My students need a classroom laminator and laminating pouches to make our centers reusable and save our resources.

My Students

My students come to class daily ready to work and play. Parents work hard to try to give their students everything they can. We are located in a rural section of the foothills of North Carolina. Our school is a Title I funded school with 100% of our students receiving free breakfast and lunch. It is my goal that every child enjoys learning and grows to be a very successful citizen. The best way for this to be done is including the family in education. It takes a village to raise a child.

My Project

Have you ever wanted to enjoy a game that someone else was playing? In our classroom, my students love to work in centers. In these centers I have created some learning activities (games as the students see them) to help students increase their knowledge. Students need constant repetition of activities and making all these items every time gets expensive. If our classroom had a laminator and laminating sheets, students could complete the task with dry erase makers and wipe them clean for the next person. Laminating would make our manipulatives reusable and ensure that they can stand the constant reuse.

Fred Rogers- "Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning, But for children play is serious learning.

Play is really the work of childhood."
