Chalkboard - Lined Dry Erase Boards: LargeAs a teacher I often had difficulties using chalk boards – the board was often dirty and needed a thorough clean, my duster was old and smudged chalk around instead of cleaning it, the chalks were often broken when I came to use them and I had to write at a certain angle in order for my writing to be eligible.

Then there were the boards with the large pads of paper. These were useful if you wanted to prepare a few different pages to use throughout a session, but flicking between the pages is a waste of time and paper.

In contrast, the smooth surface and simple design makes erase boards easier to use. You simply take the lid off, write and then wipe clean when you are done!

I love the idea of the permanent lines, to encourage organization and neater writing! Even as a teacher myself, sometimes my handwriting is not as straight as I would like it to be. The permanent lines can also serve to separate the board into various segments, allowing students to present their work.

Reply

Hi Joo,
I would have to agree with you when it comes to writing. It is really hard to write straight on whiteboards.
I love your suggestion about presenting students work.
Thank you so much for reading and commenting.

OMG I remember those old chalk boards when I was a kid. I used to love them cause of the mess they made 🙂 But I also remember us having to go outside and clean the bushes.

Ok enough nostalgia. The white boards are much better. I really like the idea of the permanent lines as it helps to keep information grouped together, either for classrooms or boardrooms.

While I agree that whiteboards are so much more economical, my inner 8 year old still wants the cloud of pink dust from the chalk.

Hi there Mercedus,
It looks like you really enjoyed reading my different posts.
It is wonderful that I was able to take you back to those childhood moments. I too share those memories with you.
Although those memories are precious, I think you would agree with me when I say that those actions are not productive in a working environment?
Thank you for you comment. Take care and I hope you have a wonderful day.

I love the idea of schools using the erase boards instead of chalk boards. Chalk boards are such a mess and as a student they were hard to read. Erase boards have a much crisper contrast between the board and the ink. Love it, thank you for sharing.

Hi, thank you for your comment.
Yes chalk boards were very messy and hard to read.
I like the modern options.

I love the site about going green. Educational boards have come a long way over the years and dry erase boards word so well in a teaching environment. Not that these are green, but I wouldn’t be surprised if most educational boards in the near future are all video or touch screen as we are starting to see some of that now. Thanks, Curtis

Hi there Curtis,
It is funny that you say that. Some schools have what they call ‘interactive whiteboards’ installed in all classrooms as part of there ICT policy. Often they have them as well as the standard erase boards; this provides teachers with a wider variety of teaching options.
The interactive boards are very popular in the schools in England. I think it is catching on here in the USA, but I don’t see them as often.
Either way, these whiteboArds would be a great as the main board or an addition teaching resource.
Thank you for reading and commenting.

I love my dry erase board and highly recommend them to pretty much anyone out there. They are so much better than tear off worksheets and so much more adaptable since you can easily erase and update pieces and parts on the fly!

Out of curiosity, do you have any recommendations to keep certain markers from “staining” the board long term? I’m talking about dry erase formulated markers, not the accidental sharpe. When the ink is left on for a long time it tends to just stay there…

Hi Craig, I am really pleased that you are enjoying your erase board and that it is helping you.
I absolutely do have a recommendation for you – try wiping them clean with an natural (vinegar and essential oil based) all purpose spray.
If you would like to try making your own, you can use this recipe:
In a glass spray bottle (or BPA free plastic bottle) add 1/4 cup of white cleaning vinegar, 1 1/2 cups of distilled water and 30 drops of PURE lemon essential oil. Shake to combine, spray on surface and wipe clean.
I use this cleaning spray every day and its great.
Just remember that vinegar is not technically a disinfectant. If you feel like you have some extra bacteria in the house that needs killing (e.g. you or a loved one have a cold), then simply add a little bit (about 2%) of hydrogen peroxide to the cleaner. Hydrogen peroxide is a fantastic natural alternative to bleach.
I hope you like using it as much as I do!

Hi Catherine,
I was looking into Line Dry Erase Boards. I am glad I ran into our review. Thank you.

My little one is allergic to the classroom. We plan to have a certified homeschooling teacher to teach him at home this year. Definitely will buy a midsize one before the school start.

Thanks again for the nice review.

Hi Maun,
I am just glad that this review could be of use to you.
I agree with homeschooling and am happy to hear that your little one will be getting that fortunate educational experience.
As a teacher, I would suggest ensuring your little one has ample opportunities to socialise in large groups.
This is an important life skill that many homeschool children don’t have the opportunity to develop.
It can easily be achieved by joining some kind of weekly activity group – cubs, scouts, girl guides, etc.
I am glad that this post was useful to you.
Kind regards and all the best.

Wow, this is the first time I heard about this! I particularly like the permanent lines and the fact that they are more eco-friendly. I have been trying to live in a more environmental-friendly way and that’s why I find the information you shared helpful! Thank you and I am going to show this to my husband! (he runs his own business)

I remember using dry erase boards in my classroom, but they were not lined. It’s good to know that the lined ones are available. The kids enjoyed using the small ones for group work and individual activities. Knowing now that these dry erase boards are ideal green products, they are worth promoting when we recognize “Earth Day at school.”

Hi Carol,
It is always great having feedback from teachers as you are often very familiar with these products.
That is such a fantastic idea – maybe the lessons that day could be completed on whiteboards instead of on paper.
If you ever have any questions, please feel free to ask.
Thank you so much for reading and commenting.
Take care.

As a kid I always hated chalk boards. As I am a guy that likes to be with clean hands when I was using them at school it frustrated me all the time so when we started to use dry erase boards in university it was a revelation. Very nice and informative article. Thank you for the share.

Love the idea of a lined dry erase board! This makes my organizational side very happy.

I have long suspected that dry erase boards are more efficient and cost effective than chalk boards. I think more people will get in on this when they see how many options are out there.

Do you have any recommended markers? The ones I have tried before never seemed very good in the long run.

Reply

Hi there Jacob,
Thank you for your comment. There are so many options out there. I like these because they are cheeper that electronic options.
Sorry to hear you have had negative experiences with markers.

I personally prefer to use the non-toxic alternative to dry erase markers – chalk erase markers. If you click on this link it will take you to a place where you can see the cost of them.
Chalk markers are great and I think they work just as well as the toxic alternatives. They also work well on chalkboards and windows.

If you are looking for regular erase marker – chizel tips I would recommend the EXPO 80699 Low-Odor Dry Erase Markers which can be purchased here.

If you are looking for regular erase marker – fine point i would recomend the EXPO 86603 Low Odor Dry Erase Marker, Fine Point

I hope this helps you. Thank you for reading and commenting.

Hi Cat, this post is very true! Those chalk boards are extremely annoying when you have to write them with chalk; I’ll save the chalkboards for MITOpenCourseWare! Thanks.
