The second grade students I teach are learning to explore their world through reading and writing. They come to their Vallejo school eager to see their friends but not always ready to learn. I try to make learning exciting and different. We do various types of writing with different mediums throughout the year to develop student writing skills. Several years ago, I purchased a class set of magnetic white boards. I obtained the boards through a grant because most of our students come from low-income households. The magnetic white boards have been a wonderful tool. My students love using them to practice writing words and to complete math computation, but replacing white board markers is a continuous expense. The boards are also getting scratch marks on them, which is making writing on them more difficult. Also, some of the boards are becoming impossible to clean. In June 2004, I found a new resource that would eliminate my need to use the boards as white boards. These "Gel Boards" are great. I purchased a few during a teachers' conference and the students love them. The gel boards are used with a special metal tipped pen. When they are finished writing, the student just rubs the writing away. There is no chalk dust or marker chemical smell - it is WONDERFUL!
