Happy Tuesday! Time to link up with my sweetest friend Holly for her Tried It Tuesday!
This linky is great because it's basically like reviews of what works and what doesn't at your fingertips!
I've always had a class set of dry erase boards, but this last set I've had for about 8 years and they were tired looking! I use my boards or my student desks almost every day, but I didn't want to spend over a $100 on a new set so......I finally TRIED the shower board!
You know my husband works at Lowe's, but I've never tried it! LOL! Honestly, I wasn't sure how well they'd work, so I was hesitant, but then I thought for less than $15, it's worth a try!!!
Here they are:
What do you notice about that beautiful border?? My sweet, favorite childhood teacher (Mrs. Barnette) helped me wrap these babies!
The duct tape isn't necessary, but it definitely gives it a polished look and softens the corners.
Lowe's has a 4'x8' shower board for $13.47. They cut mine into 12"x12" squares, making 32 dry erase boards. I got the gorgeous HIGH HEEL duct tape on clearance for a $1, plus I had two rolls from sweet friends that saw it and immediately thought of me...I wonder why??!!
If you haven't tried the shower board and you want to make the learning in your classroom more exciting, go get one...tonight!
Quick, easy way to assess your students and they're FUN!
***I always give my students 1 minute of doodle time before I begin my lesson so they can get it out of their systems, otherwise they're too tempted to draw! If I catch them "doodling", I take away their board and they have to use BORING paper...it will only have to happen ONCE in your classroom-I pinky swear! :)
Have a super week friends!
