Two for the Price of One

I love a good, cheap composition book, but I still don't like buying more of them than I have to.  I've seen how some teachers who need more than one per child cut theirs in half, which seems like a creative solution.  I've chosen though to use sides ends.  With a simple flip, one composition book can be both a math journal and science journal all in one.  I'll show you what I mean.

Voila!  Two for the price of one.

  1. I like your style. At $.50 a book at Walmart, I might just go out and get them. Thanks!

  2. Great idea, Tammy!! I found them for 10 cents a piece at Target once and bought 150 of them. It was a great buy, but I had to find a place to store all of them. Using your idea, they'll last me a long, long time:)

    1. Connie, 150?! Who could blame you for such a great deal though. :)

  3. That's cool Tammy!
    I was at Hubbard yesterday and they decided to use theirs for science too, but they're doing a tab. I think your way would be fun and easy too...
    It sure beats wasting money...I love you smart people. :-)

  4. Great way to save money and space inside their desks by only using one journal!

  5. Can I do a little whine?? Some of my little guys can't seem to remember to use the next blank page - they skip around all over the place. Any ideas on how to break that habit?

    1. I've never tried this, but I've seen some people hot glue a fabric bookmark to their composition books. That might help?
