Affordable Dry Erase Board

Affordable Dry Erase Board

December 22, 2012
Hi everyone…I wanted to thank you for the sweet words of wisdom the other day. I read your comments again and again. I cherish your advice and thoughts more than I can express.
I have a lot of little things to share from our classroom…and now we are on break so I can get started. 🙂
For some reason, I always find myself giving my room an uplift this time of year. Must be because that lovely month of organization is close at hand–January!
I’ve been looking around the room and re-purposing some items and downsizing others…like my old showerboard/dry erase board:
(That’s an old picture…the board isn’t looking so great these days, it’s all markerish now). 
So one of our newest additions to the class is a new whiteboard…of sorts:
They’re are actually little whiteboard panels I lined up and hot glued to our bulletin board. 
And do you know what they are made of?
They are those foam boards used for presentations, but with a dry erase surface! (Do you ever get an idea in your head about something, google it, and find that it actually exists?? Best feeling!). You can see them here: Elmer’s Dry Erase Foam Boards.
These boards come in packs of two, are very light-weight, and can be configured in a number of different ways. The three lined up together are the perfect size for us to use for notes or with our computer projector…
(They’re not as crooked as they look in this picture, I promise, though they definitely aren’t perfect…I’ve been working on letting go of my type-A tendencies, haha!)

The dry erase surface is better than I even expected and erases very nicely (we use those Mr. Clean Magic Erasers). 
The only downfall? We have to be careful of the cracks between each board…if they get too much marker on them, they may not erase (since they’re at the very edge of that foam board). We’ve talked about this in class and the students are great about not writing over the borders. 
I have some other plans for these boards, which I will be sure to share in the new year. 🙂
What do you like to use your dry erase boards for?

    Very clever. I mainly don't write on the board for lessons anymore. My screen takes up a good portion and I use the ladybug / projector/ computer… What is always on the board are my objectives, my magnets of kids done/ not done, date, and homework.

    Another inexpesive option is found at the lumber yard….it is a white bathboard. We have used them as large white boards and we have also had the lumber yard cut them in 9 x 12 size for lapboards. Just another idea!!

    Great way to add another wipe off board to your room!

    I read on Pinterest that you can clean whiteboards with air freshener. It sounds weird, but it really works!

  • Kelley Cirrito December 24, 2012 at 1:57 am

    What a great idea!! You are so crafty! I hope you have a great holiday!!

  • The Wild Rumpus December 24, 2012 at 2:11 am

    Kristen–I love this. My Smartboard has attacked the whiteboard space, and I love this creative solution!

  • Lisa Mattes December 24, 2012 at 3:31 am

    I love whiteboards! This is great!! You are truly incredible, Kristen. I've been stalking you for quite some time and just love so many things about you! Your knack for graphics is just completely incredible and your generosity is sooo appreciated!!! Thank you so much for all you do!

    I love this idea. I basically use my dry erase board to project my doc cam on. I have a gazillion dry erase boards all over my room, all shapes and sizes but I am a bit "A type" with them and have a hard time letting the kids write on them. HOWEVER, I think I would so let them have at it with these

    My big white board is sectioned off with ribbon. I was thinking if you wanted you could put tape or ribbon over the creases and have each board be for a different subject, or activity. Shrugs, just an idea. Though I totally get the appeal of putting them together to have one bog board. I am curious to see what else you will do with them.
