Re: quickie/cheapie sketchbooks -- I'm not sure this will work because I'm
just doing them myself for the first time, but our 3rd graders are using
manila file folders as the front & back cover, and manila paper for the
pages. I plan on using the library's heavyduty stapler. I wanted to make
it something that we could use as a sketchbook/journal for 3rd, 4th & 5th
grades, especially now that NY state wants us to have more evidence of
learning. In addition to the manila paper (I had them count out the 30
sheets themselves), I made copies of information that we can refer to and
use in the coming years -- a creativity exercise, some short biographies
and line drawings of famous artists -- I'm also having them include a few
pages of graph paper (I always enjoyed doodling on it when I was young!)
and they compiled all the sheets inside the file folder, ready to staple.
Oh, also I had them write their names neatly along what will be the spine
of the book and the front of the book. We'll see how well they hold up
over the years....
