(their official name is The Communicator Clearboard and they are awesome!!)
The pockets erase so nicely and clean up really well. I prefer them over writing on laminated surfaces, ’cause the lamination can get some buildup over time.
I’ve been using them as part of our typical routine in spelling and it has saved time and paper in copying of graphic organizers. I love our routine and it’s very important, but all of those papers really start to add up!
So I copied our usual graphic organizers used for sorting our words, took out the boxes I usually had set up for my students, and ask them to self-sort the words (in small groups or individually)…
