Both whiteboards and bulletin boards are practical and effective ways to engage with students. One uses dry erase markers so teachers can display how to solve a math problem, share important facts and visually explain how things work. Whiteboards are also great tools for collaborative work during group projects, skill assesssments for individual students to demonstrate problem solving, plus so much more. Bulletin boards are places for centralized communication, where important school or class dates and events are posted. They serve as reminders for students, but also a place to highlight student achievements, classroom themes and school spirit. The low maintenance and long life of whiteboards and bulletin boards makes them a cost effective addition to any classroom.
