Cheap As Chips have a great (in range, design and price) line of sticker books.
There’s a wide range of designs, including sets personalised with children’s names.
They’re designed in Australia by KEA, a novelty gift wholesaler. Unfortunately they don’t appear to be available online, so you’ll have to find them in-store.
At $2 each, the 180-sticker booklets are perfect for the classroom and considerably cheaper than more traditional educational sellers.
I particularly like the rather creative ‘Build Your Own’ series. These are booklets of 450 mini-stickers which can be assembled to construct pictures such as a house. Children can combine several sheets to make larger houses or combine them with other themes such as ‘Spooky House’. Other useful sets include ‘Aussie Alphabet’, ‘Computer Keyboard’ and ‘Calendar’.
The stickers can also be used for decorating worksheets prior to photocopying. This can prove a lot quicker than downloading and inserting clipart.
As my collection of sticker booklets grew, I clearly needed a better organisational system. My solution was a CD album. The booklets slide easily in and out and will retain single pages too. Not shabby for a $2.50 investment!
