Indivudal White Board Bags


Setting up indivudal white board bags for students- to help with behavior and classroom management

Markers, white boards, and erasers are a HUGE hassle in my classroom. I was so tired of the 10 minutes it took to pass them out and clean them up. So, I started brainstorming.
I have found the easiest way to deal with dry erase boards is to bag them all up. 

You will need: 
EXPO Markers
Ziploc Bags (freezer size)
Sock
White Board

Instead of passing out boards, markers, and erasers every single time you're using these bags, why not bag them all up.

My students are quite messy putting their bags back in.
Last year, when I taught Kindergarten, I would put them back in for them and stand each bag up neatly and tidy... but this year, I decided that I didn't feel like doing that two times a day, so I remind students that if they tear these bags up and lose the markers and socks, we won't be buying new ones to fix them up!

Unless your students are ANGELS, you will hear the argument over who gets what color, but I just call up each group and tell them to grab the bag on top. 

"You get what you get, and you don't throw a fit!"

  1. We have the same phones, but I got them at Lakeshore. We call them, "magic phones" & the kids LOVE them! Nice to see them around!
