One product that I have used every day with students for years is a good sheet to help the kids write their name, track the weather, and the date. I found these Center Daily sheets to be so easy on a day-to-day basis for the kids and adults.
I found laminating them works best for everyday use and saving on resources. For some of my students who don’t know how to write their name yet, I would write their name in yellow highlighter before I laminated their sheet.
Lamination isn’t a perfect surface for dry-erase or wet-erase markers even with the dry-erase cleaner, and after a while there can be a little color build-up. A cleaner such as window cleaner usually does the trick.
