I hate dealing with student take home folders. I find they just take up space and time to mess with. We do not send homework everyday. Most days I find the kids' folders go home with NOTHING in them. I'd like to reserve take home folders and send them home only when there are important notes to go home. Anyone else NOT send home take home folder every day? I figure it could go home on Mondays with the newsletter. But after that, unless we have a note from the office - they don't really need their folders to go home. I understand the idea of teaching them responsibility by keeping up with the folder. I spend time at the beginning of the year teaching kids to give me notes from parents. I also do not do a daily behavior chart - I write a note when there is a problem I can't handle. We do send home guided reading books daily but I have a zipper pouch for those. What do you think? are daily take home folders that important for kinder? I'm torn.
