    I'm trying to start my supply list for 3rd grade. The current 3rd grade teacher has 1 folder on her list, but I'm thinking I might need more than 1, maybe 1 for every subject.

    How many folders are on your supply list?

    6...it seems overkill, but we do everything color coded
    Red: finish work
    Orange: writing
    Yellow: fluency
    Green: cursive
    Blue: math
    Purple: grammar

    I switch my subjects up once in a while depending on the class and what students I have.

    We also use a 1/2inch binder to keep other things in as well.

    We purchase a plastic folder that has multiple sections inside of it for each of our students.

    The sections include:
    - Take Home Bring Back
    - Take Home Stay Home
    - Math
    - LAR (Language arts and reading)
    - Science
    - Social Studies
    - Spanish/French

    We get something similar to this- http://www.amazon.com/Esselte-Oxford-Poly-8-Pocket-Folder/dp/B000V9CQ1Q

    I only use two: one for daily home to school communication and one that goes home on Thursday nights with flyers and practice work.

    If I were to use several folders I think I would just purchase them myself so they match...but I'm a bit OCD like that. The big box stores always put them on sale anywhere between .01 cent and .15 cents in the summer so it's very affordable and would allow you to coordinate them and label them before school starts.
