Must Have Monday

I am linking up with Blog Hoppin' all week.  Hop on over and link up :)

Avery Heavy Duty Sheet Protectors
I use these babies for almost everything.  They are in my lesson plan binder to hold everything in there.  They are in my unit binders to hold all of my materials.  They are even taped to the wall to hold instructions, schedules, signs, etc.  My favorite way to use them is as lamination in a pinch.  Just throw a worksheet or activity inside, tape the top shut and use a dry erase marker.  I usually print on cardstock and doubleside them.  Best of all, you can store them in a binder when you are done :)

Heavy Duty Scotch Tape
LOVE this for laminating in a pinch and so much more.  It's super thick and works for almost anything.  I especially love it on my clammy basement walls!

Mr. Sketch Scented Markers
Can't live without them.  I use them for ALL of my anchor charts, shared writing, etc.  The colors are so bright and vibrant, and the smell is divine!

Velcro
I use this stuff for EVERYTHING.  I have it in dots, strips, squares and industrial strength and can't get enough!  I actually just bought some more of it today!
Personal Laminating Machine
I have had my little laminator for three or four years and it is still going strong.  I love to buy the 5mm lamination sheets to make all of my games and anything else that will be handled a lot.  I also use the 3mm for anything else (because it's cheaper!).  I buy those at BJ's, which is way cheaper than anywhere else I've found.  Also, I just found a great deal for the photo sized sheets of 5mm at Lakeshore.  100 pouches for $9.99 plus 20% off.  Gotta love it!
