After an interesting morning, calming wet, scared doggies, and maintaining crowd control at P’s orthodontist appointment, I dropped P and her friend off at the mall.
I decided the boys and I would stop in at Staples “just to see” if they are carrying those great elementary composition notebooks, for back to school. We were in luck! 😀 Oh the big cheesy grin was definitely happening there!! I didn’t have much money, so I only bought five. I got two First Grade notebooks and three Third Grade notebooks. (<– They also carry them on Amazon!)
My son is going into second, but I prefer the line spaces on the Third Grade ones. They are both skip-line ruled, meaning there is a set of two solid lines with a dotted center guide line, then a blank line, then another set of primary lines.
It really makes writing words with ascenders and descenders (such as y,g, k,d, l, etc.) easier to read! They are good quality white paper, NOT newsprint, with 24 pages per book. I love using these for spelling notebooks for the kids while they are younger, but not yet ready for traditional wide ruled paper. The Third Grade notebooks are wide ruled, but have that dotted center guide line for help.
If you’re looking for primary composition notebooks right now, check your local Staples, or you can order them from Amazon.com. They are made by Roaring Springs. Tomorrow I’m going back to Staples to buy about ten more notebooks. 😀
