So I had seen these pockets on Pinterest and I wanted to make something like them for all the materials my kiddos have from our Everyday Math program.
|Purple Folder: Find original post here; Multi-Colored Folders: Dead post :(|
Before the photo bomb...I will confess: This post should be titled Monday My Mama Made it. She is the most awesome mama ever and my classroom wouldn't be half as cool without her. We make a good team: I come up with the ideas and she makes it happen! So she is my hand model in these pictures:
I know in the original pin the pocket from both sides of the folder were used to make more of a wallet, but I wanted only one pocket, so we were able to get two out of each folder.
One tip though, if you go that route, you will need to double stick tape the side that was part of inside of the folder.
Then I added a Velcro dot for a closure (Velcro that I had to go out and buy a separate day because what I had wasn't enough).
And there you have it: A math envelope for their dollar bills, fact triangles, etc. I made a little label for them and I got to reuse some of the messed up folders from years before!
Any other ideas what you could make these pockets and use them for?
