Yep, clickbait title I know. Sorry. But it’s true…these two little tips have probably saved me countless seconds since I discovered them…
Making sets of cards
Before you cut up a set of cards, mark them quickly with different coloured pens. You can do it on coloured paper too if you like, but that’s more expensive and a lot more faff!
Once you’ve cut them up, you can then divide them quickly into separate piles. If they get mixed up, or one falls out of a set, it’s easy to see where it belongs.
Folding piles of worksheets
Once you’ve printed them all, fold the whole pile in one go.
Separate them out into a messy pile.
Sharpen the fold, a few at a time if necessary.
Repeat until you’re happy with the result 🙂
What silly little things do you do to save yourself a few seconds of precious time?
