It was truly amazing to see my students armed with whiteboard dry erase markers working together toward a common goal. Creating supply lists for props to make.
I recently saw that Wipebook offered a partnership program where I could get to try our a product for free in exchange for a short review on how my students and I used it in the classroom. One quick application later and I received Wipebook reusable Flipchart pages to try out with them. I wanted to say first, how excited I was to be selected. Second, how excited my kids were about my excitement. My students dove in! We used almost all the pages during planning time for reader’s theatre.
Group work everywhere
Each group worked together and brainstormed in the spaces they picked. Some groups set up on the floor while some set up in the hall outside our classroom (that very not-in-the-way space at all haha). They got some painter’s tape and set to work. It's nice to have a tool that allows for student's to chose where they feel comfortable to complete a task, it allows them to focus. Not something we could do easily with paper, not to mention how easy those pages are to lose.
Lists and Doodles
It was truly amazing to see my students armed with whiteboard dry erase markers working together toward a common goal. Creating supply lists for props to make. Creating standing mapping for where they should be during their plays. Without Wipebook, this would have been very difficult to accomplish.
Save It For Later
My students were all able to have their voices and ideas heard. I loved using this eco friendly tool as we could store them for the next day. I also took photos of the boards to save for later. The Wipebook Scan App works very well to do this and keep track of their work. Every classroom needs a set of these! We used them for playing math games, marking areas in the classroom for math votes, and having them up just for free time doodles. Can't wait to keep using these in the fall and see what new ways I can incorporate them in my lessons.
