Top 5 Teacher Must-Haves: #3 (FREE Download)

Each day this week I am sharing one of my top 5 teacher must-have items. These are items that make my teacher life easier, my classroom more organized, and my time more efficient. So join me each day to see another must-have item! In case you missed the first two must-haves, you can see them {HERE} and {HERE}. Edited to add: You can see the other blog posts in this series {HERE} and {HERE}.

If you're anything like me, you will do anything to make life easier when it comes to making copies for your class. These dry-erase pockets have been a lifesaver in my classroom. My students use them every single day for multiple uses.

We have a short 15-minute time frame where the students are in the classroom at 8:15, but school doesn't officially start until 8:30. Students are rolling in anytime within those 15 minutes, some with breakfast in their hands. During this chaotic precious time, we do a morning work page that focuses on our number sense and also our language skills for the week with two sentences to re-write correctly. Well those copies would add up quickly each day! The solution is to slip the morning work page into the dry-erase pockets so that we can use and reuse again and again. Win-Win! You can download this Morning Work page for FREE right {HERE}. 

Let's talk recording sheets for ELA and/or math centers. Those copies can also add up quickly! I don't print or make copies of the recording sheets for each student for multiple days. That would take forever and use so much paper! I simply print 3-5 recording sheets (depending on the group size) and slip them into the dry-erase pockets and students use them over and over again. So easy!! These recording pages are from my Money Activities pack found {HERE}.

You can grab a 10-pack of these neon colored dry-erase pockets on Amazon (affiliate link) {HERE}! I have enough for every student to have one pocket for morning work and also enough for each of my math and ELA centers to use as recording sheets. They are super durable and such a time-saver!

I hope you join me tomorrow for #4 in my Top 5 Teacher Must-Haves blog series. You can catch it here on the blog, on my Facebook Page, or on Instagram. See you soon!
