I learned this little trick from my son’s 3rd grade teacher. With just a pack of sheet protectors and paper, you can make an entire class set of “whiteboards” to use in the classroom or for your own personal use when studying (I’ll talk about that part next week).
You only need three things: paper, sheet protector and whiteboard markers.
Really. That’s it. Put the paper (and this can be blank paper, lined, graph, etc) into the sheet protector. Write on top of it with a whiteboard marker, and ta daaa! Done.
- To make the sheet protector last longer, I’d suggest using an old sock or rag to wipe as opposed to a piece of tissue.
- Put a piece of hard cardboard in the back, and you can write on the surface anywhere.
- Get a metal clipboard, clip the page protector onto it and you have a portable magnet board, too!
Do you have other variations? Thoughts? Ideas? I’d love to hear from you!
Next Tuesday, I’ll show you how to use flash cards in conjunction with your white board to help you actively study.
