Permanent Marker Magic!

Hi there kids! Hope you are all having a Super Saturday! I am . . . just hanging around playing on my computer and trying to get a little work done! 


Yesterday, I went in to school so I could put a few things away, and got a little distracted. I started cleaning the names off of my Homework Lotto game pieces. As I was doing this, I remembered one of my friends coming to ask me for fingernail polish remover so she could take the permanent marker off her name cards. I couldn't believe that she didn't know about this little trick! Don't worry . . . the video is only 1 minute long!




Well, what do you think? Pretty cool, huh? I love this trick because I can't stand the smell of fingernail polish!  Happy Saturday!

  10. Who knew? I always have the illegal bottle of 100% acetone hidden in the filing cabinet (SSSHHHH!) for this. Thanks so much for sharing and keeping me out of teacher jail! Oh and by the way, I really love those homophone sliders. Just these past few weeks I have been racking my brain for a good way for kids to practice. My problems are solved! You really are a Rockin' Teacher!

    1. La baie d'açai a également un certain nombre d'antioxydants qui sont excellents pour le corps, car ils aident à restaurer d'autres antioxydants déjà dans le corps comme la vitamine C, la vitamine E et le glutathion. Les flavonoïdes dans la baie aussi aider à protéger le corps contre la maladie.
