Science Notebooks

I’ve gotten lots of questions about my science notebooks and the duct tape down the spiral binding…so I thought I would answer the most popular question! 🙂

Putting the duct tape down the side–BEST idea ever!  The notebooks held up so well, most of them look good as new even though we filled up about 3/4 of the pages in the notebooks.  They were also crammed into the kiddos seat sacks each time we were done with them and they still look great!

There were a few pages that came out of some notebooks  here and there, but I think that would happen with any spiral notebook in the hands of a Kindergartener! 🙂

These are my notebooks shortly after I made them and this is pretty much how they looked at the end of the year! 🙂







I know I’ll be using duct tape again this year!

  1. Followed your directions last year for Science Notebooks! BEST idea ever! I’m still waiting for a tpt pack to use with my notebooks!


  2. I just commented on your post from last year and wondered the very same thing! Thank you for the update. I’m a new follower of your blog 🙂


  3. How do you treat the ends of the tape. Do you fold it in or trim it even? I may try this, but wondered if you had any hints on applying the tape? THANKS.


  4. Thank you so much for your idea! This should work great this year with my firsties! I mentioned you in my latest post!


  5. How do you keep the spiral coil from sticking to the duck tape?
