    Whiteboard

    In the process of setting up our study area. What size/type of whiteboard would be good/recommended? Or would it not be needed to have one at all?

    Thanks!

    Lap-sized boards are our go-to. Lined on one side, blank on the other. You can buy them in multi-packs on Amazon. We’ve had our four for five years — still use them and they’re still in great shape. We bought a large wall-sized white board but, funnily enough, rarely used it. However, my kids were in the early SC levels during this time. Further on with MP, you will likely need a large wall-sized board.

      We use both the smaller mini white board and larger wall-mounted white board.

      The mini is nice for desktop use. The wall-mounted is good for vertical writing, posting the day's overview, and giving visual explanations (of anything) to more than one child. Our wall-mounted is 2'×3'.

        If you buy a wall sized one get a magnetic one. It comes in handy.

        And we use a Boogie Board instead of a small personal whiteboard. Not the fancy kind, I don't need a memory stick one. It's just the plain old tablet style. https://www.amazon.com/Boogie-Board-...1_1_sspa&psc=1

        Kindergarten is about the youngest I use a whiteboard or boogie board.

          We made a large white board for cheap.

          I used this: https://www.lowes.com/pd/23-75-in-x-...-Panel/3042205

          I had a piece of old paneling that I glued it to, then screwed the paneling to the wall. Well, I've now wasted about thirty minutes on trying to attach a picture of it. Not sure what's up with it. If you want to see it and go back far enough in my posts, I posted a bunch of pictures of my school room in early 2017, I think, and it's in there. We had the board, paint, hardware, and little trim board base all sitting around the house from my various projects, so we ended up with a huge whiteboard for less than $15.00. I use it all day everyday we do school.

            We are renting so can’t wall mount but recently bought a large (1200mmx900mm) mobile whiteboard on castors. It flips over too so I get double the whiteboard space.

            It’s been a useful help in making everything I can visual. On one side I have our art card and what piece of music we are listening to, and the Bible verse from church that week then the other side is for everything else.

            We are experimenting with teaching mostly in a group format - not very MP I know, but after the amazing success of teaching Myself and Others to all my kids together with my inability to manage everything I was doing without getting grouchy we are giving it a try and it’s showing promise. The whiteboard really helps us feel group like.

            My kids love it so much that drawing on the whiteboard is a reward, even when I’m actually getting them to do work.
