great post about how to use Cornell Notes and included a bookmark for students to use. Well, like so many other #made4math posts, I've taken her idea and improved it....
First, here's my file:
I used other fonts that didn't save well - obviously take and modify them as you wish. I have two classes this year - Algebra 2 and Math 2. The ones you will see are the Algebra 2 ones.
1) Modify the file as you wish - with your contact information, etc. I got the SMART Questions from this website (several of you have pinned it - this is the actual website).
2) Print on cardstock.
3) Cut. I have the file set up for 1/6" margins on either side of the 2 1/2" textbox. Enter my Fiskars 12"x12" rotary paper cutter. I cut at 5 2/3" and 2 5/6" (approximately) as marked on my guide below in blue.
So, this is what you have:
Shelli had you hole punch them and you're done.
But, wait, there's more! I got a new toy!Purple Cow 13" Hot and Cold Laminator. I got mine at Pat Catan's (a local craft store) for $30. As you can see, I got a great deal! So, continuing...
4) Turn on laminator. Put bookmarks into lamination sleeve and laminate.
5) Now cut and hole punch and you're done! I was not as precise as I'd like when cutting. I will have to do a little better on the rest of them. The top and bottom don't matter as much - it's the sides that should be nice and clean.
And there you have it - nice, LAMINATED Cornell Notes Bookmarks that should last. Again, a little time consuming, but they look great! (Yes, I'm a little biased, here, I know.)
