Notebook Pages: Now What Do I Do With Them?

Hey there, Hi there, Ho there!

I'm a little behind the clean-up of last year's schooling and prepping for this year.

Good news-- we are painting the "high school room" this weekend!  

After that is finished, I will be able to participate in the
"Where Do You Do School" Not Back to School meme at HOTM.

Until then I thought I would show you what we do with our booking pages.

Since we are spending more for the nice binders,
I remove the pages from the sheet protectors 
(we re-use those too), bundle them up in order, add the cover sheet MFW provides for that year,
zip down to Kinkos and...


Notebooking pages, president sheets...

state sheets, state report, and loose science and art sheets are all coil bound.

Almost an inch and half!

(Random note: we are switching our rulers this year and yes, I will be posting about that!)

So there you have it.

Each child, each year has an organized assemblage (love that word) of their work.

It's amazing to see how much they've accomplished in a year.


What about you?  What do you do with your student's notebooking sheets at the end of the year?

I make coil-bound books at Kinko's too! :^)

Now why didn't I think of that? So far, I've kept ours in the binder. But those are harder to store than yours! Great idea!

Thanks for the tip! I am brand new to MFW so I haven't really decided how we will store it all once we're done for the year but this looks promising!

Genius! Definitely gonna do this!

We've always kept materials in binders, too. But I can see some advantages to your method. I will be featuring this post on the Sept. Notebooking Round-up at The Notebooking Fairy.
And I'd love to do a feature story about how you use notebooking in your homeschool. (I couldn't find a contact button.) If you're interested, email me [jimmie at and I'll send the questionnaire. Hope to hear from you!

I've been wanting to do this, too.

In Exp.-1850, did you group all your state sheets together, and all the president sheets together, etc.?

Looking for something??
