Keeping up with work can sometimes be hard. Handing back work can take forever! So I came up with a way to cut back on time and keep work straight.
Pictured below are my class cubbies. I do wish they were bigger. Maybe my fiance will build me bigger ones one day :). Every class has a cubby and unfinished or "continuing" work is kept here.
Inside of each cubby is a set of 7 "folders" (12"x18" folded construction paper). Why? Because I have 7 colored tables in my room. When students are cleaning up they place their work inside their "table folder". The folders are put into their class cubby. Easily accessible for me to hand back on another day and perfect if a student forgot to write their name on their work.
Finished work is also turned in via the folders and graded. I will give the work back to the students in the folder and each student will put their work into their portfolio and record the grade on their art grades log.
