We use them every single day in our classrooms-EXPO markers. Our students use them, they bring in fresh new packs at the beginning of the year, and we cross our fingers that they last all year. My goal was always to make them last, make them easy to use in the classroom, and for them to be a tool that is easy to implement! Let me share 4 easy teacher hacks for EXPO markers with ink indicators that you are SURE to love!
1. Pom Pom Erasers
Hot glue pom poms to the ends and use them as erasers. You now have two-in-one! I found that 1 inch works best!
2. Ink Saving Storage
Did you know that storing the markers sideways is actually the BEST way to preserve the ink and marker? I used to always store mine with the tip pointing down, but not anymore! They always lay on their side, now. No more dry markers!
3. Sock Erasers
Throw them in a sock and store them together to use the sock as an eraser. Now you only have one thing to pass out.
4. Washi Tape
Mark them with washi tape to know which are your teacher markers and which are kid markers. No more markers that grow legs and walk-off!
If you are looking for the best EXPO marker out there, the new ink indicator markers are my absolute favorite! Not only do they write with those same three widths of lines we all love and still are low-odor, but they tell me when they are running out of ink with their clear end barrel. Do you mean no more guessing? Yes, please! They come in six fabulous colors and you can find them on Amazon HERE.
