I am a sixth grade teacher at a school in Chicago. I teach in a self-contained classroom and teach all subjects. It can sometimes be overwhelming to try and get everything done, but I manage. In an attempt to work more effectively, I am requesting something that will save a lot of time and energy for all staff members at my school. Our school has a laminating machine (which is great), but we do not have any laminating paper to put in the machine. I would love it if someone would donate a few rolls of laminating paper so we can laminate posters, bookmarks, student's culminating projects, etc. I always go to Kinko's and teacher stores to laminate, but it is just too expensive. Why not use the nice laminating machine we have in our school? We just don't have money in the budget to purchase the laminating paper. If we were to receive this, I would laminate all forty posters I have made this year so I would not have to make them again next year. Sixth grade is a benchmark grade and my room is covered in posters so my children are constantly reminded of how to do math and a review of vocabulary words. I try to leave things hanging up so the children go back and review. You cannot teach something and then move on to the next concept without reviewing every once in a while. I would also laminate white pieces of paper so the children could use it as a dry erase board. They would be able to use a dry erase marker to do a math problem, erase it and move on to the next problem. Students like a variety in materials and learn better with hands-on examples, so using a marker rather than a pencil is always fun and exciting for children. I am passionate about teaching and believe with the right resources and dedication, my children will succeed. The dedication and committment on my end is there, now I just need the resources. Thank you.
