Reusable Dry Erase Pockets

So excited to share these with you!  I was contacted by My Binding to test-drive their new Reusable Dry Erase Pockets.  I received a package of 5 multi-colored pockets in return for my honest review.


I got right to work, testing them out!  I used regular Expo markers and the Target-version of Magic Erasers (which I use on my white board).

An 8 1/2 x 11 piece of paper slides smoothly into the pockets!

 They were very easy to write on and wipe off.

 I was actually quite surprised with how easily the marker wiped off.  Usually on the white boards, I have to apply a little pressure in order for it to erase completely.  Not the case with these pockets.  It also didn't leave any residue behind, which was nice.  That can get a little dirty after a while!

Then the kids got to work on them.




They have already requested that I add this as a spelling center!  The pockets are very durable, so I don't mind letting my kids get a hold of them!  Each pocket also has a hole at the top, so it can be hung up on a hook in your classroom.   Click here to check out the Reusable Dry Erase Pockets on My Binding!

Psstt...the cute word activities you see above can be found here in my TpT store!

  5. These are amazing. I have been using them for 10 years. Check out the selection from EAI Education:

    They open from the side as opposed to the top which makes it very easy for kids to load and reload the sleeves on their own. They even have books of templates by grade level to use with the sleeves. I HIGHLY recommend EAI's version.

  6. These are great. I have a class set to save on paper next year and years to come. I started out with a few and used them for math centers and then at the end of this year I ordered a class set for next year. I am so excited. Great post! Great Review! :)
