They have dry/wet erase sleeves that you can put workbooks into to make them reuseable! The marker isn't included. They seem more durable than a standard sheet protector and they are larger to accomodate the folded book.

Thanks for the tip. I've been using plastic covers from large sticker packs or from single folder games. Yay Target!

That's a great find! Those will also come in handy when making buttercream transfers for the kids' birthday cakes.

If you are making a RR order soon, there is also this option that opens from the side, so you don't have to remove workbook pages. (huge thank you to whoever mentioned this previously!)

Mine did not have them, but I was just getting together an Oriental Trading order and noticed they have them for a little over $1 each also:

Wanted to share in case other people don't have any at their Target.

I checked two Target's and couldn't find them. Hoping they are just slow in getting them out. I did find some great money flash cards and 50 State workbook though.

Didn't find them at 2 Targets here, but alot of the stuff is 70% off so I am hoping they will be there after the sale stuff gets moved out.

Those lap sized dry erase boards at Target (lined on one side and blank on the other) are magical for math, grammar, lots of things! If you end up wanting to keep a lesson for posterity, just photograph it before erasing!

I just found these at Target here in Austin, among other things. Went to Target for 10, $1 sleeves. Left Target with $65 worth of dollar bin stuff. Those dollar items add up!

I found Math Bingo, Time Bingo and 5 of the Junior Readers and they had a teaching clock there also, which I didn't need because we already have one. I was so excited about the Bingo games though. It has easy addition up to division.

I got the Math Bingo, Time Bingo, an illustrated copy of Aesop's Fables, some packs of stickers (so he can mark his best letter or word in his handwriting practice), a few puzzles, and a 4-hole organizer caddy to keep art supplies organized. I love the $1 section at Target!

Finally found the dry erase sleeves at another Target today. They didn't have any of the 70% off items, so I am thinking some Targets just don't have the new stuff out yet. I also got one of the small dry erase lap boards for practicing cursive. (My DD is just coming out of PS and was never taught cursive).

The dry erase sleeve was a pink dot item and the lap board was a red star, in case that helps anyone.

Ours also had stamps, ink pads, and self-inking stamps. Fun for toddlers!! (I need those this year, lol.) I went and didn't buy anything, because I tend to way overbuy there, so I came home to think rationally about all the shiny :lol: and I hope to go back tonight.

Just went again today, and now our Target had the dry-erase pockets. They also had...Spanish Bingo (as well as Math and Alphabet bingo), Crayola Draw and Write workbooks (each page has space above for a picture and space below to write), a bunch of classic books, a space-view of earth puzzle and a USA map puzzle, 5-minute quick quiz books, learning clocks, teacher lesson-plan books, and pocket charts. All in the $1 bin! Plus the school section had 1 subject college-ruled notebooks for $.17 and pocket folders for $.15. What a fun trip to Target!!

I went again today and still couldn't find the dry eraser pockets. I did buy a bunch of great flash cards (flags, presidents, US map, etc.). Did you see all the Dr. Seuss stuff? I bought Dr. Seuss flash cards, a Dr. Seuss card game and some pencils. The A+ workbooks are reproducible, it says so on the back. I'm excited, it saves us money in the long run because I can copy them for all our kids for future use.

Thank you for this post. I was able to pick these up yesterday!
