Every year, a new "must have" item emerges. Remember the flexible bright wristbands? Or skinny jeans? Okay, if we go back farther, remember Tickle Me Elmo? Today, the new rage is chalkboard mania. Chalkboard paint and chalkboard strips are everywhere. On today's post, we will investigate some ways that these tools can be adapted for use in the classroom.
There are chalkboard sheets and chalkboard paints. They are available in most craft stores. Chalkboard sheets were used for these classroom items.
Use special chalk markers or chalk. They easily wipe off the slick chalkboard surface with a damp cloth.
Attach the adhesive side of the chalk paper to a sheet of card stock or piece of wood. Trim off the excess.
Now it is time to have some fun.
Use it to identify groups of students for group work or guided reading.
Turn the paper into a write-and-wipe learning center station.
