14 Days of Loves: Day 4

We do Words Their Way word sorts everyday. One of the biggest obstacles in implementing this was storing each student's set of 20+ words. Bags and envelopes just end up thrashed and words become floor confetti.

Enter the zipper pocket.

I found them at a back-to-school sale, but even at a discount they were $1 each. The cost almost scared me off, but they've proven to be worth 5 times that!

I've had this class set for several years and they still look really good. They take a lot of abuse and still come through. Yay for zipper pockets!

  1. I love zipper pouches! I use them for sooo many things!

  2. Great idea!

  3. That is a great idea! What I am dong this year works, but I really like the idea of the zipper pouch!

    I glued a small clasp envelope to the inside front cover of my students word work notebooks. The claps broke pretty quickly!
