Cheap, Easy & Fun make your own whiteboards

  I was perusing the giveaway tables (looking for stuff that I do not need) during the last few days of school and to my surprise I found an almost full box of Report Covers.  I can not believe someone was just going to get rid of them!!!
Cheap & easy White Board

Cheap & easy White BoardI originally got this idea from Smedley's Smorgasboard of Kindergarten.  All I had to do was use some Duct Tape  and tape around 3 sides .   Make sure you leave one side open to put the paper in.  Now you are able to put a sheet in this and the students can use it multiple times by writing over it with a dry erase marker.  You can then erase and start all over again. Insert Teacher tip! I have recently found the Mr. Clean Erasers work wonders on white boards, but as I am sure you already know, socks are another great alternative.

These have worked great!! My students love the Angry Birds theme and I know I can do the others to which ever theme may be appropriate.   Yes, I know I can do the same thing with page protectors, but the duct tape makes it look so much more fun!  You may want to do a smaller border as I notice sometimes I can not see the side of the paper.    Now, to just figure out what I am going to do with the the plastic parts (Sliding bars) that are supposed to be used to hold the papers in. Any ideas?

Just in case you are wondering, the sheets that I have in here came from Carisa at  1+1+1=1.  This is a fantastic site with lots of great free pintables.  I have blogged about her before.  You can check out that post here.
