Wall Pops - A Substitute for Dry Erase Boards

I saw this post from Teaching with Style and I just had to have those Wall Pops.  I had been wanting another option for dry erase boards for my classroom.  It usually takes me a long time to pass out the boards and materials.  I was looking for something to save me time.  When I saw these, I knew they'd do the trick!

Well, what are they?

Giant circles that you can write on using dry erase markers.  They erase perfectly and are so motivating for students!

You can get them on Amazon.  As soon as I finished reading her post, I went right over there and ordered 3 packages.  Each package comes with 3 wall pops.  There are many different colors.  I got all green - it matches my room theme and I wouldn't have any fighting over the colors.

The circles are fairly large, so you could cut each one in half and double the number of writing spaces.

Every time my students use these, the wheels in my head are spinning on how else I could use them.  I have 9 set up around my reading group table.  It works perfectly because my largest reading group has 9 students, so every child has a dot.

Here are a few ways that I've used them in my classroom:
-practice writing words during reading group
-practice math problems
-answer a question after reading a book instead of using a post-it
-practice dictation sentences

How would you use these in your classroom?

Now, let me remind you about the 3 giveaways going on right now.  You have a few more days left to enter all of them!  Enter now!
