Flip Chart Markers

Who says teachers don't have favorites?

I do!  Ticonderoga pencils.  Binder clips.  Huge binders with the rings attached to the back cover so you don't have to flip the papers as you close it.  Flair pens.  That one ink pen that I got at some conference that if it is ever out of ink, I won't know what to write with anymore.

And then there's Sharpie Flip Chart Markers.  These are my new favorite.  I started this year with Mr. Sketch markers that my school supplies and the kids think those are so fun, and I didn't have to buy them so it was wonderful.

But then I discovered these other markers and now I can't look back.  Plus the pink Mr. Sketch writing has completely disappeared from the sunlight on my charts so they look a little weird now (the "teacher does" side on my anchor chart still shows everything I do, and somehow, the "students do" side is nothing.  Not ok, markers!), and that hasn't happened with my Sharpie markers (yet?  IDK.).

The only slightly misleading thing is that the purple marker turns out a little more pink than purple (see below), but it's still really vibrant and a bit of a surprise when I use it, so I like it.  

So there you have it.  I straight up can't live without my flip chart markers.  

Scoot on over to Fun in Room 4B to check out the other things teachers simply can't live without.

  2. Those are my newest favorites, too! I still love Mr. Sketch, but these are much more vibrant, aren't they? Thank you so much for linking up with me!! I love your anchor chart, too! :)
