If your classroom is anything like mine, you have already gone through all of the tissues the students brought in at the beginning of the school year! I have had to put out a plea to families to send more tissues to school. In addition to the excess of runny noses this year (mine and the students), everyone in the room is guilty of using tissues to clean off dry-erase boards.
I do lots of different activities using dry-erase boards and grabbing a tissue to wipe off the writing is easier than walking to the white board to grab the eraser. But, this means that each time we do a whole class dry-erase board activity, we use a minimum of 7 tissues. Today, I finally decided to whip up a creation I saw on Pinterest.
I grabbed a handful of extra yellow pom-poms from a math work station, some glue, and my dry-erase markers and created built-in erasers! I can’t wait to try these out with the kids tomorrow! Ideally, we will go through tissues at a much slower rate and hopefully, not lose any marker caps in the process!
What are some of your favorite Pinterest creations for the classroom?
