Oh it's a Happy Day in the Schuda Household today. Not only did my t-shirt from A plus Images arrive in the mail, but I bought myself a laminator at Target! (Cue happy dance!)
Through the power of Instagram I saw that my friend @susyinsa had posted a picture of a laminator she had just purchased at Target!
#truestory- I literally was thinking about buying a laminator today. In fact I was going to post a picture on Instagram asking if anyone had any good recommendations.
Shortly after I saw her post, I raced over to my local Target and cautiously approached the school supply aisle. That section of the store is every person for them self. ;)
There was ONE lamintor left! I snatched that box right up and gripped it tight as I made my way to the check out line. (Now, I could go on to tell you the other school supplies I managed to collect on the way to the check out line, but I'll leave that for another post)
Of course with any new toy I had to try it immediately. The timing actually worked out perfectly because I wanted to try to make my new dismissal signs.
In the past I have always done the dismissal poster. I've been wanting to try something different, and on Pinterest I have been seeing some great pictures of teachers using ribbon to display their signs.
I wanted to give it a try.
I laminated each dismissal sign.
I cut out each sign and then cut a piece of ribbon for each sign.
I glued ribbon to the back of each sign.
I plan to write each student's name on a clothespin and then clip their name on the dismissal sign during the kindergarten meet and greet.
I like this idea because if a student's dismissal changes I can quickly switch the clip to the new sign.
If you are interested in these dismissal signs you can click the picture below. I have included 3 different versions inside the pack.
Thanks for stopping by. Now if you will please excuse me I am going to continue to laminate everything I own. ;)
