For all you lucky ducks who are out of school already (6 more days!!!) and are planning for next year, here is something super simple to make.
I made these for my class to use for sorting activities. They are generic and can be used for any type of sort you want to create.
Each folder contains a envelope on the back to store the cards for the sort and 3 library pockets inside. The pockets have velcro on them so that I can change the sort categories at any time. We were identifying strategies we could use to help us solve addition facts quickly on the day I took these pictures. To create the cards for the sort all I do is create a table in Word or Pages (depending on whether I'm at school or home) and plug in what I want them to sort. These are an excellent center activity or a "I'm done, now what?" activity. Despite their simplicity the kids love them!
