We are really enjoying our K4 Curriculum for homeschool. Since we travel it is nice that all of my material is on my little thumb drive and I just print out my sheets weekly. When we first started it in January, I bought laminating paper and laminated our sheets by hand. That got so tedious! A laminator for homeschool is what I really needed.
So I finally decided to invest in a Scotch Thermal Laminator. I wish I had done it sooner! It makes homeschool preschool so much easier. Plus, I can now use dry erase pens and reuse this curriculum one day when the baby boy gets to be 4 year old. Bonus!
In addition to the K4 Curriculum, we are still using our Teach My Preschool Kit and love that too.It is compact enough that I can easily travel with the entire kit. Most days my Princess can’t get enough of school. She wants to do more than our curriculum and kit offers, so I let her work on PreK workbooks too. She loves learning – and I love that!
We are currently introducing her to sight words. My goal is for her to be reading by the time she is 5 in December. It amazes me how quickly she is memorizing her sight words. She now knows a, I, to, do, he, it, and this last week we worked on of, on.
Do you use a laminator for homeschool?
What other tools make homeschooling easier?
Since I am just starting, I love all the tips I can get.

Way to go! You will be shocked by how quickly she will be reading books!
I want a lamination machine SO BADLY!!!!
We love it. I need to buy that spray that erases though. The dry erase markers don’t wipe off the lamination paper very well.
I hope she is reading soon. She wants to so badly.

I use good ole contact paper. Would love to utilize a laminator. I could think of many reasons in our homeschool to use one!
I had some Amazon GCs from a couple sponsored posts, so I decided to just buy one. I am glad. It is so much less stressful. I kept messing up the laminating paper (contact paper) and there would be folds and bubbles. Now, the machine does it all for me 😉 I think, Scotch should be paying me for all this advertising! LOL!
One of these would be super handy, I would Love to have one

I am not a home schooler, but I have the utmost respect for parents that can.
We don’t homeschool but I gave my MIL a laminator years ago for Christmas and we get so much use out of that thing!
It would really be a great gift. I love ours. 😉 Thanks for stopping by!
We don’t homeschool but I’d still love to have a laminator!
