Laminating Heaven!

My students need to have their work laminated, so a new laminator and laminating pouches would be ideal.

My Students

Teaching is an amazing field. We wear many hats and are expected to provide the best opportunities for our students to learn. I work in a low socioeconomic area of the Bronx with limited resources. I teach students who are on the Autism Spectrum. We create colorful graphic organizers for the students to complete. In the Special Education world, we often reuse the same graphic organizers that are laminated because it our students learn through repetition. It allows for them to use dry erase markers or crayons to complete the work and then erase it and do it again. Sometimes, we attach Velcro and have the lower functioning students match pictures to pictures that have been laminated.

Being able to laminate work allows me to save paper, but also let the students reuse repeatedly until they are able to independently accomplish the task themselves!

Please support my class by buying us laminator so that we can enjoy doing our work everyday!

My Project

Laminating worksheets and file folder activities will allow the students to complete work at their own pace. It will encourage them to keep doing their work over and over again without making it messy with the traditional pencil and paper method. The file folders are fun activities that encourage students to use their fine motor skills to pull and stick the work together. Using their fine motor skills, will allow the students to become more independent and help with other activities in their lives.

Laminating the worksheets and file folder preserves the work and allows for these activities to be passed on from year to year.

It also helps save paper!
