Make Your Own Mini Whiteboards!
Making your own whiteboards is a great way to save money. Sure, you can purchase something more heavy duty from an art supply catalog, but if you are on a budget, these are a cinch to make!
How to Make Your Own Mini Whiteboards
- Get white paper or card stock cut it to the size you want.
- Send them off to be laminated.
I have found it’s worthwhile to head to an office supply store or professional print shop where they have a thicker lamination then what is offered at my school.
- Cut and trim lamination if necessary.
Bam! You have your own set of whiteboards for a fraction of the cost.
The best part is that there are so many ways to use these in your classroom.
- Reviewing elements and principles
- Reviewing vocabulary
- A quick assessment
- Practice drawing
- “Sketching” out ideas before you start a project
- Make a list of project steps
- As an early-finisher activity
- To create a mind map or for other brainstorming purposes
- Pictionary or other drawing games
- Art review games
If you made even smaller whiteboards or cut larger ones down, students could use them to make their own flashcards or memory game. What a fun way to review concepts in the art room.
How else could you see yourself using a class set of dry erase boards with your students? Do share!
