Next school year, I'm considering banning kids bringing markers. Yes, I want to be that teacher. At the beginning of the year, and even last year, I didn't have a problem with it. Crayons and colored pencils are fairly standard at the school, but this year markers in the classroom have caused such drama. Kids obsess over their markers to the point I don't think they're at the point of maturity of being able to calmly keep personal markers from home in their possession. Do you allow students to bring little extras like that?
