Scenario: Class is working on an assignment. You set the timer for 20 minutes. 10 minutes in, a few kids finish and they have to sit there with that paper on their desk... or they bring it to you (which, if you are like me, ends up in you losing the paper)... or they lose it because they shove it in a folder... or they sit there and doodle all over it.
It happens. Collecting papers is no longer a hassle for me. In fact, I don't even have to collect the papers! What's that? Not have to collect the papers? Yep, I said it! Here is how my paper collection is handled.
No papers covering all my tables. No papers busting out of folders in my bag. Nice, organized, out of view to others, and simple! My favorite kind of idea! (And kinda 3 ideas in 1- highlighting the name ensures you have no papers without a name, turning in papers so you don't have to collect, and recording grades so you don't have to flip through the stack of papers!)
Be sure to hop over to my friend Lisa at Fourth and Ten to see her amazing idea on Mystery Motivators... I promise it is sure to be good!
