The after school chaos is a common occurrence in my house! I am always looking to find ways to streamline some things in our house so that we have time for fun things! Here is what usually happens “Mommy, Mommy, I need help with my spelling – oh yeah I have a test tomorrow”. So here is the scenario…..Ah, it’s Wednesday night. You just got home from work, the kids are settling in from a long day at school. It’s now time for you to cook dinner. Then here it comes…”Mommy I have a Spelling Test tomorrow morning and I need to study.” We have some great tips that will not cost a lot of money and will make a big impact!
Where can I get a white board? Instead of paying $3.99+ at your local educational store for one 12×12 board. You can make a class set for under $20.00. Yes, I know all you need is one. However, you’ll get lots of brownie points with your child’s teacher if you give him/her the extras…hint, hint! I went to my local hardware store Home Depot and purchased sheet of shower board. Ask someone at the store if they would be kind enough and cut the large board into 12×12 individual boards. Not only can you use the white board for Spelling, handwriting, and Math problems. It’s a very creative time saver and Eco-friendly too. It’s all about saving the environment and having fun at the same time. Happy Spelling!
