Show Me iPad App

Our AT specialist showed me how to really use this app today, very excited to use it this year! Take a picture of something in the classroom (educational display-word wall) and you can circle the words and say them, recording it as a video and publishing it so parents can access it.

Laminator Giveaway!

Ironic timing that this giveaway is out, as my personal laminator (from 2005!) "ate" a sheet that I didn't put in correctly yesterday. I unlugged it and used tweezers to get it out but it had some battle wounds!

This is a great blog as well:

Personal Laminators

An essential classroom tool for me:

My personal laminator (Duck brand)

I purchase the 50 pack Scotch thermal laminating sheets and whatever I laminate through this machine is so much more durable than the big laminator, especially when I use construction paper or cardstock. It is perfect for centers materials!

I also decided to use it to laminate my Fundations large sound cards. They get so much daily use and I want to prevent wear and tear.
