Wish List

Our classroom uses dry erase markers a lot and we have gone through most of them so far. We use them for learning sight words, word families, addition, subtraction, and quick jots of what we have learned that day. If you are able, may I ask for the following items to help our classroom continue these fun learning activities. 
-baby wipes for cleaning tables after we do dry erase work on the table tops
-dry erase markers
Thank you!
