Fun Markers!

I don't know about your kiddos but mine L.O.V.E. markers!
I don't let them use them all the time which probably helps make them "special". There are certain projects I let them use markers on. But I found some cool markers for this next year that I know my firsties will go crazy for. I know I blogged about some of these before but here is an update. You can click on each picture for more information from Amazon.com.
These are cool. You write with one end then trace over it with the other end and it changes colors.
These are the BEST smelly markers! There are other brands out there too.
My team mate Amanda showed these to me. We will have fun stamping our spelling words in Daily 5 with these.

I bought all mine at Wal-Mart but I found the Mr. Sketch were cheaper on Amazon.com.
I let my kiddos use the 'special' markers for spelling and sight word practice. I made a little sheet to go with it. I made it blank so you can write in your own words before you print it for the kids. Here's a picture.
And here's a free download. Just click on the picture for a PDF.
I just looked at the calendar. I really shouldn't have. I only have 3 1/2 weeks of summer left. AHHHH! Mixed feeling about that. I love teaching and miss my students but I really LOVE my summers. Some of my 3 1/2 weeks will be spent re-organizing my files and getting my room ready. And of course, SHOPPING which I've been doing ALL summer. Hubby, I think likes it better when I'm in school. I don't swipe my cards as much.
Have a great day!

YES! My students love markers. So do I! I have a few boxes of Mr. Sketch. My only complaint about them, is I never use them for anchor charts because the color fades out. Especially, the pink. After awhile, you can't see it at all. Weird, huh?!
Thanks for the cute freebie!

Mr. Sketch...a childhood friend of mine and now my students' friend.
SMILES!

I used to love Mr. Sketch markers!! They were the best. I only let my students use markers for certain activities too (much to their dismay!)
