saving the book

Part of our summer school work takes us the old workbooks.  Some of these books might actually be old books. I've collected them from all over.  When I taught, I of course I just walked myself down to the copy room so the books were never written in. Now there are some that I'm using with Bee and Lou.  So that I can use Bee's books with Lou, I've got to keep them clean. (Of course, we do a lot of work that doesn't involve a 'workbook'- but I figure if kids are tested with paper and pencil tests, they need to do some work with paper and pencil- I feel like I've already tried to defend myself here, maybe I have)

I laminated an empty sheet and trimmed it to fit our books.  Two clips hold it in place and now Bee can do the work using a dry erase marker.

I thought she'd really like getting to use a dry erase marker for her work. 

Turns out that she didn't.  She wants to write in the books with pencil.  crud. We've made a compromise and agreed on some books that she can write in.
