Paper-Saving Classroom Tool

Paper saving center activity

Sick of printing out 30 copies of a printable? Are parents tired of getting tons of printables coming home in their folders? We discovered the best new way to save paper! These dry erase pockets are a wonderful new staple in our centers rotations! Sometimes, you can find them at Target or at Walmart during the back-to-school rush. I think it’s easier to snag them on Amazon.

There are many ways to use this paper-saving classroom tool. Currently, we are using them during independent centers and even during teacher-led small group. They’re a lifesaver!
