Love Lamination: Extend Material Life Through Lamination!

Help me give my students materials that are durable and can be used multiple times. Having lamination abilities will extend the life of our paper product materials.

My Students

Active kindergartners fill our room. They are so eager to learn through exploration. The students are from diverse cultures with very different demeanors and learning styles. Each student brings their own special piece to our classroom family. Unique learning experiences help ​diverse students turn exploration into knowledge. Most, if not all, of the students in the school, come from low-income homes. Many students only have the learning resources found at school, so providing the best learning experience is key to achievement.

The learning resources available at school means so much to student success.

Having the ability to provide diverse experiences along with a sense of community learning ensure every student has the opportunity for success. Being part of a school community and feeling like you belong can increase learning. Engaging activities, resources, and a community learning environment help guide the active learners in our class to build skills for a lifetime.

My Project

Lamination, lamination, lamination! Using lamination will extend the use of our materials and allow students to use hands-on​ without sacrificing the materials. Having a classroom lamination system will help provide student materials quickly and easily. Unfortunately, our school does not have a lamination system for teachers to use. Lamination offers easy cleaning so classroom guides, nameplates, and posters can successfully be reused.

A lamination system will offer our class the opportunity to waste fewer materials by cleaning guides, nameplates, and posters so that we do not sacrifice important class materials.

This lamination system will help our class be “green” and reduce our carbon footprint through less waste of materials.
