Feeling a little tipsy

A few quick, helpful tips ...

#1 - Hot glue gun + bottom of math charts = less slippage and less frustrated children.

Dots of hot glue around the edges of the chart give just enough "tack" to keep it from sliding off to Timbuktu with the littlest bump from a sleeve. And life is SO much better when your blue and red strips are not unwittingly strewn across the floor!

#2 - Round the corners of your cards. This can go for any vocab/reading classification cards that are used frequently in the classroom. Rounding each corner (with scissors after lamination) helps when the children are replacing the cards in their pouch - corners are less likely to get caught and bent in the process.

You can purchase a corner rounder at a craft shop, office supply store or scrapbooking store for about $5 that makes quick work of corners~fun for kids too!
