Terrific Tuesdays! - Melodysoup Linky Party! To Folder or Not to Folder? How do YOU use folders?

I have a love-hate relationship with folders!

  •  I LOVE having a place for each student to collect a portfolio of things that we have covered throughout the year.  
  • I HATE having to take the time to put things into the folders.  If I'm not careful that can eat up 1/3 of my class and ya'll, I don't have the time! 
  • I LOVE having papers organized so that I can find work when I'm ready to grade it. 
  • I HATE having to open every folder just for one little grade.
  • I LOVE that I can usually manage to get enough for up to 3 grade levels and my choir just by creating one donorschoose.org project
  • I HATE how expensive they are! 
  • I LOVE being able to organize them by color so that everyone in one class has the same color.
  • I HATE that my students don't always stay in the class they started in and often move away. 

But what I really want to know is how YOU use folders!  IF you use and manage folders in your music classroom what are best tips?  

How does this work? 

1. You write a post related to this post.... ."How do use or manage folders in your music classroom?"
