    Mini White Boards

    White boards & dry erase markers are often easier on our SC students' hands than paper & pencil, yet they provide those good neuro benefits of writing.

    Find some great purchasing tips here from the K-8 forum!

    Yes, it's been quite the topic over there today! But truly, we love ours. The kids feel so special, getting to write their own answers and do the Math "board exercises" on their own little white boards. I just ordered two more today (one for me and one for my younger son) along with a box of fine-tipped black dry erase markers. They have been so helpful for keeping engagement, focus and enjoyment. I highly recommend them to anyone on the fence.

      I must have read the supply list wrong. I bought a mini-chalkboard. It is very cute. Should I be getting the mini-whiteboard, too?

        You will be just fine. Mini chalkboard, mini white board, mini slate ... all the same result.

        Btw, please post the link to your mini chalkboard, if you do not mind. Others might prefer this to a white board.

          This is the one we got. It is plain, but cute:
          https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
          We also got the Wikki Sticks Alphabet Cards, which are a huge hit (and making her 5th grade sister really jealous), and the Ideal School Supply Tactile Letters (which elicited a lot of "these feel funny, Mommy!" type comments). Oh and we got this raised line writing paper, which I think is AWESOME now that we have it. I so wish we had know of it before: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 This one is the grade 2-3 paper since Clara is supposed to be a 2nd grader. I am also hoping it will help her write with smaller letters!

          She had a lot of fun doing the first week of SC1, by the way!

            I also am a big utilizer of page protectors and white board markers. Not only can the same activity/practice page be done over and over, it has the same "feel" to it as a white board - very little friction allows the pen, hence the fingers/hand, to move with more ease. I do still use paper and pencil/pen to give Kate the feel of the pencil moving across the paper. But she loves the ease of white board markers on page protectors.

            I love putting pages in the page protectors and then "binding" them in report covers. The page protectors stick out further than the cover, but it doesn't bug me nor Kate. I can switch up activities or make multiple books for a variety of work.
