Homework Folder Label

Product Description

Stick these labels in your students' take home / homework folders so there is no confusion on which papers should be returned to school and which papers should be kept at home! If you are looking for an editable set, please check out Take Home Folders with EDITABLE labels, Reading Log, & Behavior Chart

**Print these labels on Avery5162 Labels**
Actual size is 1 1/3" by 4"

Buy a class set of folders that are all the same color during the Back to School sales. It will be easier to manage students' take-home folders if they are all exactly the same. I always choose the vinyl covered folders because they hold up better.

The left side of the folder is "Return to School"...Things like HOMEWORK pages, field trip forms, forms from the front office, papers that need to be signed, etc.
The right side of the folder is "Keep at Home" {Take it RIGHT home. Haha} This includes graded work, brochures, newsletters, etc.

You might be a first year teacher, a veteran teacher, or a teacher that is trying to get organized. One thing I do know teaching Kindergarten is that I love to start the school year with parent communication as a top priority. It ensures that students will have one of their best years in school.

Within this blog post I’m sharing printable labels for homework folders, daily folders, and planners that the students take home. I have found that it’s one of the easiest and quickest ways to communicate with parents and guardians (especially when 36 students are involved).

Add all of the blank labels used for this project to your cart.

Homework folders: OL550WX
Daily folders: OL550WX
Notes for planners: OL875WX

Student Planners

It’s 3:05 in the afternoon and the students are dismissed at 3:15. All of a sudden the teacher realizes that he or she did not place a note in the planners reminding parents that the field trip is tomorrow and to wear sneakers. Do not let panic set in. Trust me, kindergartners will notice and take advantage. I might just be speaking from experience.

I am here to save the day! I have created over 20 different labels that will be useful throughout the entire school year that are quick notes to send home to parents.  These notes include field trip reminders, report card sent home, study spelling words, and return library book just to name a few. There are also some motivational notes for those students who worked extremely hard during the school day.

Teachers, make your life easier and print the free printables by clicking the image below rather than writing “Early dismissal tomorrow” 30 times. To print these labels for student planners, use the OL875WX (standard address labels).

Homework Folder

By keeping the homework folder separate from the daily folder, it allows students to be organized.  It further allows parents to know exactly what’s assigned for homework week-by-week. Within my classroom, we turn in weekly homework every Friday. By having the homework folder labeled with the student’s name on the front, it makes it easy for to check and return folders quickly.

Daily Folder

Using a daily folder for home and school communication is a great tool to use year after year.   Newsletters, graded papers, field trip forms, notes, and fundraisers can be sent home to parents through the daily folder.  Parents can also return forms and notes through the same method.  Teachers know right away where to look for important information and paperwork when it’s due or needs to be returned.

Using OL550WX labels, you are just one click away from choosing from four different colors to use on your daily folders!

As I mentioned before, it doesn’t matter if you are a new or veteran teacher. Starting the school year organized for you, your students, and the parents and guardians will set you up for success in the long run! Get started by printing these labels for folders and planners to use throughout the school year.  Need additional colors?
