I'm borrowing from a former post, $10 and 10 Minutes.
Like Speech Time Fun, I also love to use dry-erase pockets in lieu of laminating. Not that I've ever put off preparation or anything...
My cousin, Lisa, a Kg teacher, shared the idea to hot glue pom-poms on the ends for erasers. By this time of the year, some of the "erasers" are a little dirty and barely hanging on, but I think the majority will last the whole school year.
Go check out March: Dry Erase for more ideas!
