I found these index card holders during a "Back to School" sale last year and knew they would be the perfect size for holding the task cards that I had been using in my room.
Because I have my groups completing different activities, I needed to find a way to label each box that could also be interchangeable. To the rescue: VELCRO DOTS. This allows for me to change the task cards inside each box quickly and I don't have to buy a million different index card holders. (Plus, who has the room for that?)
This allows this mess
To make the boxes interchangeable, I adhere the label (that of course has been laminated) with a Velcro dot. I should buy stock in those little dots.
These boxes are prefect for several different sizes of task cards, too.
When not in use, I keep all of my task cards in plastic baggies (the mess above), but then put the baggies in the corresponding magazine box that organized and labeled by skill.
