OMG Have You Seen These!

I did a workshop for kindergarten teachers at my school on Wednesday and my friends Krista and Alicia came to support me. I love these two amazing teachers. They brought me a surprise (they always come with gifts) and this one blew me away! Have you seen these? When did Crayola come out with dry erase crayons? My class adored watching me use them to model drawing a plant. Imagine using a black dry erase board for this. Target sells the crayons. You better grab some fast.

I love these! I am on a focus group for Crayola and they sent them to me at the beginning of the year, so we have been using them since then. My firsties love them too and I don't have to worry about dry erase markers going dry or my chisel tip being smooshed because of them pressing too hard.

Thanks Sarah,
I am so glad you like my blog. I am having so much fun doing this.
I better get back to my classroom and start focusing on the curriculum! This is way too addictive!

I love this website! You are such a leader in our district. Our kindergarten teachers would not have survived these past 9 years without you!! sincerely, Helen Tross, Curriculum and Instruction, Santa Ana USD

It is so nice that you are appreciated by someone in your district. Sometimes I feel like really good teachers can get over looked in their own district when others outside the district really respect them!!

ANYWAY, I went a purchased some of these crayons!!! I can't wait to try them. Thanks for your post. I may have missed them otherwise. =)
