What new thing did you try this year that worked out well? I have a wall in my library area where I hang my student's published piece from each unit. I use a single binder ring and add the new piece on top. The kids read their own writing and each other's when they are at the library station. I love it because they can really see their own progress and their friend's progress through the year. I've also been able to take them down and share it with parents and grandparents. At the end of the year I'll send the whole stack home (which I've always done). I laminated enough scrapbook paper for everyone to have a sheet, put a tack in the top center of each one and then hung the rings on the tack.
