One thing we are trying to do a lot of is name practice. I have about 5 kids who cannot write their names. Each child (Courtesy of my awesome teaching neighbour) has their own handwriting car where they must trace and copy twice with a whiteboard marker. Then they rub out and repeat.
This was causing a bit of drama which leads me to....
To help your munchkins rub out their whiteboard marker work when it is on laminated paper, you must get yourself some of these -
These little babies are a little expensive, but if you chop them up and make small ones, you can probably make a class set out of a few packets.
I bought mine at Woolies for $4 a pack, but I managed to make 8 out of this 2 pack. And it means that the kids aren't complaining about not being able to rub out!
I hope this tip is helpful to you :) And I promise I will be back more regularly soon.
