I send these home three nights a week with small readers inside. They usually last about 3 months before the velcro doesn't close anymore then I have to replace the velcro strips. I wish you would carry the same plastic envelopes with the two button and string enclosures they last a little longer. Overall it's a good product to protect my books. The students love the envelopes.

Tough folder, but needed in smaller orders
My son got this really great folder last week for his homework. I really liked it and so did our 16 week old puppy. He snatched it off the kitchen table and chewed it up. He covered it with teeth marks. The folder looks bad, but it held up. The homework paper inside was intact!! However my son just needs one new one, but I had to order 12. I wish they would sell them in smaller bundles.

Great organizational tool!
I use these folders to organize my guided reading groups. I keep each groups' book they are working on, lesson plans and anecdotal records in them. The colors are great and they are durable. I wish they were a little less expensive, though.

Perfect for the job!
This is the second year I purchased a class set of these envelopes. They are perfect for students to carry homework, newsletters, and graded work to and from home each day. The large size allows for papers, a reading book, and a notebook to be kept together. The only flaw is the sides sometimes split. Easy to fix with a little packing tape. These last the entire year and the kids from last year showed me they were using them again this year in their fifth grade work!
Parents like the packets too because it is easy to carry, prevents damage to books/classwork, and lives in their child's backpack. Great way to send letters back and forth.
My students and I taped a multiplication chart to the outside and now it is a fast reference for quizzing each other on the bus or in the car! It is also handy during reading groups for keeping book set lessons together. Students can keep their group writing in the clear folder labeled with their group name. Handy and easy to store!
Great product that I plan to purchase eac
