Today, we are sharing some bright ideas that may be useful in your classroom.
Dry Erase Boards
We love to use dry erase boards in the classroom. The problem is that they are too heavy for students to pass out. Sometimes you can still see old ink that is hard to remove.
Here's an idea. You can use plastic plates or frisbees! They are light- weight, colorful and easy to clean.
I got frisbees from Walmart. These were $1 for each one. Students can write on the back side. You can use them during language arts or math. For extra fun, do not clean them right away. Take them out to recess and have students play with them. The person who catches the frisbee gets to read a word that is written on it. You can plan it to where they get to practice their spelling words, cvc words, sight words, etc.
I tried several brands of dry erase markers. I found that the neon dry erase markers were very easy to wipe off, even after 48 hours.
Use Plastic Plates
You can also use plastic plates as dry erase boards. You can get them at the dollar store at about 4 for a dollar. These are cheaper, but not as easy to clean as the frisbees. The frisbees only required one stroke to wipe the ink off. The plates smeared first and then wiped off better the second or third time.
Easy to Use
I love them! They are very easy to use :)
Stack Them Up
These plastic frisbees and plates are very light weight. A student helper can collect them from the other students quicker than the traditional wood boards. That's it. Just find a place to store them and stack them up.
