I passed out my science notebooks to my kiddos last week. The video crew was back to film us starting the year off with science and it seemed like the perfect time to hand them out. I was home one day last week with my 9 year old (he had the virus that’s going around our school) and I had the chance to finish up the science notebooks.
Here they are before I started. Each child brought 2 spiral notebooks to school with them this year, one for math, one for science. Some were thicker than others, so it took a little more work to get them set up.
I first started by having the children decide which color of duct tape they wanted on their spines. They could choose pink or green, because those were the colors I had. They also chose what color ribbon they wanted. I am a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator so I had LOTS of leftover ribbon and I take it to school to use when its retired. I taped the back first and wrapped the tape around to the front. The purpose of the tape is to help hold the notebook together. They get loved quite a bit, so I’m hoping that this will help us keep the front and back covers together all year!
I wrapped the duct tape from the back to the front. The spiral notebooks that are 70 pages just need one piece of duct tape to fold from back to front. Some of the thicker notebooks took two pieces of duct tape to fit all the way around the spiral.
Here they are all finished! :) I also added a label to the front that said “_________________’s Science Notebook”.
