My kid's Science curriculum suggested I provide my children with half-lined paper so that they could draw sketches on top, and then write a blurb about what they learned in the bottom, lined section.  "Great idea!" I thought.  "Easy to find!"  I told myself. 


I was about 50% right.  


While half-lined paper is a great idea, the paper was not as easy to find as I had hoped.  And when I did finally find it?  It was 12 buckarooskies for one measly tablet.  And when you need a tablet for each child....Ouch.
