used the folders from Really Good Stuff. Bummed out that they don't offer them again as I have 3 science classes and wanted a different one for each class.

  5. My folders went home four nights a week! No homework on the week-end.

  8. I used the cheap pocket folders with a piece of packing tape on the binding. I only had to replace two last year; I don't mind because they're cheap.

  9. I am so sad that Really Good Stuff stopped carrying those. I have used them for years. They really held up well. Now what??? UGH! If it ain't broke, don't fix it I always say.

  10. I run the folder through the laminator opened and run the edge of a scissor blade along the pocket to cut it open.
