    I am in need of pocket charts that hold a file folder. Like this or this.

    Does anyone know where to find them in a color besides red and primary blue???? HELP!!! I know I linked to a multicolored one, but I need enough for each of my kids and my class could be as large as 33. So if I bought 2, I still might not have enough and they are $35 a pop. I've checked several sights and I'm not finding anything! Thanks!!

    If you go to schooltoolsabcabc.com and search for file organizer pocket chart you might find something you could use.

    Mardel. They have all kinds of colors/ patterns. If you don't have one local, you can always order online.

    Lakeshore has them, but they're usually red or blue. Not sure I've seen one that holds enough for 33 or more.

    To save money and space, you could use clear plastic that you can buy at Joanne's and add pockets to the back. I don't know if this would work for whatever you use it for, though.

    I love Mardel! It sells educational items, and it's a Christian book store as well. They are having a big teacher sale July 17, where everything education related is 20% off! including online orders.

    I looooove Mardel. So many cute things, it's really hard to not spend a fortune! That sale is going on when I'm on vacation, and I was not planning on bringing my laptop with me. Buuuuut I might need to make an exception! ;)

    You realize Mardel is owned by Hobby Lobby. I love them, but several people on here have sworn never to support them again.

    I didn't realize that, but when it comes to business, I, personally, try to take the higher road. I think back to historic periods where a certain race/ethnicity would refuse to shop at certain places based on the owners. I don't want that to be me :) That is the same reason that I didn't boycott Chick-fil-A when everyone else was. Business and personal beliefs shouldn't mix anyway.

    I ordered this same one and it is really cute. I have had the same one in a zebra pattern and have used it for about 6 years and it has held up great. Sometimes I put a lot of paper in the pockets because I use it to hold copies for future assignments and in the past I have had some that started pulling apart at the seems.

    Is this something that can be sewn back?

    Maybe but I do not sew so chances of me doing that are slim. I do not even think I have those anymore. I only used them for one school year. The one I got from Mardel has lasted for many years and the only reason that I got a new one this year is that I have had a zebra, black, and teal room for several years and I wanted something different so I am going with turquoise, poppy, and black with a chevron pattern.

    Their website says: Mardel: Christian & Education. You can't be surprised what their feelings and beliefs would be about certain issues. That's all I'm going to say. But I agree with Giraffe's feelings on the matter.
