Quick note: The transition over to www.3rdgradethoughts.com should finally be complete. I had to wait three whole days (torture!), but now it's a lot easier to type in my blog's address :)
Have you seen the idea on Pinterest to go to a home improvement store to cut your composition notebooks in half, thereby making two mini-notebooks?
I love Home Depot and the like, but I just couldn't imagine those huge saws cutting though my 50 cent composition notebooks and making them look nice.
Then, Monica at The Schroeder Page wrote about her trip to an office supply store and their print department and I knew that was the solution to my problem!
|From 15 of these big guys...|
|To 30 of these little guys!|
At my local Office Max, it was around $1 a cut, and they said thy could cut 500 pages in one cut- so it would only be a little over $3.
Then, the lady was kind enough to cut them one by one to make sure they were all even (she knows me too well!).Yaaay!!!
I plan on using these for my Math Message at the beginning of math class, so these will be PERFECT! Plus, it costs around $10 for 30 mini-notebooks!
|Hello little lovelies! Math is color-coded yellow- I'll have to tell you all about my color-coding system soon :)|
