Works For Me Wednesday (Using White Boards)

I am a chart junkie...I love them, chore charts, reading charts, calendars. The preprinted white boards are more expensive and are rarily exactly how I want them to be.

So what I do is a purchase the white boards whatever size I want and then I use permenant sharpie markers to make my lines, or in the case below my picture. Then it is on the board permenantely. I do this to give myself enough room on calendars, etc. Just do the lines, and then you can fill in the information with wipe off markers.

These are the kids reading charts. The entire picture is done on a white board with permenant markers. They then color in the completed amount with a wipe off marker. THen when they have completed the whole chart I clean off the washable markers and the permenant picture is still on there to do the chart again.





Works for me, lots more ideas at

AWESOME IDEA! I need to do this for the classroom! Do you have any idea how many times I have duplicated various charts by hand!!

Great idea! To add on, when I was teaching, I would create semi-permanent lines with wet erase markers and then the kids would use dry erase markers on top. I'm jealous of your art skills! :)

I need to learn from you I think. Oh and you do have talent in drawing LOL. I have a hard time making a stick figure LOL!! My hubby can draw though LOL.
