Tomorrow my eldest will begin Grade 1. At the end of last year parents were asked to attend a brief meeting with the Year 1 teacher. The meeting went well, until we were all given 5 scrap books each and asked to cover them with contact. A ripple of panic washed over the room. “Don’t worry if you get any bubbles or wrinkles” the teacher kindly said. How can we not worry about bubbles in contact? Isn’t the number of bubbles and wrinkles inversely proportional to how how much my child can learn? Or something like that.
The video below shows my method for covering books. It may not be a terribly crafty post, but I hope it is an informative one. If, like me, you are facing another 10-12 years of covering school books, you might as well get off to a good start.
Apologies to the parents who have already spent tonight wrestling with books and sticky plastic, I really did mean to get this out a week ago….
