What are some of your "must haves" in your classroom?  I have MANY as I am sure you do too. We all get used to the items that make our room more smoothly and efficiently.  One of my favorite items are these:

These are dry erase paddles from Kleenslate . I saw them at a Texas First Grade Teachers Conference in 2007 and had to have them.  They are a bit pricey, but so worth it!!!  Once I showed them to my principal and how we used them in the classroom, she ordered a set for every classroom.  They are AWESOME and the kids love to use them.  It also makes it easier for fast responses when teaching in a large group and the kids do not feel so intimidated about getting a wrong answer. I used them with my first graders and now use them with my third graders. LOVE them! My 3rd graders will go grab one when they are working on a computer program or playing an educational board game to work out math problems without having to waste paper.

  1. Super cute and wonderful idea! Much easier to show answer with paddles than a bulky whiteboard!
