Wonderfully Cheap Alternative to your standard white dry erase board

Dry erase boards can be quite expensive, even for the smaller sizes. They run anywhere from $30 to well in the hundreds. I came a cross a video that provided a great alternative called bathroom backer board. It is a tough, water-resistant board to help protect wood and maintain tile adhesion. All you need to is a pack of dry erase markers to go with it and you are good to go. Below is a listing of backer board I found on the home depot website just as an example

James Hardie
3 Ft. X 5 Ft. x.42 In. Ceramic Tile BackerBoard
Model # 220023
Store SKU# 202225



You can put it up on your wall or even cut a few smaller squares for individual practice with your little ones or independent work. If you were to purchase a dry erase board with the same measurements as backerboard example above, you would pay approx $60. If you are looking for a dry erase board for your homeschool classroom, take a trip to your local Home Depot, Lowes or home improvement store and ask for their white Bathroom Backer Board


Peace be upon you

Tomorrow we will be learning about Cubism which is an art technique. Pablo Picasso incorporated cubism in his art. After doing some research on him, I learned that his work was heavily influenced by African art and technique.
