Smead� Color File Folders, Letter Size, 1/3 Cut, Red, Box Of 100
Files to file
I couldn't keep my workspace organized at home or on the job without Smead File Folders. The variety of colors available help me to color code different categories or sections. Tab cuts also allow you to find files easily...makes it difficult for files to hide. It would be spectacular if Smead could produce files in a variety of additional unique colors.

Organizing My Classroom Files
I use colored file folders to help keep my lessons, student worksheets, etc. organized. When you open my file drawers you will notice how color coded they are.
Red file folders-Reading (because the words read & red are close in spelling)
Orange file folders-Grammar/Writing (orange is close to red)
Pink file folders-Spelling/Phonics (pink is another form of red)
Yellow file folders-Math (it was a color left over)
Green file folders-Science (I think of science associated with life and green)
Blue file folders-Social Studies (I think of the blue earth & people around the world with blue)
Gray file folders-Homework. (since homework covers all of the subjects, I picked gray as a neutral color)
It is great to have my files like this so that I can go right to the subject & know where to find things!
I also use a lot of folders for my classroom file folder center activities. I use the same color code for the files so the students know what subject they are-it helps to keep them organized.

I have used Smead 1/3 cut file folders for our home filing system for the last 3 years. The tabs are large enough to write on without being to much. I am one to never be afraid of color so when I saw these Red folders on sale I said, "what a great buy and the color was amazing"! That was last year and I've continued since. I've used cheaper brands and they just are not worth it. They tear and are just too thin. Smead brand is well worth the price even if they are regularly priced or on sale. I will never go to any other brand again. I am thinking about getting a different color though, ya know just to switch it up a little...LOL
