Do you want a chalkboard that is light as a feather, easy to move, and doesn't cause injuries? Then you want a Wallies chalkboard. These chalkboards are perfect for homeschools, offices and bedrooms. They are easy to move and you can write on them with regular chalk. I tired the Wallie chalkboard in different ways. I did this while carrying my new born in a sling. Now you know it is easy.
There was not much do in terms of perparation for these giant stickers. You just remove them from the clear box, peel a small part off from the backing and voila you have a classroom. I tried writing on the chalkboard right away and it was nice and smooth. It is important to smooth the sticker out in small secitons as you work. Also you can't use side walk chalk on these chalkboards.
My cousin took these picture. Can you see my newborn in the sling?
|MyWallie chalkboard is ready for some accessories!|
|These strips come in various patterns, themes, and sizes. All you need are a pair of scissors and tape. You can create a border that changes or have one that stays year round.|
|Wallies carries a variety of shapes and sizes. (They have the solar system, trees, animals, you name it!) This set comes in four. I wish I had known about these in my public teaching days!|
The news is out that I am homeschooling our son for the first time. We have a lot of work ahead of us. Today we set up the room (see below). We also picked a name for the school - Home (Sweet) School. I am sure there a millions others who have picked that name. Thank goodness Urban Bubbles sent me those chalkboards from Wallies. It was lots of fun. Get ready for our Home (Sweet) School tour. So excited.
Here are some before shots: (This room was used as a playroom/craft room for the past year.)
Now it looks like this:
|My second said he wanted to model - with his shirt off. Can you see our new word wall?|
|Our new word wall. We will only keep new words on the board until they learn them.|
|I used cushions to hide my supplies and made a reading nook. The kids started using it right away!|
Storage for our stuff. Each subject has a shelf. I love being this organized!
|Another place (filing cabinet) to make words.|
|I keep a school picture to remind me of what worked and didn't for me.|
|Quiet work station.|
