Not another back to school post? What the heck? Am I the one getting all back to schooly too early? Maybe so. But this is for good reason. I just got my very own laminator and one of you lucky things is going to get one too.
In just a couple weeks, I’ll be back at it ~ back at the Igo with my amazing colleagues setting up our office and planning my schedule. The beginning of the school year is always a fresh start and a new beginning. New kids, new teachers to work with, new classrooms to work in, new projects to plan. And if you’re a teacher heading back to school and you haven’t hit up Pinterest yet, you’d better get on it. Pinterest is AMAZING for lesson planning, classroom organization and even keeping track of your routines, binders and classroom centers. You should also check out my Back to School Board I created!
Laminating at school is the pits. It involves a walk down the hall, a sign up sheet, heating time and planning. If you’re going to laminate something at school, it has to be planned and ready to go. Not anymore.
I just received my very own Fellowes Saturn2 95 laminator (valued at $160). No more excuses! I can laminate anything at anytime right at home. How awesome is that?
This thing is small and easy to use. I can just tuck it away and pull it out whenever I’m feeling inspired to create something that will last. And I love the fact that I can use it for our family too – for schedules, charts, certificates, art work, schoolwork and even photos! It’s like a little slice of heaven! Check out all these amazing features found in the Fellowes Saturn2 95 Laminator:
- HeatGuard™ Technology: Double-walled insulation keeps heat inside so laminator is comfortable to touch, making it safe for homes and classrooms with children
- Advanced Temperature Control: Hot and cold laminating capabilities ensure consistent, smooth results every time
- Release Lever: Permits easy removal or re-centering of stalled pouches to prevent jams
- Laminates up to 9.5? wide documents
Since Aidan is headed to kindergarten in a few weeks, I made him a name tag of his first and last name. He still has a lot of work to do in the name writing department and I love the fact that we can now practice this at home in a fun way. All I did was laminate a plain sentence strip for him to practice writing his name with a dry-erase marker. He can write on it and wipe it off! After he masters his name, we can practice the names of everyone in the family and his sight words! SO COOL! I know Emily will be into it too. She can’t believe we have our very own laminator.
