With back to School in full swing I find myself still digging through worksheets, crafts, Report cards, and other miscellaneous papers from Jonathan’s 1st grade year. I don’t know about you, but I have the hardest time throwing away any work my children complete. With that said the papers sent home from either daycare, pre-K, and/or grade school can become overwhelming and an eye sore. My children’s stack of papers were completely taking over our fridge and counter space. I stumbled across this template and have implemented a “filing system” for my children’s important or non-important doodles (which I love to hang on too as well).
I love the idea of keeping a binder for each school year so that they can look back and see the progress they have made each year. Also, it’s a great place to keep report cards, student ID cards, school pictures from that year, etc. I like to get my son’s input on what he wants to keep and am surprised sometimes by his decisions. However, I can tell he always wants to keep what he worked on the hardest or what he enjoyed the most. I will love looking back at these for years to come!
I would love to hear how you organize your kiddos school work throughout the year!
