With copies counted and money sparse in our grade level budget... we've been finding ways to keep things going BUT without the expense. This is a student math journal using math prompt labels. The kids get a label as they walk in the door from recess... they stick it 2 lines under yesterdays prompt. Read the label, draw, write and answer the journal prompt. Easy, quick and cheap!! I purchased the spiral bound notebooks at the beginning of the year and all four terms are going to fit ;)
For term 2, I experimented with printing the labels onto bond paper rather than labels. I printed, chopped & elastic banded each day... rather than stick them on they quickly glue them with their glue stick. Both were slick and saved on copies.
