Notebooking with Early Elementary

I know a first grade teacher who wants to start notebooking with her little guys. She has enough experience to know that a normal compostion book will not work. She asked her group of students to purchase a primary composition book that has a large space for pictures on top and young child friendly lines below.

The problem she ran into was that the local stores don't stock them in the quantity that she needed and none of her parents could find them.

She ended up having to purchase through the internet. This can get pricy...I saw them from anywhere from $4+ to $2+ (depending on how many you ordered). I believe that she got the funds approved through her principal (she is at a title one school) and is currently waiting for the shipment to come through.

I am excited to see how she will incorporate notebooking in this young grade.

I'm a 1st grade teacher and found your blog through another teachers post on her blog. I am exploring the idea of a science journal and experiment twice a week. Just hoping I can get it together and make it work. I only have an hour a week for it so it is going to be tight. Thanks for your ideas! I've been exploring past posts.
