Decorating Writer’s Notebooks

Kate (the other fourth grade teacher at my school) & I are planning on spending Friday, 9/7 decorating writer’s notebooks with our students. I’m thinking that it should be almost like a scrapbooking party. I’m in search of affordable places to buy lots of stickers for the kids to personalize their notebooks. I am not sure where there’s a dollar store in Rhode Island yet, but I did find‘s Clearance Page.

Any advice as to where I can go to purchase decent, quality stickers at affordable prices for my students to use on their notebooks? If so, please drop me a comment since this is all I’ve amassed thus far:

  1. In Indiana we have a Big Lots… they often have stickers and other things…. Hey- I am teaching fourth grade this year, would you be up for having a class pen pal?

  2. If there is a Hobby Lobby or Wal Mart, you may find stickers there. I know the Dollar Tree in Jackson, TN has scrapbooking stuff. I talked to a girl and they use magazines pictures/letters and pictures from home to decorate their notebooks. (they also have the students bring in stuff to decorate their notebooks) They also cover them with clear contact paper to keep them nice and clean that’s what I plan on doing this year.


  3. Hi! I’ve been reading your other blog IR&W and enjoying it. I teach 3rd grade in PA. Language arts is my passion and I am close to earning my masters in Reading. I’m also a scrapbooker so when I saw your query about stickers I thought I’d respond. If you know any scrapbookers I would check with them to see if there’s anything that they are trying to get rid of. I use all my old/extra/misc. supplies to have my kids decorate their notebooks. You may also want to check Oriental Trading Co. I’ve also had my kids bring in pictures that they want to put on the front of their notebooks. We also used large mailing labels that the kids draw on to create their own stickers.

    Hope this helps. I am looking forward to reading your blogs in the future as school begins. Beth
