    Hi all!
    I'm trying to think of a creative name for the folder that will stay in my students' desks and essentially be a "catch all" for papers, assignments, etc. that aren't within a certain subject area. This will be the folder that the students keep ongoing work in. I've heard things like Underconstruction folder, Stop folder, etc.

    Any other ideas anyone would like to share?

    Thanks!

    We call it a "WIP" folder- work in progress.

    I use red folders for work that is not to go home - Red "Stop". Green folders "GO" to go home

    I don't have a cute name for mine. I call it our project folder. Not exciting, but descriptive! ;o)

    I called mine Catch-Up Folders. They were red and the kids liked it because it sounded like ketchup.
