Has anyone ever used these? As a SPED teacher there are times when I want to highlight something in a textbook for one of my students. I ordered some of these but I just wonder if they're going to work. I probably should have asked before I ordered them!

I just got some this year. They're made by Crayola. They're great for highlighting who hasn't turned in work on my daily record sheets and for highlighting things on the kids' papers. They erase well on those, but they don't erase well in textbooks. I used mine this week in a reading group with guided reading books, and oops! It didn't erase. I do love them for a lot of things, but don't use them in textbooks.

I'll be so disappointed if they don't work! I ordered the Pilot FriXion brand.

I have never heard of the eraseable higlighters, but have used the Pilot F. eraseable black pens, and they really do erase.

we use the highlighter tape. Seems to be working well. I keep the textbooks once we highlight in them and give them the next year to a sped student.

I bought cheap ones I found at the local dollar store one year. If you have that kind, you might not want to use them in the textbooks. The paper got ripply (is that even a word?) from the wetness. I use the highlighter tape now.

I've used these on regular worksheets, and they worked fine.

I've never used the erasable markers, but I'd just use the tape. IT comes up clean.

I know you can get it at Really good stuff. I'm sure you can get it elsewhere--and probably cheaper.

I just bought some erasable highlighters at Staples. My intention is to use them in their writing notebooks for editing. The package comes with three different colors. I thought I'd use one color for spelling errors and the others for other editing mistakes. I can erase the highlighting as I recheck it to see if they made accurate corrections. I'm sure there are lots of other uses for them. They have erased nicely on everything I have used them on. My DD and I discussed using them on the college texts she rented this year. The only issue I could think of is that I'm not sure if there is a time limit to the ink becoming permanent and unerasable.

I am using these in kindergarten and calling them lasers to highlight their sight words and catch them. I have been using them on copied books and it works great. I don't dare use them on hardback in case I would ruin them.
