Such a busy time of year with IEPs and Teacher Appreciation and testing and …and…and. So much going on as we wind up the year….and that doesn’t even include those of you who have to start getting ready for ESY! So, this post will be short and sweet with mostly pictures.
Bloggers if you want to link up, just add the graphic at the bottom to this post with a link back to this post and add your post to the link.

I thought I would highlight file folders this month because they are easy to use and you can leave the same ones in the systems for a full week and all that needs to be done is to reset them. Plus, I love that you can use them for all different ages from preschool to high school with a wide variety of skills. Some are simply matching and others are more advanced. All of these examples come from products in my store. If you click on the pictures you will see the products they are part of.
This is a simple one that is part of a set for matching letters and numbers. One of the things I love about file folders is that you can change them out for different seasons but keep the same skills.
Sorting is always a good activity for file folders. I like to do the sorting with strips of Velcro so the students don’t get the answers from the number of pieces of Velcro in each category. The worksheets at the bottom are worksheets that were laminated to be reused by one of my districts during a make-and-take we had for the staff.
These are functional sight words that correspond to Edmark Functional Word Series. The words are all written in different fonts to work on generalizing the mastered words. You can make them into file folders, or if you just want one page and easy storage–laminate each page and put it in a binder. Then just pull out the ones you need. (These can also be made into task cards instead of file folders–I love versatility).
