At the FPEA convention this year I bought a couple dry erase lapboard sets from Miller Pads and Paper. They work perfectly for us to practice our handwriting, spelling and work on our word families—-all at once!
If your kids complain about practicing their handwriting, try dry-erase boards. They are easy on the hands (they don’t get tired as easily) and are so much fun. We also enjoy using mini magnetic boards and mini chalkboards.
