Finally figured out how people write so neatly on chalkboard painted surfaces!
Mini clothes hanger with a paperclip - so that's how you do it! ("hang" a scripture or "Hang on His Word")
Tutorials and DIY
Write students' names on desks with a Sharpie Paint Pen! (Write over with an Expo marker to remove it.)
projects and crafts
write on dinnerware with porcelain pen and bake...how to instructions. very cool.
Ditto, a pen that makes dots as you write! Great for teachers and parents teaching children how to write :)
Study Strategy for Vocabulary - Students write terms neatly/draw quick picture (30 secs). Use markers to make it FUN! Write definition on the right. Teach students how to study by folding paper in half lengthwise. ("Look at the picture & word. Do you remember the definition? Look on the other side. Are you right?") Keep to study throughout year. Visual helps it stick in their mind. This technique helped raise our scores 20 PTs!
