Dry erase markers on laminated paper?

Can you easily write and erase on laminated paper with dry erase markers? I know you can use Vis-A-Vis overhead markers, but I'm not sure about dry erase. I'm looking to laminate some game sheets that students would need to write on.

But don't use red - it always leaves residue for me. Also, think about how you want - or want students - to clean them. Them first year I used them I had the kids use baby wipes - well they wipes the marker off the gameboard and onto the rug where it took lots of my elbow grease to get it lightened, but not off.

Since then, they have to clean it on a placemat or on a table and I model cleaning in circles.

I use dry erase on laminated paper. The students wipe them off with dry paper towels, and once a week I have a parent volunteer clean them with the Expo spray. Every couple months, they clean them with a Mr. Clean magic eraser.

I have used them on laminate sheets before. They do leave a residue but cleans easily with Expo Cleaner or Magic Eraser. I have started using just plain water on my whiteboard and it works great!

I have my students trace their names for the first couple of weeks of school using dry erase. There is residue, so they do need to be cleaned right after writing.

Red, blue, and purple are more likely to leave residue, and all of it should be removed quickly.

The vis-a-vis markers work better, but still avoid the red, purple, & blue.

If they are not too big, put them in transparency holders. I have found that works great with dry erase markers.

When you say transparency holders, do you mean like clear page protectors?
