Paper Pouches

I had trouble with "slouchy" papers (curled up) in my center baskets and mom said "just make a pouch." Now I make them for everything. You can use a file folder, poster board, or even foam board. Staple the sides and tape the edges. If you laminate them, they would be even sturdier. There are all kinds of folders and tape designs so that you can make them super cute!
Here are some ideas:
 Center papers
Completed work-put in center basket so they do not have to get up and turn paper in.
Small Group Materials-you could even make these for each subject with information about where to find materials, books, Teacher's Manuals, etc., to make it easy for a substitute.


  1. What a great idea. Love it! I bought some cute printed duct tape and I think I'll use that to fancy them up. Thanks for sharing!
