Protection Is Key

Help me give my students laminating pouches in two sizes to protect our projects.

My Students

I teach in a low socioeconomic school in Southern California where all students receive free lunch. My students are special because they are in a bilingual kindergarten class. Seventy percent of our day is in Spanish and 30% of our day is in English. I have 24 students with different needs, personalities, and learning modalities. Most of my students are English language learners, but I do have English speakers who want to learn how to read and write in two languages. How awesome is that?

My Project

My students need laminating pouches in two sizes, regular 81/2 by 11 and legal size. It is really easy for little ones to ruin their work and/or projects and I want them to be able to take them home with pride and for them to be able to save them as long as they wish and the only way to do this is to protect their work. I also use these pouches to protect all their center practice work, so it can last all year long. It saves time and more importantly, it saves trees from all the paper we save.
