More Room for Writing: How to Get More Whiteboard Space. An easy, inexpensive solution to not having enough white board space in your classroom.
For those of you who have chalkboards and hate them or just never have enough whiteboard space, now you can add more!

More Room for Writing: How to Get More Whiteboard Space. An easy, inexpensive solution to not having enough white board space in your classroom. Lowe's and Home Depot (and any other similar store I'm sure) sell a construction material called shower board that works just like a whiteboard, meaning it's white and you can write on it and wipe it off just like a regular white board.

It comes in large sheets, maybe 4 x 12 feet or so, but they will cut it in the store for you into as many pieces/to whatever sizes you want. I had one sheet cut into six (about 2 x 3 feet). They are the perfect size for propping up on a chalkboard or whiteboard ledge.

I bought my shower board when I only had a chalkboard and not even much of that. Chalk = asthma and dusty fingers so I knew I needed another solution.

Another plus is you can write things out ahead of time and then put them up on your chalkboard or whiteboard ledge as needed (and then just stand them below when not needed as seen above). If you are in a district where you need to post your objective everyday but don't have a lot of board space this is very handy. 

You can also use them with the students when they are working in groups for playing Pictionary, solving math problems, anything for which you would use a mini whiteboard.
