Teacher Problem #4
How to deal with all those dried up markers!
Here’s an idea I had in my classroom to deal with this. First, I attached all the marker lids in a row, so students have a place to put their markers when they are done. Then, I assign a group “inspector” at cleanup time to check each bin to make sure the lids are on TIGHT!
Here’s what it looks like:
The markers will eventually run out, but the new replacements will fit in the same lids.
It’s also very easy to grab the board quickly if you need to use the felts with another activity.
I started using this method for my large white board felts as well, and they’ve lasted all year!
