What do you do with old & used workbooks/assessment book

Postby i3mum » Mon Dec 20, 2010 10:15 am

Hi all,

Wanted to ask what do you do with the old & used workbooks & assessment books?

My kids' old books are stacking up and have been taking up a lot of space. I am trying to clear up my home, but thinking they might need them one day?

Any feedback?

No point keeping them. There are new publications all the time...syllabus is always changing as well. Why don't you copy down some of the assessment books you find useful. Those assessment books which my son has finished are usually thrown away.

Used workbook as in textbook? I think u can donate away to those who need it.

I guess some of the mummies here will be interested. Especially those with many kids. :wink:

Last week, I were thinking of setting a thread here on old textbook. Getting mummies to donate old textbook to those who need it.

Hi Janet_lee 88,

Thanks, I was wondering what to do with them. Just in case if they need to refer to them.

Hi chatelaine,

It's those workbooks that the kids use in school, not the textbooks.

I dump all my son's school workbooks/activity books on the last day of school. Don't bother keeping...you won't be using them, esp Social Studies, Chinese, Maths, English.
If not because P1 doesn't have any English textbooks now, I would have donated away son's old Eng text.

Hi janet_lee88,

It's ok :) thanks for asking. In the end, we didn't sign my girl for the lessons, as we signed her for English lessons Lcentral & as for Maths, she is currently in CMA. We are thinking to switch her to MPM mid next year, still considering.
