Setting up the Folders
How to Use the Folders
Inside each envelope the students will place 3-5 index cards: one index card per fact that you would like them to write about for that paragraph. I like to color code our index cards and envelopes so that if the cards fall out, you can easily identify where they belong. Each day you give the students time to research one of the four paragraph topics for the report, have them record one sentence per card, and have them store the cards in the correct envelope until further notice.
