    Mom2mthj You're right! It might be more practical to purchase replacements!

    Haha, I lost the ability to resell a $40 set of flashcards when my littlest spilled a cup of warm almond protein milk at the kitchen table between phonics lessons. Whatever that milk has it it could be used as glue, because within 10 seconds, 50% of the cards were so stuck together, they ripped the faces off each other. I might have cried...or muttered all manner of things under my breath. Anyway, now we have a rule that there are ZERO liquids of any kind allowed around flashcards. My kids know it, and I will dig out my ripped, warped, ugly mangle of flashcards to show them if they protest. We don't laminate around here, partly because the glare created can be a little annoying and it will double the thickness of what is already feet of flashcards in this house, and mostly because MP cards are quite durable.

    I did laminate the Timeline cards for the wall. I know that they don't survive tape very well, and this solved that issue.

    momgineer I totally just made that up, but I love it too! Can you tell my oldest is a senior next year? I've started thinking like this lately. I know you know.

    Call me the Queen of Extra.😂

    I don't do recitation, but I laminate the flashcards. Laminating has saved more than one set of my cards from an untimely death via coffee spill.

    Another non-laminator here! I also just buy a new set if we lose enough between kids. I used to pinch pennies, but now I pinch time instead.

    Love it! Mary was the queen of laminating flash cards, but I never have. If it is relaxing to you to run paper through a laminator it won’t hurt, but it won’t help unless you have some really hard use planned for them. I would probably buy a replacement set before I started laminating. The flash cards are really sturdy and I like the rounded corner to keep them lined up. Loss is my biggest issue and laminating doesn’t keep them from walking away or ending up under a rug. I used to hole punch my old ones, but now I just use ziplocks so I can shuffle them around. Enjoy your time doing something else (and be happy they already come ready to go in a nice stack - they used to come in sheets that had to be punched apart).

    I have four kiddos and haven’t laminated any of the cards. I just hole punch them and keep them on rings. So far they’ve held up really well.

    started a topic To laminate, or not?

    To laminate, or not?

    I have only one student. Is it worth it to laminate the flash cards for third grade? I sure can. I just wanted to check before I actually did it, because there are quite a few.
Working...
