Wow – now I have them, I wonder how I ever managed without them! Well, actually I can remember life before mini-whiteboards quite clearly and to be honest, it wasn’t all that bad!
Mini-whiteboards are another one of those resources which you can use over and over again for a variety of different activities. They’re cheap (pieces of white paper laminated), easy to clean and environmentally friendly. I made a set of four, so that students can use them individually, in pairs or in groups of three depending on my class size and I’ve used them A LOT so far…
With VYLs, we used them to practise writing numbers. I said the number, and they had to write it – simple.
With YLS, we did a spelling race of the new vocabulary we’d learnt.
With teens, we played Las Vegas Grammar and they wrote their answers on there.
With adults, we did a Word Transformation activity (which you can find in the Vocab section here) and teams had to write the correct word as quickly as possible.
