There are several things we would all call essentials for homeschooling. You know, items like: curriculum, children, and a desire to homeschool, to name a few.
But, beyond that, there are different items we all find to be our “homeschooling essentials”.
One of my top on must-haves is my dry erase board.
Isn’t she beautiful? Mr. Muscles did such a wonderful job!
During our move this past spring, I found out just how much I use, and need, my dry erase board! Every day I found myself saying, “This would be so much easier to show you if I had my board!”.
I use it for our daily handwriting verse, math examples, diagraming sentences, Spanish lessons, daily lists, assignments, planning, and so much more. See, almost as essential as breathing!
This baby was super easy, and inexpensive to make.
We purchased a 4’x8′ sheet of white board from the local home improvement store for around $12.00. Hubs cut it down to 4’x5′ to fit it into the space we had. I would have preferred it staying full size!
He made a frame out of 1″x2″ pieces of wood that he sanded smooth and routed off the edges. He also made ledge on bottom. He routed out a groove to hold my markers and eraser. It was bought, put together and usable in one afternoon.
