I have always enjoyed watching the kids work in the Dyslexia Games series B and C. Every time they complete a puzzle, I want to also work on a puzzle. (This post uses affiliate links.

I recently received a DIY pocket journal just for me that had a few pages from the Dyslexia Games series. I thought, now I could just print these for myself since I enjoy them so much. So that is what I did.
I printed the pages using the booklet setting on my printer. This made them print at half the size of the regular 8.5 by 11 pages. So two small pages per regular sized sheet of paper. I cut all the pages in half with my paper cutter then punched them with my ARC hole punch and put them in an ARC notebook. Are you familiar with the ARC notebook system? It is so amazing and lets you customize your notebook or planner however you want it. I used the half size planner covers that are clear. I like to be able to change the look of my cover often. By using a clear cover, I can simply place different artwork behind the cover. The binding rings were actually left over from some other notebooks that I had made. Once the pages were punched, I inserted them onto the rings and added the covers.
I feel like this is a good size book to carry around with me in a small tote with a black pen. I can just pull it out whenever I have a free moment and work in it. I like to work on a few pages while the kids do their school work. My son likes to find the same page as we and we work together. So that is fun for him too.
I didn't print all of the Dyslexia Games books. I went through and chose my favorite books and ended up printing a few from level B and then a few from level C. So the Dyslexia Games aren't just for kids and they aren't just for dyslexia either. They remind me of logic games and puzzles and really those are good for anyone!
