For the past two years I have done Poetry Binders in my class as a center and it's been great! However, this year, binders have yet to go on sale at Staples and I don't know if they will. So I'm thinking of other means. Option 1: Spiral Notebooks They will open up their notebook, glue the poem to the left page with a gluestick, highlight specific things in the text as they read, and illustrate on the right page. I also like the idea of the kids making a table of contents and numbering the pages. But will the pages just stick together? Will the gluestick be less mess? Will the pages fall out? Option 2: 3 Prong Folders I will already have the poems 3 hole punched, and the kids will put the poems in the prongs. They'll do the same activities as above but illustrate on the same sheet. But then again, will it be a hassle to teach the kids how to use the prongs? Will the prongs break? Will we overstuff the folders by adding a new poem every week?
