Recycled Pocket Folders
Make something new and interesting for your classroom and get yourself excited for the adventure of a new school year! You can even reuse and recycle at the same time. I reused some pocket folders. For this one, I made a collage out of magazine pages and glued it to the folder. Then I covered the whole thing with clear packing tape. I think they will last a long time, and they'll be fun to use, too. I plan to use these for collecting homework.
Do you notice the mannequins in the pictures? I used these because I have life-like mannequins in my classroom. Stay tuned, because I plan to share many ideas about how I use these mannequins to teach French!
Here's one that I covered with an old map of Paris (left). On the right is my lesson plan book. I used an old map from the French university I attended for the cover.
