A heavy duty hole punch?
What To Do:
Well, what NOT to do is cut and stick your worksheets into your exercise books anymore.
Why not try this. Hole Punch every exercise book. Give students two treasury tags and from now on, only slip the sheets into the relevant part of the books via the tags, rather than sticking them in!
We have been doing this since September 2017, it is working a treat!
Hole punched books & feedback template improved my workload significantly last year. Feedback on a full class set of books in less than 30 mins including SPaG. Use for low stake testing and retrieval. Happy to share⏱ RT 🔄#SLTchat #nqtchat #teacher5oclockclub #teacher5aday pic.twitter.com/zPB5kL8eqg

Colour code your sheets? Hole punch texts/extracts to annotate easily?
Nice to see this idea being shared to new teachers!
My top tip in ITT training this week was: hole-punch books and worksheets. Saves paper, saves the faff of glue, and looks so much neater. Also good for re-drafting ✅ pic.twitter.com/W3c2SHRanL
