How To Use ACE Paces (workbooks) For More Than 1 Child!

*** updated post here

First let me say that I think it's a good idea to buy from ACE so you support them but I know that many right now are needing to tighten their belt so hopefully this will help someone out. We have bought all of the Paces for the kids but recently I needed to cut back.  When the children are little and are not capable of copying into a copybook for the answers you need to come up with a way for them to write in the Pace without marking it.  Most people suggest cutting up the Pace and then putting them into a page protector but I didn't want to cut the Pace up so here's what I did:

First I bought Sliding Bar Report Covers like this:

and fine point pens:

***A note of caution about fine point wipe off markers...most of them are NOT fine point even if it says fine point.  These ARE so I highly suggest you get these since they are most like a pencil or pen.

Then I cut (the part that opens) the report covers  to 8" so they fit a page of the Pace then slide the page in and put the slide bar over the end.  I do this also to the prior page so that the wipe off marker doesn't get on the prior page.

I do this for each page that my kids are going to do for that day and...

WALA!  Wipe off Pace (workbook)...

To erase I HIGHLY recommend you take the report cover off first and then wipe it off...ya I've had it wipe off onto the Pace page so you're warned...
