I designed morning workbooks for my class. Each day in on a half a sheet of paper. I am looking for those metal rings that I could use to hold the pages together.. Just one ring in the top Left corner.. hmm does anyone understand what I am trying to describe... Anyone know where I can get them??

if you're talking about binder rings, you can get them at office supply stores - in the same area where the paper clips and thumb tacks and that type stuff is located. i got a pack of 100 smaller ones for $5 or $6.

book rings or chicken rings

You can google "book rings" and you'll find what you're looking for.

An alternative is chicken rings. They are plastic. I haven't used them myself, but they are generally cheaper. http://chickenrings.com/category_page.html

Quality...

Make sure you buy quality rings...they may cost a little more, but they are worth it. I bought some cheaper ones and they came apart. I used them to keep my task cards together and didn't open them daily. Acco is a better brand. I think many office stores carry them.

They are called binder rings. I bought a pack of 10 or 12 for about $3.50. I went back yesterday and bought a pack of 50 for about $9.00 after tax

is to use zip ties! I am switching my metal rings (which often open up as the kids are using them) to zip ties this year. They come in all sorts of colors and are very Cheap!! Just a suggestion!!

I use metal shower rings from Dollarama. Work well.
The binder rings open /easily/accidentally and cause problems for the kids.

from Office depot as I use them quite often. They had them for $7.99 for 100. A pack of 12 was $3.19 so it made sense to buy the 100. After buying a few more things I needed, I was able to spend $15 and I got a free backpack and lunch bag for my daughter!!
