Teacher Tool Gift Exchange Linky

This past weekend, I joined over 100 teachers for the Spring Blogger Meet Up at the French Lick Resort in French Lick, IN. It was AMAZING!!! During the meet up, we all brought our favorite teaching tool and did a swap with other teachers in our grade level. My teacher tool gift came from Emily who blogs at A Neighborhood Kindergarten. This weekend was my first time meeting Emily and she is SOOOO sweet and I love her little accent!! Go check out her blog, because she has some great ideas and her classroom looks like it's a ball!
At the teacher tool swap, I received some Frixion markers, Cadbury Creme Eggs, and a TPT gift certificate to her store
Have you seen these Pilot Frixion Colors Erasable MarkersThe Frixion markers are not only colorful, but erasable!! Emily says she uses them a lot with anchor charts, so if you mess up, it's no big deal! This reminded a lot of us of the erasable pens that we used to use in grade school. I LOVE these markers and will be using them ALL the time!!

They really do erase!! How cool is that?!?! My new favorite thing!! 
I just had to use them one more time!!
Emily had asked her students for suggestions about what to bring as her teacher tool swap gift. A little girl named Gigi really thought hard about this and came in the next day telling her about these really cool chocolate eggs she saw that she thought a teacher would really like. How cute is that!
I also got $5 to spend in Emily's store, so I think I'm going to get her Beginning Sound QR codes. I love that it integrates technology into literacy and my students already know how to use a QR code reader. This will be great extra practice for a few of mine that are still mastering beginning sounds. 
Check back soon, because we'll be doing another link up where you can see all the fun we had in French Lick!
