It’s hard to believe back to school season is already here. While we’ll be getting our kids ready to start a new school year over the next few weeks, teachers will also be busy preparing for the year ahead. From creating lesson plans to setting up the classroom, teachers do a lot of work before and during the school year to help our kids fill their minds with as much knowledge as possible. Having great tools, like a laminator, to use in their planning helps make teachers’ very important jobs a little bit easier.
The Motherhood teamed up with Fellowes Laminators to help parents and teachers kick off the back-to-school season with ideas for staying organized and making learning even more fun by preserving documents, like schedules, calendars, flash cards, charts, certificates, classroom decorations and more.
Fellowes gave 20 moms a Saturn2 95 laminator and asked them to share some their tips and ideas for the many great things laminators can do to help make this new school year fantastic in the classroom and at home.
Crystal from Simply Being Mommy laminated colorful notes to slip into her kids’ lunchboxes during the school year.
Michelle from Honesty and Truly created a checklist for her kids to fill out as they go through their morning routine before leaving for school.
Marisa from Pennywise Mama made preschool worksheets to help her little ones practice writing and counting.
The whole group seemed to love the Saturn2 95 laminator’s helpful features like the HeatGuardTM Technology that keeps heat inside the laminator so it is comfortable to touch and safe for kids in the classroom and at home. The Advanced Temperature Control for hot and cold laminating, release lever to prevent jams and the wide opening for larger documents were also big hits among the moms and teachers.
While a Fellowes laminator is a fantastic back-to-school tool, teachers are the real superstars of the classroom. Through September 30, Fellowes is holding the “Celebration of Superstar Teachers” contest, and they want your help in recognizing a special teacher in your community who goes above and beyond for his or her students.
The top 25 teachers will receive a laminator education prize package from Fellowes, and five grand prize teachers will also win a classroom organization prize package. Nominating an exceptional teacher is easy. Just head over to the Fellowes Facebook page and fill out the entry form. Don’t forget to vote for your favorite teacher in the “View and Vote” section.
