This is a very simple thing that I learned while going through the BTSA program that I really liked.
I write on the white board in front of class two lists. One for math and the other for Lang. Arts. I list the students work there so they can see page numbers and make sure they have turned in all in.
I made a poster for their may do activities since my board in front is not very big.
My school is very old and still has chalkboards everywhere. There was just ugly chalkboard under here before I added sheet rock on top of it then bought this white board at GW and attached it to the wall. It works.
