Yesterday, I had a very productive afternoon I cut and laminated 30 action cards.
They are my "new experiment"... (more on this topic later)
Yes, it's hard work, and it can take us hours to finish, but I really think it's worth it!
Laminated flashcards can last forever or, at least, for many teaching years.
After laminating, you can write on the flashcards with whiteboard pens and easily clean them afterwords.
The kids can hold them, use them, and even play with them without your heart starting to scream "Oh my God, Oh my God, my dear cards won't survive this lesson!" :D
If you don't have a laminating machine yet I advise you to buy it asap. Mine cost about 20 € (at Lidl) and it's still "rolling" after almost 10 years.
Keep up the teaching frenzy ;)
