I stopped in the Container Store this past weekend to pick up some reusable pouches for storing my flashcards in and found this wonderful product – Reusable Dry Erase Pockets. If you have not hopped on the iPad train, then these can be a great time and money saver for you. All you have to do is slip a worksheet into the pocket and then your student can complete it using a dry erase marker. I usually copy worksheets in black and white to save money on ink, but now I’m thinking I will print off one of each worksheet in color on card stock so that I can reuse it over and over again in these handy pockets. Not only will it save you ink, paper, and time making copies, it also makes the worksheet seem a little more exciting – kids always love using dry erase markers! The set of five was just $10.99 at the Container Store and with a quick google search I was able to spot them on Amazon, at Walmart, and at Target.
These would be perfect for to use with our new Easter Printable Worksheet, just print one in color and you’re set to use it with as many students as you want. You can also print off so of the wonderful worksheets at Fun and Learn Music or from any of the other wonderful piano blogs out there. I’m looking forward to using these with my students!

Funny! I was going to blog about these too! I bought mine at Oriental Trading. They are great, aren’t they? 🙂
I’ve always used plastic sheet protectors to do the same thing, but I like the idea of having a grommet for hanging! Maybe they would last longer, too.
