We're so excited to be lining up again for this month's Bright Ideas Blog Hop!
Tired of the printing, laminating, and cutting cycle that never seems to end? I can never keep up! Distressed with the wasting of paper making task cards and group lists and copies? Don't have room for a dry erase board to demonstrate math and reading tasks for small groups? We have a great tip for you!
Dry erase is NOT just for whiteboards anymore!
There are a number of ways to use dry erase markers that don't require a dry erase board. All of these work great in our classrooms and save paper; but more importantly, they save TIME.
Dry erase wall dots (you can find them on Amazon) or plastic place mats can be used when you need to illustrate something at your small group table.
Reusable dry erase pockets are a great way to post items on a bulletin board. Cut off the top flap if it has one, slip in a background paper, and write away!
Here is a plastic plate hot glued to my closet door for Math Workshop. It is super easy to write on again and again.
Give pocket charts that have been gathering dust in your closet a new life. Just place a background paper behind the plastic and write and wipe. These are used to give choices for Math Workshop.
