Well, tomorrow is the first day of school and I have been busily (that may be an understatement) running around to put on the finishing touches.
Today, I made my envelope collection system. I used Excel to make a simple roster/assignment organizer. The names are down the side of the paper and then I made blank boxes to write the assignments in. I used duct tape to reinforce the edges and to differentiate the different classes.
The procedure (should go) is I will send the envelope around the room. The student will put their paper in the envelope and initial or check off. Once it gets back to me I will have a quick way to see who has turned in their papers and who hasn't.
Hope it goes as planned!
