I’m once again ready to tell you about some great office supplies that I got from Shoplet. This time I received one of their handy file jackets, some hanging folders, and a daily planner. All of these things could be good to use as a special education teacher, so I was happy to receive them.
As you can see in the picture on the right, I received a very cool Esselte Copysafe File Jacket. This thing is awesome. It is actually a plastic folder that has a design printed on it which keeps you from being able to see what the papers inside say. The pattern is on the back and the front of the folder, to conceal everything. The only way you can read stuff is if you take it out of the folder. This would be great for students’ papers so others can’t read what they say. I have never had a folder like this so I think it’s a great idea.
I also got an Ampad Project Planner. I was afraid this one was just going to be another 2012 planner that I didn’t need. However, it is not. It is simply a book of 84 pages that allows you to write down a goal or project and plan out the steps to achieving it. So, I could write down a goal for a student and use the lines to describe the desired behavior to reach those goals. I could also write a list of steps out. Overall, this is way handier than I thought it would be.
Additionally, I got a set of Pendaflex Ready-Tab Lift Tab Reinforced Hanging Folders. I knew instantly these could prove to be useful as they can hold onto papers for me and help me get organzied. However, these are better than the typical hanging folders. Each folder actually has 5 tabs made into it. You simply pull one up to write on it and to have it be displayed. Then, if you need to re-organize stuff or re-use them, you can simply push that tab down and pull up another one. Wow! Isn’t that great? Plus, since these tabs are made into the folder, I don’t have to worry about them falling or peeling off. I do think it would be nice if they came in designs though.
