Must Have Monday (A Day Late)-Eyelighters

I am always interested in products that other teachers use in their classrooms that they can't live without. I want this to be a place where we can share those must-haves that we use on a daily basis to engage our students. 

My number one must have is "Eyelighters." Eyelighters are plastic reading strips that highlight text. My students use them to follow along as we read, to locate information and test answers, and to eyelight vocabulary words, synonyms, opinions, etc. I love this little tool!

You can order Eyelighters with your Scholastic Book Club Bonus Points. Here is their description: Scholastic Bonus Points and Classroom Bonuses are awarded for the .... Eyelighter. Reading Strips. Yellow 6" each. 37407 Pack of 12 •. 350 Bonus PointsYou can also do an Internet search to find several companies that sell Eyelighters.
