Lets Keep Laminating

My students need various size laminating pouches for projects.

My Students

I teach three seventh grade classes of English Language Arts. Our school is located in an area of high poverty. For the first time in years I am teaching an all general education population. I intend to make sure that all their needs are met every day.

The school has suffered many budget cuts that have left us with NO money to purchase anything other then mandated material; however, none of district issues have detracted from my students' desire to learn.

My Project

Remember when your mom pulled out the box of your school projects and they were brown and a bit brittle? What if you pulled them out and they were perfect, as if time stopped and you were back in seventh grade? That is what lamination can do! I opened up my classroom and my vocabulary is ready to go and looks like I printed it yesterday.

Lamination allows for papers to withstand the constant use by students and time.

Last year's pieces were amazing, so I want continue laminating for this year's group, but I no longer have any pouches available.
