DIY Classroom: Plastic Worksheet Covers

Worksheet covers/sleeves are great for learning centers.  Students can slide a worksheet inside of the sleeve, write on it with a dry erase marker then erase it so that another student can use it.  This tutorial shows how to create this for the classroom for just under $5.  It will be enough to create a few of them for your classroom.

What You Will Need
  • Plastic Sheet Covering (It is located in the furniture fabric section of a fabric store)
  • A ruler or yard stick
  • duct tape

Step 1:
Worksheets are typically 8 1/2 x 11 inches in sizes.  To give a little extra room, I folded the plastic in half.  Then, I cut a 10 x 12 inch rectangle from the plastic.  Folding the plastic fist creates a front a back portion.

Step 2:
Tape both of the sides while leaving an opening at the top.

This is the finished product.  Visit Literacy and Math Ideas for additional money saving tips.
