I use daily communication folders for my special education students. First thing in the morning they bring their folder and place it in their "mailbox". I read any notes or information from their parents. During the day papers come from the office to go home or notes from me are placed into the child's mailbox. At the end of the day the students are given a few minutes to put all their papers into their folders, ready for their parents to read. This cuts down on the amount of time I have to run around making sure those important notes don't get lost on their way into the backpacks.
