If you run out of room on a page, continue your writing on a separate sheet of notebook paper or blank white printer paper and glue it to the bottom of the notebook page (to extend the page further). This extension can be folded up and into the notebook so that it doesn't hang out. Students many NEVER just continue onto another page in their notebooks. This will cause them to be "off" from the rest of the class ISN Rules
