My favourite part about using the Wipebook Flipcharts in the mathematics classroom, is the ability to give students low floor, high ceiling and open middle problem solving questions. This means that there is an entry point for all students no matter what level they are working at.
The Wipebooks flipcharts allow students to not only think about and discuss their reflection questions, but also write out some of their ideas. We tend to retain more information when we’ve seen it, discussed it, and written it down than when doing one of those in isolation.
From the very first day I introduced the Flipcharts to my class, the students LOVED using them. They allowed students to be able to stand up, spread out and work in collaboration with their classmates. The students loved getting to work with partners in a new and exciting way.
We use our Wipebook chart paper to practice our letter formation, write our names, collaborate during writers workshop and during math centres as well. Students are able to make mistakes, quickly erase and try again. There are so many different engaging activities you can come up with for the Wipebook flipchart.
Over the summer I was introduced to the importance of incorporating vertical non-permanent surfaces into your classroom. We are 3 weeks into our 2022-2023 school year and the Wipebook Flipchart's have been used daily in our 5th grade math and science class. Flipchart's large size makes it easy for students to have space for all their work and its reusable surface erase easily.
