Can't Live Without It!

Whoo! Vacation! (Well, close-we have PD days Monday and Tuesday, but I like those so it still feels like vacation!)

I'm linking up with Fun in Room 4B's new linky today!
What I can't live without is grading pens!

Now I have a stack of Bic Flairs that I love-and I bought the big pack a couple of years ago...
But I've found a new set of grading pens that I'm head over heels for.

Meet my new grading BFF...the G2.
I first got these as a present from a teamie (a set with the 4 colors on the right).

I love the colors and how they right-they're a gel that almost never skips when you write. The colors look great and the kids like to see which one I'll pick next :)

A couple of weeks ago, I had to put in another purchase order to get more expo markers-since my kids have been going through them like crazy people (we get a budget amount to spend at the end of the year for supplies-I still had some left over), but I needed to reach $50 in order for it to go through.

Perfect time, I thought, to pick up more of these beauties!

I LOVE them. The new colors (along with duplicates of the ones I already have) are just as bright, and now I extras when my favorites run out. I highly recommend these pens! They make my grading more fun, as I switch colors for every paper-makes my grading sheets look very interesting! :)

What can't you live without?

Smiles and Sunshine,


  1. I am obsessed with pens! B2's and Flairs are some of my favorites! As long as there is a purple pen, I'm good!

  2. I love Flair pens! I always stock up at the beginning of the year when Staples has them marked for $5 for the pack. I think I'll be checking out the G2 pens since you love them even more than Flair pens. Thank you for linking up!! :)

  3. I'm all about Frixion pens. True that they don't always have the best ink flow, but I love being able to erase, which I need to do often... Thanks for sharing!
