My Students

Wouldn't it be nice if some of your childhood masterpieces could have been protected?


I am a second grade teacher, working with a group of wonderful, hard working children. Unfortunately, we are located in an area, where it is sometimes difficult to get the resources that we need. Just about all the children in our class are working far below grade level, and receive free lunch.

My Project

It is my job to move them up and prepare them for the next grade. I am up for the challenge and I welcome it. However, I need your help. The children spend a great deal of time working independently or in groups in different centers every morning. They work hard and try their best in centers. I try to create centers that meet their needs. The students enjoy them. However, I find myself recreating the same centers over and over again, and not able to create new ones. I am asking for a Classroom Laminating Machine and pouches to protect the centers that are created giving the children the opportunity to revisit the tasks as needed. I will then be able to provide the children with new centers to meet their needs. I would also like to protect the terrific work that is produced in our classroom. Most importantly, we will not waste paper. Instead of making multiple copies of the the same activity, the children can just reuse the laminated copy.

Your donations will help increase the level of our skills in the classroom.

It will provide them with the opportunities to practice their reading and writing and math skills. Your donation will help me help the children in creating centers, protecting the centers so the children can have more materials that will help them. I would also love to laminate some of their best work to look back on. Thank your for your help and I look forward to sharing their experiences with you.
