How To Make Reusable Graph Paper And Practice Sheets

Hey Special Needs Homeschoolers! 

Let’s save some money and make some reusable graph paper and other practice sheets!

During Math Season our house seems to go through graph paper like its going out of style.  We use it a lot in Science too.  My kids also like to use it to keep math computations straight, so they don’t accidentally get lost or forget a step.  Not that graph paper isn’t easy to come by, because you can literally print it off the internet.  However, my kids go through tons of graph paper that they literally throw away a few minutes later.  This can really add up.  So instead, we have created reusable graph paper for them to figure math computations.  This way, when they are finished with a problem, they don’t have to throw it away.  They can reuse it!  This process works great for making reusable graph paper and practice sheets or just your personal whiteboard.

The Instructions

This is so super simple to do.  There is really only two steps required.  Print the appropriate size graph paper, and then laminate it.  This process also works for practice sheets such as print letters, numbers, shapes, or cursive.  A great place to get free printable graph paper is print-graph-paper.com.

Laminate the Graph Paper or Practice Sheet

This can be done with a regular laminating machine or by purchasing self-laminating sheets.

Either one works quite nicely.  As you can imagine, the regular laminating sheets are much cheaper, but also require the purchase of a laminating machine.  We do a lot of laminating, so for us, the purchase made sense.  If this will be a once in while kind of project for you, then I would suggest the self-laminating sheets.

If you are tired of going through practice sheets or graph paper faster than you can replenish them, then try making your own reusable ones.  Reusable graph paper and practice sheets are super simple to make, and and can literally be made in minutes.
