Are you looking for some fresh ideas to jazz up your whiteboard? Let’s face it, sometimes it feels like we live in our classrooms so we may as well make them appealing, yet still keep them practical. Adding whiteboard accessories can help make your whiteboard more visually captivating and also add a new level of functionality.

The BEST Dry Erase Erasers

I know you feel my pain! We use our dry erase boards ALL THE TIME which means we also use our dry erase erasers and markers quite frequently. Don’t even get me started about the markers. Seriously, they dry out way too quickly. Yes, some of that is operator error on the students part but some just get so light that I can’t even read what my students have written.

To make the situation worse, the markers don’t erase well…and that’s if the students actually have an eraser left to use that isn’t so full of ink that it smears more than it erases. Ugh! The erasers are gross…and they get gross quick. I was on a hunt for the BEST dry erase erasers.

Teacher Tricks- DIY Containers

DIY Containers
Are you ready to switch up your theme in your classroom or just in need of some additional storage containers? These DIY containers are today’s Teacher Trick. These are the storage solution you’ve been looking for in your classroom.

In my classroom, I like everything to have a place. If not, it winds up on the floor! I can’t tell you how many pencils find their way to the floor and go unclaimed each day! To help combat this problem, I try to provide storage solutions for my students so that all materials have a designated place.

Celebrating Birthdays in the Classroom

Back when I was a student, celebrating birthdays meant bringing in homemade cupcakes to share with the class. Now, celebrating birthdays in the classroom can no longer involve food, let alone homemade baked goods. So what’s a teacher to do? How can you help your kiddos to feel special on their birthday while keeping to a budget and without the celebration interrupting your classroom schedule too drastically?

Let the Celebration Begin

In my classroom, our celebration begins when the “birthday slide” appears on the smartboard.
