I do the same thing Jan. Only I don't tape one end. I just leave it open. First I always have the kids put their names on their papers (and their teacher's name too). Each table has a table folder. Student folders go into the table folders. Table folders are collected and I put them in the class folder (same 12x18 folded construction paper). I put them up on the shelf. I color code the different days classes meet (4 different colors). I've had a few things fall out. If there's no name, I'll just put it in the table folder or the class folder and deal with it later. I've had a few problems but for the most part it's a system that works well. I've written about it on my blog and there's three examples that show how the students illustrate the front.

I have my kids make portfolios out of 24x 18 paper, folded. Then they fold and tape/staple one short end. Keeps most stuff in place.

I think the portfolio is a bit of a nightmare really,,t hings fall out and get lost. I fyour in a school that doesn't have a lot of money I think that scrap books are the way to go. Any hand outs you give them can be glues in. Any larger sized pictures can be folded.
