How Do You Use It? Linky

Speech Time Fun is at it again! This month, her linky party focuses on using dry erase materials. This is how I use dry erase in my therapy:

1. Markers: Dry erase markers are great for writing and wiping laminated items or even those stuck in page protectors. Wastes less paper and kids seem to love it!

2. Point Tallies: A surefire way to motivate kids in my room is to give them a dry erase board, marker and tell them to track the number of points they earn. This works for anything!  

3. Magnetalk Barrier: This is a Super Duper product that is used with the barrier backgrounds, but sometimes I like to just use the board part (because it's dry erase). I can easily create a simple barrier game, by providing directions to draw different objects and then we compare our pictures. 

4. Write and wipe: I will use dry erase boards with older kids that I want to write down their sentences rather than say them out loud. This ensures that I can see what each student is capable of without the influence of hearing others' answers.
