Works For Me Wednesday



We have lots of Pre-School workbooks around the house for my daughter. I love the concept but I don't like the fact that you can only do each page once the you are done with it. What if she doesn't understand?? I can't go back and help her redo it until she grasps the concept. I think I found the solution. Now, I can't take credit for the idea because I got it from someone else!!


All it takes is a big binder, a dry erase marker, and lots of page protectors....

You tear the pages from here:

And put them in here:


Now when your child is finished with the activity all they have to do is wipe off the page and it's ready for another try!!

  1. What a great idea. My daughter has a habit of finding her books and coloring in them so this would help a lot with that. I am going to do this next week so i have them ready for the school year.

    I linked to your blog on my no yelling post. Your posts were so good that I had to.

  3. I like this idea and will have to use it. I have done this at work for daily to do lists. Thought about doing it at home too.

  4. Saw this tip somewhere else recently, and I picked up a package of 50 sheet protectors the other day at Wal-Mart. :) I also plan on using these for some of my older kids' workbooks. We homeschool, and I am tired of wasting time and paper making copies--but want to use those workbooks for multiple children!

  7. This is a great idea! It also works well when you have more than one child using the same workbook.
