White board


I have an old fashioned blackboard. Which makes it SOOO hard to teach some art concepts like shading! It’s all in reverse!!


!!!! omg! That is crazy! Props to you ❤ Lol at least a chalk pastel project will make a lot of sense!

Whiteboards. Lots of them.


Clear touch smart board


Smartboard, white board. Wish I had a chalkboard. Box of dustless white chalk: 98 cents. Screeching it now and then to wake everyone up: priceless.


White board, but we also have document cameras that I use all the time.


white board

I miss my chalkboard.

I miss my chalkboard too. I have a smartboard

We have a ‘painted whiteboard’ that is more like a grey with terrible glare now. Used to have whiteboards, but with our remodel we have a Sherman Williams (I think) product now. But to get rid of the glare, they gave us a projector screen, so no more writing on the board with what is being projected unless you have a document camera also.

Maryland: No I can’t, with the way the room is set up physically there is only one spot for them to put it unless I want to constantly walk from the front to back of the room during lessons and make kids turn back and forth. .

I have 2 white boards and a "dumb" board. It worked for about 15 minutes almost 2 years ago then stopped. I kept it because it has great speakers.

Whiteboard and Smart Board

All of the above

White Board, chalk board, Promethean Board.

Smart board. I wish I had a white board too

I have a smart board and white board space.

I have the cheapest whiteboard around. It doesn't erase well.

For those that wish you had whiteboards. 10-13 bucks at the big box hardware stores, 8x4 "shower board" get smooth not textured. Lasts 2 years avoid red and blue markers. I have 3 of these hung on the wall, and two that are cut 4x4 to put graphs and diagrams I want reuse, and one that is chopped into 2x2 giant lap boards. They don't clean well without spray, but they are cheap.

I went from Smartboard to chalkboard. I'm surprised to see all the people who miss their chalkboard. I feel like I'm inhaling chalk, I hate the feel and sound of it and it gets on my butt!!!!

I had a chalk board my first year. I knew I'd put in some work when I was covered in dust.
