I remember reading a few parents recommended an A4 plastic folder to store exercise books, textbooks and other worksheets for each subject.
Is A4 big enough or will it be too snug?

Too snug - you need either foolscap or A3. Somewhere on here there is a thread about this. I'll see if I can find it. Ooh, is it time to talk about covering books with plastic again??My favourite time of year :lol: :lol: :oops:

Yes its that time again, we had to cover our math textbook with offcuts of wallpaper to protect it. Bizarre but no one dared argue with Miss Hewitt!

I found this one, which made me smile (also was interested to see how many of the same people were still posting (where's scarlett at the moment, a sticky back plastic thread should draw her out) - will see if I can find the one about bags - it will be September 2013 or 2014 I would imagine.

Ah thanks for the links Scary Mum - I was standing paralysed in Staples earlier today, trying to remember which folders had been recommended here (and failing of course) :lol: Didn't buy any in the end, I'm doing a wait and see thing, which is probably very foolish and disorganised of me...

WHS that well known high street stationary shop, has sticky back plastic in pink and blue as well as clear. Even DD was getting excited about it! :D

Just to up the game a little bit the the teachers asked son number one in year 7 to design clever collages for their exercise books and then coat them in sbp in not just art, but German 're, history, Latin and geography. :twisted:
After spending a large amount of time on the German book, enthusiasm waned until the final one, art, was basically his name and class using word art. Guess which subject teacher gave out rewards for the best! I told him he should have showed her his German book instead! :lol:
This delightful exercise meant a full week in snippy bits of paper, pritt stick and sbp he*l, with son number one, dh and I arguing about who was responsible for the biggest bubbles as we did the pull out/ruler smoothing trick. :lol:

Ha ha yes DD1 had to do the collage bit with several of her books too. The process was so painful (for me) that I made her photocopy the finished book covers so that I could offer them to DD2 and DD1 to stick on their books when the time comes!
