If you love Wipebooks and Wipecharts, tell me about it.
Hello – Do you love Wipecharts? Wipebooks? I would love to hear what people think about these. I am very lucky to have very small classes, but we also have no money. I can’t invest in Wipebooks and then discover that our regular graph-paper spirals are just fine. I love the idea of saving paper, but I wonder how students record notes to look back at, a strategy I encourage them to develop and use. Perhaps a paper notebook as a math journal and to record notes, and a Wipebook for in-class work? I love the idea of a Wipechart; I currently use gridded post-it flipcharts, which are <b><i>expensive</i></b>, but I love sticking them up on the wall and being able to save them and come back to them.
I teach several subjects (history, English, music), so I can imagine using the Wipechart in several ways. will it hold up? Is it as easy to separate and use separate pages around the classroom as they say? Do you tape it up? Thank you in advance for your opinions . . .
