My first year of teaching, I spend a lot of time creating my own curriculum, and faithfully, went through hundreds of laminating sheets, even though my class size was small with 6 children. I always made 6 copies of each, one for each child.
A better way to save the environment, by just wiping off the markers, when the children practiced their pre-writing skills, and other worksheets. Some of the children, though still try taking them home, they love doing them so much. What do you do with all the unwanted papers, that seem so important to the child. Just take a photo of their work, and add it into their album to remember, how great they did!
Laminating is a time saver, especially if you teach in a home, school, a church setting, a road trip, or even creating your own planner! Best place to buy these sheet is amazon of course! This Scott Laminator, held up its job! I would give it 10/10! I buy, the big bulk Scott package of sheets, usually 200, as it a better savings, and after reading lots of the reviews, the pages do not peel over time, like the cheaper competition. Good Luck in your lesson planning, or reviewing your child’s skill.
