First off is my new printer. It really isn't any thing that great. But, my super nice laser printer died and I've been living off a crappy $20 ink jet for too long. It's really hard to create cute things for school with that kind of equipment. This sucker had really good reviews and it scans and prints. What else do I need???
I ordered this thermal laminator at the beginning of the summer. When it arrived I realized I needed a new printer. The things I print out with my current operation are not worthy of this laminator. Every school I've ever worked at has had a laminator for teachers to use. I assume my new school is the same. However, there are some jobs that are smaller and/or need more sturdy lamination. Plus, some days I get verrrrrry impatient and I can't wait until I get to school to laminate. I can't wait to use it!!!!
Next, we have my new sticker maker. I can already see how useful this puppy is going to be. Labels for everything!!!! I'm seriously looking forward to make everything sticky (well, everything 5 inches or less)!!!
Finally, I purchased this scanner back in May. I plan on using it along with the classroom organizer app/program from Booksource. I think this is going to be awesome. My hopes are that this increases accountability (I will know exactly what books each student has) and that it will help them remember where to return the books (you can type in locations for all of your books as you inventory them). You can also use an iphone or and ipad instead of the scanner. However, I will not let those 5th grade paws to touch my personal ipone/ipad.
