a new laminator!!!!!
We have a big one at school, and it works well BUT I need to turn my items in for the one person in the building who's allowed to use it AND wait until she has a big pile and some time. Well, sometimes a girl just wants her laminating a little faster.
This Fellowes Saturn 125 is AWESOME!
When I turn it on it took less than 5 minutes to heat up then beeped to get my attention. I was able to choose between 3 and 5 mil laminate and it heated to just the right temperature.
If you've never laminated before it's easy peasy. Just slide the page you want to laminate into the pouch and slide it into the laminator.
It will feed itself and come out the other side. VOILA!!!
It was so easy! If you would like your own laminator check out mybinding.com. They're easy to work with and your teaching materials that you spend TIME and MONEY on will last a long time.
What was I laminating you ask?
I've been working away at a new unit that focuses on teen numbers and was getting a little bogged down so took a little break to use these cute ice cream graphics by Graphics From the Pond. (Yes, you've seen me use them before!)
It's a math work station perfect for the beginning of the year. Students will either roll or spin (your choice) tally and graph. You can find this activity at my TPT store.
I'll send a copy to the first 2 followers who comment on this post. In your comment, I'd love to know an activity that you might like to see included in my teen numbers math work station unit :)
