I'll admit, at first, I thought, what's the big deal about crayons vs markers on your dry erase board. I am now a believer. The Crayola dry erase crayons offer me the ability to demonstrate coloring techniques on the board that just don't translate well with markers, like coloring in one direction, coloring lightly vs pushing hard. They give a sketchier look, and they take a little more muscle to erase, but an eraser glove is included in the package, and my cloth that I use for markers works well too. So, I give it 2 thumbs up! PS- it is rumored that my head is not on straight, so my people more often than not look like they are tipping over. And, I drew this in between turning around to quiet my students.
