STAR Communication Folders

Building a strong home to school connection is so important for your classroom. I personally use communication folders that are sent home daily with my students, reviewed by parents, and brought back the next day. It's the perfect home for all those papers, notes, money, or anything else that needs to be sent home to parents!
Have you heard of these amazing communication/take home folders? No matter what acronym you use {and trust me there are MANY! Here is a site of a whole list of them}, they are great tools for students, parents and you to build that home/school connection!

I’ve been using them for 3 years now and each year I’m amazed by the ownership my students display for these folders {even Kindergarteners!}. Not only that, parents ABSOLUTELY love them and consistently are amazed at how organized you are as a teacher to come up with it! Have I convinced you yet?

The folders are simple: binder or 3 prong folders, the choice is yours. I always use Poly Folders, they last the entire year and are not as bulky as a binder. I usually find these poly folders on sale during the summer, wal-mart offers them for 50 cents right now! You will also need a zipper pouch, plastic protectors and labels.

I’ve used BEE {Bring Everything Everyday} folders for the last 3 years but now I’m switching over to STAR {Students That Are Responsible} folders with my 3rd graders. My folders always begin with labeling the pockets: Left at School and Right Back to School. Then you get to choose what goes between. This year I’m doing: Reading Log, Monthly Newsletter and Classroom Information!
