We always put the "history related" pages in the history binder (Egyptian drawing, Greek columns, George Washington artist), and the other pages in the general binder under "art."

I started out in CTG by keeping the art pages separate and I was going to bind them all together into an "art book" after 4 years. But that idea went by the wayside.

We've just started with CTG and so far I'm putting the pages under Art in the combined binder. Subject to change:)

I just put my dd's stuff in a hanging file folder (we copy the pages - saving the book for the 2nd time around, and dd doesn't always like to do the assignment, so I don't copy pages she doesn't like to do).

The paint/marker cards look cute on the fridge for a while.

what other pages have I missed all these years?
Do you get a separate book for each child?

I've been photocopying the pages that have boxes for drawing. They are forming a pile, and as with all piles it must be conquered before it takes over the room. Hence, my curiosity about where people put these things. Not a big deal, of course, lots of "right ways".

I like Julie's idea to put the history related ones in the history binder.

Thanks, all :)

I didn't want to punch holes in artwork and some things are too big for a binder, so for awhile each kid had a clipboard on the wall to put up their art. Worked as a display and a way to organize until we had about 20 pieces up. So I picked up some cheap art portfolios at Micheal's. I think they were about $3 a piece and they are big enough to hold some 3-D stuff and larger pieces, such as watercolor paper. So those are in the closet and every couple weeks I put the art from the clipboard into the portfolio.

Sounds complicated when I write it out, but it's been easy and neat.

Hi! I do the same as Julie. We had a binder that I organized at the beginning of the year for history and another for all other subjects. I have been photocopying the pages and placing them in the art section of the general binder, but I was just placing a couple of the pages yesterday in their history notebooks because they are directly related to our Egyptian studies! :)
