I like it, because it is so thick and doesn't bend. I know I can give it to my students and it will last for many years (hopefully!).
So today, I decided to laminate some items with this amazing lamination, including my Check for Understanding bookmarks, my Voice Levels Posters, and my Classroom Expectations.
I also plan to laminate some book luggage tags I created today that you can see here. This year I have decided to spend some extra money and laminate these tags with thick lamination and put clear mailing labels with the students' names on them. This will allow me to reuse the tags for multiple years, which I think I will like.
I just tried printing one of these tags, and they're a little large... I'm going to work on that and upload some new ones when I get them fixed. They are perfectly fine the way they are, but they are a little large for what I plan to use them for.
I also got in contact with Michelle from The 3a.m. Teacher to help me with some freebie frames she had posted. I want to give her the BIGGEST shout out, because she was SO helpful! I saw this freebie frame, and wanted to modify it a little (by filling in the middle with a solid color). She was so quick and had my requested color, plus many more colors and FONTS done for me within an hour. This girl is AMAZING!
So, I made a make-shift table bucket with her frame, and I LOVE IT! I can't wait to officially finish it (and by that I mean use modge podge and hot glue instead of tape) and display it on Monday. Until then, here are a few preview shots:
What do you think of them? I had originally planned on using a solid background, but thought that looked a little boring. I may end up making one bucket of each and then deciding!
Also, in my frame madness today I created some labels for the oh-so-cute "Highlight Your Name" buckets I see everywhere. You can get those by clicking the picture below.
Let me know what you think! And be sure to check out both my TN and TPT shop as I have added several more items!
