You do it with text books too?

Re: Curriculum workbooks - cutting off the binding

I've only done it on a few books though... my Konos curriculum and some of the smaller 6 week curriculum books that come in a bound book and I want to make copies, etc. Its just easier to flip through a binder than a book.

Absolutely!!! I think all workbooks, especially, should come spiral bound or loose instead of the glued binding.

Re: Curriculum workbooks - cutting off the binding

Not sure about glued bindings but I did use wire cutters to cut the spiral binding on The Kid's curriculum (MFW 1st grade). I then stuck the sheets in page protectors in a binder. It made the whole thing like three times as big as the original book was but it's easier now and I can make copies easily. I can take a picture of it if you want.
