Today I’m linking up with the Australian Teachers blog to share teaching hacks, tips and time savers. We all know how time poor teachers are so anything that will save us a little bit of time is worth checking out! On the 26th of every month, check out the Australian Teachers blog to read lots of amazing tips to help save you some time in and out of the classroom.

One of the jobs that take up the most time in the classroom would definitely have to be laminating. I would spend countless hours through the week laminating games and activities and I often wished I could get someone else to do that tedious job for me…until I found an amazing creation!
I purchased a fairly large packet from TPT to use during my literacy rotations but it’s almost 200 pages long…I don’t even want to think about how long it would take me to laminate that many pages. Not to mention that whiteboard markers can be really hard to get off laminated sheets.
Enter the re-usable dry erase pockets. All I have to do is slip a photocopy or printout into the pocket, put out some whiteboard markers and erasers and the kids can go to town and write/rub-off until their hearts are content. The options are endless! You could grab a class set and put lined paper inside so that students can work on their letter formation.
