I BOUND MY FIRST BOOK

20140521-165203-60723501.jpg

For a long time I have wanted to be able to bind loose leaf pages that have been taking over my houses. Pages from JJ’s works of art, loose worksheets, memory work cards, and just about any other printed matter. Spiral binding is far superior to 3 ring binders due to the space saving ability. Like ring binders, you can also remove and add sheets as needed. I had been eyeing the highly recommended Pro Click system after reading great reviews about it.
However I was recently able to purchase a lesser known and cheaper system by Carl Brands. For around $20 for the machine and $12-$20 for 100 spiral spines, it was worth it for me to try. I was pleasantly surprised with his easy it is to use. The only caveat is that I can only punch 5 pages at a time and each page needs to be punched 6 times. However since I am not binding massive amounts of pages on a regular basis this is not an issue for me.

Recommended Products: Kindergarten Common Core

There has been a lot of buzz about standardizing the core subjects in the US school system. This movement has been called Common Core Standards. All states are to implement these standards by the year 2014. My state already has.
Now Common Core Standards is giving away a free kindergarten workbook which will cover all of these standards. This is a great opportunity for teachers and homeschooling parents, or even early learning parents, like myself, to be able to have an amazing resource for their children.
Be sure to check out the Kindergarten Common Core workbook now!
