So my mother and I decided to have a lamination party!
Why...? Because I had to laminate a lot of stuff! Originally I was going to go to School House, but it was a little expensive for what I wanted done. Therefore, my dad took home the lamination machine he had a work. We spent quite a bit of money purchasing the lamination sheets, but it was worth it! If I was going to spend 3 hours die-cutting fish for VBS, then I was going to spend the extra hour to laminate them. That way, I could use the fish in the future. I also had some school things I wanted laminated as well!
Mom read the instructions... I snapped the photos...
We had over 100 sheets to laminate...
And then MORE VBS things...notice most of things things are water animals, but there are some random coins that I needed laminated.
Then I laminated my book markers. I will use these to divide up parts of my library by theme. I used the "Learning Curve" cartridge to cut out the letters. Theses are some of the themes that I came up with. I will be teaching forest, food, ABC and plants this fall in Janesville!
I also did blue ones! The colors mean nothing, I just picked colors that I liked! (Actually the blue is from last years VBS). The themes I will be teaching this upcoming school year in this bundle are: fall, bugs, ocean, winter, farm, Earth Day, Eric Carle and school!
In the end...we had a pretty large stack! Take a look!
The next day, mom and I went down to Janesville. We cut up all of the fish, book dividers, coins, etc. To give you an idea of how many there were... look below. That was six inches! It only took 3 hours to cut them all up...
