Dry Erase Homework Wall
I had an awesome Fashionable Friend Friday post in the works for you but I needed a little bit more time to perfect it, so I am doing a post on something that has been a HUGE "thing" around here. My girls have been BEGGING me for a dry erase/whiteboard wall. They use whiteboards in school and really wanted one at home to help them with their homework and to study. Of course, I said no about a million times. First of all, I could not imagine anything worse in the middle of our living quarters. It would just look ugly and always be an eyesore, especially with all the writing and erasers and everything else that comes along with it. However, at Christmastime I finally broke down and designated a back hallway (completely out of site from our family, visitors, actually pretty much out of site for anyone) for the whiteboard wall. I purchased removable whiteboard wall stickers (HERE) which are easy to apply and remove, in case I really regretted my decision. I got a nice container to hold all the markers and erasers and a Chinese stool for my girls to sit on or climb up on to reach the top. Well, that white board wall is such a hit. They use it for every test. They write out their notes, organize information, work out tons and tons of math problems and the list goes on and on. As much as I hate to admit, it was a huge win win and my girls tell me it helps them sooo much and takes a lot of the stress out of preparing for tests.
