i was lucky that my classroom can equipped with a lovely set of white boards that match my classroom theme. today, i took to an idea that i stole from Pinterest, adding poms to the ends of markers for erasers! I stuck with my color theme (green, gray, black, white) and gave each marker a sweet new hair do (i think they all look like they have afros). i also made sure to stick with black. although i have a huge array of colored markers, i didn't want to deal with the fighting and whining over colors (sometimes you get what you get and you don't throw a fit isn't good enough for every student.)
and ta-da! can't wait to use these for quick assessment, practicing, and more!
