Meet the G.O.L.D. homework folder. G.O.L.D. stands for Getting Organized, Learning Daily.
The front inside pocket is for Important Papers from School such as school newsletters, fliers, etc.
The first item in the folder is a fabric zipper pocket for Money and Permission Slips, the important stuff such as lunch money, book orders and permission slips.
The very first page is an introduction to the G.O.L.D folder and Do’s and Dont’s for using the folder
The next page explains what’s in the folder and where everything should go. After that is the classroom newsletter/calendar.
The next pages are the lunch calendar, classroom schedule, homework tips and handwriting guide. In general, we wanted the page protector portion of the folder to be items that don’t need to be changed often, if at all.
The last page is information about sight words and the 100 2nd Grade Sight Words. Next is a plastic folder sheet (with tab cut off.) The front pocket holds regular homework and the back holds the monthly reading calendar.
Last comes a few sheets of paper for writing notes between the teacher and home. I tried to check these quickly every day for any notes. I also tried to write at least a quick note every couple of months, just for a personal check in with parents.
The last pocket for Super Duper Work to Keep at Home holds student’s finished work.
