A fellow teacher shared a wonderful organizing tip for keeping student work easily alphabetized. Each student is assigned a number that corresponds with the alphabetical order of their last name. They put "their number" on the top left corner of each paper they have and then papers can be quickly ordered for entering grades into a grade book or passing back to their mailboxes to take home. Such a simple solution to a task that used to waste so much of my time! I wish I could say I thought of it!!
