Classroom DIY: New Use for Your Old Chalkboard
- Grades: PreK–K, 1–2, 3–5, 6–8
This time of year, my back-to-school to-do list is pages long, so I'm not looking for additional classroom projects. If I'm going to tackle a project, it really needs to be worth it! This year I decided I needed an alternative to the ugly and impractical chalkboard at the front of my classroom. I wanted a solution that will definitely last. Previous attempts to cover the chalkboard never made it past the first semester!
With about $35 of office store supplies, I've finally solved my chalkboard problems! All you need is some ½-inch foamboard, permanent double-stick tape, and a razor blade, and you'll be ready to transform your old chalkboard into a fully functional bulletin board. Check out my video to see how to do it! Mobile users, please go to: http://bcove.me/21fg9vhi
