Plywood-backed Mini-whiteboards

Useful for the classroom for a range of ages and settings:
  • Maths
  • Science
  • LOTE
  • ESL
  • Primary classrooms
Using a large mini-whiteboard (A3 or A4 size) will help 'in-the-moment instruction' at students' desks

The mini-whiteboards show up really well when filming students talking to their ideas written on the mini-whiteboards.

4 sizes of mini-whiteboards are available. These boards are plywood backed. Sometimes the laminate will chip with extended use in the classroom. The edges are sanded to make them safe to use with students. Consideration should be given to the new double-sided mini-whiteboards or the sleeve version allowing the use of templates.
