I have availed myself of the fabulous Walmart price on composition books (25 cents each), in the hopes of using them pretty extensively this year. One of the ways I am considering is as a poetry notebook. If you have one, how do you handle it? Do you keep them and hand them out as needed? Do the students work in them every day/week? Do the students paste/copy the poem into their book, then illustrate it? Last year, I tried a very involved math notebook for my kids (calendar math, ala beth newington, etc.) and they quickly lost interest. I am wondering how to do this better this year. Ideas, anyone???
