Reusable Dry Erase Pockets

I have just discovered a huge time {and paper} saver... reusable dry erase pockets!  Many of you probably remember a post I did awhile back about my amazing Filetastic.  Well, I'm back with another great product from  The wonderful people at Mardel have sent me a few different products to use in my classroom-- one of those products is their reusable dry erase pockets.

These pockets are amazing!  All I have to do is print out 5 copies of the recording sheet for any station, stuff it in the pocket, and it's ready to go.  {It saves me time and paper!}  Some of my kiddos get so upset when our station time is up and they haven't finished their recording sheet.  Then, we have to deal with them storing the paper and attempting to do it on their own at another time... what a mess!  That problem was eliminated this week since I was using my new reusable dry erase pockets.  When the timer went off they simply showed me the work they had completed and then erased it.  {By the way, these erase so nicely... you don't even have to rub super hard and it actually comes off!}

I'm super excited to put these to use in my classroom in the fall.  I have enough for each student to have one so at the beginning of the year I'll just print out a tracer sheet with each child's name and they can go to town practicing!  This will save so much time and paper.  Yes, please!

Mardel is so wonderful that they are offering 20% off any of their reusable dry erase pockets with the promo code DRYERASE20.  The code is good until June 24 and is good on all four reusable pockets they offer.  They even have individual pockets for sale so you can just get enough for your small group or get a box for your whole class!  Go check it out and don't forget to use the promo code DRYERASE20 at checkout to save 20% on your reusable dry erase pockets.

I'm also working with Mardel to bring you a great giveaway opportunity for fellow education bloggers!  The best part about this giveaway is that you get to pick your own prizes from the Education department on  Click the image below to learn more about this amazing opportunity.

Teacher Appreciation Giveaway

I just love that teacher appreciation week is here... it's always a nice little push to get through all of this end of year testing and craziness.

I am so excited to be sharing this giveaway with you!  Here's what one of you wonderful teachers can win this week... a Target gift card, cute tote bag, and 5 great books for your enjoyment.  A.W.E.S.O.M.E.  :)

*Do you see the bag?  "We like BIG BOOKS and we cannot lie."
LOL!  I know you're singing that song now in you're head.

I'm currently reading "Love and Other Subjects" by Kathleen Shoop.  I was immediately sucked into this book and look forward to any free moment when I can pick it up again.  It's about a young teacher trying to navigate through the struggles and experiences of that first year in the classroom and find love at the same time.  Good read!  I'll post more once I finish reading it.  You can follow Kathleen's author pages here: Twitter and Facebook.
