  1. Taylor Lewis says:

    I really love the idea of speech folders. I am beginning my CF this fall and am planning to utilize speech folders. Do you perhaps have more images of examples of your speech folders witht he prongs? Thank you!

    • Shannon says:

      Hey Taylor! Great question! I added a picture of a folder without the prongs. I usually put worksheets to-do on the left side pocket and data sheets/student info on the right side. Hope that helps!

    I have students retrieve their work folders from their mailboxes (magazine holders.) These magazine holders may or may not be manufactured any longer, they are 2 feet high and 3 feet wide and have approx. 24 slots for student work folders. I have a wide variety of student ages and abilities (K-10) and they are all able to “find their work and bring it to the work table,” as stage 3 of the posted entry routine (yes, visuals!)

      That’s another fantastic idea!! I’ve seen those holders and always wanted to try them for something. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Wow….thanks SO much for putting this post together. I was looking for a new system instead of sending home folders that don’t ever get looked at and takes up valuable minutes. You’ve helped me figure out a new plan. THANKS!

I love the sticky notes system. I’m gonna add that to my routine. Thank you for sharing!!! What a helpful post!!!

    • Shannon says:

      I’m so glad the post was helpful! I do the same as far as putting in lessons/materials as I find them! Thanks for commenting!

    Hi!
    Are there specific data sheets you recommend that have open areas that the Avery labels would fit nicely on? I absolutely love your idea of using sticky address labels when you take data for larger groups!

    • Shannon says:

      Not at this moment but I’ll definitely look into it and try to share out my ideas in another post! Great idea!

  6. Janet says:

    I love the post it notes idea and then to add it to the data collection sheet. Have you had time to develop a sheet on which to put the labels?
