Laminating Madness

Help me give my students laminated anchor charts, which will be helpful for them to refer back to and for the teachers to be able to reuse year after year.

My Students

Our school is a Title 1 school and our budget does not allow students and teachers to have the resources we need to properly learn/teach. Each year teachers create anchor charts that are posted for the students to refer to when they forget how to do a certain skill. These anchor charts are essential in the classroom as an easy reference. The teachers find themselves having to store the anchor charts, but unfortunately they do not hold up well.

Having the ability to laminate the larger post-it anchor charts will give the teachers more time to work on more important tasks rather than rewriting anchor charts that were destroyed during storage.

The end of the year is approaching quickly and the teachers would greatly appreciate the opportunity to laminate them for use next school year.

My Project

Teachers are constantly making anchor charts to post on their classroom walls that allow the students to look back and help them remember steps to skills or strategies used in the classroom. Teachers spend a lot of time creating these anchor charts, which is time that could be used to grade papers, create lesson plans, and the million other things that need to be done to make sure our students succeed in the classroom.

Please help us purchase a laminator that can laminate the larger post-it anchor charts we are currently using in our classrooms.

Teachers need all the help they can get and being able to reuse the anchor charts each year would greatly be appreciated by the teachers. These post-it anchor charts are great for sticking on the walls initially, but when they need to be stored, they adhere to each other and rip trying to separate them.
