One of my favorite classroom tools is our Boogie Boards!! These LCD tablets are great for student engagement because they can be used just like paper but they are techy so students love them! Boogie Boards are great for learning in the classroom, but they’re also great for learning in the summer and preventing the summer slide!
Tip 1: Practice your letters!! For kids who are getting to enter kindergarten or have just finished kindergarten, have them practice their letters on the Boogie Board! You can even say a letter and have them write that letter, or say a sound and they can write the letter for that sound. If you’re on a road trip, have them write letters they see!!!
Tip 2: Practice your shapes! Have kids
draw shapes they see or the shapes you name or describe!
Tip 3: Practice those names! Boogie Boards are a great way to practice name writing, especially for kids who are headed off to kindergarten in the fall!
Tip 4: Sight Words! Have kids write
sight words! You can name sight
words and they spell the words.
Or you can have them find sight words
and write the words! Play Road
Trippin’ Sight Words! Have kids look
for sight words on road signs and
write the words they see!
Tip 5: Story Time! Have kids draw a picture and tell a story to go with the picture! This is great practice for reading comprehension and writing stories! You can have them draw a picture of something they did that day and tell about their day or have them make up a story for their picture!
Tip 6: Math! Write math problems on the
Boogie Board and have kids solve the problems!
You can even tell them the problem and have
them write the problem and solve!!
And you can just let your kids draw and create with the Boogie Boards! Let them use their imagination to create stories and magical places!
