I LOVE LOVE LOVE your activities! For someone who has been doing this for 16 years your ideas are just great to get me excited about my materials again. I need to find a way to buy my color ink cheaper. I print some at school and some at home. Printing too much at school might get me in trouble. I hope I don’t sound rude at all but just wanted to give you my input. When it comes to cutting the cards two times…once before laminating and once after I find it much easier to cut when they are straight edges and not curved. I know…how could I complain when you do all this work. Hope you know I LOVE everything…just wanted to share the thought. Please keep the ideas coming. Thanks to you therapy is so easy to plan this year!! Can’t wait to buy lots of goodies from TPT on Monday. 🙂
What I do with all these AWESOME materials by Jenna and others is print a “blocker” page (Like a page full of “XXXX” or any other symbol) through the copier on the reverse side in black/white so you can’t see through the regular paper, then laminate and cut only once. Granted they don’t have the colorful edges that look nice and make them easier to pick up, but saves me so much time with all the cutting/gluing/etc that I don’t really mind. And it’s not like my students really notice. I do agree with cutting out circles though, or the ones where the boxes are all spaced out. Makes my hands hurt, but I’m thankful to have such great stuff to use in tx so it’s allllll gravy. 🙂
And thanks Jenna, I just picked up all the winter activities today and am excited to spend this weekend getting them all made up! You’re a rock star!
I totally agree with Jenni! I love ALL of your materials, but it makes the cutting process much easier when the cards are completely square and not rounded so I can just cut straight lines. It also speeds up the process when the cards don’t have spaces in between them but instead just share a line (if that makes sense). Again, not complaining at all, just throwing in my two sense! Keep up the great work!
I purchased the expressive language kit today — thank you so much for all of your hard work on this! 🙂
