I don't know about you but I love having a clipboard for every child in my class but holy moly that can get expensive!
- bulldog clips or binder clips (the binder clips are cheaper)
- 9 x 12 hardboard panel
- You could have boards cut at your local hardware store – but I like having the board's edges already sanded and smooth
I use clipboards for guided drawings, group work, writing. . . . the list goes on!
A subscriber, Danielle, wrote me and said she was taking this idea and using it with her white boards. Every student has a white board in their chair pocket. (Check HERE for my DIY White boards) She is going to add a bulldog clip to their white boards – and voila! It doubles as a clipboard! Brilliant! Thank you Danielle!
